My husband and I booked a private tour for four. When we arrived we met Nikki who was amazing. A HUGE group appeared without having pre-booked. She spoke with us and let us know our driver was on the way and then handled this other group with grace and ease. She was extremely courteous and organized, as well as being friendly and funny and easy to talk to. We knew we had booked the right tour before it even started. Karon was our driver. He was wonderful! Not only did he ask us what we wanted to see but he made some great suggestions. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the island, the politics and other facts, which made for an intriguing and engaging conversation. After we went to the Rum Cake factory, the rum distillery, the chocolate factory and the Queen's steps we were heading to the beach. The other two people in our party wanted to go back to the ship so Karon dropped them off first and then took us to this gorgeous almost deserted beach. We enjoyed a very nice lunch, swam a little - it was a bit cold - and enjoyed some peace and relaxation in the sun. Karon got us back to the ship in time to board for dinner. I can't recommend this tour highly enough.
Incredible

Karon took the four of us on an amazing tour of Nassau. He has great knowledge and love for his people and country, and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. He has a great sense of humor and there was never a dull moment with him in the car. The snorkeling spot was beautiful. He took us to a private beach where we spent close to 3 hours by ourselves just swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing by the water. The excursion included lunch from the local surf shop that owned the beach. This trip was the most relaxing part of our vacation!
This excursion is a must , especially with Karon!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful Island with us!

What a pleasure it was to be given a personalized tour around Nassau by Tyrone Jr. He is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our family of four had a wonderful day in Nassau. We snorkeled at Love Beach and had the provided lunch at the bar. Food was tasty and staff was friendly and helpful. Can’t recommend this tour enough!

It was just me and my friend so we zoomed through all the activities. I loved our guide, he was smart and friendly and answered all our questions. I guess my expectation was a bit too high as far as the activities go. You walk in and out of the chocolate and rum cake factory. No tour like I thought there might be. The caves were walk in and out. They blocked off the majority of it because some stupid condos. The queens staircase was just that....a staircase. None of these were very impressive. The beach is when it got real iffy. The woman at the bar was rude. Rolling her eyes and gave us the wrong food order and then once we started eating, took it away. The beach was clean. It was cloudy that day so there was a damper. The tour is definitly not worth what we paid. Next time I'll go through Carnival as I usually have. They are more fun on those excursions. Very glad I met the guide though, he was the best part of the tour to be honest. I love booking through Viator but this was just a bummer tour. =(
