There are some samples of the liquor and a self-walking tour that takes about 5-10 minutes but not much else to see. People are friendly and it is free so those are the positives.

Well, it's free until you go shopping through the gift shop on the way out! You get to walk through a small portion of the facility where they are filling and sealing bottles. It's a partially-automated process and interesting to watch for a few minutes. The best part is at the end where there are samples of the different flavors... More

There is a store at the end where there was a guy with some... More

They give you to try all the flavor of rum they have and I learned that the Curacao rum had 5 different types of flavors aside the famous Blue Curacao.

Walk through distillery "museum" and taste liqueurs. People are nice, but the big tour buses are constant, and it's no better than average. Not worth your precious vacation time.

Our guide from 'Touring with Miguel' brought us here on a 2 hour tour of Curacao. We read a little about the history of the island, and we saw how they make Curacao liquor in small batches with actual people doing bottling. We sampled the liquor and shopped for souvenirs. It was an interesting stop on our tour. I would... More

We visited while on a bus tour of Curacao. Our guide from the bus actually gave the tour. I enjoyed learning about the origin of the liqueur. Our guide did a great job tying it into the history of the island. We were shown an old still and an array of liquor bottles. Then we were escorted to a gift... More

We sampled all the different flavors of Liqueur nd i loved the coffee flavor. The staff were very friendly and service oriented, could leave the factory without a few bottles of Liqueur to share with my friends and family.

We visited the distrillery on a shore tour when stopping in Curacoa. It was very interesting. I didn't know that Curacao Liqueur came in so many flavours. The guide was very nice, very informative. Gift shop at the end of the tour, so you could purchase souvenirs.
