Awesome trip that we took the Bahamas! Went on the ATV Ride with this company and they were so great! They toured us around the city with us riding the ATV. We got to not only ride the city but stop local markets where we sampled and bought some of the rum cake. Totally worth all the money that was for the ATV! The only thing that was bad was that it started raining towards the end. Also I unfortunately forgot my phone on the ATV. One of the tour guides brought back to my hotel the very next day! I would still give it 10/10!

It was such a fun way to see Nassau. It had been a few years since I’d ridden an ATV but the staff did a great job of making everyone feel comfortable. Reeco was a great guide and went above and beyond to show us everything we wanted to see and augmented the tour with fun anecdotes. The included lunch was delicious. I highly recommend!
