This place is quite charming. It is the original rum factory. They have a nice free tour of their plant and then they offer you even a complementary drink. The view from the Catano Bay to old San Juan is really astonishing especially during sunset.Recommended for:Local Culture

The actual tour is free, including 2 drinks, you can pay $10 for a mixed drink in a commemorative glass. Take a taxi to the ferry get off ferry take another taxi to Bacardi Factory for free tour. Transportation should be less than $15 round trip. Do not pay $35 to tourist companies for this excursion.

If you like free drinks then this is the excursion for you...but that was the best part of this trip. I enjoyed my two free drinks and the fact that you don't have to pay for this tour, yes its free! I was a little bored during the tour, but maybe I should have waited to have my drinks after the tour so that I had something to look forward to.

Bacardi Rum Factory was a fun place to visit on our own. You definitely do not need a tour guide for it. The ferry from San Juan is very very cheap round trip and once we arrived we took a cab with people to the factory. You get two small complimentary drinks and the 45 minute tour was informative and not too long. I was glad we went but if it was a sunny day I would have rather explored Old San Juan more. All in all it was a fun time.

You get 2 free drink tickets with the tour, there's also a cash bar mixing premium drinks - the $10 mojito was worth every penny, and if you tip your bartender well you're likely to get extra free drink tickets. Well stocked gift shop has unique Bacardi beverages at good prices, too.

This was a fun tour, would have been more fun with more samples - but OK. The guide was extremely friendly and every time she said Puerto Rico she trilled her R's and over emphasized the pronunciation.
