Good not great

Overall, it was a nice tour... but there were some issues. Our tour guide, Princess was amazing; she was full of energy, knowledgeable, and engaging. However, there were changes made to the tour due to COVID restrictions that weren't transparent. For example, instead of going to the Tortuga Rum Cake location (a reason we chose this tour), we were served saran wrap covered cakes that had been sitting in a backpack all day. Additionally, we toured multiple places with gift shops... but weren't given any time to purchase anything.

Highlight of Our Cruise!!!

You know how you go on a trip, and people ask you how it was? This was the first cruise for my fiance and I, so there was a lot that we could talk about. But the one thing that we bring up every time was the Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour put on by Captain Ron! Captain Ron was AMAZING! Great walking tour put together with lots of great information. It started to rain very hard on us during the tour, and Captain Ron was ready with ponchos. Despite the weather, we had a great time; one of the most memorable parts of our trip!!! I highly recommend Captain Ron and his Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour to anyone going to Nassau; you won't be disappointed!

Excellent Experience

The Nassau Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour were a highlight of our trip! My husband and I could not have been happier with the experience that Captain Ron gave us! It was above and beyond what we expected. His personality, humor, deep understanding and love for his country are evident. We would hands down repeat this tour and I have already recommended it to others traveling to the area soon.

Great food, drinks and laughs

My wife and I did this tour last week and we enjoyed our selves. The food and drinks were ranging from good to excellent. This tour is a good way to introduce your self to the Bahamian food and the downtown food scene. I would also recommend you to do it early on your visit to the Bahamas. It could also be useful to know that that the tour does not cover that much of the Nassau history and landmarks. If you want that as well, you could do another tour later on in your Bahamas trip.

Captain Ron was a great tour guide, super knowledgeable, and friendly. We tasted delicious food from all over downtown Nassau and got a great glimpse of the culture of the island! We would definitely recommend this to any couple or family visiting the area.
