The best part of the tour was definitely William, our tour guide. He was so full of information and very pleasant to have shown us a small part of the Bahamas. The food was very good, especially the Conch Chowder at Athena's restaurant and the Switcha drink was amazing at the Bahamian Kitchen restaurant as well. I would definitely recommend this tour and if possible get William.

Princess did a fine job on the tour. It was a bit “elementary” though, and could have focused a little more on relevant history. It also got political when observing a statue of Christopher Columbus. The food, although good, was very much Conch focused. They did do some steamed chicken, rice, Mac and cheese, etc, but nothing very exotic. If you get the opportunity to upgrade to alcoholic beverages, do it. You’ll be happy you did.
