We decided to each pay more 108.50 and booked this 3-1/2 hour tour because it seemed the most comprehensive one offered. Our first indication of a problem came when we received confirmation of the booked tour which indicated we would be picked up just outside the cruise terminal. But it also stated that we would have to make an international phone call to confirm the pickup location. We called Viator and they couldn't tell us if the international call was necessary but offered to make the call and promised to get back to us to confirm the cruise terminal pickup location, however, we never heard back from Viator so took our chances and went out and found the tour group. We were given VIP wristbands but no souvenir and were assigned to a driver who had no water in the van. We became concerned when the tour leader asked the driver if had done this tour before - he indicated he had but had to ask when the tour should end you'd think if he had done this tour before he should know. The driver was very courteous and seemed know about the history of the Bahamas and Nassau. We visited some of the listed sights and were dropped off at various locations with little or no instruction except that we should be back at the van at a certain time. We were dropped off at the Baha Mar Casino and Hotel where we were told we could go see the Aquarium, but when we got there we were declined admission without a day pass and no one recognized the wristbands we had been given. We had to remind the driver that we were supposed to stop at the Cloister which it didn't appear he was planning on, but he did make the stop at our request. We never saw the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre, stop at a local fruit stand, travel along the Cable Beach, 'enjoy a complimentary refreshing fruit daiquiri' from the daiquiri shack. We were dropped off at the Graycliff Chocolate Factory for a tour and no further instruction and ended up with a chocolate making tour which we were pulled out of half way through unless we agreed to paid an additional fee, which we didn't. Apparently we were supposed to be given some sort of tour of the chocolate factory which was supposed to include chocolate tasting, which didn't happen. We also never saw The Cave of the New Providence. Our tour ended after a little more than two hours - not quite the 3-1/2 hours promised. Overall this tour was not as promised and was a big disappointment and a poor value. I wouldn't recommend paying 108.50 unless all that was promised is delivered. Our tour was worth a great deal less than we were charged. If done as promised and advertised this should be a great tour, but the delivery was not as expected.
Great tour with Tyrone! Highly recommend! There was just six of us and he personalized the tour to what we wanted to see. Do not miss the Cloister gardens and the Queen Victoria stairs beautiful surroundings, also the stop at a fabulous beach. The tour of the rum place and the samples were awesome but not the Chocolate factory - which was no fault of Tyrone. He never rushed us and got us back on time to the ship.
We were met at the designated meeting place and within ten minutes we were introduced to our driver who was a very charming and proud Bahamian. As we visited the various sites such as The Rum Cake Factory, Atlantis resort, Queen's steps and The Pirate museum, our driver gave us a wide range of information: political, historical, social and economic not forgetting culinary.There were so many photo opportunities that I thought my camera would expire.A wonderful tour and it gives you a real feel of the Bahamas. Thank you Trevor and Arthur-it was wonderful.
Finding the meetup place was easy and well organized. The guy in charge made sure we were well hydrated and updated about how many people we would be waiting for and when we would leave. If you're looking for a super guided tour with loads of information, this may not be for you. You are driven to the points of interest and given some time to explore on your own. You're not given much background on the areas. Also, we were unable to tour the chocolate factory which we were very much looking forward to. We should have at least gone somewhere else to make up for it.
This was an amazing tour! Well worth the money. Mr. Wilson, the tour operator found us almost immediately after we left the cruise terminal, saving us from a continued barrage of vendors. It was just my husband and I and we had a private tour guide for the day. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided various historical tidbits as we drove along between sites. Our guide had a storytelling voice that made the tour that much more enjoyable--very much like a Bahamian James Earl Jones. The guide was a gentleman--he would help me out of the van and go ahead of us to pay the admission for the various sites. He would then tell us where to go/what to do and where we could meet him when we were finished with that particular tour.
It was a great day! Though it did run over the estimated three hour time, it was worth every extra minute. Truly a great tour!
