Home | visiting us | Taxis & Tours

Taxis and tour guides are a very good way to find out all about the island, and a useful way to organise a fishing trip or a visit to the caves – the people listed here are the real experts on Barbuda because they live on Barbuda. If you arrive at the airport or the ferry wharf there may be a taxi already there picking up others –  just look for a tx number plate – but it’s much better to call ahead (there are no taxi ranks at either the airport or the ferry wharf) and book the taxi or find out about the availability of a tour before you get to Barbuda. Barbuda is expensive compared to some other islands but we pay these prices too, so make your stay memorable and try to see all you can. Sometimes it can be difficult to get through to people because our phone signal is not good – keep trying!

If you hire a car it can be delivered to you at the ferry or the airport on your arrival, and you can also ask the local guides who don’t have transport to come with you on trips to visit the caves or other places of interest. Local knowledge is important if you want to see some of the off-the-beaten-track parts of Barbuda.

Some of the hotels in Antigua do day tours to Barbuda and the Barbuda Express Ferry also offers this service through Hillside Tours (listed below) if you wish to see the most popular parts of Barbuda and only have one day to do it. But we say book a few nights accommodation here – you will be glad you did.
