Just to be clear - I did not actually take the tour because I could not find the meeting spot!! I am an experienced traveller and think it speaks for itself. I am writing this review to help future bookers avoid this mistake! The indications for the meeting spot were extremely unclear:
1. When looking for a spot, I was assured by 3 locals that the Fountain at Senior Frogs MUST be the right meeting spot for the tour and is the only known Fountain
2. neither the "old ministry building" nor "Festival welcome center" are indicated on Google maps and noone you ask will know where they are!
Aside from lost money, I was EXTREMELY upset by missing the tour and started calling the support which was compelety useless. Noone called me back and noone helped in any way to ask the lady to pick me up where I was. I called until I ran out of money and was told to wait and remained there waiting for 1.5 hours for Big Momma to pick me up, which never happened.
I am sure the tour itself should be fine, but just please BEWARE that the meeting spot is hard to find and well .it is still a mystery to me where it was, even after I tried to find it later in the day.
Hello there Love. Thank you for your Comment. I totally understand your frustration. The water fountain, Ministry of Tourism building and Festival place are really easy to locate. They have been exactly where they are from I was a child all my Life. Once you're on Bay Street you really can't miss them.
Now here is where the problem came in which was unfortunate for you. I seen you. I was downtown early that day. There were "No Cruise Ships" in port. I clearly remember it. I was parked across the street approximately at 930am you walked by VIA Cafe with a back pack on your back. I rolled the window down on a little gray van and said Hello. You looked at me and continued walking not saying a word. I didn't know at the time it was you! And you didn't know it was me! However you looked lost.
Once the other passengers arrive I waited for you and you never came back. I went to the first stop and when I was about to leave my assistant called saying that you're trying to locate us. I was about to make an extra stop to just to come back and pick you up. That's why I told you wait. However the rain came down pouring and the Cleints I had was unable to get off the bus!. Once I got to the Fort the Police told me you were there also looking for us but we were not there as yet. It is never my intention to upset "No Client" day with misunderstandings. NEVER! I try my endeavor to go the extra mile and beyond. If you take the time to book with us. I take my time and take care of you. However this day was a dreadful day for me as the operator and you as the client. And I am sorry. Please contact my office directly and anytime your in the area again. You will receive 2 free bus tour passes. Once again All the best! Thank you!

Big Mama is everything and a bag of plantain chips--humorous, warm, well-informed, she has a definite love of Nassau that she wants to share with all of her "darlin's" on board. She drives the van, commentates, is quick with answers and fun tidbits about the island, and makes you feel at ease right from the beginning. I cannot recommend this fun trip enough--DO IT!

If you want a tour through some highlights of Nassau, Big Mamma’s is an excellent choice. Yes, there are stops at tourist shopping traps, but at seemingly lower prices. Even our teenage sons liked it!! Half day is good amount and Big Mamma makes it fun.

This was a great tour, lots of fun, relaxed, and actually quite full of information....about things usually not mentioned/shown in tourist bus trips - we went thru housing, prices of houses, schooling, the local economy, all interesting stuff, but in a fun way, not at all like being in school! Also saw highlights of the Nassau city, did tastings, etc. Had a little time to shop, and got great recommendations for eating and shopping once the tour was over. We were very pleased.

While I am sure the Tour is wonderful, our ship was delayed due to electrical issues and arrived at the port 3 hours late, so my husband and I missed the tour. Due to it being a non-refundable tour (this is noted on this site), if I ever decide to do book again, I will do it once we are there to ensure I don't lose money.
Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it. We are so sorry you couldn't attend the tour. We wish you the best and hope you choose to join us in the future. You won't regret the time that you would spend with us.
This tour was really fun and interesting. Gave a nice overview of the area since we were only there for 8 hours. The only negative was it started about 30 minutes late, but once we got going it was great. I would recommend it to others. Big Mama is animated and offers lots of information about Nassau for an initial introduction to the Bahamas.
Awww, that is great.❤
I'm glad everyone had a blast.
