Very well organized tour led by our entertaining guide RUMal ! Museum room and short documentary film very interesting. Best was rum tastings in gorgeous showcase room followed by delicious complete Bajan lunch and bottomless rum punch on outdoor terrace.
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the lunch was amazing. We tasted three out of five types of rum presented. It would have been great to taste all five however they were sold out of the 1703 rum.
Very entertaining with our guide. The lunch was delicious with flying fish etc. One thing is that they did not let us try the best rum, the 300. Even if they gave us a teaspoon, I would have appreciated it! Cheapskates! They told us we could BUY for $10 a taste! Other than that, awesome!
If you are travelling to Bridgetown Barbados, this is a MUST tour to take, but be forewarned, you will be sampling some very good rum so you have to pace yourself. The tour itself is quite short and our tour guide Rumal was great...funny and very interesting, and he moved us right along. You can imbibe or not, it's up to you, but the process of rum making is very interesting and you will visit a small factory making today's Mount Gay Rums. After this, you will enjoy an all you can eat buffet lunch and to wash it down, yes you guessed in Rum Punch, so by the time the tour is over, you've learned something and have a nice buzz to go with it. This is really worth the money and you will meet some very interesting people.....
