This was one of two tours we booked through Viator and both tours were not very good. On this tour, we were an hour and a half late leaving for the tour. As a result, no time spent on the beach - only rum tasting, beer tasting and a brewery tour. I would not recommend this tour or any Viator... More

The prices at the Rum and Rum Cake Factory are not any better than anywhere else you see the Tortuga Rum Cakes, however, you can sample many of the flavors as well as the rum.

As part of my tour of Grand Cayman with Johanna, I visited this place. It is nice. They sell rum and rum cakes. The rum cake is awesome. One gets to try free samples of rum and cakes, and if you want (I recommend it) to buy, you do. Prices are decent. No pressure at all. There is also a... More

They do not actually make the rum here. It is basically a shop we're they sell rum. Then again there were lots of flavors of rum as well as rum cake. They hade some nice T-shirts as well that were funny as well as other little knock knacks. It was basically a place where the sold you overpriced tourist stuff.

Small tourist spot but the cake is very good and so is the different types of rum. You can buy things here, it is usually a short stop. They do offer free wifi but the connection is not good.

It is a nice store where they sell local rum and rum cakes, not really a tour but you will have a nice chat and taste their rum cakes. It is worth a 20 minute visit if you have a car and are in the area. Incidentally it is across from the distillery so you can combine both.

As part of a Carnival cruise excursion, we stopped for 15 minutes. Ultimately, this is not a factory tour. I did sample the coconut rum and bought several bottles. As far as the rum cake, I didn't think it was that good and did not buy any. The rum that you purchase is sent back to your cruise ship, then... More

ACTUALLY was a store with rum cake and rum samples. Rum can be purchased and will be sent to cruise ship by the stores, so passengers do not check it in upon boarding. Must know your room number. Samples were gracious and rum cake delicious. They had a 5 pack of Mango, coconut, vanilla, pineapple and spiced rum for $20.... More
