Booked the tour one month in advance and we're glad we did as there were many walk up cruise passengers. The tour lasted about an hour and was expertly presented by our guide. We learned a lot about this historic and culturally important Barbados institution. Be careful when engaging in the multiple tasting opportunities, the rum will catch up with... More

Short taxi ride from cruise port. Paid $15 for 5 samples of rum and they were very generous samples. Tour guide "Tina" was great, very funny and upbeat. Total tour with flight samples takes about an hour. They also have a great bar where you can pay for more drinks-very creative ones made by the bartenders using the different types... More

We took the basic tour. Since we have been on other wine/rum/beer tours, we weren't going to, but glad we did learned things about different qualities and the guide was entertaining. Bought a bottle at the end of the tour which we later learned was less expensive than buying it at the supermarket!

What a waste of time, its all about trying to sell you a load of tat in the shop. nothing to see, I wanted to see sugar cane being processed, water added wooden barrels aging in store etc. But I saw film, a bottle plant not working, and not much else, oh I got five teaspoons of rum. total rip...

We had tasted Mount Gay Rum before we came to Barbados so had to go visit the distillery were it is made, had a great tour of the place with a wonderful guild, who explained everything so well, and finished with a tasting at the end which was great as you get to taste the many different styles of Rum....

This was far the most entertaining rum tour we went on. The tour guide Rumall (I think that was his name) was a great spokesperson and presenter. He made the tour lively and fun. Great history of the company and oh yeah, you will walk out of the tour a bit tipsy :) if you sample all the rums. I... More

How could anybody visiting Barbados not see the home of the world's oldest rum factory, and the world's best rum? Good length tour, informative, entertaining. Try get here earlier than later in the day. Pick your day where there fewer cruise ships in port. And pick up a bottle of the Master Selection on your way out. It's cheaper than... More
