Constant Disruptions
JRC
, Mar 2020
The tour guide/Staff and the information on the tour was excellent. I am giving it 2 stars due to the fact that there was an abundance of loud young children on the tour. At every minute of the tour there was a disruption, even to the point we were standing as close as we could to the tour guide and still had problems hearing him, as children were running back and forth as well as one parent who continually kept dropping their stroller (no child in it thankfully). I am a father myself of 2 young children, and the parental lack on control was completely unacceptable. In my opinion this is an adult tour (18+), not a family event with young children. I would suggest having a separate family only tours. This was something I was really looking forward to on our vacation, and turned out to be a bust.

Basic tour; not a must go
Rosy_K

Pretty basic, more of a verbal tour with four shots of rum with an introductory rum punch to kick off the tour. Information was pretty basic. Because this isn't the actual distillery there isn't much to see. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit: but if you need somewhere to explore for two hours it's not too bad.

This is a great tour. Our guide Ramal (sorry if that isn’t spelled correctly) was informative and very entertaining, which made it so much fun. The cost of the tour was only $20BD, so very reasonable. We also enjoyed all the rum tasting. Well done!

Great excursion, I would highly recommend it. You’ll find out a bit of history; recommendations of what to mix with the rum; and the tasting experience.

Lots of rum tasting

Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Kept everyone entertained and good information about the distillery. Please note, this is not a factory / distillery tour, but a rum tasting with a history lesson. Rum served is at room temperature, I would have preferred it chilled or over ice. Definitely a must do when in Barbados.

Expected more than a film and lecture about the rum and making. Was hoping to see the factory or bottling plant, something more. Waited a long time for the tour not every half hour and a long time for our drink, which we were told was free but was only 5 off on certain drinks. Juice for kids was charged 4 each! Lots of other stuff to do in Barbados, I would skip this tour.
