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.

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.

The best experience hands down and the owners where amazing they did everything they could to make our experience memorable and they did just that this was the best part of our visit!!

Captain Ron did a great job pointing out history and good food. Do it!

Ridge, the guide was excellent! Knowledgeable and friendly.
