Our group of 6 had a great time with Davis! He was very knowledgeable and took us to all the spots that were scheduled.
We would highly recommend this tour to get an overview of the island at an affordable price.
Tour was extremely reasonably, more so, than any of the Cruise tours. Boss Tyrone was completely accommodating and personable. The tour took participants to many of the best sights in Nassau and gave a brief description of each. It lasted 2.5 hours and was a delight!
I can not say enough about our highlights tour. Davis did our tour and he was wonderful, We saw so much and got some great pictures. Thank you so much for a wonderful Nassau Experience.
The guides couldn't have been more informative and helpful. I would recommend this tour for the pricing and attention given each guests. It was a great overview of Nassau. L and S from Delaware.
Great guide, inexpensive way to get a good overview of the island.

I booked the Nassau Shore Excursion through Viator. They were very efficient and my confirmation included the phone number of our tour guide. I was traveling on a cruise and right when we docked, I called Tyrone. He told me where to meet and even though there was a lot of congestion in the port, we found him by asking around. Everyone seemed to know him and told us where to walk. He was waiting there with his crew. My plans had changed we added an Atlantis Tour with the cruise line and the only time available conflicted with this first tour. We knew we had to cut our tour short, so Tyrone created a shorter tour version for us and asked Toya to guide us around. Toya drove through town where she gave us some history about the architecture and politics. We went to the Rum Cake Factory, which was packed with people, but she moved us to the front of the line because we were in a hurry. The rum cake was delicious! We went to a beach where there was a small fort and homemade rum punches! Then on to the larger fort and Queen Anne's Steps. It was quite impressive, steep limestone steps carved out of the mountain by slaves with just hand chisels. There was a lot of greenery and a waterfall there as well. There was also a small market were you could buy hats, bags, clothing, jewelry, etc. It reminded me of Aquinnah/Gay Head market on Martha's Vineyard. Toya drove us around and gave us enough time to do whatever we wanted, even though we were on a tight schedule. We did get back in time for our next tour!
Best 20 value! Very educational, scenic and professional and free bottle of water, ice cold! Tyrone Wilson, family business and owner, has put together a fun 3 hour tour. You will love it!
This was so worth the money. Craig our tour driver was RIDICULOUS.!!
We had such a good time doing this tour!!! I would recommend this tour for anyone going to Nassau.
A wonderful tour and well worth the money for this tour! Tour guide and bus driver were both excellent! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Great tour! Tyrone was helpful and worked with us when our cruise ship was late for our planned am tour. Went above and beyond to be sure we could still get our excursion in. Our guide, Mr Davis, was very informative and friendly. We learned a lot about Nassau. Highly recommemd!
Made purchase prior to arriving in Nassau. Cruising and arriving in Nassau, met with agent to gather group. Kevin was our van driver, and was excellent. Went to the fort, distillery, chocolate factory, rum cake bakery, Atlantis for a short visit then to a small souvenir shop. We made a side trip to see where Kevin lived, and how the people really are. Could have done without the cultural tour. Overall great value for the money, van small group tour and I would use them again.
45 minutes late starting and very unorganized start with the loading of groups. The actual tour bus driver and guide were very good. Worth the cost.
Our tour guide Kevin was really nice and informative, we enjoyed him. The chocolate factory tour could have been better. The sample was the size of a piece of corn, seriously, it was just a visit to their store. But the building was unique and worth seeing. The Rum factory people were very friendly and answered all our questions while they were working, what a lovely building as well ! The rest of the tour was very nice and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Nassau.
Very good excursion but they almost leave us because our cruise ship got to the port at the same time the excursion was leaving. We called when we bought the tickets and they said they were going to wait for us. We had to run at the terminal to get to the bus and they said they were going to leave at that moment because they only wait 10 minutes. They were glad to see us and we were glad we got there just right on time. The excursion was very good for the money and we were able to see what we wanted. The bus was confortable and with good AC. We recommend it if your cruise ship get there way before 9:30 AM so you have enough time to get to the bus without rushing .
