What people are saying about San Juan, Puerto Rico

My family had an amazing time on this food tour. I try to do a food tour every chance I get when traveling and this was by far the best one. This was entirely because of our guide Pablo. His passion for Puerto Rican cuisine and knowledge of its history and cultural was astounding. And, of course, the places he took us were exceptional. I’ll be back to PR with some friends and will do it again.

It was nice learning about the history of the distillery and the process of how the Bacardi Brand came to be. It was truly an awesome experience and I would recommend the tour to anyone that has interest or love of Rum.

The tour was amazing, the food delicious the talking points and history learned was fun! Lorna was an amazing guide

Nice, quick tour with very informative, high- energy guide! Get a free cocktail and a legacy shot to cap it off :)

Amazing experience! Definitely recommended to everyone. We had great time. Worths every cent!
