    The driver was excellent as well as the sites visited during day out. The hospiltality at each destination is rated 5 out of 5.
    Excellent day out of the tour with wxceptional people we met along our day of travels. The group really enjoyed our driver who calls himself Celery. Highly recommend doing the excurison. In the future ensure.vouchers are sent to.reduce confusion with the tour.company.

    Just don't
    Talk about frustrating! Certainly pleasant in the surface but then when things don't go well, there is very little assistance. Also, if you book your transfer roundtrip, you will be absolutely price gouged if you change hotels!!! I suggest booking through viator or Expedia or even Airbnb!!!

    Land Eh, Sea yeah
    We were supposed to see the mud baths(stunk awful there), diamond waterfall and botanical garden, and another waterfall. Got gypped on botanical garden and diamond waterfall. Melinda our tour guide was great tho. On the sea aspects the boat was nice, the crew other than an older man and a woman were super helpful and friendly, the snorkeling was AMAZING! And the guy that swam out with you was super nice and helpful. It was annoying though they let pedlers pull up to boat and annoy us. All in all a worthwhile trip

    Great half day tour
    Samuel our guide and driver picked us up on time and was very friendly and knowledgeable. Some of the views were stunning. Could have had more time in the botanical gardens which were beautiful.

    We spent the most amazing time with our guide, Sammie. He was absolutely brilliant and really provided both an education, and entertainment about the history and amazing beauty of St Lucia. This tour is a must!

    Great experience
    Chef Jules and his team were exceptional! I wish I has written down all the ladies that helped on the tour and cooking, Silvia (sp) was very informative with the history of the garden and the island. She was funny with her jokes and warm and welcoming to us the entire time she helped us with the tour and rum shot at the end. Chef Jules organized a great fulfilling menu for appetizers, entree and dessert. My family and I hope to go there again the next time we visit Saint Lucia.

    Trip worth doing
    Great trip with a very knowledgeable guide called George. There were only 6 people on the tour which made it a bit more personal. Drive through the islands banana plantations & rainforest to reach our destinations. We got to tour the volcano springs with an interesting commentary from a local expert. My only reason for not giving a 5 star review was that I would've liked longer to visit the botanical gardens.

    Not worth the price
    Not worth it! You are basically only paying for transportation and a guide to walk with you. We never saw the hideouts, tunnels and caves that were in the description. Our guide didn’t provide any information about the birds, plants, or history.

    Excellent, beautiful and varied experience
    Best excursion we did on our 10 day cruise. The organization if very professional and knows the value of customer service and friendliness. The staff was very attentive and efficient. The lunch was very good with generous portions of BBQ chicken, rice/beans and salad. Drinks were flowing freely and easily. The route we took was breathtaking. The mud baths were a lot of fun and included optional dark mud body painting. You could of course do that yourself if you don't want anyones hands on you. The waterfall was beautiful but it was pretty crowded and lent itself as a result to a short stay. Then we continued our journey to a snorkeling location and there were plenty of fish to see with good variety. Overall, this was an awesome trip and I'd plan future trips with this company in a heartbeat.

    An observer's insight to St Lucian cooking
    This is a nice insight into cooking on St Lucia, but if you're used to a hands on cooking experience then this may be too light touch for you. The team are all very friendly, professional and the small group made for a pleasant three hours, where we mostly observed the cooking of starters, main course and a very quick dessert. If you're hoping to do more than combine a few ingredients, and only half the class got to do that, then this course is probably not going to be the one for you. However, lovely people, lovely food and a nice insight.

    Fun day out
    We were picked up and taken down to harbour in Castries. A fun day out Pitons are magnificent as is the rest of the coastline called at Soufriere for Mud baths and waterfall, Maginot bay and swimming, snorkeling on way back. Lunch provided and Rum Punch of course. Thoroughly enjoyed day out, well organised commentary provided on way out, Be Warned take an old swimming costume as it will get stained and stink after med baths.

    Great day in the rainforest
    I didn’t know what expect, it was very high and I’m scared of heights! But wow, I’m so pleased I did it, the two lads who took us around were very professional and put me at ease, I felt very safe and the rainforest was beautiful.

