I chose this excursion because the online description said we would go to Earthworks Pottery and On The Wall Gallery; we went to neither. At Sunbury Plantation House, we were supposed to have a guided tour. There was one but it was not exclusive to our group, included over 50 people, and could not be heard. There was to be a four-course buffet lunch. It was not four-course; the food was not explained; it was mediocre and cold. There were other groups eating at the same time and they ran out of some food items on the buffet before I got there. Read Less

Tour took us to a church and then to the plantation. Both were historically interesting. Behind the plantation was an included rum tasting. The ladies hosting were hilarious and the drinks they poured were 95% rum. They also provided a small tasting of local cod and jerk chicken. This was the most fun I've had in years. Read Less

We booked the best of Barbados tour, which included Sunbury house. The house itself it pleasant and interesting, and the visit included food and rum tasting. I am normally allergic to these things - but I and the group enjoyed it enormously. The humor came over as absolutely genuine, and the food and rum was generous (sit on the front row!) The port itself is well run, with shuttle buses, plenty of shopping, and free wi-fi in the outside area as you leave the port. Read Less

When we arrived at the Plantation, I was not sure what to expect. I did see that we would be taught how to make Rum Punch and fish cakes. When I met up with the operators of the plantation I mentioned that I had an allergy to pineapple, which is almost always in a punch recipe. The three mixologists came right over and told me they were switching things right up and they used lime juice instead! I was able to enjoy the different rum drinks along with everyone else!I have always loved Barbados. The people here are warm, kind and make you feel right at home. Add to that it's beauty, and it makes Barbados a must see! Read Less
