Default Bacardi Rum Distillery in Nassau

Has anyone been to the Bacardi Rum Distillery in Nassau? We are looking for something different to do while there. I have found some information on the distillery, and it states that they give tours twice a day. Has anyone ever done the tour? How far is it from the dock? Is it walkable or would a cab be better?

Thanks for any information!

I didn't know there was one in Nassau, I have heard of the tour in Puerto Rico though...

Hello, yes we were there in Sept. It was a delightful excursion....and tasty too!!
It is on the other side of the island. DH & I rented a scooter, had a ball. We could only purchase 2 bottles, which they put in a nice sturdy box with handles. That way it sat on my lap against my chest & his back.
It would not fit in the scooter compartments. That was why we bought only two.
The distillery has a very nice tour of the facility. Then you go to their outdoor tiki type bar, very large, very beautiful and sample their products. Their drinks are as wild as those on board the ship, and full size too!! As of last Sept, all this was free.

Hope this helps.
