Quite good to find out how sugar cane is produced, but be aware this wont be the case until somewhen in June to December when the factory and machinery are processing the cane.Rum tasting good but fairly pricey for what you get.

You pay for the tour and get to try nine types of agricultural rum. Never even knew there was such a thing. Sort of like visiting a high-end winery, lots to find out about.

If you come for lunch the rum tastings/mini tour is included. We enjoyed our lunch at their onsite restaurant called L'Alchimiste (I did a separate review for it). For tour/rum tasting only it costs 370 MRPS each. The restaurant is not cheap, but the food...More

Prices vary dramatically from 20 to 300 Euros. In my opinion, the rum is not very good compared to the Caribbean and Central America. If you really need a bottle, the Lazy Dodo is quite cheap and makes an okay souvenir. I... More
