Rum Tasting in Tortola

Meet your guide and group at the ferry dock, climb in to a comfortable vehicle and drive along Ridge Road. Enjoy panoramic views of the northern side of Tortola, which is just 14 miles (23 km) long in total. Stop for photo ops of the sparkling blue Caribbean at a scenic lookout before proceeding with your rum tasting.

Arrive at Callwood Rum Distillery, one of only 2 rum distilleries in the BVI, for your rum tasting. Have a look around the historic brick and stone architecture, then relax and sip a variety of rums made there.

Continue to Smuggler's Cove Beach, the launch point for your snorkeling excursion. Slip on your snorkeling gear and wade right off the beach into the azure waters. Immerse yourself in the underwater world, bustling with vibrant coral and schools of brightly colored fish. When you've had your fill, climb back up on the white sand beach for some relaxation.

Sam was a FANTASTIC guide. He completely catered to our group (including a baby) and let us decide what we wanted to do. He is passionate about his island and his people and it shows in every way. Thanks Sam for a wonderful time!

We arrived on the Carnival Breeze at Tortola and exited the ship. Our tour was for 10:00 AM, our tour guide was no where to be found, in fact that tour company is not allowed to come inside "the gate". Our family of 5 walk outside the gate, get chatin with a local taxi/tour guide. He knows about this tour we were looking for and phones Mr. No Show personally, Thanks Mr. Taxi Driver, much appreciated. Meanwhile our tour guide is off on another tour so he phones his friend and eventually picks us up. Needless to say our tour guide did the best he could under the circumstances. $350 bucks down the tube.
