What people are saying about Nassau

Charles was a great guide: very receptive to us as a group, answering all of our questions. He gave us history without overwhelming us. Our group was given all the time needed to see and do what we wanted. Charles went over the three hour tour time, as we needed to use the restroom & an ATM. He was very flexible and friendly. Great guide and well worth the fee! Loved it!

Charles was a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable, and we were able to see and learn about many interesting sites in Nassau. Would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour of Nassau with a little bit of everything - history, food, drink, etc. Charles was very knowledgeable and kept our interest throughout the tour.

It was a beautiful day, the guides were friendly and helpful and the pigs were so cute. It was nice that there were little ones we could hold.

We had a wonderful, informative, and entertaining experience on our boat tour. Fun time and good vibes.
