This short tour packs a lot in, ticking off two of Barbados’ most popular attractions. Things kick off at Orchid World, a sprawling park set 800 feet above sea level, and spread out over six acres. It’s home to around 30,000 orchids, which share space with cascading waterfalls, shady rock gardens and a spectacular coral grotto. When you get here, you’ll follow a path that snakes its way around the greenery. When you’re done, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive to Sunbury House. This vast plantation is set in the middle of the countryside, and it dates back to 1650. You’ll be introduced to a collection of antique horse-drawn carriages, as well as old tools used in the plantation’s daily life. You’ll tuck in to a local speciality, fluffy fish cakes, at the end of the tour. And there’ll be time to learn how to make Bajan Rum Punch – a smooth, sweet concoction that’s mixed up using rum and syrup.
