Great tour!
     5/5 Visited in July 2016

Our guide did a wonderful job of explaining all of the cultural and historical aspects of the tour. We were also on a shortened day and she made sure we were back to our ship right on time. The food tasting was wonderful. There was a nice variety and I left full. I've been to Nassau four times and this was my favorite excursion.

Good food and so much information!
     4/5 Visited in April 2016

We really enjoyed our food tasting, and I was glad to learn at the outset that all of the merchants we visited were paid for our meals. We had a sampling of a "traditional" Nassau meal, a citrus drink, a beer, two pieces of chocolate, a cup of conch chowder, a small Greek salad, and a slice of rum cake. My only complaint is that our guide knew SO much and shared SO much information that he hardly took a breath or a break! I wouldn't have minded the tour being shorter (we actually spent very little time eating) and less in-depth. Perhaps this tour would be better labeled as a "Cultural Walking Excursion with Food Tasting".

WOW, get out of the tee shirt zone and see Nassau
     5/5 Visited in October 2015

First let me say there are plenty of stairs, wear very comfortable shoes - real shoes not flip flops (you'll regret that). Nick was our guide and no doubt about the manner in which Shore Excursioner obtains guides, they are simply the best. This tour gets out of the tee shirt zone and into Nassau. Bahama Cooking cafe run by Mrs. Wallace and her family is too amazing for words. We'll go back there. Each stop took the group through the town on an easy walk. The "over the hill" vantage point was an eye opener of the town and history. I'm not sure if more stops will be added or if stops will be discarded but not to worry the selections are first rate, fresh, local, safe and well worth the walk or stair climbing. Each stop was introduced by Nick in a concise manner and then the owner or staff was available for questions. This is Shore Excursioneer at its best. Not to be missed.
