Food & History tour

Captain Ron did a great job with non-stop information on the food, preparation, history and even included the personal stories on the restaurant owners and staff. The best food tour we have ever been on. Some how he also covered Bahamas history pointing out buildings and locations along the way as well as the places we visited. If you just wanted a history or downtown tour you can't go wrong

The best thing about the tour is the guide and Lisa was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, bubbly and amusing Lisa kept us all engaged through the experience. Learning about the history and food culture really added to our understanding of the island and its people. Would definitely recommend doing this excursion. Maybe not the conch sliders though that was like eating little pieces of rubber… nasty as shown by most people leaving theirs.

Princess our guide was excellent. She made the tour fun and was very knowledgeable. The food was good and as said in the details you will visit places that you may have not chosen to go to on your own. The graycliff hotel and restaurant and the town hotel restaurant were quite nice. In addition, along the way you will see and she explains many of the sites of Nassau. By the end of the tour you will be filled with both food and knowledge of Nassau. No need to eat after this tour.
