during sugar harvest season (Jul-Dec), guided tour of sugar refinery and distillery (2hrs): daily except Sun 9.15am-6.30pm, Sat 9am-5pm (booking required) - outside sugar harvest season (Jan-Jun), guided tour of distillery only (1hr30): daily except Sun and Bank Hols 10am-4pm
Two tours are offered at this industrial site that is still in operation: a fascinating tour of Bois-Rouge Sugar Refinery, explaining the process of how sugar is made and the hive of activity that surrounds it (only during the sugar season from June to December); and an instructive tour at Savanna Distillery, where sugarcane is turned into different kinds of rum (year round, but avoid school holiday times). Tours are rounded off with a tasting session.
