I can’t say enough about how wonderful this experience was! Our tour guide Hida went above and beyond from immediate communication to touring the island’s most beautiful restaurants, bars, and oh those turtles and reefs!! We loved Paradise Cove (shout out to Barry and his team). Don’t hesitate to book — you will not me disappointed. We have new Bahamian friends and will be back to visit!
