Princess did a fine job on the tour. It was a bit “elementary” though, and could have focused a little more on relevant history. It also got political when observing a statue of Christopher Columbus. The food, although good, was very much Conch focused. They did do some steamed chicken, rice, Mac and cheese, etc, but nothing very exotic. If you get the opportunity to upgrade to alcoholic beverages, do it. You’ll be happy you did.

Ron..The 5 Star Captain!!

We had a lovely time with Captain Ron! Taught us a lot about Nassau and the Bahamas through the friendliest conversations ever experienced with a tour guide. Expect to hear a lot of his personal stories to help get a better picture of the bahamian history and lifestyle. And he took us to many places to discover the delicious cuisine in Nassau. Will truly be looking forward to do it again and will definitely recommend our friends and family to do it whenever they need a tour of Nassau Bahamas.

Nice guide but too long!
Leslie_J

Lasted three hours - too long! Should have been two hours at the most. The first (chicken, rice and peas, plantains, baked macaroni) and third (conch slider) stops were great. The second (conch soup)and fourth (planters punch) were ok. The last stop - a small slice of rum cake at a souvenir shop- I could have totally done without. Our guide was very friendly and full of interesting tidbits about the town.

Will was our tour guide and he was awesome. Very knowledgeable of the culture and the history of Nassau as well as the food. We got way more out of this tour than expected. The food we tried was great and from local less touristy places. There was a lot of walking through the town so we got to see more "true" nassau and not just the tourist trap strip. Even with the walking Will always tried to keep us in the shade as best he could. The tour went longer than expected, 6 people about 3.5 hours, so sadly we had to leave before the last tasting to head to another thing we had booked. And truly I wish we hadn't had to, Will was so fun to hang with and I wish we could have learned more from him.

We enjoyed some wonderful Bahamian food while learning a little bit of Bahamian history and culture. Krista, our guide, was very knowledgeable and funny. The walk was nice, although very hot, so don't forget to bring water, a hat, and sunscreen.

My husband and I went on the tour when we stopped in Nassau on our cruise. The tour is the perfect amount of time for a cruise traveler and the meeting spot is very close to the port so it's really convenient. The food was all incredible! My husband had made a list of Bahamian food that he wanted to try on our trip and almost all of it happened to be included on this tour! So much easier than trying to hop around and figure it all out ourselves. The walking was totally manageable, nothing too strenuous even in the heat. My husband has low vision and I helped him out when needed, and he did fine. Our guide even pointed out to the group when there were sidewalk issues, steep areas, etc. so that was very appreciated. LISA!!!!!! (I told you I would use six exclamation marks and I wasn't lying!) I can't say enough about Lisa as a guide. She was friendly, funny, and full of knowledge. She made sure everyone was having a good time without being annoying...you know some of those guides who just seem fake and make people participate to the point where they're uncomfortable? She was the opposite of that. So genuine and kind with an obvious love of Nassau and its history. We learned so much from her and I wish we could have spent more time there because of it! (I've already started looking at future trips to Nassau, and maybe even a stay at the Towne Hotel to hang out with Max.) Lisa really has the perfect personality and skill set for this job, I hope she loves it as much as she seems to!
