          Amazing tour of the East end of Grand Bahama Island
          I highly recommend this tour because Hida, as a Bahamian resident, really knows the island well and can customize the tour for those who attend. There is a maximum of only 4 people so you will get a very personal experience! This tour lasts most of the day and you will see so much more than you would from a cruise shore excursion (for those arriving by cruise ship like myself). I plan to come back and do a boat tour with her next time!

          Fantastic experience!
          First and foremost, the guide was spectacular! We were not able to swim with the sea turtles due to a storm that came through, but our guide did the absolute best to make it worth it for us! She is a local from the islands, and takes pride in what she does, and loves her island! Took us to all the lesser known parts (less touristy), and it was exactly what we wanted! 10/10 would highly recommend!

          Amazing and personalized day!
          We had a fabulous and event filled day with Hida as our personal guide. She exposed us to more of a local side of the Bahamas. We bought bread from a local baker, visited a farmers market where we had the BEST conch fritters all vacation, saw a dolphin enclosure and the best places to stay on the island, saw a settlement where locals gather to have fun as well as a typical Bahamian home, visited a local brewery, and then traveled to the East End. There we spent a couple hours enjoying a picnic lunch and swimming at Gold Rock beach. We were almost the only ones there and the water and views were amazing. We also traveled to Garden of the Groves and visited the caves. Throughout the tour Hida shared her knowledge and answered our questions. I learned far more about the Bahamas than any other island I have visited. It was an amazing experience.

          A Special Day
          We had a great time on this trip! Hida showed us a lot of places in the East part of the Island. The best part was that beautiful beach named Golden Rock, it is beautiful and clear. We visited the caves and learned about the medicinal plants. Also visited markets and got a few cute souvenirs and the best Bahama Mama in Brenda tend. We really recommend this if you want to enjoy a full day in Freeport.

          Best tour guide around!
          We had so much fun exploring the grand Bahamas with Hida. She taught us so much about the culture and took us to so many amazing places. She treated us like family. She is so sweet and kind. We had so much fun swimming with the pigs and snorkeling with the turtles. She took care of everything for us. It was wonderful!

          A Great Day Out!
          My husband and I had an excellent day with Hida. She gave us a lot of great insight into the history of the island and its recent experiences. She even made an extra stop for us to see the botanical garden because we showed interest even though it was off our itinerary. And we finished with just the right amount of beach time. We felt that she was able to personalize the tour on the fly to reflect our interests. It really was an excellent experience that I highly recommend.

          Best tour ever!
          My daughter and I went to the grand Bahamas for spring break. She is 12. We didn’t know what to expect when we booked the tour with Hida—- our experience was amazing! She is the best! It was a legit personal tour with her! We even canceled a tour we had booked with the resort to have another day with her! She is now part of our family! If she asks if you want a personal snorkeling tour with micheal, please say yes! Micheal is amazing! 🩷🩷🩷 p.s for some reason it won’t let me add pictures

          Hida Made Grand Bahama feel like home
          This was my husband's and my first visit to Grand Bahama Island. While sitting at the resort was beautiful and relaxing, we were interested in learning more about the island - its history, what it's like for residents, and what tourists may not always experience. We were SO happy we stumbled across Hida online, and we could NOT be happier with our day-long tour. We instantly felt like we were riding around with a friend we'd known forever instead of someone we just met. Hida was knowledgeable and friendly. While we toured island staples like the Garden of the Groves (which was like paradise in paradise), she also drove us through settlements that were integral to the island but off the typical tourist path. Ms. Brenda's conch fritters are second to none. We'd had some fritters at another booth the day before, and as good as they were, they were no comparison to the explosion of flavors and light texture of Ms. Brenda's fritters! Somehow, Hida managed to show us interesting parts of the entire island, make numerous stops to provide unique experiences, and share beautiful beach views in only 6 hours without us ever feeling rushed. We are enthusiastically encouraging our family and friends to visit Grand Bahama - AND requiring them to do a tour with Hida if they make the trip because we cannot imagine our trip without her.

          We had only one day on GBI and spending it with Hida was the right decision
          I totally agree with previous reviewers - a day with Hida is the best way to get to know Grand Bahama and a day well spent. She is such a mellow person and is happy to accommodate all the wishes her guests could have. I asked her to arrange a surprise drink for a person's birthday and it was just what I expected as if she had read my mind. Also, she knows so much about everything, and all the nice places that a tourist could not find on their own. I and also my friends who were with me that day absolutely recommend contacting her, instead of just going swimming with pigs. You'll get so much more with a personal tour guide.

          See GBI from a Local's Perspective
          What should you do when you have 3.5+ hours to spare and want to see as much as possible in GBI? Book a personalized tour with Hida which is the best way to explore the island from the perspective of a local versus a tourist from having conch freshly prepared for you at the farmer's market to frolicking on 3 of the local beaches to venturing to caves at the national park while hearing highlights of a storied history and being treated to different communities along the way. There's nothing I'd change about my visit, but to have more time in this special place in the Caribbean!

          Real life in grand Bahama and nature
          Hida was really great! She showed us what we wanted to see! Best part was our cave adventure! She timed it so the sun was streaming in. Got great photos! Learned to make conch fritters with her friend Brenda! My Multiple Sclerosis kept me a bit tired but, a fab time was had by all! And I learned the medicinal plants! Loved it!!!!

          Fun in the sun trip to Grand Bahama
          My first experience to the Bahamas was unique and exhilarating, thanks to Hida and her wealth of knowledge of this beautiful island. She took me to many low-key gems you wouldn’t get with any other excursion. From trying the best fresh conch fritters, to stumbling upon a random fresh market with super friendly Bahamians, to snorkeling some of the most epic reefs ever.. Hida is the best guide, and will teach you so much about the islands. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to get an intimate experience of Grand Bahama.
