Freeport Perfume Factory and Brewery Tour Excursion Reviews

Tour the production and bottling facility of a local Bahamian Brewery - then try some! At the perfume factory, go behind the scenes of a working fragrance production operation, and take advantage of the opportunity to mix your own special fragrance, bottle it and name it.
The brewery part of the trip was great, the rest not so much.

The perfume factory was OK. The brewery tour was too short, but everyone was given several samples and as much beer as they could drink in the hour or so we were there. The real gem of the tour was the bus driver, Tiny. He had so much great information to share about Freeport! He was the best part of the island and excursion experience. The tour lasted about 4 hours, and we got back just in time to enjoy lunch on the ship. Read Less

Our tour guide Tiny was awesome. He was full of knowledge about the island and the stops on our tour. I loved that he made it clear when everyone needed to be back on the bus and made it clear that he was leaving at that time. The brewery portion of the tour was the most fun and you were able to try several different beers and a non-alcoholic beer as well. Well worth the cost. Read Less

Although Freeport is rundown, we enjoyed our excursion with Tiny! Ask for Tiny. He was the best. He gave us a wonderful tour of Freeport, took us to the Perfume Factory, the market to do some shopping, then onto the Brewery Tour - which was very enjoyable! Bottomless beer! And they were all very good. Highly recommend! Read Less

If you want to be laughing all day then this is the thing to do. Tiny was our guide and he was so funny. He made jokes left and right, but was very informative at the same time. Make sure you get back to the bus though because he will leave you if you are to late. Make sure before you get on the bus you have thought up some corny joke because he likes to hear one in order for you to get back on. watching people try to come up with jokes was pretty much the best thing ever. after the brewery tour they take you into the bar area to taste test the brew and you get more time to talk with tiny and he basically is just one joke after another keeping everyone joking, drinking, and laughing. It was amazing. We wanted to get a picture of Tiny which is quickly posed for, but just as quick as he went to pose did he break it. he then proceeds to ask if we wanted to see tinys funny face. the answer was with out a doubt yes. Well that face was pretty much priceless. He was a bundle of personality and made Freeport a wonderful experience. He was fun and but also knew so much about the history and a lot of other general knowledge about the island. We had a blast. His funny face is making it into the scrap book and a permanent memory for us for life! Read Less

As many of you will notice from reading the other comments, Tiny was very good. He has a plethora of information on the Bahamas. The perfume factory seemed to be more of a tourist trap stop to purchase perfume. It was this little house and there was no productivity going on, they spent a lot of time in the initial living room space explaining how their sales floor was set up. Port Lucaya was a nice shopping experience with local people selling their products. Nothing seemed to over priced and they were not pushy at all. Final stop was the Bahamian brewery. This had lots to see of the brewing process and finally samples at the end. There were plenty of samples to be drank. The tour got you back to port in time to spend some time there. It is recommended to make sure you stop by the coconut guy with the machete and get a drink. Read Less

Our driver Tiny was exceptional, kept us entertained, giving us the history and information on the areas we drove through. Perfume factory isn't a good stop if you are allergic to scents. The shopping area is now defunct, though there were a few"shops" in the abandoned buildings. The Lucaya shopping area was good, but not enough time to get any food. The Brewery tour was informational, and the beers were great. First taken aback when you were forced to slug down six quick samples, but then adequate time and quantities for you to try your favorites. Read Less

We ran to it for 5 min and ran back to the bus because we only had 30 minutes. The brewery tour was great. Awesome tour leader and all the beer you can drink. The bus ride is also fun and you can learn a lot about the city. Read Less

This was a spur-of-the moment stop on an independent taxi tour of Freeport. The Sands Brewery offers tours, we were told they were normally $15, but since we can in a taxi they would only charge us $5. The tour lasted about 30 minutes, then we sampled the 6 or 7 beers the plant produces for another half-hour or so. Again, we hadn't planned this, but we drove past the brewery on the way back to the ship. Read Less
