We really enjoyed touring the fort, seeing and hearing about the history. Our tour was included in a larger tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the fort and patiently answered our questions. The views from the fort are great, too! It was very hot the day we toured but they offer water for $1 which is cheap for... More

While we did not enjoy being bombarded to buy things as soon as we stepped out of the taxi, we really enjoyed walking around Fort Charlotte. After a long day of pushy merchants and tour guides, it was nice to just be able to walk around and enjoy something ourselves without constantly forking over tips for minimal information. We spent...

We went all over the island as we are interested in the history as well as the beautiful beaches. We had seen Nelson's Dockyard and the ruins of the forts and this was just as interesting. Fort Charlotte has lovely views - it is interesting to think what it looked like in the 1700's and how the fort operated. It's... More

Fort Charlotte is best enjoyed for it's views of Nassau. Admission to the fort is only $1 per person. Other than some old cannons and a few displays in the tunneled out area under the fort, there's not a lot of historical interest. However, it's more than worth the $1 admission.

Paid $1 for each visitor, but the "tour guide" didn't know much history. Wouldn't waste your time unless you are a big history buff.

Great place to visit if you like history. If you visit in the hot months it get very stuffy in there. It costs a $1 to get in.

Sorry but this is about the . . Best and the . . . Only thing you are going to get in Nassau apart from The Victoria Steps and a . . . Water Tower ! All of which are clumped together here. It took us about half an hour to see the lot ! If you are hoping to... More

For $1 it was pretty good. I wish I would have had a bit of a tour but for a doller what more can you ask for? Great view!
