We had an excellent time on our tour. Our tour guide (I believe his name was MIke) was very engaging, funny, and did a good job explaining things to us. It was a decent amount of alcohol we were given, which was good, but be ready for it. We would recommend this for anyone who wants to have a fun time

Super tour with Mikey (guide) learning about rum, pirates, chocolate, distillery, Bahamian history, and current culture. One person in our group didn't really want to go, but afterwards said "I would definitely go on that tour again...thanks for suggesting it!"

Great tour for both a rum fan and others

Go up one flight of stairs at the Pirate Brewing company to begin the tour with a flight of 5 rums. And they make sense because Mikey does a great job of telling a story. The conch fritters are very good too. And you get Bahama Mama's, Naughty Jonny's, and Pina Coladas as you continue through the tour. You can carry your drinks as you walk through the downtown streets. And it's all very safe!

Rum Runner’s Tour was a lot of fun
November 07, 2019
This laid back walking tour of Nassau was a lot of fun. It started with our great tour guide Julio meeting us at the pirate brewery which is a very short walking distance from the cruise terminal. Lots of shots of rum and conch fritters were great. We then walked to see various sites including a historic hotel, a rum distillery, and a chocolate company. rest assured you will not be lacking in the rum department and the light food was all good. Julio the tour guide really did a great job and was very flexible and accommodating to really whatever we wanted to do. 5/5!
