Nick was amazing! The tour was amazing! I couldn't be happier that we signed up for this tour while in Nassau. We spent a good 6 days around town and did this tour early on in our trip. Nick set us up with a good feeling for the island, its people, history and of course the food! He was kind, funny and incredibly knowledgeable and everything he told us was either echoed by the rest of the locals we met, or had provided such a good base of knowledge that everything else we learned while visiting was made better, even the very hot Goat Pepper!

My wife and I were in Nassau for a day, we came with a cruise. We wanted to see the island and try the local food so this tour was perfect for us.
Frankly I have a little concern that we will be still hungry by the end of the tour but we were really full in the end. We tried lots of stuff appetizers, soup, entree, chocolate, ice cream, rum cake... all in different spots around the island.
Our guide Lexi was nice, she was entertaining and also knowledgeable about the island.
My only negative feedback is Rum Tasting is missing in the tour, I think they should add it to their tour as well, or may be they can have a Rum Tasting tour only since the Caribbean Rum is very famous.
Oveall, we really enjoyed the tour and recommend it to everyone who will visit Nassau.

This tour was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the food very much. Lexi was very pleasant and informative about both the food and local culture and history. One of the best shore excursions we have ever done.

As a traveler who adores having an opportunity to engage local culture, history, and food, I highly recommend this tour. This company is exceptionally professional, timely, friendly, knowledgeable, and informative.

Our tour guide was Sara, and although she has only lived in Nassau for 10 years, one would easily believe if not for her Italian accent that she had lived there her entire life, soaking in all of the rich cultural history. She was very prompt in beginning the tour right on time, and because the tours are limited to 12 people, everyone gets personal attention and all questions/conversations are welcomed. We walked quite a lot, which we really enjoyed, and had a wonderful mix of tasting full-sized authentic Bahamian dishes and drinks, along with interesting views and stories of historical sites and architecture.

I am unfortunately allergic to shellfish, but was just going to give my share of the conch fritters and conch bisque to my husband, but Sara called the restaurants and actually worked with them to provide an alternate for those two tastings lightly fried grouper strips at one place, and amazing fresh hummus and pita at another. I was so impressed, and thankful!

From the lovely and delicious appetizers and entrees, to the refreshing lime beverages and beer, to the gorgeous chocolates, and all of the beautiful architecture, it was truly a perfect afternoon.

The tour takes approximately 3 hours, and we were pleasantly full but not stuffed, had a whole new knowledge and appreciation for Nassau and its food and culture, and we have already recommended it to so many people - we will most likely take this same tour again when we visit in November!

Special kudos to the owner, Alanna, who went out of her way to make certain that we got on a tour at a time that worked with our cruise ship arrival/departure.

I came across this tour on Viator when I was looking for a food tasting would be my first time in Nassau, and I was eager to experience a new culture through their food what better introduction is there? My family and I took the tour on 6/4/16, and Alex and Tavette were our guides. We had such a great time! Our trip spanned about 1.5 miles, and we sampled Bahamian cuisine even Bahamian/Greek fusion!, gourmet chocolates, gelato, and rum cake...just to name a few stops! I really liked our stop at Genuinely Bahamian, a small shop which offered spices, condiments, and teas. The heaviest sampling happens at the beginning of the tour and you eat a little less at subsequent stops, but don't will be glad to walk between stops to happily digest it all! Alex and Tavette were friendly, charming, and knowledgeable. My family and I enjoyed the experience immensely, and I highly recommend this tour.
