Owner description: Islandz Tours guides visitors through downtown Nassau’s rich historic passageways, hidden architectural treasures, art galleries, and street murals painted by local Bahamian and international artists. Our mission is to provide a vibrant image of the culture and heritage of The Bahamas in a captivating, informative, and authentic way. We offer a variety of daily tours to choose from, and incorporate light refreshments and adequate rest stops along the way. All guides are local Nassuvians, certified by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism’s Bahama Host Program, and absolutely love to share their island city with its visitors.

As a History teacher I am always looking for ways to learn about the places we visit and this tour did not disappoint! I booked this walking tour online for my husband and I as a shore excursion while on a cruise. We were met right on time by our tour guide Maria and we were off for a fun adventure! Maria was not only very knowledgeable about the history that rum (and rum running) played in the development of the Bahamas but also in Bahamian history in general. She even shared some secret historical facts!! We visited several interesting sites, learned how to taste rum, sampled a variety of rums, rum drinks, rum-infused chocolates and a delicious cake with rum sauce.

This was definitely not one of those boring history tours where the tour guide doesn't even realize they have "lost" the participants in their rambling. If you are going to be spending any time in Nassau I would highly recommend that you spend a few of those hours on this tour!

We are staying with friends who currently live in Nassau...our host had recommended this tour and arranged for us to go on it...what a great way to learn about the history of the Bahamas, and Nassau in particular. Our tour guide, Maria, had an impressive knowledge of the history associated with the various buildings/sites we saw and was always able to answer our questions. An excellent walking tour, and well worth the cost...looking forward to doing the Rum Tour soon

We (my mother, sister and myself) booked a walking art tour through islandztours.com since we wanted a feel for the local artists. Our tour guide,Orchid, was absolutely wonderful. Her knowledge of the local art work and artists made this a must do tour! We visited several outside murals, two local galleries and the National Art Museum. Orchid's narrative at each stop gave us a very interesting insight into the local art scene.I understand that islandztours offer several other tours and if they are as good as this one was, I urge you to take one. We enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.

Our family of four choose this tour to do as a shore excursion from our cruise. We were met right on time by Maria and had a wonderful time. Maria was very knowledgable- not only about the history of rum runners, but about the Bahamas in general. We enjoyed the walking tour and felt like we saw a part of Nassau that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We tasted some delicious samples of chocolate, rum cake and rum punch along the way, too!

Great tour with fun and educational guides. A great way to learn about the history and culture of Nassau, that you won't find at the resorts or beaches.
