You have to see the Zoo to experience it. My girlfriend and I went to the Zoo and had an amazing time. We arrived just in time for the "bird feeding." They welcome zoo guests into the birds cage and provided everyone with apple slices and the birds flocked to our hands. I even had one land on my shoulder.... More

We chose this excursion during our Disney cruise. The meeting time was 11:45am and we left the pier at 12:30pm. There was a mix up with the shuttles which delayed us even more. The city tour was ok which takes the first hour. Marvin, our driver was knowledgeable. The views from Fort Charlotte were amazing. The actual garden and zoo... More

The flamingo parade was interesting. Feeding the parrots slices of apple was more fun. The staff is very helpful and is right there with you. They are ready to take your picture and sell it to you, but are respectful if you want to take your own pictures and they don't bother you about that at all. The snack bar... More

Took this tour from Disney cruise. Wanted something other all in one beach. With that in mind this was enjoyable. You have to appreciate the culture and economic situation. The garden and zoo was appropriate for the area. It was enjoyable for two over sixty who appreciate going to different places other than boxed tourist attractions.

Get away from downtown Nassau and enjoy an hour or two of peace and quiet. Watch the Flamingo's and feed the Parrot's

This zoo is mid-size, clean, and not at all crowded! They had some animals I had not seen before, and I have visited many zoos! They had a cute show with their flamingos, who marched pretty well to commands. The gardens were also very lush, tropical, and we'll kept. There were plenty to of photo opportunities. They allow you to... More

We stopped at Nassau on our cruise excursion. The staff at Ardastra were friendly and had a sense of humour, they made us laugh when introducing animals. There was food available for us. We got to feed birds when we went into the bird enclosure. The flamingos wondered about in their little colonies and looked funny how if one went... More

I came to Ardastra Gardens during a cruise ship stopover when the excursion I had planned was suddenly cancelled. My friend and I wanted to see more of the city on the way, so even though our cruise handlers insisted it was too far to walk (don't believe them) we walked along the path that goes from the British Colonial...
