What people are saying about Nassau

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!
