Vincent is amazing!

My husband and I booked a rum distillery tour while honeymooning in St. Lucia. We expected to be picked up in a van with other couples; however, we had a private air conditioned vehicle with the absolutely purest form of a tour guide - Vincent. Vincent not only took us to our tour but took us around the city of Casteries to see notable sites such as beautiful look outs, the Governor's home, and he stopped to buy us fresh coconuts to drink the coconut milk. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Vincent. If you decide to do this tour, make sure to request to have Vincent drive you and prepare to bring a fair amount of cash to tip him, because you will want to!

Great tour with accomodations on transportation
Colin_B

Viator helped with communication with the excursion management in order to set up special transportation from the southern part of the island to this northern excursion. The tour was informative in the history of rum on the island and how rum is made. We did not get to walk through sugar cane or sugar beet fields, but got to tour inside of distillery. The rum tasting was great, and we got to taste every single thing the disterally makes. After your and tasting we got to purchase full bottles of spirits at the cheapest price on the island. Highly recommend for those who like rum.
