My wife and I have been to Barbados before and have always enjoyed the breathtaking views, the wonderful beaches and the beautiful Bajan people. This most recent visit included an island tour conducted by Billy, owner of Sweet Life Island Tours and it was awesome. Billy not only took us to the best vantage points to observe these stunning views, but most importantly, gave us the history of these places. Now we understand what Chattel houses are, why there are no snakes on the Island and many other interesting facts. A visit to Barbados is incomplete without a Sweet Life Island Tour.

Our Island Tour was wonderful. Billy was timely and the experiences helped us understand and appreciate Barbados even more. We weren't there to shop, but good to know on Sunday stores are closed. Loved lunch and the bakery. Excellent choices! Highly recommended.

We have had a wonderful experience. The tour guide Billy is very funny, friendly and knowledgeable. I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a tour of the island.
I can't recommend Sweet Life Tours enough. Unfortunately, we were only in Barbados for a day, but we were able to see way more than we could have asked for on this tour (you quite literally get to see the entire island). Billy is awesome; he could do a tour of a parking lot and I'd book it knowing it'd be a great time. He genuinely knows what he's talking about, cares about the island, and takes care of you every step of the way.
