This tour was a highlight of my trip. Claudette is an incredibly knowledgeable and kind guide who told the history of Bridgetown (and Barbados) through the stories of its people. Her passion, responsiveness to our questions, and flexibility made our time together fly by and I learned a lot. At the end of the tour she went out to her way to not only recommend but call a restaurant for one family who wanted to have lunch and found a taxi driver for me so that I could easily get back to my hotel. I subsequently recommended this tour to other travelers who I met in Barbados.

Excellent tour, Claudette was brilliant and knowledgeable and really made the history come to life. Hopefully more people will get off their sunbeds and discover the area, there is so much more to the Caribbean than the beach!

As a walking tour guide in Liverpool I really enjoy other guides' tours. We went on a walking tour in Bridgetown with Claudette. Claudette gave us an excellent tour. She presented historical facts in a clear, concise way without us being worn down to boredom. Claudette has a great sense of humour and her obvious pride in Bridgetown and Barbados was apparent in her enthusiasm. As a walking tour guide I do not hesitate to recommend Claudette's tour.

Claudette, our lovely guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and so so generous and gracious. It felt like being shown around town by an old friend. Tim’s restaurant was a great recommendation for lunch. We would highly recommend this tour.

Historian & Tour Guide
Barbados is world-renowned as an island experience with a rich history. Beyond that are lesser told stories about the people who were instrumental in shaping and developing this nation. I delight in sharing the journey and experiences of our ancestors, that made us a rich and diverse nation.
My mission as a trained Historian, is to introduce the history, heritage, and resulting culture of Barbados to the world, one tour at a time. I am especially keen on exposing Barbadians to their unknown heritage. It is important to resonate with the past, and in doing so, to understand our purpose in the present. Wisdom dictates, that if you know where you came from, you will know as a collective who you are and where you are going.
Experience Our Culture & History
As we look back through the windows of history, our walking tour will create a view into a time long past. We will stroll through the capital city of Bridgetown, a once hustling, bustling, lived-in port city. Through storytelling you will meet the people who came, founded, settled, and developed this diverse social and commercial space.
Hear their stories and experiences through the sharing of the cultural accounts of lives lived in this British colonial seat of power. Explore the centuries old streetscape and visualize the scenes of old Bridgetown, through the remaining buildings, sites and other artifacts left behind as a testament to our past. Also, experience the town today, a relic of a long colonial past where the old and new coexist.
