    Mount Gay Visitor Centre
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    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.

A + rum = fun
We booked a last minute trip to do the Mount Gay Rum Tour at midday the day before and sure enough on time the very next day at just after 10:00 they arrived. Kate and the team at A Plus Tours and Events were brilliant and knowledgable.

A Rum Education At The Mount Gay Visitor Center…..
Barbados is not completely open yet. Tourism is down and It turned out we were the only two on the tour. We did this tour back in 2007 at their distillery. Today’s “private” tour was conducted at the Mount Gay Visitor Center, located outside Bridgetown. Our driver, Kate, was very friendly and pointed out some points of interest along the route to and from the resort/distillery. Once we were cleared to enter the Center, Rummel, our Mount Gay guide took us into a small museum and explained a bit of the history behind Mount Gay rums. After viewing a short video, Rummel took us into the tasting room. There we were given a real education on the 5 different rums made by Mount Gay. We only tasted 4 of the rums and we thought each one was better than the last. We were very impressed with Mount Gay’s XO. Never realized rum could be served with some many different mixers or even straight up as is the case with the XO. Had to leave with a bottle of XO. It was an enjoyable experience and if you want to learn about rum, you should give this tour a consideration.

Hate to give a single star, but they failed to contact me about the tour despite booking several days in advance and me messaging about pick-up times etc. Had to claim a full refund from Viator.

Nov 2019 • Friends
Have to rate a zero as due to a power cut on the island no tour took place, we were not informed of this until we reached the mount gay facility and were promptly turned away with very little explanation, our taxi driver had to ask questions on our behalf to try and get some answers but to no avail. Doubt we’ll get a refund, also get a generator

Disappointment
Jul 2019 • Couples
Do not use this tour, we spoke to mount gay distillery office to get a price and we were quoted 250 bds $ per person! We were also told if we booked through trip advisor we would have to pay extra on arrival as they are not happy with the trip advisor. After shopping around we booked online through trip advisor who offered the best deal which included rum distillery and rum shop. We didn’t need transport however it was included with A+ tours Barbados. We decided as we hadn’t heard anything from the tour company for a week and the tour was starting today we rang them to find out where to meet them at the tour. They had said I will call you back as we have cancelled the booking at 8.20am-which was 1 hour before the tour. They still haven’t called back. Extremely disappointed as my mum is Bajan, have been coming here for 27years and have always wanted to do a rum tour. I was never given another date to reschedule or a reason why it was cancelled. There is clearly a problem between Trip advisor, A plus tours Barbados and mount gay rum tours so I would advise you not to use either.

Nice Tour
May 2019 • Couples
This is a pick up from your hotel and drop off to the Mount Gay Rum distillery service.

You are then picked up at the end of the tour and taken to a local rum shack to taste some local rum and atmosphere of a local drinking joint !

You are encouraged to have a great rum cocktail at the bar before the tour starts and the rum tour itself lasts about 90 mins and is a must and for a rum lover like me was very interesting and you get to taste 4 double shots of the main types of mount gay rum they sell. The souvenir shop is good as well and we managed to buy some t shirts and also 2 bottles which they don't sell or make outside the distillery shop.

Kate on the way back then very kindly stopped by the cricket ground so we could take some quick photos and outside the scope of this tour on a personal front she also helped to take us out in the evening where we tasted some nice local dinner and also drove past the prestigious sandy lane and the wealthy roads/houses which was interesting and something Kate didn't have to do but was more then happy to show as around.
