“Rum Runner Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

BOOK THIS NOW!! My boyfriend and I found the tour here on trip advisor and the reviews are so true! Orchid did a great job of balancing history and fun facts about rum, the area, and the culture. She was so personable and made us feel right at home. The tour is also a very good value for the amount of samples of rum and yummy rum infused sweets you get. We did the tour during a cruise stop, and there was plenty of time to do this, grab lunch, and do a little shopping on the way out. Orchid gave us great recommendations for lunch at a local place called the Cricket club for some delicious conch fritters and a few shops to stop at! If we go back to Nassau, we will definitely be booking another tour!

Hi Demi H! Thank you for your enthusiastic review!! It is our mission to expose our guests to a true Bahamian experience and so it is a compliment of the highest honour to know that you felt at home on our Rum-Runner's Passage Tour. Wow! We'd love to host you again when you get back to Nassau. Until then!

“Rum Runners Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

I booked our tour online right before our cruise date. My boyfriend and I wanted a tour away from the cruise ship crowds and that's exactly what we experienced! Our tour was just us! We loved the walking history, rum tasting, chocolate tasting, and the cigar shop at Graycliff's.

“Highlight of the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Went on the rum runner tour with my mom on a girls trip to the Bahamas. Jamie was wonderful--very entertaining and informative, and such a fun way to see the island of Nassau! Food and drinks were great--well paced throughout the tour and everything was delicious. Great value for the information and samples you get. Would highly recommend this to anyone--we had a blast!

We highly recommend Orchid and the rum runner tour. Lots of rum, lots of interesting history and we want the rum cake recipe too! Would definitely check out the other tours when we are in Nassau again.

“Rum Runners Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

My wife and I did the Rum Runners Tour as a part of the day we spent walking around Nassau. We were looking for something to do outside of the resorts and had a really great time. Orchid, our guide, was really great. She was a very informative guide and provided a great amount of history and local context to the tour. Had I paid attention to how many rums there would be for us to try (a first world problem if there ever was one), I might have signed up for the afternoon tour so that I would have eaten first. It really was a great experience walking around some of the historic neighborhoods and seeing the chocolate factory and the rum distillery. Orchid was also very thoughtful as she brought a gluten-free snack for my wife to eat since she could not eat the rum cake (there was a space for writing in dietary restrictions on the booking form) I look forward to returning and experiencing another of Islandz Tours' offerings.
