The bus driver/tour guide/game show host, was a total hoot. The lady at the check in was so friendly as well. Very interesting learning experience. Awesome tasting rum. The people on the tour with us helped make it awesome too. Highly recommend this!

This was an awesome tour and the rum is out of this world! Bob was a fantastic shuttle driver, historian, tour guide, and bartender! The time and science that goes into their rum making process is incredible and definitely worth learning about. You walk away...More

We had a blast on our tour, the only problem:issue was the fact that there were 29 people on the tour and for the tasting. This led to difficulty hearing, seeing and enjoying our time. We had a very yummy cocktail, but were not given...More

Love being picked up in French Quarter by Shuttle. Bob was excellent, and so was the rum. We brought back 2 bottles of the Gries Gries and one of the spice. Will buy more next time we go, this year.

I’m sorry I have no idea if minors can attend the tour. If they could attend, I think they would be bored. For the adults, several tastings of the different rums are provided. Not for kids in my opinion.

They only offer the tour at specific times, so in order to get the exact time we wanted, we booked online in advance. Also, if you are planning on using their shuttle, you definitely need to book in advance. Enjoy!
