Bacardi fans will love this insider’s tour of the distillery that produces one of the world’s most famous rum brands. Enjoy a complimentary libation and learn the history of the company before checking out some of the greatest sights in historic Old San Juan.

The tour starts with an afternoon pickup by minivan from select hotels in San Juan. Then proceed on to Cataño, the facility also known as Casa Bacardi. What is now the world’s largest rum distillery was founded in Cuba in 1862, before moving to Puerto Rico in 1936.

If you are looking for a nice easy afternoon/early evening excursion this is it. They pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. There are only maybe 10 guests total in the van. Each destination is not too long or too short and you get to see three Puerto Rico attractions - Bacardi, Old San Juan and San Cristobal Fort. Driver was friendly and helpful.

This tour is so much fun, especially if you get Frances for your guide. The Bacardi tour is delicious! And just very informative. The old town experience is a step back in time. Quaint shops, bars, restaurants, and an amazing fort make the tour a total pleasure. Thank you Frances!

I enjoyed the tour of Casa Bacardi, and LOVED my time in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The tour guides were very friendly, and encouraged all members of the tours to get to know each other. I felt very save there, and the city reminds me of NYC: it never sleeps-so much to do and see!
