I didn't know what to expect but this was an amazing day. Donald was so delightful. He went out of his way to make sure we saw everything. Dianna was sweet and cook a great meal that we enjoyed overlooking the ocean. It is a casual, laid back day but full of interesting things

Alexan... Again thank you for taking the chance on Diane and me when you could easily have taken any other tour. While we may not stand out through marketing we stand out through giving you an experience that as we say is truly a Bahamian souvenir. Appreciate your review and taking the time to actually give us one. Blessings.

Donald and his family are very nice people and they provided a very pleasant meal, however if you are on a limited travel/tour budget, I would not choose this option again. There are a number of better, more enjoyable options in Freeport which include deep sea fishing with Tom

Karl I am just seeing this as there was no alert given that the review was made.I thank you for you review and providing other options to our tour as this will certainly help the other tour operators. This is not a low budget tour as you stated as we try to give you more of a Bahamian experience than the usual tourist tour. When you compare what is included, I am sure you would agree that for the time and value included this is a best priced tour. Donald D.
