Phenomenal Authentic Bahamian Cultural Experience
sashafQ5978AE, 01-06-2022
We organized an afternoon tour with Tyrone hoping to learn more about the Bahamas culture and to see the highlights. Tyrone immediately greeted us with a smile and a great attitude. He was extremely knowledgeable, we learned more during this tour than we did the entire time we were staying on the island for vacation. We learned everything, from Bahamian medicine, to authentic food and drink, we learned about the people and country in depth. This was an amazing tour that you won’t regret! It was truly something you cannot experience elsewhere or just by wandering into town. Tyrone organized some incredible stops and he curated a true unique and authentic Bahamian experience!

We highly recommend you book this tour, and if you’re on the fence trust me you won’t regret it it! It was better than we could have ever imagined!!
Great tour

Nassau City Tour

The best city tour operator we have ever used. Tyrone took us to all kinds of local spots that probably would have been missed by another company.
His service was above and beyond. We had a great time with him.
Thanks Tyrone.

Tyronne was the best!! Most accommodating and informative! We didn’t go in a big group and he was really nice enough to schedule our own private time due to covid. The Rum cake was my favorite part, he is not lying when he says it’s the best!!
