    Long drive in a crowded mini bus with no air conditioning. We called and have been awaiting response about a refund. It has been over two weeks and are still no answer

    We were picked up 30 minutes late from the cruise ship port and then drove around for 45 minutes picking up additional participants from various hotels. We then started our 25 minute drive to the park. The bus was old, dirty, freezing (because there were the vents to adjust airflow were broken), and the seats were broken. We could not hear our tour guide during the drive. When we got to the park we were told to walk around the caves and then cross the street to play on the beach. Not much of a tour. The best part was the restaurant they took us to. This was a waste of my only day in Freeport.

    If you only have one day in Freeport please know that booking this Tour, you will spend most of the time picking up and dropping off people at hotels on various locations. This Tour is not suitable as a shore excursion, and we actually worried about getting back in time to board. Not good.

    Nice tour, great guide. This is a three hour tour, one hour to pick up people at different hotel. One hour at the national park, one hour at the beach, one hour at another beach and then one hour to drop of people. Caves were nice and the beach was good but not like Hawaii. For the price it was good

    Did not start well at at all. The voucher which I printed and brought with me had a scheduled meeting time of 10 am. I called their toll free number to confirm that it was 10 am Freeport time and the person I spoke with confirmed it. When we arrived at the set
    meeting location at 10 am, we were accused of being late and holding up the other guests. When I tried to show her the voucher she didn't acknowledge it at all and was irritated that we created a problem for her. Viator messed up but we got the blame.

    The local company didn't receive any info regarding my reservation. So, I had to look for their representatives around the port. I couldn't find any. Luckily, I saw one of their buses going to the other side of the port. So I walked all the way to where the bus went. I found many of their representatives on that side of the port. They were happy to accommodate and put me and my family on a bus that transferred us onto the bus that we were supposed to be on. In the end, everything worked out just fine.

    Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Only drawback was the multiple stops to add passengers. Best part was the beach. Beautiful!! Restaurant stop food was very good, large portions, reasonably priced.

    This trip should not be listed as a shore excursion from a cruise ship. Of the 5 hours we spent 2.5 driving around to hotels picking up and dropping off other passengers. The first 1.5 hours was in a bus with a broken air conditioning system that had seats with gullies in them and dropping water from the air vents. After almost 20 minutes or more trying to resolve a credit card issue for someone at one of the hotels, the air vent on the roof of the bus was finally popped. Following complaints from the hotel passengers a new bus was secured after 3 more hotel stops. Our new driver, Dwayne, was very friendly and helpful but when he began speaking about 2.5 hours to be spent at 2 beaches we had to ask him where we were going and if we would be back in time for our ship's departure. I had contacted H. Forbes Charter when I saw a beach mentioned on the reviews and asked them if we needed beach or casual clothes. On 2/27/17, Florence
    responded to wear casual clothes so any beach time was spent ill-prepared. Not that we would have had any place to sit on the beach
    since it is still scattered with glass and debris from the hurricane in October. Also, the second part of the boardwalk is closed for repair so only a short walk exists to Gold Beach. The birds supposedly filling the area, amounted to one bird, which was banded and stayed on a railing. The caves amount to a view of water about 10 steps down in two locations. Twenty minutes tops is what is spent here. Very
    misleading for a national park. We then journeyed to another beach - slightly better, but nowhere to sit. Really, this was a place to spend an hour for the hotel people to purchase a meal at the restaurant, the only building in sight. Then we began the hour trek back to drop off all the hotel people. As a visitor of many national parks and eco-friendly spots both in the US and worldwide, this was very disappointing and misleading, and quite frankly a waste of our time in this port. Call this shore excursion, Tour of the Hotels with Restaurant Stop in
    Freeport.

    This was our first cruise and first time in the Bahamas. We had a great time on this excursion. The caves were really beautiful and Gold Rock Beach was amazing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
