Queen Bee our Tour guide and Tyrone the driver were great. She had so much knowledge of the island. We really enjoyed the tour. We only wished that there was more time at that Atlantis. Happy Birthday Queen Bee
We wanted to see the sites of Nassau, but knowing they drive on the other side than us and not knowing the area we booked with Cool Destinations. Thank goodness! We never could have navigated to all the wonderful sites, much less find parking by ourselves. Our driver Ty, was fantastic. Our own Queen Bee filled us in on all the history of the places we saw. And listen to her if you want rewarded at the end!!
We were looking for something that showed us the highlights of Nassau. The staff was very professional and engaging. Queen B was great, and it was a very laid back approach to seeing some highlights and getting a feel of the city.
The Nassau Island Highlights Tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Queen B was engaging, funny and informative. We had a blast touring places like the Rum Cake Factory, The Chocolate Factory, the Queen's Steps (which was beautiful) and the Rum Distillery. Queen B shared a lot of history and explained the cultural relevance of many things along the way. She made it fun! The bus was awesome - clean, comfortable and air conditioned. Overall, a wonderful way yo get a real taste of Nassau
Went on tour from Carnival Elation cruise ship stop.
Tyrone Wilson daughter was very informative and interactive with us.
Booking a tour on line there are always doubts with the outcome. Reviews helps a lot and for this reason I am writing this review to help the next person looking to book this tour. Our tour guide Berdy was amazing. She gave us the history of the Bahamas and asked us questions. There were prices awarded to the person with the correct answer. The vehicle was comfortable and driver was wonderful. We were dropped off at the beach and the rest of the guest were returned to the cruise port. I highly recommend this tour, it is fun and interactive. Good job Berdy. Thank you for a wonderful day in the Bahamas.
Had so much fun on our tour 7/6!! I loved that you still got to explore on your own. Our guide and driver were awesome. I can’t remember name but she called the driver Moe? Not sure it was their real name but she was fun and had such great energy! She gave great history and info about the island that I never knew. Highly recommend!!
