As a traveler who adores having an opportunity to engage local culture, history, and food, I highly recommend this tour. This company is exceptionally professional, timely, friendly, knowledgeable, and informative.

Our tour guide was Sara, and although she has only lived in Nassau for 10 years, one would easily believe if not for her Italian accent that she had lived there her entire life, soaking in all of the rich cultural history. She was very prompt in beginning the tour right on time, and because the tours are limited to 12 people, everyone gets personal attention and all questions/conversations are welcomed. We walked quite a lot, which we really enjoyed, and had a wonderful mix of tasting full-sized authentic Bahamian dishes and drinks, along with interesting views and stories of historical sites and architecture.

I am unfortunately allergic to shellfish, but was just going to give my share of the conch fritters and conch bisque to my husband, but Sara called the restaurants and actually worked with them to provide an alternate for those two tastings lightly fried grouper strips at one place, and amazing fresh hummus and pita at another. I was so impressed, and thankful!

From the lovely and delicious appetizers and entrees, to the refreshing lime beverages and beer, to the gorgeous chocolates, and all of the beautiful architecture, it was truly a perfect afternoon.

The tour takes approximately 3 hours, and we were pleasantly full but not stuffed, had a whole new knowledge and appreciation for Nassau and its food and culture, and we have already recommended it to so many people - we will most likely take this same tour again when we visit in November!

Special kudos to the owner, Alanna, who went out of her way to make certain that we got on a tour at a time that worked with our cruise ship arrival/departure.

I came across this tour on Viator when I was looking for a food tasting would be my first time in Nassau, and I was eager to experience a new culture through their food what better introduction is there? My family and I took the tour on 6/4/16, and Alex and Tavette were our guides. We had such a great time! Our trip spanned about 1.5 miles, and we sampled Bahamian cuisine even Bahamian/Greek fusion!, gourmet chocolates, gelato, and rum cake...just to name a few stops! I really liked our stop at Genuinely Bahamian, a small shop which offered spices, condiments, and teas. The heaviest sampling happens at the beginning of the tour and you eat a little less at subsequent stops, but don't will be glad to walk between stops to happily digest it all! Alex and Tavette were friendly, charming, and knowledgeable. My family and I enjoyed the experience immensely, and I highly recommend this tour.

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Murray. His knowledge of local history, plants and foods was amazing. The food was delicious. Wish our cruise ship had been in port longer so we could go back and visit the delightful places he showed us.
