This tour is $4USD, and upon our arrival they were not accepting credit for entry, only gift shop, and "did not have change." Ensure you come prepared with exact entry free incase this is always the case! Our tour guide was very fun, I wish I had of gotten his name - he was very informative and answered all of our questions! You do not see in person how the rum is made per se, but you do go inside of a really cool building filled with barrels of fermenting rum! A short video that does show, and explain, the process is part of the tour as well. I think we were given about 8 samples of delicious rum to try at the end! Very clean and pretty grounds with some cool photo ops! Rum is well priced in gift shop. I’m including a business card for the AMAZING tour guide that brought us here! Jahaziel took us here amongst many other places in the city and I cannot recommend him enough!!

Was on a cruise, Carnival Horizon. Decided to do the city tour, This was on the tour. I enjoy the tour. It's a walk through. Then a short movie that gives you more of the history, They do a tasting but I don't drink. Even through the tasting the tour guide would tell you about that flavored rum. Afterwards you could go into the story,

We decided to take a taxi guided tour off the cruise and were so happy we did. Our guide brought us to the famous rum factory where we were able to take a tour with a group. We started in their liquor store while we waited to join others for the tour. They had popsicles for $1 w/o liquor and $2 with. Yes!!! We then went for a tour of the factory where we learned the history of rum and got to try their famous island rum. It was so smooth you didn't need a chaser. Their prices are amazing and we got to learn more about the island and its heritage.

Don't expect much in the way of an actual tour of facility but there is an interesting video and a pretty nice tasting at the end of it. Basically, your entrance fee is the cost of the tasting. But it was fun and interesting

I’m not a big rum drinker but, this was a neat experience for only $4 pp. you were able to learn about the whole rum making process. It’s a walking tour … more of a lesson about the history of rum opposed to a factory tour. Very interesting I would recommend… you were able to taste test like 8-9 different rums at the end and them purchase some at their store

The tour was nice, the place is really well prepared and charming, we had an almost VIP tour (the two of us and a guide) and then there is tasting in a fancy-styled bars. As opposed to Brugal - the rum is rather poor. But it is still a place worth visiting.

We stopped for the "tour". Not much of a tour. you walk into the aging room where there are hundreds of barrels. Then you watch a movie. Get a brief history of the company and sample different rums. We were expecting a more hands on tour. The factory stuff.

It was part of a tour. Lots of alcohol. We try 8 with the tour. I also tried the canela licor. Bougt it. Taste just like cinnamon heart for valentine day. They also sell popsicle with ou without alcohol. I didn't have time to try but I hear it is good.

I took the tour of the visitor center with rum tasting. The staff were all friendly. We were able to taste 8 or 9 different rums. After which, we stopped for a few minutes at the on-site store. The store also has a bar that sells rum drinks.

So let me just warn you, this isn't a tour. I hope you don't get suckered into coming to this place on a tour. We took a local cab, admission was $4. It cost us about $13 total. You're basically going to walk into a room, where they show you barrels. You will then watch a movie about the company, then enter another room where you'll be shown 2 more things. You're then allowed to sample the 10 rums they have. When I say sample, they pour in maybe 1/10 of a shot. So if you sample each one, its basically like you've taken one shot of rum. Whole tour took about 30 minutes.

I will say the rum is decent and dirt cheap to buy.
