We had booked the Bacardi tour and Old San Juan City tour but it got cancelled due to an Ironman Race so we woulnd up just going it on our own. We grabbed a taxi from the airport to Bacardi, it was $45 which was a bit steep but we had no choice since there is no Uber at the airport. Bacardi was awesome. We did the historical and Rum tasting tour. Our tour guides were great. They were very knowledgeable and took great care of us. Read Less

We had time in between leaving the ship and our flight and this was the perfect thing to do! We boarded a van outside the ship, and went on a city tour and a tour of the Bacardi Rum Distillery. Upon arriving, we were given a welcome drink, then learned about the history of Bacardi Rum. We then had a drink of choice - ours being the Mojito, and were taught the correct way to make a Mojito. Would definitely recommend. Read Less

We paid 25 cents to take the ferry each way and a cab ride for $8.00 (shared by 3 couples). We got there and the people in front of us were the last to get into the tour (we were too late). However, they gave us each a free drink ticket in a collector cup - the bartenders make quite a show of mixing your drink. There was a lovely covered seating area and even though we missed the tour, the grounds were great and the ferry ride with the locals was fun. Also some good shopping at tables set up near the pier.

This was one of the best excursions we have done. We had the upgraded tour with a mixology class at the end of the tour. It was great fun, with a ton of laughs. We were a smaller group of just 19 people from the ship.

We did the San Juan City and Bacardi Factory Tour through NCL. The highlight of the city portion of the tour was a stop at Fort San Cristobal. This is part of the U.S National Park system and was open despite the partial government shutdown. We spent about an hour touring the fort and that was about all the time you needed. We re-boarded the tour bus and headed over to the Bacardi factory. They provide you with a welcome drink as well as a ticket that can be redeemed for another drink at the end of the tour. The factory tour was interesting and lasted about 1.5 hours. You learned about the history of the company and the process of making rum. It was a pleasant way to spend the day. Read Less

Poorly planned tour.
Sail Date: December 2018
Poorly planned tour. Lots of waiting in line. Tour guide gave lots of great information but the organization of the tour is not worth the long drive and waiting around -- unless you love rum.

The basic tour of the distillery was a joke. The history of the company was given and the process described but we didn't see the actual workings. However, we had the Mixology lesson included and that was fun. We each got a workstation with all the equipment and ingredients to make three classic rum cocktails. We were carefully guided through the steps. Then, we got to drink our creations. That plus a welcome cocktail when we first arrived. This was all before noon! Read Less
