The biking around Nassau was fun. We visited many sites that you would normally just pass by in a taxi or your own vehicle. You'll also get a chance to enjoy a little treat at the Bahama Barrels and Chocolate Shop (wine/chocolate). The bikes are single speed cruisers, so don't expect to change gears on the hills!

This family-friendly bike tour was a HIGHLIGHT of our trip to the Bahamas! Even our easily-bored 15 year-old said "worth it" at the end (we are a family of four, the kids are 12 and 15). From start to finish, we enjoyed the easy, breezy ride, interesting facts, cultural side trips (the Nassau art museum, cigar-rolling and rum plant and chocolate shop) and DELICIOUS lunch - an authentic fish fry with the most delicious conch fritters, salad and fried fish. The audio ear clip made was a cool way to hear the guide, speaking of which, Archie and Quinn were fantastic guides - patient, funny, smart and considerate. And it was the perfect amount of time, too - not too long, or too short. Do it!

Vincent was a fantastic guide! We're staying on the island for a week and wanted to get the best tour of the island at the start! Vincent's tour was filled with the history, knowledge, and experience we were searching for in our Nassau - New Providence Island tour and this checked every box! I can't imagine doing anything else! Seriously, worth every penny, my wife and I will be returning to several stops to have an extended experience with the absolutely beautiful people here in New Providence. Thank you Vincent and thank you Dilly Dally for an outstanding experience we will never forget! We know without you this could've been a completely different vacation! Stay awesome, we'll be back soon!
