About
Are you yearning for an authentic historic tour of Barbados? Look no further!! Let me show you the Historic Garrison as I share my most treasured and intimate memories of my visits to this area with my father. He often took me back to 18th century Barbados, to a time when the life and times of British military occupation in Barbados was at its height. The shores and forts of Barbados also have interesting stories that I will I share. I'd love to take you for a journey through history as we travel the quaint towns and absorb in the beauty of ancient buildings alongside modern architecture. This guided tour with audio headset is engaging as we tell you about the barracks, the hospital, the forts, the cannon collection, the prison and even the court martial site before viewing the house where George Washington stayed!  A little snack helps pass the time as you are transported to the Barbadian military Garrison of 1705.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
