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.

  • 6 rum tastings
  • 2 rum cocktails
  • Bahamian conch and lobster fritters
  • Rum-infused white chocolate

We had the best time on our tour. Lots of rum - shots of rum, rum cake, rum ice cream, fritters. It was great and the walking was really just short walks from one spot to the next for another taste of rum.

We had the best time on this tour. Orchid was an amazing guide, very knowledgable and entertaining. She gave us a history of the Pirates of Nassau and how rum affected everything in Nassau, from economy to entertainment. I booked this tour primarily for my husband, who enjoys his rum. I am not a big drinker and Orchid made sure I received the virgin version of rum punch and pina colada - very much appreciated!! We enjoyed everything, from the chocolates to the conch fritters to rum cupcakes, and the drinks. Would definitely recommend this tour!
