Awesome Tour!

Mikey, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered questions. The group ended up being just my daughter and I and yet he didn't seem to mind at all. He kept us moving and made sure we enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.

Do you mean Watlings instead of Watkins? If so,upon beginning the tour,they will usually pass out a tiny sample of pina colada slush.Actual drinks are available for purchase at the end of the tour in their bar.
