Interesting and high-quality walking tour of Nassau
Marilyn Fisher, Feb 2020 Verified
We arranged this historical walking tour just hours before it took place, mostly because of the cold and windy weather that kept us off the beach that day. It was an educational and energetic tour that was a good choice for a cool day. We had always wanted to know more about the history of the Bahamian people, and our tour guide, CRASHONDA, was very knowledgeable about every era of the Bahamas, and was able to teach us a lot about it. We saw the site at the port where slaves were sold, a former jail which is now a public library, various cathedrals and churches of many denominations, the current police station. We walked through affluent business districts as well as neighborhoods of local residents. We visited a stone fort designed to be mistaken for a ship, located at the top of a hill. Its builders built it with the intent to lure enemy ships in too close, so they would crash on the rocks. We saw and traversed the Queen’s Stairway, steep stairs descending a hand-chiseled crevice in the Stone Mountain. The tour was educational, plus we got our steps in for the day! We recommend this tour highly, but participants should be in good physical health and sure-footed, since it involves walking up hills, down a very long, steep flight of stairs, walking on broken sidewalks and along the street, etc. Wear sturdy walking shoes! Our tour guide did a wonderful job; in addition to educating us, Crashonda gave each of us a fresh bottle of water to keep us hydrated, gave us rest stops and restroom stops; she made sure that we traversed the pathways safely, she spent extra time with us answering our many questions, and, at the end, she hailed a taxi for us to make sure we got back to Paradise Island safely. Thank you! We recommend this tour highly.

Nicely paced walking tour of downtown Nassau and surrounding area. Tem was very knowledgeable about history of the Bahamas as well as very well versed in the flora, fauna and birds that we encountered during our walkabout. Good value!

I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed this tour! I was looking for a walking tour (not a bus tour) and came across this one. True was a wonderful guide. She was friendly, knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She met us promptly at the meeting point in from of the McDonald's with water for both myself and my friend. My friend who had visited Nassau previously was amazed to find the Queen's Steps and the Fort. She had no idea those sites existed! I have been on many walking tours and this was one of the best!

We had a wonderful walking tour with our guide, Frederick. He arrived promptly to meet us for our 9 AM tour, and he provided us with a tremendous amount of information about the Bahamas, its history, and bush medicine. We walked the streets of Nassau and down the Queen's Steps. The weather was quite warm, and he made sure that everyone in our group was hydrated and able to keep pace with the tour. We also had the opportunity to visit Tasty Teas and the John Watling Distillery before ending our tour back where we started. I would highly recommend this tour and Frederick to anyone looking to get a local's glimpse into life on Nassau. Thanks for making our visit special!

The young man who led our tour did an amazing job- we got intimate details of the area as well as some insight into the history of bush medicine, he took time to answer all our questions and ran a great tour.

I have been to Nassau several times but this was a unique way to see and experience it. Our guide Trueranda was awesome and very knowledgeable. What a deal.

Our tour guide Tru was very knowledgeable and friendly. She showed us parts of Nassau the
average tourist does not see along the shops of Bay Street. The slave museum and Queens
steps were highlights of the tour. Finding tour meeting point requires you to check out bus
stop across from McDonald's not inside McDonald's.

FABULOUS tour. True was our guide and she could not have been any better! She was well informed and willing to discuss any/all topics we brought up, not just history. I HIGHLY recommend her! Confirmation was easy and she was right on time she easily tailored the tour to our interests and needs.

Very good tour for the money ! Saw some amazing sights ! Guide was actually early and took us around to all of the good basic local destinations that we could get to. She was very knowledgeable about culture, islands, and history and that is what we wanted. I would highly recommend her. Just remember it is a walking tour and you will walk ! Thanks again for all you did during tour !

Awesome Nassau historical tour with some very cool places on the way! I'm sad I didn't do this before I did it on my last day so couldn't enjoy it as much as I can. Great introduction to downtown Nassau and the Bahamian history. Thank you!
