What people are saying about Nassau

This was fabulous. Not just because of the Rum which was great. We went to a variety of places. But Shad took the tour part seriously and with his fabulous storytelling ability, made the history come alive. He's really a talented speaker. The only thing I did not like was going to a cigar store. I don't like smoke and did not like wasting time on the tour for that. I went on a culture tour later in the trip and felt that Shad did a better job and knew more than the other guy.

My family and I enjoyed this tour very much. It's a great opportunity to see the piglets and have a relaxed day for a reasonable rate (compared to all the offers on the islands). Enjoyed Pearl Island a lot, the food was really good and the piglets are the best. Really friendly staff all over and great captain aboard. Remember your sun screen and bring a mask if you wish to find conches on the sea bottom. Really reccomend it!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and respectful. I appreciated that the tour afforded a more authentic and diverse experience of Nassau and Bahamian cuisine than I had experienced in the past. I enjoyed patronizing Bahamian Cookin' and the Hillside House, especially, and learned a lot about the history of the city as well.

We had an amazing day at Pearl Island… will definitely go again..

It was as described. Food was decent and plentiful
