Lindsey was an AMAZING tour guide. She had wonderful insight into the history of the island and the whole rum trade. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. If you get a chance, plan on returning to the chocolate shop at Graycliff. The candy is really delicious. One tip: bring a bottle of water with you if you get overheated easily... this is a serious walking tour in Bahamian heat/humidity.
This was an amazing and beautiful tour. The tour guide was very professional, knowledgeable and amazing. It was great to hear about the history of the Bahamas, the rum, association with the pirates, the government as well as partake in the various rum tasting. I was very pleased with the tour and would recommend this tour to friends. Job well done
Lindsay, out tour guide was great. She new the history and all the little points. This was a great tour.
Excellent! We know more about pirates and rum than all our friends!
Lindsey led us through the fascinating history of the island. She was knowledgeable, personable and funny. While I will never be a fan of bibbin' rum, I enjoyed the experience. The mixed drinks and food were great. We remained at the Pirate's Pub at the completion of the tour for more Bahama Mamas and lunch. Highly recommend the cracked conch and jerk kabobs!
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! The rum/drinks were delicious and our tour guide Jason was awesome! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The stops on the tour were great! We would definitely recommend this tour while in Nassau!
Lindsay did a great job in giving us an appreciation for pirates of the region, the history of the City of Nassau, plus lessons in how to taste rum and an appreciation for the rum making process overall. She was like a walking Wikipedia - teaching us things we'd never have known about Nassau and Graycliff otherwise. Well worth it - Thanks!
Excellent walking tour of Nassau. If you are in to history, culture and rum -- this is the tour for you. Jason was fun, very knowledgeable and made the experience worthwhile. 2.5 hour tour. Walking was at a lesiurely pace, no rushing, no big hills to climb. 3 different bar/distillery stops to sample shots and mixed drinks of rum. Greycliff was also on the tour An amazing hotel / chocolate factory. Samples of the chocolate included. A much better tour than hoping on a bus tour of Nassua.
This is one tour that you cannot miss its a must. It was a wonderful experience the tour guide Jason was the best and very informative of all places on the Island. Even walked us to the Fish Fry for lunch where he highly recommended a restaurant he was wonderful throughout the whole tour. I would give this a 5 plus plus as a rating a must do and try and get Jason.
This is a great tour! It had a bit of everything - history, pirates, art, local food, rum and more rum. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves, thanks to Jason and #39;s storytelling and humor.
Very informative and entertaining and the rum was good too! Jason was the best. He knows the island's history very well and made our trip to Nassau even more enjoyable. Thank you Jason!
