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.

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

We had an amazing day at Pearl Island… will definitely go again..

We loved it all! Parasailing, jet skiing, and banana boating.

It was as described. Food was decent and plentiful
