Great experience

Our tour guide Brenda Lee provided a wonderful overview of Nassau and the food. The food stops were great. It is a must for your first day to get an idea of restaurants and the food.
Awesome Experience
Charlotte_T, May 2023
Amazing tour of Downtown Nassau and pleasant tour guide. Delicious food, and great experience to see all of what Nassau has to offer and to experience traditional Bahamian culture through food!
Super Enjoyable Tour of Nassau
Henry_W, May 2023
The food was delicious, and the story of Nassau was terrific to learn. The whole tour was excellent.
Fun excursion for the day to learn more about the Bahamian culture and lifestyle!
Michelle_O, May 2023
The food was delicious! Lisa did a great job giving us a tour of the downtown Nassau highlights and sharing history of their culture, traditions and Bahamian lifestyle! We recommend you do this tour to see something other than the resorts, and here’s an inside tip…pay the additional $20 to get the bonus island drinks, they are fantastic!!!
Fun food tour
Michael_M, May 2023
We had a fantastic time on the food tour. The starting location was a quick walk from the cruise port. Lisa was fun, quick witted and an enjoyable guide. The food was great, the tour was well organized. They even had ponchos available for us when the weather took a turn. Would definitely recommend!!
Body and mind completely full!
Abby_H, May 2023
Lisa was such a great tour guide. She was funny and witty, very knowledgeable about every place we ate and just walking by! Highly recommend booking this for some great food and a great time!
We enjoyed the food and the culture education.

Enjoyed the food and culture!
Julianna_M, May 2023
We liked the tour. We enjoyed the food, culture, and meeting other tourists. It was a hot day, more water was needed. Thanks!
Awesome Tour!
vtabler, May 2023
The tour was awesome! We saw very picturesque places that we wouldn't have known about if not for the tour. Captain Ron was prompt, knowledgeable, and personable! The food was very good and we were stuffed by the end. Captain Ron even has wifi! That was totally unexpected but amazing because the cell service isn't great. We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this tour!
Won’t regret it !
Timothy_M, May 2023

frannyfoxy, May 2023
Traveling by cruise and had seen this advertised on the web had a great time with Lisa. She was an excellent guide food at first stop was delicious Fun day in Nassau
Birthday tour!
LaKeisha_T, May 2023
Wow, what an amazing tour! Celebrated my birthday with a group of friends, and we had an incredible time! Our tour guide, Deja, was super sweet and extremely knowledgeable. At each of the food stops, the people were hospitable and made us feel very welcomed. They went above and beyond to make my birthday even more special, especially the Hillside House. The food was really good, and viator was very accommodating when a member of our party was unable to make it (canceled within the 24 hours deadline) by crediting a gift voucher. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Nassau!
Thanks Captain Ron!
Steven_G, May 2023
Captain Ron made this an amazing trip! The stops were great, but his knowledge and sense of humor made it amazing!
Do this
Garrett_B, May 2023
Lisa!!!!!!!!! She was a fantastic guide. We enjoyed all the stops, all the food, the drinks, and learning about the rich history of the Bahamas. Lots of laughter to boot. Do this!
vivienneoka4, May 2023
Loved the food tour, definitely made me appreciate the island, it’s people, culture and history more! And all of that wouldn’t have been possible without our AMAZINGGGG and super knowledgeable tour guide LISA!!! EVERYONE NEEDS A LISA AS THEIR GUIDE! Because what’s better than the food, a good laugh. 🙌🏾
William_H, May 2023
My wife and I had an amazing time walking around and eating the different foods. It was great getting the recipes because the peas and rice were great and now I can try at home. We don’t drink alcohol and she made special arrangements for alcohol free drinks…which were spectacular. This is a definite do your!
Culture and food, all within ten minutes of port!
kari_f, May 2023
The guide was amazing, kind, and thoughtful. The locals were very hospitable. It was worth it just for the cultural aspect. If you’re an omnivore, make time for this! The rum punch and chocolates were my fav. If you’re not an omnivore, you should like seafood. I wish I’d known it wasn’t very vegan friendly or been offered a different price, perhaps, but not a huge deal. Most locations did try but the cuisine just isn’t very vegetarian friendly and I expect there isn’t much demand for comparable substitutes.
5 star!
Gionni_T, May 2023
Absolutely loved it ! Our tour guide Baha Bri was amazing. The food was great and the little history tour was an added bonus.
Getting to know the Bahamas

Walking tour in Nassau

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the island. It was nice to go off the beaten path and away from crowded areas.

LornaMarie_B, Apr 2023
Really well run tour. It is approximately 1.5miles in total taken very slowly with lots of information about the history of Nassau during the breaks. The food was excellent and LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Our guide) Is an incredible host who tells you about the food and restaurants during the meal.
We enjoyed our tour guide...
Linda_Z, Apr 2023
We enjoyed our tour guide and going to restaurants not on the main strip. We liked meeting new people who participated on tour.

Best Food Tour Ever Captain Ron
Sherry_N, Apr 2023
I would not want to take this tour with any one else than Captain Ron, hands down best Guide ever! We learned so much history of the Islands and the food was amazing. Captain Ron makes sure you’re safe and accounted for! Lovely choice of eating establishments, If you can only do one excursion do this one with Captain Ron, you will not regret it. Sherry and Ethan
Great Nassau food, Nassau history and Nassau culture.
Earl_R, Apr 2023
Wow, Brenda Lee! What a great guide. The tour was a small group of 12. Brenda Lee gets everyone involved and is very knowledgeable with the local area, local history and local cuisine. We are glad we did this tour to get a taste of the the local area from a Nassau native. Thank you Brenda Lee.
One of a kind!
Jeff_K, Apr 2023
we all loved this experience! Thank you Captain Ron for making it a great time! My entire family loved the food and getting the history and seeing the different places was icing on the cake. I would highly recommend.
