VERY fun tour, even (maybe especially) if you don’t drink. We don’t but the rum tasting was like going to a show, and it’s even better if you like history. Doreen was a blast and she made the whole thing fun for everyone.

Our tour guide, Tasheba Harris was knowledgeable and very gracious. Chef Cheviour Harris prepared, demonstrated and served a wonderful Caribbean meal topped off by the best ever coconut butter bread pudding! A wonderful day at a beautiful estate!

You can just show up and pay a fee to go and see the house and gardens. The girl from Kantours told us it was $10 US but when we actually paid the girl at the entrance, it was 10EC.
