We were received at the Second Floor bar, provided with Bacardi Testing and an explanation of the brewing process. Our Guide was an excellent representative of the area and provided a lot of local information as well as making the Tour exciting and worthwhile.

Jaime was incredible! This is an awesome experience that doesn’t consume a whole day of your trip. We had cruise passengers as well as resort guests on our tour so don’t wait and book this experience now before someone else does.
