My boyfriend booked the tour, and our driver and guide, Ahmed, was very good about cluing us into what was next. We circled the island of Barbados counterclockwise as he shared what he knew about each location. We drove through each of the eleven provinces as we made our way around the island. He truly did cater our private tour to what we wanted and needed, including bathroom breaks. We hopped out and into the car for each stop, and Ahmed was often there to open the door for me. He even took many photos of me and my boyfriend on our cell phone. I was delighted he got so many couple shots of us in Barbados.
Amazingly, he got us into the festivities of a local celebration in Speightstown. Ahmed led us through town in such a way only a friend would lead you. We were able to see the town in its full-on celebration mode. We saw local ladies wearing their brightly colored dresses, and families with their adorable children. We got to sample two treats that I had never heard of before. We ate conkie and hot fish cake. I felt like I got to experience Barbados in a way that most tourists rarely do. Thank you Ahmed! Ahmed is a classy, knowledgeable, energetic, polite and courteous guide. He picks you up from your hotel and takes you around in his very clean Honda.

A very detailed and personal insight from Ahmed with a huge amount fitted in over the half day.

Very clean car, a tour to savour with someone who really loves the island and has taken the time to learn pretty much everything about Barbados and its history.

Only downside for us was that masks were required inside the car as well as outside. But that's Covid restrictions for you whether they make sense or not! The price you pay for such a great half day.

We had such a great time on this tour. Ahmed was amazing! We told him want we wanted out of the tour and he went above and beyond to make it happen. He was able to show us the whole island in a few hours and had so many interesting facts to share. He was also an excellent photographer! We highly recommend this tour and Ahmed.

Getting right to the issue……right from the beginning of our tour, Ahmen was condescending and rude When asked a question, He was sarcastic and degrading. His attitude was so consistent and beyond professional, he had to be yelled at to stop because his negative comments were getting out of hand.

In a cramped taxi Ahmen attempted to educated us on our tour of the island. While he was very knowledgeable on the dates of when a building or company was developed , that is where it ended. There were LOTS of spewing of dates with no interesting stories or facts. Most of the time he pointed to buildings and told us what they were when it was quite obvious.
Often times Ahmen contradicted himself and gave false information.
This was such a bad experience, the last half of the tour we drove in silence, afraid to speak in fear of being demeaned. He even degraded us for chewing trident gum and liking French fries! Wouldn’t recommend anyone to experience this.

My wife and I did the all day tour of Barbados with Ahmed. Ahmed makes you feel comfortable and relaxed from the beginning and tailors you’re tour too what you want to experience. We seen all the parishes on Barbados while learning the history and taking awesome pictures ( Ahmed also took excellent pictures of me and the wife). We were able to visit sites like the Harrison caves and wildlife preserve (Ahmed made sure we were there in time to see the monkeys before they disappeared) as well as other historical sites and beautiful views. I would recommend this tour for those who like the personal touch.

We took the Barbados Coastal Sightseeing Private Tour with our wonderful tour guide, Ahmed Proverbs. We saw the Parliament Building, Independence Square, the Cricket Stadium and St. James Parish Church. We went through the oldest town in Barbados, Holetown, We saw St James Church, the Speightstown mural, a scenic view from the Animal Flower Cave, Cherry Tree Hill, Bathsheba, and Coddington College, and other scenic stops while traveling through Barbados. It was a very comfortable tour in a private taxi van, and Ahmed gave us a complete history of the island. If you are looking for a private tour for your group, this is it! Will ask for Ahmed when we return to Barbados.

Great experience. From booking to collection at the Hotel easy to arrange. Our guide Ahmed showed us around some of the most beautiful spots on the island. Tailoring the tour to meet our interests. The air con was much appreciated. As was the detailed history and guide to what we were seeing.
Advise to do early in your stay so you can revisit places at leisure.
Thank you Ahmed.

A full island tour at breakneck pace that somehow felt leisurely. Of course, any tour is made or broken by the guide and pleased to say Ahmed is a lovely guy; kind, considerate and immensely knowledgeable. Also knows a bit about cricket…..
