We had never been to Antigua before and wanted to see the island. We arranged our tour online a couple of months before our cruise. It was up to us where we went and what we saw. I did a lot of research beforehand. We met our driver at a specified location. He took us everywhere we wanted to go: Shirley's Heights, the Dockyard. He even showed us Eric Clapton's house (my husband is a big fan). We finally went to Darkwood Beach for a couple of hours of beach time. It was a wonderful day! I would highly recommend Barry's Taxi and Tour.

My daughter was traveling alone to Antigua to start a sailing voyage,we booked Barry for the transfer from the airport to her accommodation.
He was so kind and helpful,he replied to emails very quickly and was very reassuring,he even emailed me to let me know she had arrived safely.He is a lovely kind man and I would recommend him.

We booked Barry for our transfers and also a day tour. We highly recommend him. We had a great full day tour and Barry really knows the island and shows you all the tourist areas and also lots of other snippets and info as you drive along.
We added the donkey sanctuary to our day tour and he was flexible and happy to incorporate that into our day. It was cheaper to use Barry and have a personal tour that got on the hotel one with others.
Barry's communication is excellent and he contacted us several times to confirm bookings etc. When he couldn't take us out one day we had a friend of Barry's ,Sam who was equally good.

We booked Barry after reading all the excellent reviews and we are more than happy to agree -- Barry is EXCELLENT! Barry is a wealth of knowledge and information about his home island of Antigua. You could clearly tell that Barry not only took pride in the island of Antigua, he takes pride in his family, his appearance and also in the appearance of his vehicle. Barry is friendly, outgoing and professional in every respect and we would not only highly recommend his company and in particular his personal services but will be asking him to once again transfer us to and from the resort on our next trip to Antigua. Barry thank you for the excellent and amazing "white glove" service!!!!!!!

When I contacted Barry he was already booked for the date we wanted, but he recommended another person, Kerwin, whom I booked through Barry. We were met at the cruise port at the appointed place and time. We were a private group of 4, and very comfortable in the newer air-conditioned van that was provided. Kerwin had taken a 6-month training course to qualify as a licensed tour guide, and was very knowledgeable about the island. As this was a private tour, we were able to customiize where and when we stopped for sightseeing, shopping, dining, etc. During the tour, Barry called and spoke to us on Kerwin’s cell phone to ensure that we were happy with the service. We paid $140 US for 4 hours - $35 pp for each of us - with no additional charge when we exceeded the time by more than 30 minutes. All in all, a first-class and inexpensive way to see the island, especially when we were only there for a day on our cruise. Antigua is beautiful - we will definitely want to go back.
