Julio was our guide and was awesome! I loved the history that was thrown into our tour, along with the rum, chocolates, and rum cake. This was a fun way to experience the town.

Totally enjoyed this Walking Tour our guide Julio was fun, friendly, informative, and AWESOME!! We couldn't have asked for a better Tour Guide. We got plenty of treats and rum along the way and a walk through Nassau observing many of the island sites. This tour exceeded out expectations and Julio made that happen. I would highly recommend this tour but be prepared to walk.

This was the best experience. Jamie our guide was fantastic. He engaged the group, gave detailed history of Nassau and the rum business and was very entertaining. Thank you for such a great time. We are going to St. Thomas in February and will be booking the rum tour there, just wish Jamie could be our guide in St. Thomas.

Our guide, Orchid, was great fun and very informative. It’s was a small group of six and we weren’t hurried at any point.There is a steep hill in one part of the walk so if you aren’t that mobile it may be an issue.

Our guide Orchid was amazing. A little history, a little rum, a little more history, a lot more rum.....
Seriously, this is a must on your next visit to Nassau! Thanks Orchid!

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Tour guide Jamie was awesome, learned about some history and heard some great stories. Tour is off the beaten path in a historical area of Nassau, still walking distance from boat. Cocktails and rum along with the food/treats were all delicious.

So much fun! Perfect 2 hours before we headed to Atlantis. I'm experienced with Viator tours and I'm recommending this one.

Fantastic tour. Jaime was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable and very funny. Food was fantastic. Our group had a great time. Also, our ship did not make it into port on the day it was supposed to and Jaime was able pleasantly make accommodations so that we could all go the next day. Definitely recommend.
