Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

We did this tour again approximately a year later than we took the first tour. This is one of the best tours that I have been on. We were fortunate to have Berdy as our guide this time and she did an amazing job. We were allowed to go at our own pace at each of the stops and each stop was interesting and provided learning opportunities. The only suggest I have is to start the tour earlier to allow for the morning Flamingos at the zoo.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We have done dozens of tours while travelling and this tour was one of the best we have been on. Our guide was Randy and he did a fantastic job of showing us New Providence/Paradise Island and explaining the history and current status of various things. We were not rushed and was able to go on our speed which made the tour even better. Highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see and learn more about the wonderful islands of the Bahamas.
