Learning with Lisa!!

Our guide Lisa was knowledgeable, witty and funny. She made everyone feel at ease immediately. The first meal of peas and rice, stewed chicken, macaroni and cheese and plantains was delicious and very well received by my family. We were hungry for authentic and this tour delivered on authenticity. Conch was a mainstay on the menu and my grown kids (18 and 22) enjoyed it tremendously. I’m not a fan but still left feeling satisfied and definitely smarter! Thank you Lisa!! We stopped at the first restaurant on our way back to the hotel, Bahamian Cookin’ is a gem!!

Overall, it was a nice tour... but there were some issues. Our tour guide, Princess was amazing; she was full of energy, knowledgeable, and engaging. However, there were changes made to the tour due to COVID restrictions that weren't transparent. For example, instead of going to the Tortuga Rum Cake location (a reason we chose this tour), we were served saran wrap covered cakes that had been sitting in a backpack all day. Additionally, we toured multiple places with gift shops... but weren't given any time to purchase anything.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hello Graham, Thank you for taking the time out to describe your experience. I am happy to know that overall you did enjoy your tour with Princess as your guide. To respond to your feedback, yes COVID has restricted downtown Nassau and our partner restaurants, many which have not yet reopened. We apologize that this was not more transparent. Regarding the gift shops, our goal is to show you where to find local goods, so that at the end of the tour you know where to go back to for souvenirs. Allowing time for shopping on the tour can vary from guest to guest, and it also interferes with our tastings that need to be served hot & fresh on the tour. Again, thank you for providing your feedback, and we hope you continue to take food tours in your future travels! Very best, Analise Andrews Executive Director
