Interesting tour but in terms of lots of information not very good 20 mins at the rum factory an hour at the turtle farm

not much else... Georgetown is a total tourist cash place

Rum factory was okay - we got a small sample of rum cake and you could buy rum there but guide said it was the same price at the dock, so stop was nothing special.

You have to a take tender to the port from the ship. The tour was rushed with 15 minutes at each stop and the obligatory gift shop mention. We thought the excursion included a tour of the factory but it was just a rum and cake tasting. The tour did show the beautiful island with clean streets and sidewalks. We felt safe on the island.

This was a great place to stop & taste the wares. The option of having the cakes etc. shipped home, we will certainly take advantage of if we return to Grand Cayman.

For only $75 bucks per person we did Hell, Turtle farm, Rum Cake Factory, Stingray City, and snorkeling. The Stingrays were awesome and so was the turtles. Hell and Rum Cake Factory could be missed if needed...

Would have loved to have had an actual tour of the factory rather than their store only. If you want to skip this, you will not miss a thing.

Would not know, because our tour guide skipped this scheduled stop. The tour start 30 mins late and then the skipped stop was blamed on "traffic".

Rum Cake Factory was part of the Land & Sea tour. Great samples so I bought some to take home. If the rum cakes had been sold from the shops next to the pier that would have been nice.

Lots of samples of rum as well as cakes, fudge and other rum enhanced goodies. A bit crowded, but worth it to check out.

This excursion cost the same as the Cruise Lines one. They just went Stingray on a junkie boat and back 2 1/2 hours. Captain Marvins-We went faster, nicer boat. More Stingray interaction, plus another snorkeling stop, and trip to Tortuga Rum Factory and Hell for only 8 bucks more.5 hours

Part of a general bus tour. Pretty much just a stop designed for us to buy rum cake and rum. Didn't learn anything and the store was very crowded, although the shore behind the store was interesting. Worth a miss.

Definitely in the tourist trap category, but the rum cake was good and the location was beautiful.

Grand Cayman--we decided to do an excursion--the Taste of Cayman. Don't bother! What I waste of money. First, totally unorganized at the dock. Showed up at 9:30 and did not get onto bus until closer to 10 AM. Bus driver's microphone did not work, so unless you were sitting next to him you did not here him talk about the island. The brewery and rum distillery tours were uneventful and the rum cake factory was literally a dirty window you could peer through. Total waste of time and money. The town itself was expensive. We had lunch at a beach side bar and only ordered two sandwiches and two sodas --it was $52 plus tip. Yikes!

Part of the Hell tour but wasn't a factory at all. Just a retail store for their rum products and cakes.

Really just a store - you don't see a factory at all. You can try samples of the cake and the rum.
