What a great tour. Lexie was an amazing tour guide - she is intelligent, fun and informative. I can't imagine better. The food was the right amount - eat a small breakfast! I have a seafood allergy and expected to sit those stations out - not a problem for me. However, the two venues that had seafood had an alternative for me! A nice surprise. The walking was steady - there were lots of stairs but I think you should expect this on a walking tour. The venues were very friendly. I'd like more history and landmarks - but all-in-all it was lots to fit in to this 3-hour tour. I recommend it highly.

This is a must if visiting Nassau. This is a great opportunity to taste the different types of food and get familiar with the area. I recommend taking the water taxi if staying on Paradise Island and to take this tour early in your stay. Nick was just amazing. He was very personable and informative. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and your sense of adventure.

It was a great tour! The food was wonderful and our guide Nick was very informative and personable. He said he'd only been doing it a few weeks, but he really knew his stuff and did great. I know the rest of my group felt the same way. It was something different and a way to see a little more of Nassau than we would have likely done on our own. Thanks!

This was a great tour. We got to learn a lot of history of Nassau in addition to trying some local food. We did walk more than expected and a lot of it was uphill.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015
