  • Captain Ron was fantabulous!! He most definitely knew the neighborhood and did a great job of helping us to feel welcome and a part
    We are both foodies so of course we enjoyed that immensely! Thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history of the people, struggles and experiencing their successes!! Hats off to all of the owners and kudos for their love of their country!! Don't miss out on sharing a Bahama Mama with Max!!! A real treat!! The art, the lore, the restoration, the craftsmanship and great food all in one tour!! Favorite part Captain Ron of course!! Money well spent and would do all over again!!

  • Amazing tour! So much good food and you learn about the island's history too. Highly recommend

  • Captain Ron was wonderful with all his stops and explaining all the history and inside stories of Nassau. The six stops were great with the tastings large enough to more than cover what you would eat for lunch. I recommend the late morning tour to enjoy Nassau without the heat of the day making the walking too hard, and enjoying the food of the Bahamas.

  • Captain Ron provided a great tour. He spoke about the history and culture of the Bahamas in a friendly and innovative way. The stops along the way provided a wide variety of the local foods and drinks. This was the best 3 hours we ever spent. This will be on out to do list on our next trip.

  • Fantastic Cultural and Tasting Food Tour in the Nassau. My family and I total of 5 people had a wonderful time and greatly enjoyed having Captain Ron as our tour guide. Could have not asked for a better one. He is kind, knowledgeable and passionate about the food and culture of the Bahamas. Our first stop was the Bahamian Cooking Restaurant, which has been opened for 30 years. Captain Ron taught us about the history of the restaurant, how to prepare a conch and also introduced us to the lovely owner of the restaurant. We had the most amazing local lunch, in which you could taste the love of the cooking. We started with conch fritters--- AMAZING!! flavorful steamed chicken, spicy baked macaroni, rice and pigeon peas, and coleslaw. We wrapped up with fresh lemonade. We visited the Graycliff chocolate and icecream stores delicious. Culturally we toured the Graycliff cigar factory workers are from Cuba, tour of Christ Church Cathedral, The Towne Hotel where we met Max will keep this as a surprise! Again a huge thank you to Captain Ron, who treated us like family :

  • Captain Ron was awesome. You will not only learn about the local food, but the local culture as well. Be prepared to do some walking wear comfortable shoes. Would do this one again!

    Our food tour leader was Cap'n Ron. He is now like family! What a great tour! He really personalized the tour for us and gave our group a lot of background on what we were looking at. The food was so tasty - and truly Bahamian! Conch fritter. Steamed chicken. Baked macaroni and cheese Bahamian style. Rice and peas pigeon peas, not green peas. Coleslaw. Ice cream. Rum cake very tasty. We also had some Graycliff chocolate, a tour of the Graycliff cigar factory, a short tour of Christ Church Cathedral, as well as a tour of The Towne Hotel where we sipped on rum punch. What a tour! Thanks Cap'n Ron!

  • Captain Ron was our guide and he was terrific! Truly enjoyed our walk with us 3 and 2 others. We got a late start because AND EVERYONE TRAVELING FROM A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE TAKE NOTE the ship was still on Central time but the island is on Eastern. Should have thought about it, but all the Carnival excursions are on ship time, so.... But one of the Christ Church good folks noticed us hanging around and remembered Captain Ron looking for his lost party and notified Tru Tasting. We had only missed the 1st course, and he arranged for us to get it to go, so at each stop after we ate a little from it. Everything was REALLY good, and the tours were enjoyable. We went back to the chocolate store after to make purchases.

  • We received a text reminder and welcome on Day 1 of our cruise from the tour leader and guide. I was able to respond that the ship announced a new time to arrive in port on day 3 and so we would miss our scheduled tour. We received an immediate text reply stating that he would schedule a new tour time that would accommodate our arrival. Upon arrival at the designated meeting place, we realized our guide had arranged this tour for the 2 of us and only one other couple and this couple never showed up. Instead of cancelling us, we ended up with a most marvelous private tour of Nassau that included a wonderful and filling food tasting, and a great description and history of the places we saw by a very knowledgeable gentleman who was born and raised in Nassau. All of this with a pending hurricane heading for the Bahamas within days. I have been on two prior, similar tours that were very good, but this tour was by far so much better. There was more to eat, a cocktail was served, and the guide could not have been better. I highly recommend this particular Nassau Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour to everyone, even if you have tried something similar in the past,. I feel certain that you will NOT be disappointed.

  • Fun and filling 3 hours! Alexandra was a delightful guide and our visits to the local restaurants exceeded our expectations. The tour was more professional than most we have done, in that they provided each of us with a printed brochure, map, list of restaurants we were going to visit and coupons for local shops. Would highly recommend this to round out your Nassau visit.
