I did the 3 hour culinary/historical walking tour of Philipsburg with Adriana and had a great time. Ate at two different local restaurants and finished the tour with the most excellent gelato ever! Enjoyed the chance to eat where the locals eat. Adriana is a joy. I then decided to take Dave's 90 minute tour of Toppers Rhum Distillery. The... More

Dave at Happy Hour coordinated an ATV tour of the island for us, and it was amazing. He also lead the Topper's Rhum tour and was very informative. The rhum samples were great - and some of the test flavors were amazing. We are looking forward to cracking open the 5 bottles of rhum we brought home - the best... More

So. We do a lot of distillery and factory type tours when we travel. That said, Toppers was a little of both. Mainly about the bottling process and other fun facts. However this is NOT a distillery. This is a place that buys raw alcohol and does infusions. I learned from locals later that the alcohol is shipped in and... More

We chose a 6 hour culinary tour which included a tour of Topper's Rhum Factory. Adriana picked us up at our resort. This was a great feature because it was our 1st time staying in St. Martin and we had not rented a car. We visited several stops that included a few popular scenic stops on both the Dutch and...

Really enjoyed learning how Topper's Rhum is made and bottled. Dave gave a fun, interesting overview of making Rhum in St Martin. For us St Martin was a one day stop on a cruise and I booked this based on Trip Adviser reviews. So glad I did as we got away from all the hoards of people that take side... More

Dave did a great job hosting a fun and educational tour of Topper's Rhum factory. Sampled Melanie's fun experimental flavors and became loyal fans of the brand. Tony made the tour fun showing his expertise. We got lucky and asked about the tour while at Topper's restaurant and Topper hooked us up with Dave. So glad we went!

Spent a couple of delightful hours at the Toppers rheum distillery learning all about the processes involved in the production of the rhum. There was opportunity to taste many different flavours that are still in their early stages and also the popular bottled flavours as well. Well worth doing!
