  • Thinking that we were going to see the actual distillery, instead we were taken by a Disneyland type motorized train to a building that provided us with a Disney Like Replica of the distillery operations and history of Bacardi which ends up in a large gift shop where you can purchase Bacardi products at full price. The only thing good about this trip is the mixed drink they serve before Bacardi takes you on their Fantasy Island tour.

  • Great fun loved the tour!

  • We had a great time. Great experience.

  • It was a great tour and our tour guide, Javier Guzman from Watersports was really awesome!!! He was very informative, friendly and professional. Totally worth it!

  • We did this on our first day, and it was a great way to see several things quickly. Each stop was very interesting. We had a great tour guide who provided lots of information at each point along the way.

  • The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. The biggest con was that he was running late and then at our last hotel pickup, the people weren't there so we wasted even more time in the van. This caused us to be raced through the distillery and The Fort. My husband and I are both history buffs so I was very upset about being raced through the fort since it was getting close to closing time. I am sure I would have thoroughly enjoyed the tour with this guide if we had been on time. I suggest if you want to take this tour, take it in the morning so if you are running late, you may not be raced through the sights.

  • So well organized! I was only in San Juan for a short time and this was a great way to spend an afternoon seeing different areas I wouldn't have had time to see otherwise.

  • was a great tour of Bacardi ,el Castillo fort and old san juan

  • Because we couldn't be picked up at the El Conquistador, we had to pay 33.00 at the Ritz to park. Tour guide had such a thick accent we could not understand him. He took us to Barcardi and dropped us off for the tour, took us to the old fort and dropped us off to explore on our own, took us to Old San Juan dropped us off to look around,
    I could have done all of this on my own instead of paying for a guided tour. I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism of this tour, lack of history of Puerto Rico, and help with getting around.

  • 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.
