Our guide, Mikey, made this experience amazing! The balance of our tasting tour through the world of rum, a walking tour of Nassau, and the exciting tale of the history of The Bahamas (complete with pirates and the British overthrow) made for one of the best days of our vacation! I learned a lot, tasted some great rum, and made a friend in The Bahamas! A must for anyone looking for a great excursion!

My friend and I decided to do this excursion on a recent cruise to the Bahamas. The reviews were all positive, so we thought it seemed like a safe bet. We were not disappointed. It was a short walk from the port to the meeting spot. Julio, our tour guide, was awesome. He was on time, knowledgeable, and not at all boring. Our group consisted of my friend, myself, and one other solo traveler. This made the excursion that much more fun, in my opinion. I recommend this one to all the people who are looking for something a little bit different, enjoy a good drink and some history and culture, and aren’t opposed to walking. I would absolutely go on this excursion again.

One of the best ways to know about a culture is through its food. On this excursion, I learned important facts about this port but mainly I tasted the exquisite desserts and snacks plus the best rum. I loved it. No children around, just best.

My wife has been on 3 cruises and says this was the best excursion she has been on! We both immensely enjoyed the rum tour. Our guide, Mikey, was awesome! He was funny and informative while helping us get \"educated while we got intoxicated\". So much fun and a beautiful tour. The drinks and snacks were great too. Highly recommend!

Lovely walking tour, we have stayed in Nassau/ Paradise Island several times . We like Atlantis but really enjoyed the non commercial aspect of this tour and even my 20 ish daughter said she had a better time doing this than our other week long stays in Nassau.

Great time in Nassau!

We arrived super early to the restaurant (my mistake), but we were thoroughly entertained by the bartender Dino and had a delicious breakfast sandwich. We ended up with a private tour for 2 and our guide, Jaime, was both knowledgeable and personable. We sampled 5 rums and had a Bahama mama, then we walked to an art studio which had a table prepared for us. There we had conch fritters and a rum cupcake, so delicious! Then we walked to Graycliff and visited the hotel grounds, cigar shop, chocolate shop (awesome samples-better than the bigger tours) and the ice cream parlor (another awesome sample!). We wrapped up the tour at the distillery where we sampled their rum varieties out on the patio and had their signature drink. Short walk back to the ship. It was a great day!!

My friend and I were on Royal Caribbean cruise and we were looking for something to do at Nassau. We found this tour and decided to give it a shot (rum and food... how can you go wrong, right?). The directions are a little hard to follow to get to the tour as the first location was under construction, but eventually we figured it out and met up with the tour guide (at the bar of the Pirate Museum). It ended up being just me, my friend, and two other women on the tour. I'm a history buff as well so it was great to hear the background about rum runners, bootleggers, pirates, and the history of the Bahamas as it tied in to the rum we were tasting. We started out at the first bar (The Pirate Museum) with three types of rum and learned the differences between the types, ages, and how to taste each one. This was followed by a mixed rum drink that we could take on a walk with us down the street to our next location! The next stop was a local museum which was home to the work of one of the local artists. Here we were able to try Conch Fritters and a rum (cup)cake pastry! We then proceeded to Graycliff Hotel, Cigar Factory, Chocolate Factory where we got a tour and were told the history. This was followed by more rum with chocolate. The last stop on the tour was John Watlings Distillery just outside the border of Nassau. We were greeted at the door with a pina colada shot and then made our way in for a tour and eventual tasting of three more types of their award-winning rum. The tour concluded here with a mixed rum drink called a Rum Dump that is unique to this location as it was concocted by one of the bartenders. Overall, amazing experience all around. History, chocolate, site seeing, and of course RUM! Our tour guide was very friendly and kept the entire tour entertaining. Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone!

We had a few problems starting out but got everything figured out. We were a little behind but had a complementary drink while we waited. Orchid was our tour guide. She was great! She told us all sorts of stories and put up with our off the wall questions. She even brought us rum cupcakes her grandmother made. I plan to come back and hopefully I can request her as my guide.

Great tour!!!
     5/5  September 2015
We had a minor problem with our tour time but it turned out to be a great blunder to have. We ended up at a different time with only one other couple. It was like a private tour. Orchid was wonderful. She feels like a friend now. Can't wait to see her again for another tour. She was so knowledgeable and sweet. She didn't rush us through anything and let us ask as many questions as we wanted. We felt like we were getting a tour from a friend or family member. We didn't feel "led around". It was worth every penny!

This tour was fantastic! The lessons learned regarding rum, local history, and the walking tour and chocolates was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had the best time ever. This tour was worth every penny. I am so glad I booked this tour on my own! Everything we tasted was amazing and of the highest quality!
