This was a great tour with a great tour guide! Excellent tour guide that was funny and energetic.
A completely private tour! It was awesome. Randy and Roxanne were great and very accommodating. Randy drove us around and showed us all Nassau had to offer. They made everything very easy and fun. I would recommend them over the cruise excursions. It was a great price for an awesome tour. Thanks Randy, Roxanne, and the Tyrone Wilson V.I.P. Taxi and Tour Service!
Our guide was well versed in history of the island and gave his full attention to us in this tour.
Great way to tour the Island in a couple of hours
Our driver was Randy. He was pleasant and knowledgeable. I was led to believe that this tour included admission to all sites listed on the tour. At the Queen's Staircase we were told to pay 1 to enter the fort for a tour. Fine. We were then told that to tour the chocolate factory would be 10.75. No one on our tour wanted to do that so we simply moved on. A while later he asked if we wanted to go to the distillery. I assumed again we would have to pay but he did not say either way. At any rate, I stayed quiet and we did not go. I found that quite disappointing. We also picked up passengers who were not part of the tour and gave them a ride to another locale, which I found odd. We did make a stop at the rum cake factory where we got lots of samples, which were delicious.
This was a fantastic excursion. My girlfriend and I were picking up by the pink fountain right as you get off the boat, then we were brought all over the city of Nassau and paradise island. Our guide Sheryl was amazing she bought us to a rum cake factory, paradise island, Atlantis, Shopping, the Queens Staircase and Fort Fincastle, not to mention she bought us all lunch. Would do this in a heartbeat and is a steal compared to excursions booked through the cruises. At the end we were full, well informed and entertained and happy with Sheryl.
i was extremely disappointed with this tour. it was also a private tour. the tour guide did explain things but she seemed to be in a rush. every place we went her response was-you dont want to go there. the only place that i insisted she stp was at the rum factory.
This tour was complete, very nice!!
I really enjoyed this excursion. The lady was very nice and fun. I will take another excursion when I go to the Bahamas again. You guys where great.
This trip was so amazing I don't even know where to begin. This was the most beautiful place I've EVER been. I've done a lot of awesome excursions but this one by far surpasses all of them. If you're not interested in getting up close and personal with iguanas, stingrays and sharks, this trip isn't for you. We took about 1 1/2 hr boat ride to a private Island and fed iguanas. There were probably literally 100 iguanas on the beach when we pulled up. The water is beyond beautiful. After about 30 min there, we went to a different spot called Ship Channel Cay, which was even more beautiful. We spent the later morning/afternoon hand feeding stingrays and playing with them, then the staff wrangled sharks right in front of you!! Snorkeling came next and it was so amazing! After snorkeling, we were fed a scrumptious lunch. Mind you, there's an open bar the WHOLE time. Then, after lunch, they do a demonstration on how to make a Bahamian Conch Salad. That was delicious too. Jason was extraordinary and actually took a private video for me on my phone of sharks feeding in a school of fish. He also took my camera on our snorkeling outing and got some amazing pictures.I was hesitant because of the price but I will DEFINITELY do this again if I'm in Nassau. It was worth EVERY penny!
Very nice! Enjoyed it very much!

Diving up close and personal with sharks has been at the top of my husband's bucket list for years and so we were VERY excited to find this tour and give it a try! I can happily say that we were thrilled with the experience! Both the initial dive, where we swam around a wreck and checked out some of the sharks we would later see even closer during the feeding, and the shark arena dive were great. Nothing can prepare you for how awe inspiring the shark arena is though! Talk about a surreal experience. Shark loving divers NEED to do this activity!!

This was a great excursion! Took my teenage son and his girlfriend. We all had a great time. There was plenty to see and we never felt rushed. Plenty of time was given at each of the stops. The team was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was plenty on space on the boat, and it never felt crowded. The staff made sure we had everything we need, and the equipment was in good condition. Out of the three stops, each was better than the last. Swimming with the sharks was a really cool experience! If you have any tendency towards motion sickness, make sure to take some meds beforehand. Even on a calm day and a smooth boat ride, one of us got a little nauseous. Also, spend the extra money on the fish food. It is great to see all the different types of fish come up to you! Really was a great experience and well worth the money. I'd consider doing it again if ever in Nassau.
My husband and I had a great time at the 2 reefs we were taken to. We saw lots of fish and the reef was beautiful. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They had easy access into and out of the water. We also enjoyed the snorkel time with the sharks. It was so much fun. We can't wait to go back to the Nassau and go to the same place and snorkel again. We are both 60 and we had a great time.
Outstanding!--they were waiting for us outside the cruise ship terminal, very nice people, explained things very clearly. Went to three dive spots, I stayed on top of the water since it was my first time snorkeling
Full of jokes when were about to swim with the sharks.
I enjoyed the tour. Pick-up was very easy. You meet by the water fountain right outside of the cruise port market and the pink bus will pick you up at 8:15am. After about a half-hour drive you will be at Stuart Cove's headquarters on the southern end of New Providence, where you will complete registration and get your snorkeling equipment. They charge 3.00 tax for a new mouthpiece, which we thought was worth it.
Our first stop was at Hollywood Bowl where the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where Jack Sparrow was marooned on a deserted island was filmed. There were plenty of colorful fish and coral reefs to see. We had about 25-30 minutes at this stop.
Our second stop was called Little Elvis and was a larger coral reef ecosystem with similar fish. Other guests say they saw an eel in a cove in the coral but we did not. We had about 30 minutes here as well.
Our final stop was at Shark Arena. We were instructed to not make any sudden movements or leg or arm flailing. We also had to hold onto a rope connected to the boat. The sharks were about 10 feet below us but a few swam closer to us. Once back on the ship, they brought the chum back up to the surface and we were able to get plenty of good shots of the sharks fighting over their dinner.
The bus trip back took very long as the bus was loaded with guests from all different hotels so there were many stops.
The only negative to this tour that we experienced were the lack of actual communication from the ship crew. I would have liked more information about the places we were visiting and the fish we were seeing similar to what we have experienced on other snorkeling trips. There was also one of the ship's crew that really bummed us out talking about how poor the people in Nassau were, how bad crime was and how many women have been murdered this year alone. It seemed as though he was trying overly hard to elicit sympathy to get a few tips.
Overall, I would recommend this tour.
