What You Can Expect

Freeport Bazaar and Brewery Tour

Freeport Bazaar and Brewery Tour

Make your way to the Freeport cruise ship port to meet your friendly local guide and begin your 3-hour outing. 

Start at Port Lucaya Marketplace, a bustling outdoor bazaar that has plenty of Grand Bahama souvenirs to choose from. Straw craftsmen and women weave colorful, durable baskets, bags and hats out of local straw. Peruse the abundant jewelry shops to pick up something for yourself or a special someone at home. 

Follow your nose to the Perfume Factory, located in a pink and white mansion near  the International Bazaar. The factory was founded by businessman Albert Whitsant in the 60s when he vacationed on Grand Bahama and found it a perfect place to start a perfume business. Try out any of the readymade blends or create your own signature scent to take home.

Stroll through the International Bazaar itself, a complex featuring Asian and European architecture and host to many interesting stalls. Head to the Bahamian Brewery to tour the beermaking facilities. Try the Strong Back stout, the High Rock lager and the Sands 'Truly Bahamian' beer. Choose your favorite and enjoy a few extra glasses on the house. Stop by the gift shop for some brewery gear or some bottles of your favorite to take with you.

Return to the cruise ship pier at the end of your 3-hour tour.

Please note: Although this tour originates at the cruise ship pier, it is open to anyone who wants to join. If you are a cruise ship passenger, it is your responsibility to get back to the pier before your shop sets sail.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2014

If you are looking for shopping this is not for you! We were able to stop at the perfumery but we had 10 minutes to shop, not enough time to create a fragrance! The bazaar closed after hurricane Sandy so no luck there. The brewery was delish! Lots of beer to sample and to try as much as you want.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2014

The perfume tour was OK, the beer brewery was better because of the unlimited beer offered. The stop over in the tourist area by the casino was good, gave us a chance to relax and see some of Freeport. The issues we had was the online purchase of the excursion did not indicate that the meeting time was Freeport EST time. We were on a Carnival Cruise and all of their excursions we based on ship time, which was CST since the ship is based in New Orleans. I called the number on the paper to verify the time and we had to run off the ship, skipping breakfast, because it was an hour earlier than we expected. When I arrived at the meeting place, the tour guide said that I needed to take the online paper over to the Orange Shirts to get tickets to board the bus. This was my first trip to Freeport and it was not organized well, I did eventually find the Orange Shirts, but they were with Carnival and they did not have tickets for the Viator excursion. I went back to where the bus was, that was ready to leave, and the person I talked to on the phone about the time was there and told the tour guide that she should have accepted the paper to allow us 4 to board the bus. FRUSTRATING!! There was only 4 seat left on the bus and teh AC was not working well. Now I have learned these things to verify before our next excursion.
