  • We visited San Juan on a family cruise and half of us decided to do the Bacardi factory tour. We took the advice from other reviewers and took the ferry across to Catano where the factory is. It's abo...  more »

  • We went on the historic tour. The place is really cool and the history is interesting, but the tour was just okay. Maybe try one of the other tours. On the historic one, the bulk of it was a video that hadn't been redone since the 90s. The drinks were great at the end and the tour guide was good. I am glad I went. I just wasn't impressed by the tour itself.
  • This was a lot of fun! Don't be scared off by the prices, definitely worth it. We did the tasting. You get 5 different rums and learn about each of them. Also you get a mixed drink (included) of your choose while waiting for the tour to start. Staff is very friendly, and before you start the tasting they offer to call a taxi for you if needed for when you are finished. Good to know they want people to be responsible
  • Best. Tour. Ever. Felix our tour guide was awesome in give us the history of Bacardi. He then helped guide us during our tasting of the sipping rums offered at Bacardi. The most amazing part of this tour for me was when I was able to bottle my own bottle of rum complete with engraved bottle. The rum that I bottled is only available at the Bacardi Distillery. Truly a unique bottle of rum that is all mine; very limited and very rare.
  • Casa Bacardi “Worth a Visit” My son wanted to visit when we were in Puerto Rico so this was his idea. This is a very good trip to learn the history of how Bacardi became one of the top Rums in the world and how the empire was formed and it evolved over the years. One of my questions is why they chose a bat for it's trademark, we got the answer after watching one of the videos that is presented on the tour (you will have to go on the tour for the answer). Plan on spending about an hour from start to finish on the "Historical Tour". Visited March 2016
  • I took the historic tour. I learned a lot about Bacardi, and rum in general. It was definitely worth the $15 to get in.
