We had a group of 11 on this tour. We had a wonderful time! Our driver/tour guide Leo was the best! If you are lucky enough to have him as your guide, you will have a great time. He is very knowledgeable and we had so much fun with him!
The Rum distillery was the BEST! After all the samples, the bartender said Now you are the bartenders He left us with 12 different bottles of rum on the bar and said Have all you want, you are not driving. The 7 fathoms was the best, and I wish I bought a bottle because you can't buy it in Florida.
The tour itself is informative and fun. We missed the beach, but extended our stay at one of the distilleries. Tour guides were great. The only drawback to the tour was that no one had told us what the local time was, so some of us missed the original tour start, but representatives of Viator that we found took care of us and got us to the distilleries and brewery.
This was such a wonderful adventure. From our meeting with our Amvivo representative through the end. Our driver was very informative and personable. The people of Grand Cayman were welcoming. The distillery was by far the most informative and enjoyable. The only suggestion I have for improvement would be the directions to where the meeting location is - we had to walk several blocks and had a difficult time locating the Amvivo sign. Otherwise, this was a fabulous adventure!
It would of been a five star except the driver was late getting to the port. Also after buying product at the rum cake factory we had to take all of the shopping goods out of the van on two of the next three stops because he had to go do something else, one of the places was the beach where you had to take all of your bags with you to the beach. The beach part just wasn't long enough. The cake factory was good, the beer and rum factory's were fantastic.
We were required to show up to meet at 8:30 a.m. - Tour bus did not arrive. They called another bus and driver and we didn't get out onto the tour until after 9:30 a.m. Rum Distillery was good, though only 20 minutes. Beer Brewery which we wanted to skip was an hour - way too long and we 7 of us sat outside the entire time since the driver and bus left to drive someplace else for another group! FINALLY got to the beach - chaotic! Had someone with a reasonable rate who would provide us with loungers, umbrella and a table we had a 78 yr old in the group, only to be stopped by the tour person there who said she would provide these, then remarked at the end of her little speech with 'oh, there are no tables or loungers' and walk away never to be seen again! This left us with 20 minutes to enjoy our beach stop - which we didn't. We put our 78 yr old in the shade sitting in her walker and grabbed something to drink until the bus and driver came back yes, he left again. Total waste of time - we should have just used a taxi service.
