An essential experience for understanding Nassau and the Bahamas
Margo_C, Dec 2021
The Queen's Staircase was spectacular, and the walking history/environmental lesson was very good. Our excellent guide True was warm and knowledgeable, answered our questions and took very good care of us. We came away having a better understanding of local culture and history.
Queens stair was awesome!...

Great Tour
Nicolette_I, Nov 2021
Loved our tour! She was so informative! It got warm so she provided us with water and made us feel comfortable asking questions.
Good and informative
James_L, Jul 2021
My tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We learned a lot from her. She was very good and has a lot of insight about the history of the buildings that we saw and about the Bahamas itself.

Very interesting and comprehensive guidance. Would reccomend to all newcomers to Nassau to take such a tour.
Guide was excellent.
Nancy_R, Mar 2019
Nicely paced walking tour of downtown Nassau and surrounding area. Tem was very knowledgeable about history of the Bahamas as well as very well versed in the flora, fauna and birds that we encountered during our walkabout. Good value!
Wonderful Afternoon Walk
LISA_A, Jan 2019
I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed this tour! I was looking for a walking tour (not a bus tour) and came across this one. True was a wonderful guide. She was friendly, knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She met us promptly at the meeting point in from of the McDonald's with water for both myself and my friend. My friend who had visited Nassau previously was amazed to find the Queen's Steps and the Fort. She had no idea those sites existed! I have been on many walking tours and this was one of the best!
I don't recommend.
Loan_H, Aug 2018
This tour was not very good. It was probably because the guide I had was very new. Although she was very nice and sweet, as a guide not all of her info was on point... I would say you can skip this one.
Very nice tour
Scott_T, Jul 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of historic Nassau. The sites were interesting and the walk was just the right length.
Fantastic Walking Tour with Frederick
Jennifer_V, Jun 2018
We had a wonderful walking tour with our guide, Frederick. He arrived promptly to meet us for our 9 AM tour, and he provided us with a tremendous amount of information about the Bahamas, its history, and bush medicine. We walked the streets of Nassau and down the Queen's Steps. The weather was quite warm, and he made sure that everyone in our group was hydrated and able to keep pace with the tour. We also had the opportunity to visit Tasty Teas and the John Watling Distillery before ending our tour back where we started. I would highly recommend this tour and Frederick to anyone looking to get a local's glimpse into life on Nassau. Thanks for making our visit special!
