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.
Alex was a knowledgeable guide with a wonderful sense of humor! The food was varied and pretty good.
I am going back in a few weeks and am considering taking the tour again!

I came across this tour on Viator when I was looking for a food tasting tour...it 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 worry...you 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.
Very nice tour. You get to experience a bit of the food and culture of the Bahamas. Our guides were great.
I enjoyed this tour very much. The food was excellent and Murray was a wonderful and very knowledgeable tour guide. We learned a lot of history of Nassau and ate delicious selections of Bahamian food.
Murray was a great guide. He was fun and very knowledgeable. The food choices were very good and offered a wide variety. Thank you for a good time!
Our guide was awesome, we thought it would be a large group but it was only 4 people counting us. Highly recommend
It was indeed a great pleasure to join this tour. The wonderful guide Nick who is highly evaluated this/other site leads one of the kind event. All other participants were so friendly and was able to spend unforgettable time. The food, restaurants, venue, etc., everything is more then excellent. truly appreciate it.
Murray was fantastic and knowledge not only about the food being offered but also the history of the Bahamas. A great trip.
A note: you do need to be prepared to walk about a mile and a half up and down hills just for the tour. If you walk to/from the port to the meeting spot, add on an additional mile to your expected walk. The starting point is about a half mile walk from the cruise pier.
Best way to eat your way around Nassau while getting a history lesson. Our tour guide Alex was charming and very knowledgable and the other group members were enjoyable company for the afternoon. No worries about ending the tour hungry - even my husband was full.
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.
Awesome Tour!!!! Very informative and enjoyable, and easy walk. We have started taking Food Walking tours 3-6 a year where ever we travel, and this was one of the best! You will not be dissappointed!
Great guide. Very informative. The food and desert samples were excellent and gave us a glimpse of life in Nassau and The Bahamas.
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.
Great walking tour of Nassau that included a taste of local dishes at number of local venues. Our guide Lexi was very knowledgeable about local history. I highly recommend this tour.
The tour was amazing. The food along the way was delicious and our guide, Lexi, was excellent. I also learned so much about the history of the Bahamas.
