Who knew that learning about history pirates, NASCAR and rum could be so interesting but Mikey made it that! AND who knew a flight of rum could be so diverse. My family says hands down this is the best food tour we have ever taken. All I want is the Rum Cupcake Recipe.

We loved our tour with Julio! We had a blast drinking some rum and learning a little history behind everything. We weren’t sure if we were going to like the tour or Nassau but we had a wonderful time and didn’t want it to end and leave!

I would give our tour guide Mikey 5 stars! He had us laughing from start to finish and was a wealth of knowledge. Went with 4 stars because the first samples we had were 4 different Bacardi’s and Captain Morgan. I had hoped it would be more micro distilled rums specific to the
