It was great! We really enjoyed the gold rocks beach!

Very Educational Biggie was the best and the staff at Forbes H Charter knew their stuff. We left knowing a lot more about the island of Grand Bahama and the city of Freeport.

We called the previous day to confirm the 9am pickup and was told the pickup time would be 10am. The driver arrived shortly after 10. The East End excursion was very nice and informative.

Awesome tour and the most amazing beach I have ever seen. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Only downsides were the bus was over an hour late to the hotel (not unusual for the Bahamas though) and none of the entrance fees to the park and lunch costs were not included in the tour but it appeared when you purchased the tickets that they were so be prepared to bring extra cash for sure. Loved it and can't wait to go back!

Overall the tour was enjoyable. However our paperwork said the tour started at 9am. We were there at 8:45am, and found out the tour left at 8:30am. They found another driver to get us caught up with another tour group. The caves were small and overall not that excited. However, Gold Rock beach was amazing and the Banana Bay restaurant had some great food (we had the conch fritters). The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Oh, and didn't realize that the entrance fee was included in our ticket price, so they asked us to pay it at the park, but after talking with them they let us go on without paying the extra money.

Caves were kind of disappointing in terms of size, but still nice to look at. Gold Rock Beach is everything that everyone says it is, and is located across the street from the National Park. The National Park only consisted of the two underground caves, however there is a nice walk through some beautiful landscape to the beach.

The tour guide "Biggie" was fantastic! Very knowledgable and funny too! The caves were small and not that interesting but the beach was gorgeous. I really enjoyed learning about the history of the island and the restaurant was great as well. Overall, the tour was interesting and I am glad that I booked it. My one regret is that i didn't bring my bathing suit. There is a bathroom to change your clothes at the park.

This tour was incredibly disappointing. The tour guide didn't appear to know very much about the area and would simply read off the plaques as we walked by them. I have heard that the beach area is really beautiful, however we were taken there at high tide when only a small strip of beach was visible. The water was also very murky; leaving the large group of tourists that were there with us to bob in the water while waiting for the tour to end.
The restaurant that we were taken to was good; however we arrived with a caravan of 3 buses so seating was difficult to find and the food took forever to arrive. Overall, this tour was a waste of time. We felt like we were on a factory conveyor belt; being moved from one overly crowded area to the next with the rest of the herd.

Not really much information given on this. We saw a couple of caves and went to a beautiful beach but there is not really much of a park or forest there at all. Not worth the money.
