The tour of the Four Square Rum distillery was interesting and enjoyable. Especially the rum tasting lesson at the end. My wife and I learned a lot about rum! The Clifton Plantation House was really neat to see. A very beautiful house located in a beautiful and quiet part of the island. We were lucky as, except for one other person, we were the only ones on the tour so we had the van to ourselves and had the full attention of Scott, our tour guide. Scott was great as he kept up a regular commentary on the sights as we drove from one place to the other. He is a native Barbadian and has a wealth of knowledge of the island, its history, and culture. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour.

Visited 2 separate distilleries. Tasting sessions in both. You get about 10 small shots of rum in total!! Extremely interesting and great value for money.

Foursquares Distillery tour was excellent Unfortunately the second tour at Mount Gay Visitor Centre did not go ahead as Mount Gay turned our tour guide bus away at gate stating “No tours today”. Our tour company - Williams - advised us later that Mount Gay had arranged a private tour and had neglected to tell them! Very poor of Mount Gay visitor centre. Williams did the right thing and gave us an acceptable refund for that cancelled element of our tour.
