Our guide, i forget his name, but was a very great informative guide. Had real great energy and was very helpful during the mixology tour. If i could book again to make more drinks, ill do it with that guy!! Had a lot of laughs. I strongly recommend this excursion to anyone who loves rum

We loved it from start to finish. Dennis was amazing and detailed. It was cool to see the making of rum and learn the history of the family behind it. We participated in the mixology course and I was the happiest lil drunk ever. It was so fun. They even offered us a free drink and we couldn’t even take it. I highly recommend this tour especially when visiting the rum capital of the world.

We did the mixology class, and it was so fun! The tour was really cool, with a mix of informational and funny anecdotes. The drinks we made (and the welcome drink) were all incredible, and I feel like I can really make those drinks back home. I would recommend the trip!
