We booked the rum runners tour instead of a cruise ship excursion. We are really pleased we did as we had a great afternoon with Joelle and our fellow tourers. (4 people in our group total. We were told a maximum of 10) The rendezvous is easy to find and about 10 mins walk from the cruise ships. The meeting... More

We took the Bahama Brews beer tour while in port off a cruise ship. As it turned out we were the only two on the tour so it was really nice and intimate. Our guide Lindsay was very knowledgeable about local history and we enjoyed the tour as much for the history lesson of the Bahamas as the beer. It... More

My husband and I went on the Rum walking tour which was awesome. We were in a group of four and everyone seemed very pleased. We had a LOT to drink over time and our guide Joelle was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent history of Nassau, pirates and rum! We had several stops including cigar and chocolate makers....

We had a great time on this tour! Joelle (I hope I am spelling it right) was very outgoing and we learned so much history, had great laughs and fun, drank a lot and Orchid's aunt makes the BEST little rum cakes!!! This is an adults only tour and if you aren't a big drinker it's probably a waste of... More

Only for drinking adults, must walk and streets and walking conditions not the best. Guide was one of the best we ever encountered. The tour stops were all well presented The Graycliff house and chocolate factory were good so was the Whitling Distillery.

Jamie was awesome! That guy knows his local history and presented it in a fun and interesting way. Ask him at the end of the tour when he's wrapping up to mention tipping. My bad- I should have chased him down.

We were completely spoiled for our tour as we were the only group for that time. We had the guide, food and rum all to ourselves! Our guide's name was Jason.

My wife and I wanted to experience Nassau downtown and learn about the bootlegging history. We came away with much more than expected. Our guide, Orchard, was very knowledgeable about the rum and bootlegging history, but also on island life in general. The time flew by as we hopped from bar to bar. Wonderful conversation, intriguing history and great rum... More
