Default Options for San Juan, Puerto Rico

I have pretty much eliminated all but a historical tour or this food and rum tour in San Juan. Which would you suggest? My ship gets there at 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

You can go to the Bacardi factory almost free if you don't book through the ship. Just get into Old San Juan and get to the water taxi, take it across and catch a cab to the factory. Cost about $5 round trip last time I was there. Factory tour is free, with free samples.

There is another rum factory called Don Q's right beside the water taxi terminal. It's also free with free drinks.

Not really interested in the rum factory tours, as one of my main reasons for going is to soak up local culture. Either of the options I found on legendsofpr.com seems to accomodate that well.
