The drive is a little scary, with the hills and how narrow the roads are however, this tour is so worth it.
The tour guide was so knowledgeable and sweet. Any question you asked was answered and if the answer wasn't known she found out and let you know. The samples of Appleton rum are the small bottles but good. You do get to taste test many varieties. Also, the tour guide could tell you what your favorite rum would be and she was spot on! Great tour!

The experience of travelling the Jamaican counrty side from Montego Bay to Appleton estates was wonderful. The trip was 2.5 hour ride with a 2 hr tour. On the way back we stopped for some autentic jerk chicken and pork with some festival. Avian our driver was awesome, very informative and provided a very relaxing day trip for us.