Loved the rum tasting experience, jungle George our driver and guide was amazing and made the whole experience.
However, this tour should include a trip to Castries market but that wasn't communicated to him. He very kindly detoured for us to give us half an hour there, but we obviously had to tip him very well considering he wasn't employed to do that.
As such the trip cost us a lot more than it should for the experience they advertise.
Do not expect this tour to stop in Castries they only go straight to the rum factory and back.
I would ask that the tour company refund our tip we had to pay but who knows if they even read these.

We had a great time on our trip today with William and Sammy. The tour around the island was brilliant and they took us places we would never go. There knowledge was so interesting and they definitely made the trip fun. The Rum tour was good and we purchased rum to take home with us which is a lot cheaper than buying at the hotel. After we visited Castries market where we had half an hour to look round and have a beer.

I would highly recommend this trip to everyone and to book it through here. Don’t book when your at the hotel, do it through these guys. And if you want a good laugh and a great time…..ask for William and Sammy, such lovely people.

Please, please, please save your money and use it on something more enjoyable and value adding. Looking at other reviews the informative drivers provided an insight into the Island as you travelled was a big plus. Unfortunately our poor driver didn’t get the chance as we travelled with three of the most obnoxious, selfish, ill-mannered and foul mouthed women from New York. Never before have I had on trip where we have had to stop for snacks, drinks and KFC (at 11:00 am) both on the way to and from the distillery .
The distillery tour consists of a two minute talk by some fermentation vats and then a five minute talk by some distillation tanks. Then we shuffled off to watch a video for ten minutes, then tasted some rum samples from different bottles line up on bar.
We them stopped in Castries with only 45 minutes. At this point we paid for a separate taxi to give us more time in Castries and get away from our horrible co-passengers.
Our driver fully understood why we didn’t return with him and we felt sorry have to ferry those women back to wherever they came from. I am sure he behaved impeccably as he did throughout whilst we were with him.

Thank you for taking the time to share this review. We have seen the reviews from everyone that were on the van and noted that the other passenger made the trip very uncomfortable for you. We do hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in St. Lucia.

Do not expect to learn about sugar cane. The rum is made from molasses so sugar cane is not used or explained. The rum tasting is great but most of the time is spent taking a tour of the island in a van. The tour guides are great and very informed but this tour was misleading and I was disappointed.

My wife and I and friends did this tour, our driver Samuel was fantastic he was very knowledgeable and passionate about his country which made our trip even more amazing.
The tour of the distillery was good and very informative at the end of the tour you’re invited to taste up to 20 plus rums, you can taste as many as you like.
Then we visited Castries market where we had time to buy souvenirs to take back home

We had a great experience! Vincent our driver was wonderful, he was so knowledgeable so the drive to the distillery wasn’t just a drive but a tour of the island. We learnt a lot about the history of Saint Lucia as well as local culture. The rum tour was great, we got to try as much rum as we wanted and the staff was lovely. Vincent then took us to Margot Bay to take some photos and see another part of the island, before heading to Castries where he waited for us as we explored the markets.

We had an excellent time learning about St Lucia through our very entertaining tour guide, William. We enjoyed seeing the sights and hearing history as we made our way to St Lucia Rum Distillery. The rum tasting was a great experience and allowed us to choose our favorites to purchase. Thank you to Sammy for his fantastic driving skills. Kudos again to William and Sammy for among this fabulous experience. We highly recommend it.

First off, have to make a shout out to our tour guide Stormin’ Norman! He was fantastic. Funny, knowledgeable, and kind. He drove us to the rum tasting, took us around Marigot Bay where we took a ferry, shopped, ate incredibly tasty butter bread, all in a comfortable air conditioned van. 10/10 experience for myself and my husband!

The uploaded photo is where he took us so we could snap a picture of the iconic rock formation used in a few movies.

No need to worry about all the rum being gone...you will get to taste as much as you'd like. After a tour of the distillery, they have all the different rum varieties out for you to sample. I believe there were 20+ bottles to try. All of the rums we sampled were delicious. They also let you try their highest proof rum, which is good but strong. We enjoyed trying the different flavors and bought several bottles on our way out. Definitely worth the trip. Our driver, Stormy Norman, gave us a wonderful tour of the island to and from the distillery. He also introduced us to guava cheese, which I wish I could eat all day every day.
