The staircase is a must. You will must likely encounter a guide and need to provide the requested tip. It is mind boggling what was required of the slave to build the corridor. The steps were carved to honor the Queen when she granted freedom to the slaves. The corridor has a very rainforest - like feel as you will... More

Went here on self walking tour... It was like being in a rainforest in the middle of a city. The walk to here was a little challenging dodging the traffic and lack of sidewalk in spots.. Sad to say there is a bit of trash in the area even though there was someone sweeping the area in front of staircase.... More

Thanks to Marco who took my family and I to visit the Queen's staircase and gave us quite a bit of information about it. Thanks again Marco you taught us a lot about the Bahamas.

We really enjoyed the visit to the queens staircase. When you get to the top there is a guide who will tell you the history for a couple of dollars he is well worth it. There is a cafe at top you can get a drink which you will need after climbing those steps. Moving on to the fort at... More

Am all about soaking up the history and culture of our destination. The Queen's Staircase did not disappoint. We had our own private guide for the day. We visited many historical sites on the island and also got to go the the rum cake factory to see the workers actually making the cakes. Needless to say, we stocked up taking... More

This visit was quite simply breathtaking! The steps all 64 of them were enchanting...and the chance to get a little exercise in😉. The children loved the views and backdrop for some great photos/selfies. Definitely a must visit.

Very interesting historical spot. Walk down is easy. Have your driver meet you at the bottom. Near the fort

This was one of several stops on our tour. If you have issues with steps (my husband has knee issues and could not venture down the steps) I would not suggest walking to the bottom. But you can still see from the top what makes this a special place and worth the stop. There are locals who will give you... More
