Taste of Nassau Cuisine and Walking Tour
March 29, 2023
Very well organized. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and well versed in the history of Nassau and the cuisine being sampled. The guide had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining throughout the tour. All the food, drinks and treats were delicious. The walking aspect of the tour was relatively easy and not at all tiring. I highly recommend this tour.

HIGHLY recommend! Great food, history and culture
March 06, 2023
Amazing! We had 6 stops, plus stopped at a famous cigar shop. Tour was supposed to last 2 hours - actually went about 3.5, but we were ok with that - it was very engaging. Our tour guide (Bre) was FANTASTIC, kept the pace going, gave us lots of information around the culture & the history of the island & the people, & had a wonderful personality. Food stops were amazing - definitely got a taste of the island. I was most grateful for how she accommodated my food allergy - I was given substitutions & never felt 'cheated' in the experience. Note, a few of these are around alcohol (winery, specialty drink). We were on our feet a lot, but did have times to sit, so heed warning if you have accessibility issues - it's not for anyone unable to walk/stand for long periods of time, or requiring assistance (hills/stairs). PRO TIP: arrive to Rawson Square early & patron the kiosk shops - great finds, & you are supporting local. And if you go on the tour, be sure to tell Bre, "Vell Mudda Sic!"

The Best Learning Excursion
January 12, 2023
This was such a great tour!!!! If you want to learn the history, culture and taste some of the most delicious food that Nassau offers then I would definitely do this excursion. Our tour guide was great and provided so much rich history of the island. I recommend this excursion if you want to learn about the people and the rich history of Nassau.

Great Guide, wonderful food, fun morning.

The meeting place was easy to get to from my ship. My guide was right on time and easy to recognize. The four other people on my tour we’re staying on the island and seem to enjoy the tour as much as I did. Matt gave us great history of all the places we visited as well as how their food related to the area. The tour was well organized we were not rushed but we’re never in a situation where we had to wait long. Any special needs were accommodated at every stop. None of these were places I was likely to have tried on my own and the whole tour seemed to flow together very well with moderate walking between each stop. I highly recommend this tour. tour.

Walking Good Your Nassau

This tour was amazing. It was a drizzling day but we still went and the guide gave us all ponchos. He was very informative of the culture, the history, the food, and even recipes. You could tell he was know in the community as the merchant shop employees all chatted with him and the rest of us. There is some uphill part of the walk but it isn't bad at all. I highly recommend this tour.

This is a great combination of a walking tour, combined with some really awesome Bahamian food. Our guide was great, and gave us a very interesting history of the flavors of the Bahamas, and how they evolved with the various crops, wildlife and seafood on and off the islands. Be prepared to do some walking uphill, though, and some steps, but highly recommended if you're able!

A great Stroll with Captain Ron
September 27, 2022
This is a great way to see Nassau, and Capt. Ron is an excellent guide, with facts and stories about both the food / restaurants and the Bahamas. This is a great mix of pace, snacking and seeing Nassau. Capt. Ron will also help you plan the rest of your time in Nassau! This was a great time and one of the best excursions we have done

Walking/Food Tour Nassau
March 05, 2022
I have never booked from this company before, but they were reasonably priced and had favorable reviews. They were prompt in sending me my e-ticket and other information. Our tour guide was Lisa, and she was AMAZING. 10/10. If I ever get to come back to Nassau, I would do this same tour over again just because she had the best personality. Lisa kept saying “it’s a vibe”, and my boyfriend and I loved it so much, we have been saying it since we’ve been home (ha ha). I learned a lot about the cuisine in the Bahamas, and she made it so much fun! The walking portion was not bad at all (only had to go up a slight hill), and we got to take a lot of pictures while walking. We tried so many neat foods and cocktails, and it was definitely worth the money. We had a small group of only 6 people, so it made it more intimate. You will not regret booking this tour!

This was one of the best excursions we have taken. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating to all. We loved that there were 6 different eating establishments. We were warmly welcomed by each of the owners and served with care. We enjoyed learning about the food and culture surrounding the various Bahamian delicacies and then enjoying them at both inside and outdoor tables. My family and I highly recommend this excursion. Thank you!

Captain Ron is the best!
August 26, 2021
My boyfriend and I took this tour on Aug 25th,2021. Captain Ron is the best asset of this tour. So knowledgeable about Bahamas history. From his personal story to the history of the island, the different restaurants and buildings downtown Nassau. The food was delicious too. We learned a lot about Nassau and the Bahamas. Captain Ron made it fun, interesting and made us forget it rained a few times during the tour. Highly recommend this tour if only for Captian Ron! Five stars and more! Thank your Captain Ron!

