What You Can Expect

Nassau Rum and Food Walking Tour

Taste local Caribbean dishes!

In downtown Nassau, meet your friendly tour guide and head to your first stop, Pirate’s Pub & Grill on George Street. As you enjoy your first sample of rum, try to imagine the days — more than 300 years ago — when the unruly pirates of the Caribbean roamed these streets, inebriated on their ‘demon water.’

Continue walking through downtown Nassau to three more local establishments, where you’ll fill up on rum cocktails, savory snacks and sweet, boozy treats. Enjoy bites of Bahamian conch fritters — a local specialty — as well as rum-infused chocolate and a Bahamian dessert made from guava, a tropical fruit.

As you get to know the city’s rum and food scene with your guide, discover off-the-beaten-path sites and hear madcap stories about the island’s swashbuckling and rum-running history. Passing historical buildings, learn how they once played a role in the profiteering business as storage space for liquor about to be transported across the ocean.

Fittingly, your tour ends at John Watling’s Distillery, located on the island’s Buena Vista Estate. Learn about how rum is made here, from fermentation to aging in white-oak barrels, and hear about the mysteries surrounding 17th-century pirate John Watling, for whom the distillery is named.
