Know More about this tour

In downtown Nassau, meet your friendly tour guide and head to your first stop, Smuggler's Beer Garden, on George Street. As you enjoy your first sample of rum, try to imagine the days — more than 300 years ago — when the unruly pirates of the Caribbean roamed these streets, inebriated on their ‘demon water.’

Continue walking through downtown Nassau to three more local establishments, where you’ll fill up on rum cocktails, savory snacks and sweet, boozy treats. Enjoy bites of homemade boozy rum cupcakes for dessert!

As you get to know the city’s rum and food scene with your guide, discover off-the-beaten-path sites and hear madcap stories about the island’s swashbuckling and rum-running history. Passing historical buildings, learn how they once played a role in the profiteering business as storage space for liquor about to be transported across the ocean.

Fittingly, your tour ends at John Watling’s Distillery, located on the island’s Buena Vista Estate. Learn about how rum is made here, from fermentation to aging in white-oak barrels, and hear about the mysteries surrounding 17th-century pirate John Watling, for whom the distillery is named.

  • This tour was the perfect way to spend our afternoon! Orchid, our tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She definitely made this a great experience.

  • Great tour! Orchid was our guide. She was fun, informative and entertaining! Perfect amount of time. We did the 11 am tour and then went for lunch.

  • It was a great paced, informative, and fun tour! We tried 6 different rums to start, received cocktails for walking to some historic sites, learned about the history of the Bahamas, and visited a cigar making shop, artisanal chocolate shop, and gelato store, and ended at a local distillery, John Watling's, where we tried one more rum sample and a cocktail, and learned about barrel aging rums. During our walk we were able to try conch fritters, two different kinds of rum-infused chocolates, and some rum raisin ice cream. It was a manageable walk and a nice way to learn more about the Bahamas from a local. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. I was nervous it would not be worth the money, but it was fantastic and well worth it.

  • I loved it!!!
