Our guide, Will, was very knowledgeable not only about food but about the history and culture of the island. A great way to spend a few hours and get some insight into the culture beyond the classic tourism locations. Highly recommend taking this tour while in Nassau.

Bey!!! This tour was amazing!!! Our tour guide, Llsa, was very informative while being fun. She had us all belly pain laughing 😂. If she’s your guide your tour is about to be lit!!! The food was amazing (those fritters and that soup 🤤), the historical background of Bahamas is beautiful and lets not forget about the view! As a Jamaican, I was shocked to see how similar the islands are but different. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip (my sister surprise birthday trip). LISA!!!! Jackie and myself thank you for welcoming us and just leaving us with such a wonderful experience. Pray y’all get Lisa guys!!!!! After this tour nobody couldn’t tell me I’m not half Bahamian especially with my new slangs!!! A beautiful island with people equally beautiful and welcoming!
