Visit Old San Juan and the Bacardi Distillery
Departing from the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista in Old San Juan, this tour takes you on a two-hour stroll along the Paseo de la Princesa (Princess Promenade) to La Fortaleza, which is currently the official residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico.
The visit to the Bacardi Distillery Factory (known as the Rum Cathedral) defines why Puerto Rico is known as the Rum Capital of the World. First, enjoy a guided tour of the grounds and the Bacardi plant, which is considered the world’s largest rum distillery, processing over 10,000 gallons daily. Learn all about the interesting rum-making process and sample the different rums’ flavors while relaxing in the distillery’s open-air pavilion.
Our walking tour ends at Hotel El Convento, adjacent to all the shops and restaurants. Your guide is happy to answer any questions you have about additional sightseeing, dining or shopping plans, and other Puerto Rico tours with Pandora Tour Puerto Rico.
