My boyfriend and I had a very nice time on this tour. Our tour guide was great, he was very informative and knowledgeable about the island. The two food stops he took us to were delicious and authentic Bahamian food which is what we love! The other three stops were a chocolate factory, a tea shop and a daiquiri stop. My boyfriend and I were a little disappointed in those stops, we had the impression this tour was more of a food tasting tour. Besides that we had a very nice time.

This has to be one of the best tours we've ever taken, seriously! Arthur was amazing. The food was very well chosen and incredibly delicious and something we would not have ordered, but were very happy with their choices. And learning about some of the island history was a bonus. We couldn't of been happier!

We were not picked up on the booked day. After two calls and a waiting time of 45 minutes, we were informed that there were problems with the bus and that we could therefore get the tour two days later as a private tour with pickup directly from our overnight accommodation. We accepted this offer. The tour guide was extremely friendly, helpful and told us not only everything about the food, but also about the food in a detailed and amusing way. We would have liked to be able to try the chocolate as a dessert and not right before lunch, which in my opinion didn't fit. The TastyTea Factory was more of a sales show, we were able to try 1 mini mug of tea ... but overall the fish dishes were exceptionally good.
