We had a lovely afternoon touring the Fairview Great House and tasting rum with our tour guide Ms. Doreen. She was fun and informative! The grounds are beautiful, an amazing view, and the rum is so tasty. Would recommend!

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.
