I was eager to visit, but my wife less sure. We both had a fantastic time. The exhibits were really interesting and the tastings were a lot of fun.

Return visit to this centre and rum tour. Very much improved and an excellent guide for the tour and tasting. Fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended, would certainly do this again given the chance.

This short tour was a great way to sample and learn about the history of the world's oldest rum. Our guide was funny and informative and the rum tasted great! I'm definitely going to experience more and mix rum with various beverages.

Yes as the shop is where we paid for the tour. Don't forget you can only shop tax free there if purchases go straight to the airport
