Our Guide, ISHAD, was fabulous in all regards. He is smart, sharp, articulate, knowledgeable, and a pleasant person who answered all questions and was able to take pictures and tell stories to bring the historical locations alive! We met on time at a convenient location near the Colonial Hotel, and the 1.5 hour tour gave us not only an overview of the downtown city, but also an introduction to the years of Briitish, French, Spanish, and international influences which have affected the Bahammas. ISHAD made a difference, was happy to take pictures, and provided us ideas for dining and other activities. You can't go wrong with him!

Our tour guide "Shad" was a nice young man an a native of Nassau. I liked the tour but due to my knee problem we cut the tour short after about 1 hour. Honestly. I don't think we missed very much since all the historic sites are located in the downtown area

I recommend this tour but the meeting point is not a "5 minute walk from the dock" more like 20 minutes, in my opinion.

We appreciated Sashay’s tour. She took us through interesting areas and knew a lot about the historical and cultural contexts of the places she showed us. She was friendly, fun and open to talking about her own experience as someone who grew up on the island. Highly recommended!

We had an awesome time with our tour guide! She answered all our questions and told us about so much the city and island’s history. She was very patient with both my elderly mother and her friend. She slowed the pace and allowed them time to rest in the shade when needed. I would recommend this tour for all ages!!

We just returned from our tour and we couldn’t be happier. True, our guide , was extremely knowledgeable and very well organized. There was not a question she couldn’t answer. Nassau is a beautiful city and the history of Bahamas is very interesting. A beautiful afternoon. My kids loved it too and our guide was incredible!

True was a great tour guide! We were very fortunate to have her almost all to ourselves with just one other (very lovely) person on the tour with us. With just 3 of us along for the walk, we were able to ask a ton of questions that True knew the answer to all of them. We learned a lot and would very highly recommend True as a guide.

I have done this trip twice with two different guides and was thrilled with both tours. The tour has great information with fun local tips and knowledge thrown in. The tour has a bit of all types of information and the guides are very fun! I would recommend for all types of people to take this tour!

True is a very knowledgeable guide to Nassau and made sure that we saw all the sights a tourist would want to catch, plus a few hidden gems. Her explanations of Nassau's culture and history were fascinating, and we learned even more than we were expecting. You cannot go wrong choosing this tour.

Sure I'll go lay on the beach and soak up the rays and waves, but first gimme a chance to see some cultue and history firsthand! In just a 2 hour tour downtown Nassau you can travel in time from Pirate days to Paradise days with a fun little walking tour. Our guide was great and also knew everyone would like to shop afterwards so she pointed out the spots along the way.. we had a fun time with other couples and a little family and then hung out in town to double back to the stores and market - don't miss it!
