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.
Tour was very informative and Lindsey our tour guide was fantastic. She really knew the history of Nassau.
Would highly recommend this tour
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 a amazing as was all of the places she took us to and schooled us about. This is a must do for anyone with 2 1/2 free hours at Nassau!!!
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.
This was an amazing and beautiful tour. The tour guide was very professional, knowledgeable and amazing. It was great to hear about the history of the Bahamas, the rum, association with the pirates, the government as well as partake in the various rum tasting. I was very pleased with the tour and would recommend this tour to friends. Job well done
Lindsay, out tour guide was great. She new the history and all the little points. This was a great tour.
Excellent! We know more about pirates and rum than all our friends!
Lindsey led us through the fascinating history of the island. She was knowledgeable, personable and funny. While I will never be a fan of bibbin' rum, I enjoyed the experience. The mixed drinks and food were great. We remained at the Pirate's Pub at the completion of the tour for more Bahama Mamas and lunch. Highly recommend the cracked conch and jerk kabobs!
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! The rum/drinks were delicious and our tour guide Jason was awesome! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The stops on the tour were great! We would definitely recommend this tour while in Nassau!
Lindsay did a great job in giving us an appreciation for pirates of the region, the history of the City of Nassau, plus lessons in how to taste rum and an appreciation for the rum making process overall. She was like a walking Wikipedia - teaching us things we'd never have known about Nassau and Graycliff otherwise. Well worth it - Thanks!
Excellent walking tour of Nassau. If you are in to history, culture and rum -- this is the tour for you. Jason was fun, very knowledgeable and made the experience worthwhile. 2.5 hour tour. Walking was at a lesiurely pace, no rushing, no big hills to climb. 3 different bar/distillery stops to sample shots and mixed drinks of rum. Greycliff was also on the tour An amazing hotel / chocolate factory. Samples of the chocolate included. A much better tour than hoping on a bus tour of Nassua.
This is one tour that you cannot miss its a must. It was a wonderful experience the tour guide Jason was the best and very informative of all places on the Island. Even walked us to the Fish Fry for lunch where he highly recommended a restaurant he was wonderful throughout the whole tour. I would give this a 5 plus plus as a rating a must do and try and get Jason.
This is a great tour! It had a bit of everything - history, pirates, art, local food, rum and more rum. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves, thanks to Jason and #39;s storytelling and humor.
Very informative and entertaining and the rum was good too! Jason was the best. He knows the island's history very well and made our trip to Nassau even more enjoyable. Thank you Jason!
I would give this tour 6 stars!! I may be a bit bias in my experience because in my tour it was only myself and my best friend. With that said, our tour guide Jason was absolutely amazing! He was very knowledgeable about the places we went to, about the alcohol/food we sampled and the history of the island. He was very personable and we were able to laugh and joke with him like we was a friend of ours. After the distillery he offered to walk us back to the starting point, but we went a different way and Jason was still telling us about what we saw even though he didn't have to. Graycliff was an absolute jewel to discover, one in which the next time I come to Nassau I will be going to. I have already recommended this tour to a friend who will be going to Nassau in January. The food and drinks were all very good! Thanks again Jason for the amazing tour!
What a great time! Our guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable, and kept us entertained with tales of pirates and the history of the islands. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an alternative to the traditional beach outings.
Fascinating tour with a terrific guide-Jason. I will definitely recommend this tour to everyone, the history lesson was amazing. Thanks again!
