“Pirates Punch and Rum Dums!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This tour was so much fun! our wonderful tour guide Maria was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, the Bahamas and all the rum that goes with it. each of the locations we stopped at had great staff with all of the information you could want especially the Pirate pub and chocolatier. the greyclif property is an amazing place to see enriched with history from the hay day of the Bahamas, as does the Watlings buena vista property. a great way to learn about the rich and illicit history of the Bahamas!

“Informative and Exciting”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

My girlfriend came to visit Nassau in March and a mutual friend recommended that we go on Islandz’ walking history tour. We were fortunate to have Jaime, the founder of Islandz as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable of the history of downtown Nassau and the Bahamas in general. In addition to history, the tour also had a lot of information on the architectural style of Nassau. I have lived in Nassau my whole life and after taking the Islandz tour, I have a greater appreciation for my country’s history.

“Outstanding value and well worth your time!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We just took the Rum Runner Tour with the lovely Maria. The price of $50 put some of our party off, but it was well worth the money and MORE! You sample 6 rums, get two deluxe cocktails, rum flavored chocolate and guava cake with a mouth watering rum/butter sauce. Maria was very knowledgeable and shared so much local history and facts that the afternoon flew by. Each of the individual stops were fun and interesting. The Pirate Pub, Art Gallery, Greycliff and Waitlings Rum Distillery were all worth their own visit.
