A great tour off the beaten path

The tour was very informative. Learned all there is to know about rum. We are already looking for local retailers especially for Gingeroo!

We have been to NewOrleans at least a dozen times. This was our first trip to the OldNewOrleansRumDistillery. We booked/paid in advance online ($15 each). Where to catch the free shuttle was clear and it was so convenient (behind stall #27 in the FrenchMarket)! We were greeted with a delicious HotRumCider followed by a tour. Then, we came back into...

We made an advance reservation and were picked up by van at the French Market. The distillery was a short 10 minutes away. Bob, an enthusiastic gentleman with a fun personality, was both our driver and our informative tour guide. Upon arrival at the distillery, we were impressed by the lovely post-Impressionist paintings on the wall. We learned that these... More

Absolutely loved our tour of the Rum Distillery & highly recommend it to anyone visiting the NOLA!! They offer a complimentary (very convenient) shuttle, delicious samples of rum & a very intimate tour of the distillery. Bob, our tour guide, was very informative & really knew the entire process & inner workings of the distillery. As a person that works... More

We decided to check this place out while visiting New Orleans and now we are glad we did. Upon arriving we bought our tour tickets. Normally I do not like tours because they interesting but I them because my boyfriend enjoys them. After paying we were offered a mixed drink that included their rum. My goodness it was so yummy!!!... More

Very nice informative tour & tasting. We were picked up promptly from the French market at 3:30 for our 4 pm tour. (They should really rethink the peeling green duct tape spelling out gingeroo on the side of the shuttle. Very tacky) upon arriving we were offered a warm or ice pomegranate rum drink. We had 2 warm & one... More

I really hate giving tour attractions 1 star reviews, but in this case, it is necessary. First, we did not even get to experience the distillery because the company called at 1:27pm to tell me they were "unable to pick me up," for my scheduled 1:30pm pickup at the French Market. They offered to pay for my taxi or Uber... More

Very different. Cross between a winery and a distillery. Excellent tour very interesting rum. More depth than the run of the mill stuff. Ordered some shipped home. Worth doing. Get the tour bus from French Market. Call for times.
