We had an English speaking tour guide who was very good. The history of the family, there home, and the DonQ rum dynasty is very fascinating.

In the historic City of Ponce, with a heritage district full of jaw-dropping architecture, what can possibly top that? A castle on the hill over-looking it all, of course. A must see when visiting Ponce! Opulent & grand, prepare to be immersed in the lifestyle of a family dynasty built on rum. If you need a tour in English call... More

When I arrived with my family the only tour available at the time was the one in Spanish. My mother is from PR, so for her, this wasn't a problem. Our tour guide was SO NICE! Even though I understood most of what he said, my friend that went with us didn't understand anything that was going on. After the... More

The castle is pretty. Do not take a stroller as it is hard to move around. If you are in ponce it is a must to go there. I wish we would have time to go to the Don q distillery. Lots of history there

We went to the tour at 14:30 hrs in spanish. You can enter only with the tour. You have to park outside along the road. The tour was great, we went first for a video and then around the house. The guide explained all the history and it was really interesting. The castle has an amazing view. After the tour... More
