What You Can Expect

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.
Tastings include (subject to change with notice):
  • 6 rum tastings
  • 2 rum cocktails
  • Bahamian conch and lobster fritters
  • Rum-infused white chocolate

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.

Orchid is amazing! That gal knows everything about everything!! She explained the history of the island, led us on an incredible walking tour we never would’ve found on our own and was an absolute pleasure to be with. We will do this tour again and recommend it to everyone coming to Nassau!!

Jessie was awesome!! We had a great time and learned a lot about Nassau. We loved the Ricardo rum and bout some at the duty free store, due to a snafu in Miami we had it confiscated, so we're still trying to figure out how to get some in the states. We highly recommend this tour!

I loved this trip. Jamie our tour guide was awesome, Hubby has a citrus allergy and Jamie was very accommodating to help get drink without orange or lime in it. I love learning about all the history and we are drinkers so starting with 6 shots and 1 mixed drink was right up our alley..lol...If ever back in Nassau I would actually take this tour again just for the food tastings Rum infused sweets..We had a great group of people with us and even had some time to talk and learn about them. Even if you are not a big drinker, Jamie informed us on the rum and different types, sampled Conche Fritters Yummy artwork, history, chocolates, pina coladas and some exercise..lol Thanks for a great day!!!

Orchid made this a great experience- the history she brought to the tour was fantastic as well as the background for the different types of rums and food. She was very patient as we made our way through the streets and did a great job showing some of the little hidden gems in the city.

Our tour guide Jamie was very knowledgeable and told the history in a fun and exciting way. While we were tasting rums, he did an excellent job describing them and telling us where they were from and what to expect. He was sure to ask us for feedback and our thoughts. The rum cupcakes and conch fritters were delicious and left me wanting more! I hated for the tour to end!
