|About these ratings|
Duty-free shops are a dime a dozen in the Caribbean, but surprisingly, interactive rum tours aren't. So why not really learn "where de rum come from" while staying in Barbados? The Mount Gay Rum Company of Bridgetown, Barbados offers tours of its facilities and the chance to witness how the island's first-class drink is made.
Some travelers say the tour is informative, but boring, so you should have a keen interest in rum-making (not just rum-drinking) to attend. To make the most of the experience, consider splurging for the lunch tour (which also includes transportation to and from your hotel). You can take the Mount Gay Rum Tour on weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Stop by the gift shop before you head back to the hotel and pick up a few duty-free bottles to cart home. Mount Gay Rum's official site offers further details.
