Great activity! Beautiful presentation, very beautiful premises, and very good tasting! The guide is very nice, made a huge effort to give us the tour in French! Thanks again !! We loved it ! I advise you to do this activity! And especially to buy your rum from them, it is very good and much cheaper than in the souvenir shops opposite the hotels.
