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
  • Caramel truffle shot

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.

Perfect walking tour. A great way to experience some of the main landmarks in Nassau while learning about and tasting rum. Our tour guide was very informative and fun. The drinks were great.

The only negatives would be that it was difficult for us to find the initial meeting location. We became confused with another Pirate's bar in town. Would recommend giving the specific address of the location and its actual name on the voucher. Also, wish there was more food!

We enjoyed this tour and found it educational as well. Our guide was very informative and it was fun. My daughter is in her 20's and she and her boyfriend enjoyed it very much.

If you want to take a worthwhile tour of Nassau, this is COMPLETELY worth it. We started with one tour guide, but ended with another as our tour was so big 16 people, paired down to 8. Unlike van tours, you get to see everything when you walk around. Our tour guide was Orchid, and she was AWESOME. In addition to the local history, she provided little tidbits of advice for tourists. She also made sure that the tour provided quality samples of rum and chocolate. At the end of the tour, she even called us a taxi to get us back to our hotel. This is an awesome tour. I can't recommend it enough! BTW, drink all of your rum samples unless you are a lightweight. You can handle it.

Lindsey was an AMAZING tour guide. She had wonderful insight into the history of the island and the whole rum trade. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. If you get a chance, plan on returning to the chocolate shop at Graycliff. The candy is really delicious. One tip: bring a bottle of water with you if you get overheated easily... this is a serious walking tour in Bahamian heat/humidity.
