Nae was AMAZING on her first tour!!! she made us all feel comfortable and made conversation easy! The tour itself was very interesting and educational, also showing local places, drinks and the history associated with each.

Best guide for a solo good time!
PortiaOLaughlin, May 2023
Marjorie was the best guide, she gave lots of background info and tips. The tour itself was wonderful, it was nice to learn the backstory to Scryer Rum and have some good cocktails in new places. I absolutely recommend this tour for a great intro to San Juan's drink scene. I went solo and had such a good time, it was a great start to my trip.

Lovely! Thank you so much for your review. ☺️🥑
Cocktails before Dinner
stephanie_l, May 2023
fun time- great upbeat tour guide. Having only done food tours in the past that also included local drinks I prefer that over this. The first stop was a bourbon stop that was interesting then just two other stops- thought there would have been more stops.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hello Stephanie, Thank you for your review. However, we wanted to clarify that we do not offer anything with Bourbon in any of our stops. Our Rum Runners Tour is a three stop tour and all the information can be found in our website and third party vendors, such as Viator. Sorry for the confusion. Thank you so much for joining and spending your afternoon with us!
Old San Juan Experience
BrianJ_C, Apr 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed the Historical significance and perspective of the sites we visited, especially The Mezzanine. Enjoyed the tasting and history at Scryer also the craft cocktails at each of the stops. Ricardo was awesome, extremely knowledgeable and made the tour fun.
Needs Work
Lindlee_D, Apr 2023
Or Guide was Great but the tour itself was boring except for the rum maker was very awesome. The bars were dirty and boring with mediocre drinks
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hey, we are sorry our Rum Tour did not meet your expectations. We have never received this kind of review about that experience since it's of our guests' favourites. We hope you can give us another try next time you are in the island so you can experience the true experience!
Fun, informative Rum tour
Kimberly_U, Mar 2023
Really enjoyed the tasting/educational experience at Skryer Rum. That was unexpected. The bars/cocktails chosen were lovely and Ricardo our tour guide was engaging and informative. We had such a good time.
Lilia_S, Feb 2023

Great primer for first timers in Old Town
Kristy_S, Feb 2023
This was the perfect tour for us to get acquainted with Old Town. Our guide Argeli was very informative and also just fun to hang out with.

Thank you so much Kristy for sharing your experience with us! Tropical Regards! :)
Would not recommend this tour!
Christine_W, Feb 2023
For $90 per person this tour was a huge disappointment. Although our tour guide Hector was friendly, it was a waste of 2- 2-1/2 hours. Scryer was the Rum distillery. The owner gave us a personal history of how he started and we tried some 120 proof rums straight from the barrel. It would have been nice to taste them and then go inside the bar and have in a cocktail, neat, straight up, or however you like it. We were left with the burn and walked on lol. We then walked the cobble stone streets and went to two dive bars that we could have easily found on our own. The bartenders didn’t even acknowledge our group (we were a small tour of only 8 ppl). We waited up-to 15 minutes to have our pre selected cocktails made. At one bar, we were the only ones in there. No history of the establishments, just sit and wait for your drink and move on. Trust me save your $90 and walk off the beaten path and explore this beautiful town on your own. So much culture and history can be done without this tour.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
We are glad you thought our "Tour guide was friendly." Having a friendly and amazing tour guide is a great part of the experience. The Rum Tour that you took is not only about rum but also we sell a historical walking tour with an educated, well trained local tour guide pointing out and explaining the historical points, architectural gems and provided cultural context. We are sorry you did not find the tour worth it, however we appreciate your feedback since it helps us improve our experience. Happy Travels!
Great rum experience in San Juan
Kristin_H, Jan 2023
Our tour guide, Fabian, was punctual, articulate, informative and fun. It was a beautiful night to walk around San Juan and experience some local rum drinks -- not your standard mojito and pina colada. We visited a relatively new rum distillery and then two locals bars. It was a really nice time and I would absolutely recommend it and even do the tour again when I return.
Our guide Corina was...
Hannah_F, Jan 2023
Our guide Corina was lovely and knowledgeable. Stop #1 was a rum tasting which we very much enjoyed. However, stops #2 and #3 led us to very, very loud bars where we could not hear a single word of description of our craft cocktail or about the history of the bars chosen as part of the tour. We definitely recommend selecting different locations for #2 and #3. Thank you.
On The Rum
Shirley_K, Aug 2022
The Rum tour is a must while in Old San Juan. The spots are perfectly orchestrated starting with Rum history. Our tour lead Ricardo was wonderful. His knowledge of the history of Rum, Puerto Rico, and the establishments we visited and so much more was outstanding and provided a lively and fun tour. If you do this ask for Ricardo
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you Shirley!
Fun/History/Cocktails all in one
Erin_K, Aug 2022
Ricardo was a great guide. It was a fun way to walk the streets of Old San Juan, learn a little history and experience local culture.
Drinks it old San Juan
Greg_P, Jul 2022
We learned history about the city and then we stopped at a few local bars and had some great drinks! It was so much and loved the experience!!
Fun Introduction to Old San Juan
Macy_K, Jul 2022
You should absolutely do this tour! Our tour guide Itzel was so great! She was nice and personable and made everyone feel welcome. Her inside knowledge of the area made the tour much more fun and interesting. The tour takes you through a decent bit of the city, so wear walking shoes. Going on the tour is a great introduction to Old San Juan, if you’ve never been. My husband and I made a mental note of places we’d like to explore further the next day. Itzel kept us all entertained, and she was able to offer recommendations on places to eat afterwards. And trust me, you will be hungry! We made three drink stops along the way. Learned A LOT about the history of rum and how it is produced which was very cool and anyone who likes learning will appreciate this part of the tour. The rum and drinks were delicious and a great way to cool off on a hot day. The small group size is also a selling point. We never felt rushed and it allowed for a bit of interaction among the people on the tour. 10/10 recommend. You won’t be disappointed.
Rum tour

Yoli was very knowledgeable and friendly on our tour. We had a great time and got to know other people in our group. We got to walk up and down old San Juan and visit different bars that make up this beautiful region of the island.

Thank you Wilson! We love that you enjoy San Juan. Can't wait to have you back!

First time, but not the last
Caspar_T, Apr 2022
The distillery tour was great. Helped me really understand rum. We stayed at the last stop after the tour to have a romantic drink together.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hello Caspar! The magic of the old city touched your hearts, and great rum your lips! Thank you for your review of our experience and we hope to host you again in the future. Tropical regards!