We really enjoyed our walking tour and cruise. I learned a lot about the history of the Bahamas and our guide was personable. Everything we tasted was delicious. I wish we had a little more time at the chocolate shop so I could have had time to buy some treats to bring back with me. I would absolutely recommend this tour.

Like many others who had been in Nassau before, we decided not to go in our own, but see something special, so we signed up for this Taste of Nassau , etc. The guide self-proclaimed as "Capt Ron" (Ronelle) showed us around as we experienced various conch tastes...n got up n down local hills n resorts esp the Graycliff n the Presidential Residence.. .A most enjoyable n worthwhile experience!

Captain Ron our tour guide did a wonderful job of providing history and stops at restaurants to sample the food in Nassau. I would highly recommend to members. One note: Not a tour for limited mobility – due to the stairs involved and the uneven streets of Nassau itself.

This is a walking tour and i enjoy it. the tour guide let us try all popular place and foods in Bahamas. The tour guide actually go inside to get a piece of fresh rum cake for us to try. I love it, the taste is so good, juicy and warm. The only thing you gotta to watch for time. I gotta come back the ship around 3:30, but the tour end at 3:30. It is a good experience.

Food tour was great. Our guide, captain Ron, was extremely knowledgeable of the island. He was energetic and passionate and shared a lot of info during the tour. We saw many different landmarks and hit some popular local spots, some with food, some with drinks. The first stop is the only full meal though so don’t come expecting to be stuffed. It’s a walking tour so pack lightly and be ready to stop and go. Great way to get a feel for the island, get a few drinks and some local food in, and learn some history
Delightful small-group tour
March 16, 2018
Great way to experience Nassau and avoid the crowds. Our guide, Joy, took us to 4-5 food locations, giving us background about the Bahamas and the buildings along the way. Great sampling of local food and culture, without tourist crowds. Our kids (10 and 7) enjoyed it as much as we did.

Really nice tour. The guide was professional, pleasant and informative. Enjoyed the tasty foods and beverages provided. The walking occasionally involved a few stairs and brief inclines, but was not too difficult to navigate even though at the time I used an assistive device. The history and the area toured was fairly interesting.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. It was nice to see the local places and try the food. Our guide was very personable. The only suggestion I have is to have water available. He said that he would have a lot for us, but that didn't seem to be the case.

We were very pleased with the Taste of Nassau Cuisine and Walking Tour! The variety of food that we sampled gave us a broad look at the local specialties, and a peek into the traditional Nassau family mealtime. The historical information that was shared along the way was entertaining and worth the tour itself. Our group was small (7) which gave us the opportunity to get to know the 2 couples a little over the 3 hours we spent together. Great pace, easy walking, excellent tour guide! Highly Recommend! Several folks on the ship expressed disappointment that they had not taken this tour too!

After we met our young college age guide, she proceeded to take us on a tasting tour which included a Bahamian lunch, chocolates, a Greek salad, and several other goodies, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. Walking the hills and streets a little difficult for us older folks, but we managed. We also saw some typical buildings including a small hotel and the Government building and gardens.

Two well educated young ladies led the tour, offering cultural insights, architectural, and historical information throughout the tour. Whenever they noticed a participant taking an interest in a tree or building, they offered information without making it feel like a lecture. At the beginning of the tour, they asked it anyone had food allergies. Someone in our group did, so the ladies stepped away momentarily to coordinate alternate dishes at the upcoming food stops. I highly recommend this excursion to anyone, even if you have been to the island before!

BEST TOUR & WELL ORGANIZED
April 28, 2016
My husband and I were a little skeptical about signing up for this tour, but decided to go ahead and do it anyways and I must say, that it was the BEST thing we could've done! Our guide, that unfortunately was leaving the company that same weekend, was AWESOME!!! He was so very knowledgeable and very polite. There was a lot of walking but we didn't really notice it because our guide was telling us the history of the many things that we passed along the way, as well as, about the island itself. The locations that we visited were awesome as well. What we thought were going to be just small tastings of food, turned out to be way more because the food portions were way bigger. By the time we reached our final destination, we were full, so that tells you that the portions are not small. I'm so glad that we decided to do this tour instead of any other or just shopping and we would do it again if we were to ever go back.....well worth the money.

Vacations to Go Agent Review: We did this tour last week. Murray is a great guide and very knowledgeable about Bahamas' history, customs and culture. The tour included plenty of history notes that are not commonly known outside of the states. The local cuisine and history were fantastic, and I would highly recommend this tour to my customers. You should plan to arrive early to fully appreciate the church, while the history and importance of the church is discussed as part of the tour, no interior tour is done.