You could add some directions on where to find the tour bus once on shore.
Other than that we enjoyed the tour and it was a bargain that we booked online.
50 to book on shore!
Good tour for the price. Didn't care for our particular tour guy- Davis- but the vehicle was clean, and we felt safe. No cold water as promised on the van. Locations of interest were ok but he had time to show us other things and chose to repeatedly show us the hood as he called it. The history was interesting and he knew that well. You could see quite a bit of let over damage for Oct hurricane. We would use Viator again as it was easy and well priced.
This tour was enjoyable, but there are some things to know before you go...first, there is not a ton to see in Nassau, so a short tour is plenty. There are a couple of interesting historical sights on the tour, but it seems the bulk of the tour focuses on opportunuties to spend money. First, the rum cake factory...they give you a sample, then you can buy. The chocolate factory...they give you a sample, then you can buy. The Rum distillery...they give ou a 10 minute talk on how it's made...and then you can buy. Atlantis...you can walk through the casino and the shops at the marina...maybe you'll love it and book there later. And the driver is happy to drop you off at a market where you can shop...the tour operator offers a discount.
That said, we did get a peak at the town, the Queens Staircase, and Fort Fincastle no worries, cuz if you didn't buy yet there are vendors at these sights too. One additional note - although advertised as 1 1/2 hours it took almost three.

Guide was good and the price reasonable. Time at Atlantis was too short. Rum cake shop was hood, but chocolate shop disallowed my guide dog. Distillery was just so-so and the rum tasting was a joke. Queens staircase was good. Not bad, but not fantastic either.
My wife and I just wanted to see Nassau, and this tour did a pretty good job of that. Unfortunately, Nassau is relatively unimpressive- many boarded-up buildings throughout the area we toured. The tour was delayed waiting for all the tourists to arrive. Thought we were getting a sample at the rum distillery, but that didn't happen. The walk around Atlantis was short but sweet- arrogant wealth everywhere. All in all, we saw what we wanted to see. It was worth the price.
This was a disappointment. The Queens staircase was cool, the fort was cool but you could not explore, they rushed you thru because too many tours too small of a fort. We spent more time driving through the ghetto. Rum distillery was good. Great rum but you couldn't buy any because they were sold out, at a rum distillery? They sent us to a liquor store and after 3 different locations we stopped for lunch and ordered 3 appetizers and two drinks and it cost us 80.00. Very Disappointed with Nassua.
A very comfortable tour of in an a/c and #39;d van. A good time and the tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable.
It was a good trip with a newer van . That is a good thing cause you do not want to be stuck somewhere.
Atlantis is only 30 mins. and the other sights are ok for a island. Worth the money and piece of mind.
We loved this excursion. It was a fun and competitive way to see the sights of the city. We had 6 of us that split into 3 groups of 2 in each group and us old people won the whole thing! It helps to have map reading skills that us old people have and not rely on Siri all the time : Our guide was delightful and gave very good instructions and a great prize at the end. I would definitely recommend.
Doing what: Nassau City Scavenger-Hunt Adventure
The Tyrone Wilson crew were easy to find and were waiting holding the placards. Served chilled water and took the guided tour in AC van as mentioned. Though it says 2.5 hrs. allow additional hour as a safe bet. 30 mins. at Atlantis is too short to cover it, addl. time would have been nice.
I like the Island Highlights Sightseeing Tour and recommend to others here. The full mini van is sort of brand new , it still has plastic covers on chair, driver is nice and knowledgeable, his name is Greg if I remember correctly. He stopped by and pointed some other points which are not listed on the introduction, like the house of current Prime minister of Nassau Bahamas, some local hospitals and government buildings.
We visited all points they mentioned on the website, we took 1pm tour, because of 2 person did not show up on time, we waited extra 15 mins.
They give us one drinking bottle for each people, which cost you 2 dollars if you buy at cruise :. that was nice and extra.
