Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After being collected from your accommodations in the morning you'll spend the day being introduced to the vibrant culture, listening to local music, learning a few Bahamian phrases and eating and drinking like a local as you are transported around the island in air conditioned comfort. 

    This culinary and history tour takes you through the city to 6 stops where you will sample the island's delicacies, some being made right before your eyes. Sip on local beers and bush teas, visit a cake factory, a historical museum, and old battle forts. Then end your day with a Bahamian style lunch at a local restaurant.

    If you are looking for a tour that combines food, culture and history then this is the tour for you.

    Response from Bahamas Tours &, Manager at Nassau Food and History Bus Tour
    Responded 2 days ago
    Dear Michelle, Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance as the pick up location information was delivered to you by e-mail though the Viator portal and its the location we pick up from everyday and its not the welcome center and not the end of the pier. Nonetheless, you were did not receive what was promised with your purchase, and that's what's important. You have reached out to us and we have responded by e-mail. We have also refunded your purchase. With each review we use it as a suggestion for improvement, and your review will help us to detemine how we can avoid this issue in the future. Regards A. Roberts Manager.
