We had an awesome trip with Biggie I think that was the name of the tour guide/bus driver. We booked the day before and everything went smoothly! We were picked up in the port before 10am. The tour-guide was very knowledgeable of all aspects of life in Bahamas. We drove to the Caves of Lucayan National Park, beautiful!!!, then from there walked 5 min to the Gold Rock Beach. Best beach I've ever been!!!! Spectacular! After about 1.5 hour, we drove to another smaller also very beautiful beach that had a nice restaurant. After an hour of more swimming we headed back and were back to the port on time by 3pm. Amazing day, highly recommend this tour.
A thoroughly enjoyable escape from our island getaway. We were picked up from our hotel, Viva Fortuna, in a large tour bus and during the 20-25 minute drive to our first stop at Lucayan National Park, our very knowledgable guide delighted us with historical information and anecdotes about the Bahamas. The the first stop brought us to the caves, filled with dozens if not hundreds of napping bats.The best had yet to come, however, as the next stop was Gold Rock Beach. This trip was worth the price alone, an amazingly beautiful location where we stayed for over an hour. Finally, we stopped for lunch at a cute little restaurant on the beach. The food was wonderful try the conch! and the view is equally impressive. I would highly recommend this trip if you're looking to get away from your hotel for a few hours to try something different.
The National park is small and not much to see but Gold Rock beach is stunningly beautiful. It was definitely worth the trip. Our bus driver gave us a lot of historical information on the Bahamas and that was interesting too. Nice day!
Trevor, our guide was really nice and made sure we were set on the right bus back to the port. The caves were interesting but I thought we could snorkel-not so. The beach is very primordial and open. We are at a nice restaurant bit no conch salad. The cracked conch was very good though.
Trevor was a great tour guide! He was so nice, courteous and funny. He was very knowledgeable about everything the tour and beach had to offer. We definitely saw and learned about many new things. And the Gold Rock Beach literally across the road from Lucayan National Park is absolutely breathtaking. It was a wonderful experience I highly recommend this tour, you wont be disappointed.
A lot of fun. See cool things with a chill day on beautiful beaches!
Wow! This is a MUST DO! Gold Rock beach is soon beautiful! Biggie was a wonderful, pleasant, knowledgeable, tour guide. If you don't do anything else take this tour. My resort was not offering this so it is a good thing i found it on Viator.
Great way to spend a vacation day. We were picked up at our resort by a driver who was both friendly and knowledgeable. He gave information about all of the areas we drove through and also gave lots history about the area. Wear comfortable shoes since Ben's Cave at the national park has lots of steps. Bring a beach towel because you're going to want to get in the water at Gold Rock Beach, a rather secluded beach with water color so pretty it's hard to describe. Walking to the beach is its own adventure. Most people walked out to the sand bar and played there and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. After leaving this beach, the tour stops at another beach with a restaurant for lunch. The food is OK and it's another chance to enjoy some beach time.
The caves were alright but the beach was amazing! Stopped for lunch at a cute restaurant with the best banana bread!
The best part of our vacation - Highly recommended - The tour guide was prompt in picking us up from the hotel, and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Park. The weather was perfect at 78 degrees. The beach was clean! The ocean water was so blue, clear and cool! I was so sad when it was time to leave.
This is the best beach ever!! Clean,and its where pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. Very awesome, a must see!!
Amazing time on the beach! Some of the most spectacular beaches I've ever been to :)
This tour is awesome . We learned a lot .Biggie was an excellent instructor and driver. He told us about the island and the history of the island. Its worthy the $50. the beaches are clear blue . You visit 2 beaches and 2 caves . Beautiful sight.
Kevin, the tour guide and driver was fantastic. He was funny and interesting. We got a good over view of Freeport. The Lucayan park beach was the best. It was soooooo clear and white sand. The walk around the park was very relaxing. I would take this tour again and highly recommend that anyone who is out doorsy take this tour.
Very Educational Biggie was the best and the staff at Forbes H Charter knew their stuff. We left knowing a lot more about the island of Grand Bahama and the city of Freeport.
We called the previous day to confirm the 9am pickup and was told the pickup time would be 10am. The driver arrived shortly after 10. The East End excursion was very nice and informative.
Hotel pickup and drop off time is included in the tour time shown, so we didn't have much time at the beach. Our guide Trevor was good and the two beaches and park visited were worth the money.
I rated this a four, because the Ben's Cave wasn't very exciting. It was a cave. But, the beaches were just beautiful!! It was the beach that you read about, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water!! Just beautiful!! I even saw a wild stingray, it was right next to me!! I was too excited!!
The tour was very organized and our driver Biggie told us about the Bahamas and was interesting and informative. As soon as we step of the cruise, we were able to find the tour company and they lead us to our van. The van was pretty new and with AC. Biggie kept us in time to make sure we will return to port. The only thing I would have prefer to spend the time on the beach than looking at the caves. They were not interesting and only 2 of the them. The beach is beautiful, very shallow and gentle waves. It felt rushed just to have 1 hour there. After that, we stopped at a restaurant on the beach for another break. We ate and walk around the shore as well.
The tour itself was excellent, however, the Company forgot to pick us up. I had confirmed the day before with the Company agent who has a desk at the Grand Lucayan Hotel. I heard her call the main office and tell them the three of us were going on the tour. She told us to be at the front of the hotel 10 minutes before 10:00. We were there at 9:45. At 20 minutes to 11:00 the bell captain called there office and they sent another small bus to pick us up and we met the tour en route to the caves. The caves were good, but the beaches were spectacular!!
Awesome tour and the most amazing beach I have ever seen. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Only downsides were the bus was over an hour late to the hotel (not unusual for the Bahamas though) and none of the entrance fees to the park and lunch costs were not included in the tour but it appeared when you purchased the tickets that they were so be prepared to bring extra cash for sure. Loved it and can't wait to go back!
