  • Our tour guide Virginia was great! Very nice, knowledgable and pleasant. Enjoyed our visit.
  • Everyone was very welcoming and the tour was educational. Simon has a lot of one liners and added some fun to the end of the tour. Pleasant historical excursion to see a bit of the past.
  • Beautiful location. Simon was very welcoming and their rum is fantastic! We ended up buying a bottle of the 12 year to bring home, and it is probably the best rum I have ever had.
  • The train ride is lots of fun for kids of all ages; the whole place is really well done, you can appreciate quality in every detail, view from the top of the run is stunning and staff is very friendly and nice.
  • At least allow yourself an hour for the tour. Place is well organized. Highly recommended
