What people are saying about Pompey Square

This was my second tour of the day with the shore 2 shore company. I have nothing but good things to say about this tour and my tour guide D. We went to some great places. The queens stairs. Where I got a very informative description of the stairs and the history behind them. We hit some excellent local spots that I never would have gone to without the knowledge of the guide. As an added bonus the fun loving first mate from my first tour was done for the day so he tagged along and added to the already great experience. Thank you D and Mally. I had a wonderful time and if I ever make it back I hope I can do some more tours with you guys!!!

D was an exceptional tour guide. We visited 5+ places and enjoyed many samples. I enjoyed sipping around a Nassau with the e-bike.

There were small snacks and drinks, but there was nothing for the children. Only alcoholic drinks…

Excellent guides. They went above and beyond to ensure the experience was memorable.

Tour was incredible for a cloudy day when water excursions got cancelled.
