If you like rum or just want to spend a great afternoon learning about the islands, this is for you. Even in Pouring rain we walked around town learning about the history of the islands and sampling food along the way. Lots of great stops, plenty of rum, and learned lots along the way. Get out of the normal tourist... More

Excellent tour of Nassau. Just the right amount of rum, chocolate and culture. Not forgetting the fried conch. We were very lucky and had both Orchid and Jaimie to guide us through the hidden gems of Nassau. This is a fantastic tour and I would totally recommend it for anyone visiting Nassau whether your passing through on a cruise ship... More

Me and a girlfriend visited Nassau on a rare, rainy day; but thankfully, our tour went on as scheduled. And what an awesome experience! Jaime was our guide and we had him all to ourselves. He was even thoughtful enough to bring ponchos to help us stay dry! His knowledge and enthusiasm for the area was evident and made for... More

My wife and I took the Rum Runners Passage tour on September 25th. At $60 per person my initial thought was that this investment must definitely be something special. It was. Orchid was our guide and we met her inside Pirates Bar and Grill which was very easy to find when we took a taxi from our hotel. We were... More

We had our guide, Orchid, all to ourselves for the 2:00 pm tour on September 5, 2014 and had an awesome time! This tour is 2 hours of a leisurely walk (though a bit of an incline in one spot and no sidewalks in some places, so that you had to be aware of traffic) in Nassau, starting at Pirate's... More

We did this tour when we were in Nasau for the day in April, 2014. Our tour took us through the heart of the city and we experienced the history and architecture, all while enjoying tasty rum treats! Our group of 4 were all glad that we chose this as a way to enjoy the day, and stayed after the... More

My husband and I were in Nassau on September 2nd! I had read about the Rum Runner Tour through Islandz Tours and I had to book it. We were in port that day for our cruise so it was perfect timing. Our tour began around 11:30am inside the Pirates Bar and Grill. It's right next to the Pirate museum. There... More

My 18 year old twins and I chose the Rum Runner Tour from Islandz Tours. They had a few others to choose from, also. The drinking age in the Bahamas is 18, so they got to enjoy the samples along with the history lesson. Our guide, Orchid, was very knowledgeable, and articulate. The tour started at the Pirate Grille right... More

We had an absolutely amazing time with Orchid on the Rum-Runners Passage tour. We hit the down season since it was just me, my 2 friends, and Orchid on the tour. I booked the tour because I read that there was "A lot of rum" ... they weren't kidding! But it was an awesome experience. Learned a lot about rum,... More
