Very good tour. Bob, our tour guide/educator, picked up our group at the french market and brought us to the distillery. He has a welcome cocktail for you and loads of knowledge about the business of distilling rum. Worth the trip.

The bus driver/tour guide/game show host, was a total hoot. The lady at the check in was so friendly as well. Very interesting learning experience. Awesome tasting rum. The people on the tour with us helped make it awesome too. Highly recommend this!

This was an awesome tour and the rum is out of this world! Bob was a fantastic shuttle driver, historian, tour guide, and bartender! The time and science that goes into their rum making process is incredible and definitely worth learning about. You walk away...More

I’m sorry I have no idea if minors can attend the tour. If they could attend, I think they would be bored. For the adults, several tastings of the different rums are provided. Not for kids in my opinion.

They only offer the tour at specific times, so in order to get the exact time we wanted, we booked online in advance. Also, if you are planning on using their shuttle, you definitely need to book in advance. Enjoy!
