Following pickup from your hotel in Nassau, board your climate-controlled tour vehicle and head downtown to begin your sightseeing. 
At Fort Fincastle, see the brick walls dating from 1793 and cannons that once protected the island from invaders. Descend the sixty-five limestone steps of the Queen's Staircase, built by 18th-century slaves, before continuing to Fort Charlotte. This largest of the island's 3 forts allows stunning views of Nassau Harbor from its pinnacle. 
Visit the Government House, the Parliament House and the courthouses while learning about the different governments that have controlled the Bahamas throughout history. See statues of the first Bahamian Governor-General, Sir Milo Butler and of Queen Victoria, who ruled the commonwealth for sixty-five years. 
At the Straw Market, peruse local handicrafts for souvenirs like jewelry, wood carvings and products made from dried palm fronds woven together. Head for Arawak Cay to hang out with some locals at the food stalls. The area is named for the island's original inhabitants, the Arawak Indians. Sample some traditional island food like conch fritters and conch salad (own expense). 
Your final stop on the tour is a local rum cake factory. Take a tour, taste a delectable sample and possibly purchase one to take home with you. The pastries are marinated in the local Don Lorenzo rum. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel after 2 hours. 
Opt to upgrade your tour with the Historical City Tour and Shopping option. In this version of the tour, spend 45 minutes sightseeing the island's key landmarks, then peruse the shops in downtown Nassau before heading back to your hotel.
