YOUR BARBADOS CARNIVAL HOSTS

In addition to our team of Ambassadors who will travel with you, we’ll be your main hosts during Barbados Carnival.

Esha and Tarik Davis

Co-Founders, Events by Ashé LLC

We met during Trinidad Carnival in 2006 while playing mas.  Yes, we were both in costume; this photo was taken when we actually met!  

Once we started dating, we talked about our first Trinidad Carnivals.  That’s when we realized that there were others out there like us who wanted to experience this amazing festival, but were unsure how to get party tickets, a costume or even secure a safe place to stay in a foreign country.

That’s when our 1st Experience, Ultimate Trinidad Carnival was born.  Ultimate Crop Over and Eat, Dance, Travel: Jamaica soon followed!

Our purpose is to inspire confidence and remove all of your worries by taking care of everything.  This gives you the freedom to let go and have fun in a drama-free environment.

With us, there’s no planning or coordination required from your end.  All you have to do is buy your flight, pack and show up at the airport!  We’ll handle the rest.

We are real people and our business has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, so you can trust that we’re a credible business.  As the ONLY fully hosted Barbados Crop Over package provider, our top priority is your safety. 

Also about us: we love to have a good time and love to party but we also like to “lime” on de beach!

What our clients say about working with us

“I loved how everything was done for me and I didn’t have to stress out about things!  I also loved the music, dancing and meeting new people.

“My Ultimate Crop Over Experience was absolutely wonderful! Esha and Grace were always making sure that the group was enjoying this memorable, life-changing journey. All anyone has to do is buy their plane ticket, pick their costume, pack their suitcase and get ready to have the Ultimate Barbados Crop Over Experience.”

Tracy

“Limerz Cruise followed by the beach party was my favourite memory of entire trip.  I liked the pace of the activities on this trip because it allowed for adequate rest time in between. I love my sleep!!!”

    What our clients say about working with us

    I loved the road march (Kadooment Parade). The whole experience of getting my Carnival makeup done, wearing an outfit I would never wear…oh my gosh, I just marched 7 miles in the sun dancing…the whole experience was fun!”

    Adjwoa

    Texas, USA

    “I have been to the Carnivals in South America. It was fun, yet I was simply a spectator. After I spoke with Esha I realized that with Ultimate Crop Over you are a participant in all the festivities. After things got rolling I just kept thinking, “Who thought of this?” It was five days of Caribbean madness. Yet Esha and Grace were the warmest and most gracious hostesses. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. As an aside, the South American parties are a little dangerous. I always felt completely safe in Barbados.”

    Chris

    California, USA

    “[My favorite memory was] Dancing in the rain (or water) again and again and again! On de boat, at the Limerz after party, at J’ouvert, on de road with Aura. The rain/water energized everyone and it was a nice break from the heat! I also loved how everyone on de road went CRAZY when Skinny performed Famalay. It was pure mayhem!”
