Fantastic cultural and heritage tour. Our guide, Vernita, was very knowledgeable abd friendly. She gave us an informative guided tour of the slave village and surrounding area. We learned so much. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Bahamian history, the triangular slave trade, and the beauty and struggle of the islands. A delicious lunch was also... More

I had a super vacation in Paradise Island, Bahamas. I went to see the Clifton Heritage National Park in Nassau. The plantation at Clifton Heritage National Park is the only plantation remaining in Nassau. There is a large master’s house and smaller buildings that were slave quarters.

The car rental was good to have as we could immerse ourselves in the history of the island, imagining the harsh conditions the slaves endured in the remnants of the buildings still there.

We went to the park to go to the Snorkel beach to see the statues, But when we got there the sea was rough and the undercurrant was very strong. I did not even attempt to go out, but my husband did and he had trouble getting back. The website does not give any information about how far you have... More

Hello Kimmmmm! We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. It seem as if you only paid for a self-guided snorkel tour ($20.00 pp) as oppose to our guided snorkel tour which is $40.00 (+7.5% value added tax) per person. Perhaps you should visit us again and take the guided snorkel tour....the experience is like... More

This gorgeous and tranquil park is away from the crowds with beautiful white sand and turquoise water. A stand nearby offers refreshments. The staff and locals are endearing. Well worth the effort to get there from the busy city. Plan to spend as much time as possible.

Sure, the resorts (Paradise Island) in Nassau are fine, and fun for the kids, but, why not get a little culture in while you're in the Bahamas. Those resorts/casino environments you can get in the Las Vegas. Get off Paradise Island for at least a day and experience this wonderful island of Nassau, the culture, history and people.

We took the tour package with lunch. It also included transportation to our resort. We were assigned vernita as a guide. She was very good. Friendly, knowledgable, obliging. The lunch was excellent. Not the normal beach and fun tour. She gave us history and scenery.

Visited the centre with friends. Excellent customer service and had a lovely lady guide who was very knowledgeable. Lunch was delicious on the beach and the amazing snorkelling taken out by an experienced guide in the water. The beach is beautiful and unspoilt and the views and water gorgeous.

We spent a week in the Bahamas (New Providence) last week. What a great experience and vacation. We did the day visit to Clifton Heritage National Park because we truly love the outdoors and historical settings wherever we go.
