Fantastic tour! Our guide Robert was great and we learned so much of PR's history. Truly worth it and will definitely be booking again next time we are there with the rest of the family. I can't explain how happy we were w/the tour and our guide. Robert really made it that much better. Thank you!!

This was a really laid back and enjoyable tour! It was great to take a break from all the outdoor adventures and learn more about Puerto Rico. The tour bus arrived promptly at our hotel and was incredibly comfortable and was well air conditioned. Our tour guide, Robert was very friendly and had lots of information. Our tour started at Casa Bacardi. We were given complimentary glasses and a ticket for a complimentary drink we had three options. There were more drink options that you could get at an additional cost. The drink had an ample amount of Bacardi and was very flavorful. The bar area was open and lots of seating. We also had a buzzer to tell us when we would get to go on the guided tour. The tour started with a super short 100 feet tram ride. The tram ride ended at the visitor's center, where we watched an 8 minute film including old Bacardi ads and a tidbit of Bacardi's history. This was followed by a short tour of a reproduction of the distillery and some historical artifacts. There were also small rooms where you could smell the different scents of all Bacardi flavors. Just like a theme park ride, it ended at the gift shop. The gift shop as a cool photo booth where you can take a photo to send to yourself. The Bacardi tour was overall underwhelming but still fun. We then went to Fort Castillo, where Robert gave us a tour. He was very informative and even entertaining! You can choose to forgo the tour of the fort and have more time in Old San Juan, but you won't regret going to the Fort. The Fort is massive and has beautiful views of the ocean and the city, which is great for photo ops! Following this, we went to Old San Juan where we were given an hour to wonder on our own. There's lots of restaurants and shops in the area. You can choose to spend more time there and forgo the tour bus ride back and instead take a cab back at an addition price of course.

Our tour guide, Jaime was amazing. He was informative, yet light and funny! It was definitely more than I thought it was going to be.

Not good value for the money. Very professional, clean transportation. Tour guide was on time and well informed, but, the Bacardi tour was underwhelming really more of a tour of their museum and not the actual distillery/facilities which is what we thought it was going to be based on other tours we've done like this. Tour of Old San Juan was fine until the end. Fort tour was too long and then driver, basically drove us all around the streets at a slow speed and pointed things out through the window. We couldn't see much, were annoying traffic behind use all the honking created anxiety more than anything and we would much preferred to get out and walk around. The tour was 5 HOURS LONG!!!! We were starving, tired, cranky, and then only had 1 hour to shop/eat in old San Juan before we were to get back in the van. We ended up staying and taking a cab home on our own, so transportation was NOT included as the tour indicates only if you are staying at select hotels in San Juan by the airport- anywhere else, expect to fork over 70-80, each way, for a cab. Ended up costing us an additional 150 in cab cost on top of the tour cost. NOT WORTH IT. It ended up being a waste of an afternoon for us. You would be better taking a cab and doing a foot tour yourself, rather than pay for this and be trapped in a van for almost 5 hours.

After the Bacardi Tour which was done by another guide we were supposed to be taken to El Morro and the Old San Juan for that tour. The guide simply dropped is off and told us that he would meet back with us in a couple of hours ! If I had wanted to tour by myself I would never have paid the for this so called tour. Basically we paid almost 200 for a drink at Bacardi.
