We became aware of how the Bahamians lived on Grand Bahama and how they dealt with disasters such as Hurricane Matthew in October 2016. The people were cheerful, neighborly and welcoming to us. Our guide Donald was very informative in describing local culture and explaining how Bahamians differed from other island cultures, the talk and video clips of the Bahamian Junkanoo was particularly good. Princess Diana's meal was first rate each of us enjoyed it very much and I had seconds. The tour concluded with a drive through the city of Freeport with ample explanations and descriptions of the neighborhoods and businesses. Tourists interested in the lifestyles of Bahamians will be interested in this experience.
This was an insightful tour of Bahamian culture: music, tradition, life. Donald, our guide, was informed and invested in sharing his knowledge with us. We enjoyed a meal at Buddy's, a local hang-out on the beach. The food was delicious, and the cook worked hard to please. Then, a short drive away, Grum Ma's provided hands-on and audio-visuals of the Bahamian people, the evolution of Bahamian music, and the tradition of Junkanoo, similar to the Mardi Gras Indian tradition with roots connected to Carribean and African origins. I recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the real Grand Bahama Island.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. This was a real taste of the Bahamas - not what you see from a cruise ship or resort. I learned more about the islands and their people in this short excursion than I did all week and got treated to the best home cooked Bahamian meal prepared by Chef Princess Diana. If you're looking for fancy this is not it - but if you're looking to see what lays behind the tourist spots - it's a must go.
