We had so much fun on this tour! We met lots of different people but the group was just the right size to be able to easily hear the guides speak and to feel the personal touch when you are in a smaller group. Both Mark and Will were so knowledgeable about the food and the history and the pop culture of Nassau - they made the tour very fun and interesting. I would highly recommend this tour at the start of your vacation so you can get a nice overview of the downtown area and taste some of the treasures found here.

We did the tour with Joy on our first day in Nassau. It was a perfect start to a great vacation. Joy showed us great architecture, taught us about the interesting history of the island, and introduced us to the food of the Bahamas. Joy was knowledgeable and fun. This tour gave us a chance to experience authentic Nassau culture not just the touristy parts of the island. Seeing Greycliffe was the highlight for us. We returned later in the week to have a glass of wine, tour the winery, and visit the art studios.

A fantastic tour which includes a bit of local history and sights within the downtown. The restaurants visited are authentic, portion sizes are decent and the story behind the food is excellent. Give this tour a try - easy walking distance from the cruise ship terminal.

This tour was awesome. Much more than I expected. Our tour guide, Murray, was beyond informative about all foods and Bahamian history. The food was delicious and filling. I would recommend it in a heartbeat thanks for a great afternoon


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

I would definitely recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Will, was AWESOME. I visited Nassau as part of a cruise with my daughters and really wasn't interested in visiting the ever-popular waterpark attraction in Nassau I won't name it, but you can probably guess what I mean. I read great reviews about this tour, but was a little worried beforehand about whether my daughters would resent me for taking a more cultural/historical approach to our visit...They LOVED the tour as well.

Will really made us feel like locals. He's very popular around town and it was great to see so many people stop to say hello. You can feel his love for his hometown and appreciation of the history I don't know if I could speak such details of my own hometown. The food was great. I don't know what else to say, except that if you haven't already, be sure to take this tour!
