“MUST DO 21+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

One of the most fun, yet educational tours I have been on! Definitely a MUST SEE/ MUST DO while in New Orleans! Old New Orleans Cajun Spice is one of my favorite rums so when I found out there were tours of the distillery I had to go. The tour is a reasonable price and they offer a shuttle service to and from your hotel because it is a little off the beaten path.

“Delicious Rum, Interesting Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

It was a great tour for the afternoon. It was only $10 and everything we had was delicious. Not to mention picking us up from the bar across from our hotel was convenient. If your schedule looks like it needs a break from the history or a break from the bars this is the perfect solution.

“A must for your trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This van showed up on time, the tour was educational, the samples of rum were interesting and different. This group does a great tour. Make sure you book the free shuttle van as it is too far to walk.

“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Be sure to visit this off the beaten path place when you are in New Orleans! A great tour, fun information, and even better tastings! If you go on the weekend when the don't offer shuttle service, be sure to check your directions or call for a cab driver that's been there! It can be a little hard to find, but well worth the hunt!!! (if you are smart, offer to pay your cab drivers fee for the tour so you don't have to call for a return, its a win win for both you and the driver.)

“Fun for an afternoon adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

So I don't think I would have made a trip to New Orleans for this tour specifically, but it was still a fun part of the afternoon. We got to each of the different rums, which was included in the $10 per person cost of the tour. The guide was very informative, and we got to see each step of the brewing and do stilling process.
