    Informative tour with delicious samples.
    We set up our tour a couple of days before the actual tour and glad we did. We really enjoyed learning about the liqueur, tasting some samples, and trying a drink. The tour was less than hour and then you could stay while you enjoyed your cocktail (or even order more). It was a perfect outing for us.

    Okay tour
    Very short tour and hard to hear the guides as there are other people doing tours. They kind of bombard your tour it seems they are from a tour bus with their own guide. You can basically walk through and learn the same thing in your own. They have this spray towards the end that is very potent so people were gagging as the guides insisted they tried and sprayed them even when saying no. It was interesting and glad to go but took longer than it should have.

    Very handy
    We missed the option to tour due to arrival time and had limited options to try the product. They offered 3 flavors for free. We sat outside and ordered drinks at the bar area and then toured the gift shop. Friendly and lots of options for purchase of their products and Anna Bay rum.

    A MUST when visiting Curacao!
    This is a great option for a quick tour to learn about the island and the liqueur. It is pretty interesting and it's short and sweet. Depending on the tour you buy, you can try some drinks at the end, take advantage of the gift shop. You can't go to the island without doing this tour!

When you arrive, do not take the guided tour, it would be throwing money away. This distillery is very small. In fact it is difficult to believe that all of the bottles of Blue Curacao found around the world come from this one place. For example:The bottles are filled by one girl who was doing it by hand. There is only one still that has been in use from the very beginning and it looks a bit rusty where the tubes connect.The reason a tour guide is not necessary is because there are descriptive plaques adjacent to each part of process and they also describe the history of the immediate area.

We came here as part of an excursion from Royal Caribbean. The history of the Blue Curacao liquor (and multiple other flavors) was interesting but about 5 mins worth. Tasting of the various flavors followed by the mandatory exit through the gift shop. More tourist trappy than most.

Great tour of the Curacao Liqueur Distillery. Not too long and interesting, very nice staff, and liqueur tasting and cocktails followed included in the ticket price. Not too crowded when I went, but the busses were coming in when I left. Great for a cruise ship excursion when you don't have a ton of time or to visit while staying locally on the beautiful island. Know the cabs are not cheap. We were charged $20 for 2 and told that was the minimum. We shared a cab with another couple of people on the way back and it was $15 for 2 to go from the distillery to the ship. Check and see if ship excursions are worth the money given the round trip cab fares. Enjoy!

We got Curacao from Curacao! Great tour guide. Our group was about 20 people. But tour buses come through without a guide so there can be a ton of people there at a time. Our guide took our drink order after the tour and brought the drinks to us.
Not too far from the cruise port.

I went with the Duxe guided tour and it was very much worth it! I got a fun and educational tour from a friendly guide, Eli. Afterwards I got two cocktails. I could choose from various ones all of them had a Curaçao liquor in it.

So much fun. I highly recommend to all who like alcohol, history and learning how liquor is made.

We wish we could have heard what the guide had to say - tour group of 20 was TOO large. Three samples after the tour were good. Tour guides were the waiters as well. Ours got mixed up and forgot some people’s orders. Fortunately the other tour guide was efficient and helped out. My partner still waited 20 minutes for his drink. It just seemed like a sales pitch to buy their liquor!

We came here when here on a cruise ship stop driving a rental car but not part of a shore excursion. We didn't pay for a tour but a cruise ship tour was there and we walked through the factory with them. The tour is a warehouse with some exhibits on the history and bottling procedures of the liquor. It is small with labeling done by hand. Then they have you taste small samples of blue, tamarind and chocolate. My husband got a frozen drink at the bar and we visited their gift shop. Pleasant and clean for a short stop although not a must see. We used google maps to find it.

We stopped here as part of a tour and found it to be fun and informative. It stuns me how small this place is despite their producing all the varieties of Curaçao Liquor sold worldwide!

Our guide walked us through showing us the four displayed of the secret ingredients used. The staff throughout were welcoming and we enjoyed the tastings. Tamarind and chocolate appeared to be the crowd favorites. The courtyard is inviting and comfortable. You can purchase drinks as well as liquor and souvenirs. Restrooms are available.

We stopped by the distillery through an all-island tour and although our stop was short we enjoyed the self-guided museum and liqueur samples, as well as a delicious drink from the bar. There's a gift purchasing opportunity small shop as well. The courtyard was quiet and added ambiance while we finished our drinks.

We did a self walk through which takes about 5-10 minutes. It's pretty much 1 large room with some good historical history of their product. Then off to a small tasting area just prior to the bar where you can buy drinks. We did enjoy a frozen drink and then shopped in the gift shop where we did buy a small bottle. Entire trip was about 20 min. Absolutely no need to take an excursion off a cruise ship here. Just get a cab and check it out if you like.
