I was so excited for this tour. I’ve done 10 cruises and have always booked excursions through the cruise line but this tour got such good reviews so I took a chance. First red flag, when I read over the reservation card/email there was no mention of WHERE the pick up location would be. I had to email them to get the info that pick up is at 1045 at end of pier. THEN I get off the boat and it’s unclear WHERE the end of the pier is. SECOND red flag, I ask a guy who is lining up ppl for tours and he’s never heard of this tour. So I go to the welcome center and they don’t know about it either. THIRD reg flag. I try to call on my cell and the welcome Ctr guy calls and no answer!. I was there from 1045-1125 and no one ever called or emailed me. So disappointed.

Dear Michelle, Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance as the pick up location information was delivered to you by e-mail though the Viator portal and its the location we pick up from everyday and its not the welcome center and not the end of the pier. Nonetheless, you were did not receive what was promised with your purchase, and that's what's important. You have reached out to us and we have responded by e-mail. We have also refunded your purchase. With each review we use it as a suggestion for improvement, and your review will help us to detemine how we can avoid this issue in the future. Regards A. Roberts Manager.

Great Day Trip!

My husband and I spent a half day with Keith and Sandy exploring out of the way spots! They were great fun and so informative! We tasted rum cakes, had conch salad, visited forts and ate lunch at a local restaurant. They picked us up at our resort and gave us a very knowledgeable tour. We will definitely recommend them to our friends!

Fun afternoon with Keith and Sandy sampling local food and drinks!
Dec 2019
We were picked up promptly at our hotel by Keith and Sandy in a small, clean van and we then went to pick up another couple at the cruise dock. It was raining but Sandy had us “covered” -she brought rain ponchos! Sandy and Keith were fun, funny and super smart about the local history and always professional. We made several stops to try some samples of locally made food and drink and even got to taste the freshest conch salad on the island! Well worth the time and money! Cheers to a “Happy and “Healthy” New Year Sandy and Keith!

Cultural tour with a personal touch
Dec 2019 • Family
Thanks to Sandy and Keith! They love their hometown and are happy to educate others on the history, people, traditions, and cuisine. We started out seeing an old fort. I don’t want to give away the details- let Keith do that. Then to a local seafood market to see the conch right off the boat. They teach you how to pull the conch out of the shell! Then on to the rum cake store where there’s a party going all all the time. Queens staircase and all the history behind it taught to us by Sandy. Then healing tea shop and lunch at a local seafood restaurant. There were drinks and snacks the whole way. Believe me, you won’t be hungry after that. The conch fritters at the end we’re delicious and a final gift of a recipe card. Sandy and Keith are a hoot! They bounce jokes off each other and keep you smiling.

Great Way to Experience Nassau!
Oct 2019
Loved this tour and will definitely do this again when I am in Nassau.. I arranged this tour on my own via TripAdvisor instead of going through the cruise line. Everything went without a hitch. You are picked up right outside the cruise terminal, so that made it much easier. The food was delicious and authentic and lunch at the restaurant at the Fish Fry was an added and unexpected bonus. There was plenty of food and it was more than satisfying. My group of four senior " seasoned" citizens thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide and driver were WONDERFUL and very sweet and accommodating. We had a 72-year old and an 85-year old who had some mobility issues, but they were very accommodating and made sure ALL had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour.
Oct 2019
I have always booked by tours through the cruise line. Never again. If you are visiting Nassau this is the tour you should take. Keith (driver) and Sandi (guide) were great. We never felt rushed, they went at our pace, and answered any and all questions. I really enjoyed being down by the water watching FRESH counk being prepared. Drinks were cold and fresh, food was hot and fresh. We will be back in June 2020 and plan on doing this again with a larger group. Sandi and Keith we loved it and thank you (Richard, Cassandra, Michael, Ernestine)!
