“TERRIBLE. Not a city tour but a gift shop tour”
We booked this one through CNT (Carribean Nexus Tours) and our Sunwing rep... other tours may vary.
We were told we were going to a rum factory, amber museum, city tour and the cable car to the top of the mountain (telefrico), and that we would be back at the hotel between 1-2 pm.
The rum factory was neat, but it was only the place where they bottle the rum... they process the sugar cane on the other side of the island. This tour ended in the gift shop.
Next stop was an amber factory where we didn't see any amber being processed, just the gift shop and the promise that this was the best place.
Next stop was city center which was alright, except we were sent on our own for 20 minutes... no guides. There's a church there. Then, we went to ANOTHER amber place with ANOTHER gift shop! Then we went to the Fort which was alright.
Just to be clear, there was hardly any tour or history of the city.
The cable car was cool, but we didn't get to the top of the mountain until 2pm, which was when we were supposed to be back. We were stuck up there with yet another gift shop for 30 mins and finally got back at 3:30. They didn't feed us on this trip either.
My suggestion- do the cable car on your own... get a taxi to take you.
