  • Tour was part of Old San Juan tour. Includes a complimentary drink at the start of the tour. The history of Bacardi was interesting but did not see much of the distillery.

  • If it's your first trip to Puerto Rico, you simply can't pass up a visit to Casa Bacardi. The mixology tour is an exceptional experience. Truly a first class operation, rich with history and culture. Hands down the best Bacardi cocktails i've ever had. I proudly display my Bacardi Mixology Certificate in my office!
  • Mixology tour is a must. Felt a little rushed, but includes four drinks which made it worth it :) One at the start while you wait for the tour to commence. The bartender will ask you three trick questions and if you get them all right, you get a free shot! The other three (daiquiri, cuba libre, and mojito) you learn how to make yourself right after taking a tour.
  • We took this tour on Saturday morning before heading to the cruise ship. We had read reviews and knew that on the historical tour we would not be going through the distillery. That was was tour we decided to take based on the time we had and the tastes of our group. The $15 seemed reasonable. We were very pleased with Karla our guide. She was funny, gave us great information, and had a wonderful experience. She didn't rush us and answered all of our questions. We enjoyed our drink at the bar and we got to take home our glasses as souvenirs. As an added bonus, the hotel where we stayed gave us a ticket for an extra gift which was a pair of Bacardi sunglasses. Great Tour!
  • I would give 5/5 but the museum was kinda hard to find because there weren't a lot of signs to guide us there, and we had to stop and ask for directions. We chose the cheapest tour option and it was a lot of fun. I'm 19 so it was cool to be able to get a drink legally, since I can't at home. Our tour guide was very nice and his English was great which made the tour enjoyable. They have a few cute little photo booths to take pictures sent to your email, which are a nice souvineer to have. They also have a place in the gift shop where you can fill your own souvineer bottle of rum and get it engraved that is really cool!
  • Real in depth history about the humble beginnings of Bacardi. I didn't know they started in Cuba before moving to PR. Highly recommend the mixology tour. Eric, you're an awesome tour guide... keep up the good work, dude. For the gear heads reading this, Cummins Caribbean is right next door.
