The perfect tour of Nassau
tjl836, 19-09-2022
Mr Wilson hosts an excellent tour. Very knowledgeable, incredibly respectable and most of all VERY entertaining. Him and his son are the perfect guides, patient, kind and attentive. They even volunteered to take pictures for us as we toured Nassau. The hospitality is incredible. All around an immaculate time with zero complaints.
Awesome tour

Tyrone was amazing. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the island and made the tour fun. We had the opportunity to see so many awesome places and try lots of island delicacy’s. I would definitely recommend this tour to all visitors.

Thanks Tyrone for being such a wonderful tour guide and driver.
Amazing Time with Tyrone

I had so much fun on this tour that I went back and did it a second day in a row! Tyrone Wilson is THE island’s best tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about everything from history to plant life. He allowed me to tailor the tour to my interests, too. Both times, I saw amazing things and got fantastic pictures. It’s a great way to see a lot of Nassau!

Extremely informative tour; you don’t only see the common tourist attractions, but also the less wealthy side of the island. We stopped at a rum factory (my personal favourite), tea shop, chocolate factory, etc. It was a very pleasant experience, would definitely recommend.
Island Highlights Sightseeing Tour Review
mojoandsuz, 22-09-2022
Our tour was hosted by Tyrone's son, Kyrone. We had booked the tour for a RC cruise ship stop based on previous Tripadvisor reviews. My wife and I met Kyrone near near the old police station just outside of the cruise ship security area. Our tour vehicle was a minivan and we shared the tour with two other very nice people. Our first stop was the rum cake factory, but it was really just a shop where we had an opportunity to taste and purchase various flavors of rum cake. Our next stop was Atlantis, where we strolled around the resort hotel and grounds for about 30 minutes on our own. We stopped at a little park where we walked around for a few minutes and took a couple of photos, then on to the Queen's Staircase where we climbed about 65 stairs to reach an area on top with local merchants selling their goods in a line of small booths. We also stopped at the Graycliff Chocolate factory where we had the opportunity to taste and purchase some locally made chocolate. Our final stop was John Watling’s Rum Distillery where we had the opportunity to taste and purchase various bottles of rum. On the way to and in between stops Kyrone shared some of the history of Nassau. He was a very polite young man and was knowledgeable about the history of Nassau, but I would have to say that overall I was uninspired.
