What To Expect

Mount Gay Visitor Centre
The Mount Gay rum tour at the Visitor Centre is truly a Barbadian Experience! Rum is more than a social lubricant here on the island of Barbados. It's the history , culture, and essence of the island poured over ice. Barbados is considered the birthplace of rum, and Mount Gay Distillery founded in 1703 is believed to be the oldest rumfound anywhere in the world for three centuries ofsailors andpirates.

The tour was very informative, I learned a lot about mount gay rum history, and the tasting was great.
Great experience

Daria gave an amazing presentation. Her amicable nature and friendly disposition was very welcoming and inclusive. I loved all her ‘research’ and her helpful shopping suggestions. Highly recommended! I honestly thought 4 rums wouldn’t be enough - but they were!
Excellent Company

What can I say? We did a few trips with A Plus Tours and they were superb ! Very friendly and very knowledgeable about the wonderful Island of Barbados. Pick up was always on time and the tours themselves were fantastic. When we return we will only use A Plus Tours. Thank you Kate !
Great tour, presenters, terrace for drinks. A must do tour.

Snuck myself away from the cricket and glad I did.
Greater with a rum cocktail and sat next to some cooling fans. The rooms were air conditioned which was much needed. Not sure why there is a shoe policy because I toured in flip flops.

Sampled 4 rums and got some great insights in to mount gay and rum making. Presenter was excellent.
I followed with lunch in the terrace overlooking the cocktail making session which looked fun It was delicious, 2 course and a rum drink was 51 Barbadian dollars

Only downer would be if a party joins that are from the cruise liners. A group crashed in and were not subtle with their picture taking and talked loudly in the background. I think if you go early then you maybe avoid
Spur of the moment tour was great!

We stopped here on a tour around the island. Got to sample four rums and got great tips on what to mix them with besides Coke! Try Apple juice! Amel(?) our tour guide was fun and informative. Make sure to stop in.
