“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.

“Recommended if you are there for anything more than Bourbon St.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

My gf and I both loved the tour. They offered free pick up and drop off from the French Quarter. It's $10 a person, but they have coupons on the local tourist map they hand out at the tourist office in the southern French Quarter. With coupon it was $15 for 2.
Our guide was an older gentleman, very nice. He was interesting and friendly, even pointing out the water marks on the posts from hurricane Katrina!
They gave us a rum punch for the tour, then we did a sample of everything they sell (about half shot each). They also let you try the moonshine ;) lol. The price was awesome, you'd spend more at any bar for the same amount. And the quality was quite good! Our favorite was the Cajun rum. Give it a shot. Literally.
