  • Very nice introduction with the train during the visit of the domain. The rum tasting was great and everyone was expecting this since the beginning of the tour :) The jam tastes so good with a full flavour very aromatic. The visit overall was nice, didn't get bored.
  • The"train" tour was overpriced. It is much better to go walk around following the map and trail markers. Everyone was present and the tastings were good.
  • Rum tasting was great, tour by train was almost worthless.
  • The distillery is a very nice place. A small train ride you will be all on Board propose to allow you to know the area as well as the history of the site. A tasting of local products you will then propose. A walk in the gardens will allow you to take some time in a friendly atmosphere. I recommend!
