Dover, CHRIST CHURCH, Barbados

Enjoy with me off the beaten track places, meet other locals like my wife Melva (when her schedule permits) and immerse yourself in " de Bajan culture". ** WATCH MY MOVIE, "The Bearded Fig Tree Story" ** My fascination with Barbados' natural, cultural and built heritage, led to a desire to share these Barbadian treasures.

** WATCH MY MOVIE, "The Bearded Fig Tree Story" **

My fascination with Barbados' natural, cultural and built heritage, led to a desire to share these Barbadian treasures. Experience Barbados' sights, sounds, people and more by foot and or vehicle as I interpret our culture, like our car horn language and varied forms of greeting.

It's amazing how this island was formed, and how Barbadians lived long ago, and why there are many scores of Barbadian centenarians. In fact, Barbados ranks second to Japan for the highest percentage of 100 year old persons.

I have led walking tours and hikes throughout Barbados' 11 parishes, for the young and the young at heart and you will discover that I am knowledgeable across a wide range of areas relating to our wild flora, fauna, Barbados' geology, history, heritage, culture and the interrelationships among the above, leading to the uniqueness of our Barbadian people.

I am a certified Hike Leader, having earned certification from Hike Ontario, Canada, in 2006, a World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations certified Tourist Guide and a trained and experienced Barbados Heritage Tour Guide. I have been leading tours since the turn of this century.

Customized tours are available at your request, just contact me with your preferences and I will create your Barbados dream tour.

A Recent Review of this guide

My husband and I visited Barbados to learn more about my ancestors who lived there 300 years ago. Victor put together a tour for us which included a special visit to the Arlington Museum, cemeteries, and even the building in Speightstown which was the family home! His knowledge of the history was excellent. He also took us see the scenic spots along the north which increased our appreciation for the beauty of Barbados. We plan to return and will definitely request another tour with Victor!
