What to expect
Meet your guide at a predetermined spot in the Morne Coubaril Estate in Soufriere. Embark on you 1-hour tour that will take you back in history to a time when the estate was a bustling center of community and activity. Walk through a small village filled with replicas of stick huts where the residents of the island lived in the 1700s. Continue through the estate's lucsh gardens, which feature a plethora of plants, trees and vegetation native to the island. Learn about the herbs used to treat illnesses and injuries as you amble through the medicinal herb garden. End up at the Monplaisir family's estate house, the centerpiece of the property and a grand example of architecture from the time.  Watch a demonstration of how to dehusk a coconut and learn how to dry the copra in your own oven. Indulge in a taste of coconut water and jell, then continue to a viewpoint to take in dramatic vistas. Visit the cocoa and coffee house to taste a ripe cocoa bean. Watch the fermentation process, the bean drying and the cocoa dance used to polish the beans. Stop by a traditional mule-driven sugar cane mill to sip a typical island treat, fresh cane juice. Your tour ends after 1 hour on the estate.

Visitors get the opportunity to see a working mill, houses, and rum making at this estate with buildings and dwellings. Locals hull and split coconuts for samples of the coconut milk and meat.

We had a tasteless, unappetizing Caribbean lunch at the estate dining room.

Amazing tour, full of historical information, freshest coconut, best lunch ever. The guides demonstrate how cocoa was ground by foot and how Noel the donkey ground sugar. Would come again.

Great tour!
Natasha was a great tour guide. She took a lot of time to explain all of the parts of the plantation and made sure we got lots of samples of cocoa beans and coconut. I would definitely recommend coming here!

Plantation tour with Lunch
Plantation tour with Natasha was very good. She was very engaging and my husband and I learned a lot on cocoa bean processing.

Unfortunately, lunch was not good. It included bread, cabbage salad, rice, lentils, linguini, chicken legs, and fried fish (This was good). No dessert......but u cud purchase toasted coconut and chocolate (which of course they make onsite). There is definitely room for improvement here.

Noelita was a great tour guide!
We did the estate tour with Noelita. It was a nice surprise and suggested to us by our tour driver Byron. We got to taste cocoa beans, coconut, raw Coco, Basil, coconut candy, and other fun things. It was very interesting seeing how people lived on the island in the 1700s. The tour did not take very long, maybe 30 minutes, so it was a nice quick introduction to historical St. Lucia, with a great tour guide. A very pleasant experience!

Poor donkey!
We did the tour as part of the Tout Bagay trip. We found the process boring and tedious. I thought it’d be fun and hands on, but instead a woman just monotonously spoke at us. We thought we’d be able to try the rum... we could for an extra $10. Tour lasted half an hour.
Really really unkind on the poor donkey who has to parade around in a circle whilst being tied up to show tourists what used to happen with cocoa.
Lunch was 2/10. Not recommended.

We appreciate all reviews as all our guests’ opinions are very important to us. It's unfortunate that you did not to enjoy any aspect of the Historical Estate tour which takes you through the replica Carib Village, the herbal garden, the 18th century copra oven, the cocoa house and the sugar mill. Along the way you get to see first-hand the building techniques used, the lifestyle of the era, the processes used to produce copra and the first stages to producing chocolate and extracting sugar as well as being offered to taste the coconut, cocoa and sugar cane throughout the tour. Our rum tour can be enjoyed for $5 where you get to taste several local rums produced right here on island in the distillery, a great value compared to trying different rums at a bar. Thank you for your concern for the donkey that you saw, we have more than one donkey so that they do not work every day. The donkeys are only harnessed on the sugar mill during the demonstration where they do to two circles and then thoroughly enjoy the sugar cane husk that they are fed during each demonstration as a treat. When there are no tours they are unharnessed and graze nearby. They spend no less than 20 hours daily grazing as they please. Our local cuisine buffet style lunch with local bread, fresh salad, calypso rice, lentils, dasheen, breadfruit, plantain, stew/curry chicken, creole fish and cake for dessert is quite tasty and offers a range to chose from and I’m sorry it did not meet your expectations. Thanks again for your review, I hope I have given you some assurance that the donkeys are well taken care and I hope the rest of your stay on our beautiful island of St. Lucia was very enjoyable.
