Nassau Rum and Food Walking Tour

Rum tasting

Join up with your local guide at the prearranged meeting location in downtown Nassau. Then, walk together to your first stop, Smuggler's Beer Garden on George Street. Here, get your first taste of real Caribbean rum and cast your mind back some 300 years, when unruly pirates roamed the streets.
Continue to three more local spots, where you’ll fill up on rum cocktails along with conch and lobster fritters, rum-infused white chocolate and other regional delicacies.
Along the way, uncover some of the city’s lesser-known sights and hear stories about the island’s rum-running, swashbuckling past. See, too, the historical buildings that played a role in the profiteering business as storage for liquor about to be transported overseas. 
Make your final stop of the tour at John Watling’s Distillery. Walk around the Buena Vista Estate, where the distillery is situated, and learn about the production of rum as well as the 17th-century pirate for whom the distillery is named.

  • 6 rum tastings
  • 2 rum cocktails
  • Bahamian conch and lobster fritters

What a great way to spend a couple of afternoon hours! Our guide was entertaining and informative. The information about the pirates of the past was especially interesting. Our visits to local shops and distillery were a great way to see how rum is made and used in various foods. A fun time with a fun group!

Lots of rum with a nice walk around town. Joella was a great and funny guide who was easy to talk with. It was just hubby and I with our guide. Did I mention it all starts with FIVE shots of rum?

Our tour guide was AWESOME, only been doing the job for a month but you would never know it, extremely professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend. Everything was delicious...rum, conch fritters, rum cake, chocolate, drinks and ice cream. We even got to watch cigars being made!

Joelle was our tour guide and she was amazing - entertaining, incredibly knowledgable and perfect! We would highly recommend this tour. We booked it ourselves from our 7 week caribbean cruise and by far it was the highlight of our trip. Book it and ask for Joelle!

This tour was outstanding! We scheduled this on our own as an excursion from our cruise port. It worked out great as the meeting place was within walking distance of the port. Our guide was local and so knowledgeable providing us a lot of information not only rum but the local area.

This tour ended up being a very small group just two of us and another couple, and that was absolutely wonderful. Orchid was our tour guide, and she was the perfect combination of incredibly knowledgeable and yet still very laid-back about the entire experience. She had no issues with hanging out at certain tour stops longer than others if we wanted to see more, offered an abundance of interesting info, and made us feel completely comfortable in Nassau. In addition, the amount of food/drinks that you're provided on the tour is more than enough we started with a mini rum lesson including samples of every kind. Can't recommend this excursion enough!

The tour was great. Orchid was very knowledgeable and I was so absorbed in her conversation that I neglected to take photos. No shortage of rum to taste. Appreciated that we never felt pressure to buy any of the products we sampled.
