Great trip. Our tour guide was knowledgable and fun. She was able to tell us the history of the island and also explain all the food we sampled during the tour. As it was lunch time we sampled a Bahamian meal at a local restaurant and had more than enough food for lunch. One of our best ever tours.

This tour was so full of good food and great history of the island. I loved this and would recommend as a first tour when you arrive to the Bahamas. Well worth it. Hit some great spots!

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.
