Includes (for US $25) a tour of the Rum factory. The guided tour was well narrated, and interesting - 45 minutes. Ended with a sourvenier rum sample, and a tasting session of the different rums. Ask for kid's discount (!) on that steep admission fees - it helps.

Our Appleton Estate Tour guide was fabulous, we learned the history,the process and so much more! As soon as you arrive they offer you a Rum drink, have the Rum... More

I really enjoyed this tour. More so than the Bacardi Factory in PR. It was cool getting to see the whole process, from seeing how it used to be done, tasting the molasses, to seeing the warehouse with the aging rum, to the rum sampling. Very hospitable staff. I would recommend this tour to anyone going.

We did this tour which included Appleton Rum Tour, YS Warerfalls, and the Black River boat tour. Great day, long, but well worth it. All beautiful and Rum sampling, Mmm Mmm. The Black River Tour was brill, and we saw an osprey and crocodiles, very informative guide.

This is a great little tour! Lots of interesting history (including a donkey who presses the sugar cane;) The complimentary rum punch was some of the best I ever had! Price of the tour---and prices in the gift shops---were very reasonable. Nice way to spend a rainy day,
