Fun rum walking tour.
Great tour. Visited several businesses in Nassau that included the distillery, winery, chocolate, cigar and rum cake shops on the tour. Arrived in Nassau via cruise ship and felt this tour would
likely offer a smaller group tour than those offered by the cruise company. Tour group was comprised of two couples and the tour guide. Highly recommend this tour. Debated over whether to take a taxi versus walking from the cruise terminal to the starting point of the tour at the distillery. Ended up walking and had no problems. Was about a 15 to 20 minute walk a bit uphill. Would walk again.
A great way to spend the day!

This is truly a great day! Our tour guide FOX was full of history and told us everything in such an interesting way. All 4 of us truly enjoyed each of the stops and learned along the way.
Hands down the best and most authentic Nassau tour! Our tour guide Reg was the absolutely amazing! We had the best time. Do not miss out on this incredible experience!!!
Net, our guide, was great. She was informative and entertaining. We had a lot of fun. Some of the Rum was very good. But they explained the "OK" run is really a mixing rum. Even had a couple of snacks which was an added bonus. Chocolate was amazing.
Great tour guide!
Net, our tour guide, was fantastic! She was upbeat, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend both her and this tour.
Book this tour and ask for Fox!!!

We don’t usually book excursions when we go to Nassau. So glad we decided to book one this time and glad we booked this one. Well worth the money. Fox was amazing!!! He had a wonderful personality and was very knowledgeable. He never missed a beat. He made sure we all stayed together and made sure everyone was ok. This tour was the highlight of our trip. I definitely recommend this tour!!! The food and drinks were delicious!!! Book this tour!!!
Fox was an enthusiastic...
Fox was an enthusiastic and informed tour guide. We had a great time learning about pirates, rum, and Bahamian history.
Do yourself a favor and take this tour and make sure you request Shad. He was outstanding. Besides slinging drinks to us frequently his repor with the group and knowledge of the history of the island was top notch. 100% amazing time and would do again.
Fun Tour Rum Tour
This is a great way to see a bit of Nassau and learn some of the history of The Bahamas whilst drinking amazing rum and tasting some local delicacies. Our tour guide Shad was fantastic, full of fun facts and kept us all intrigued for the entire tour.
Sammy and Net were amazing tour guides! I felt so comfortable talking with them and learning about the different rums made on the island. It was a great experience and very delicious! I plan to go back to the food and rum businesses on my own for souvenirs and treats to take home!
Great rum tour with Fox!

We signed up for this tour because this was our first time in the Bahamas, and we had no impression of Nassau outside of the resort. It ended up being a memorable adventure with some interesting history lessons, and of course excellent rum and delicious rum treats! Also happy to note that cabs are plentiful on the island (we took a cab from Baha Mar to the Watling distillery to start the tour, and then to Goldie’s at the Fish Fry afterwards). Definitely recommend.
Great walking tour
Great tour - covered a variety of locations and interest (rum, wine, tobacco, chocolate and conch fritters! Sammy and Net were great hosts, would recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience a little variety of the island.
Informative and fun. Fox is an amazing guide.
We were a small group but Fox was enthusiastic and so informative. The food was tailored to accommodate an allergy in our group and a no meat request of the other participants. It was more walking than I anticipated, but there were frequent breaks and seats available as needed to rest. Would definitely recommend this tour!
Just Another Sunny Day
Awesome tour guides Chad and Sami made it a tour to remember, thank you.l for that. Although it was a walking tour there were plenty opportunities to stop and most of the walking was down hill.

Excellent tour guide and tour
What a fun tour! We had 6 people in a 9 person group. Our tour guide, Fox, was amazing. He kept us well-entertained and taught us about the island's history, Pirates, rum, food and culture. He was funny and quick the whole 3.5 hrs. Highly recommended.
Interesting. Tour guide, Shad, was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Plenty of Rum and some other treats. Exceeded my expectations
Great Tour Guide!
We enjoyed this tour a lot! Our favorite part was our tour guide, Fox. He was very knowledgeable about the area and really set the vibe for the group to have a great time.
We had so much fun during this tour. We had a amazing guide his name is Fox. Great smile and totally loved his job. This tour was very informative and lots of fun sampling all different kinds of drinks with different types of rum. Fox was a lot of fun and also is a very good piano player. We are so glad we did this tour with Fox. Thank you will be back to the Bahamas again what a beautiful island.
Nassau Rum Walking Tour

This was an excellent walking tour. Good value for your money. You could try out 3 different rum drinks throughout the tour. There were also some food samples along the way that were delicious. As you walk, you go to different venues and learn a lot about the Bohemian culture and trades.
Shad the guide and the rum made for a great day in the Bahamas and an unforgettable experience
Shad was an incredible tour guide! Fantastic story teller with humor and history. Made sure we had everything we needed at each stop. Answered plenty of questions and gave us time at each place to enjoy the samples.
All the places we went were great and had an all around blast. Shad was the best but the overall your was excellent as well. The stops were fun and unique and all the rum was delicious!
Joe L, 04-01-2023
Awesome Tour! Tour guide was great and the stops we made along the way had great drinks and snacks. We were in Nassau as a stop on cruise and this tour gave us so much to do and try in the little time we had
Rum tastings with a tour mixed in!
Shad did a great job explaining Pirate History in the Bahamas. The tour was very informative and fun. Plenty of opportunities for rum consumption also!
This tour was so much fun! Our guide, Fox, was fantastic! Very knowledgeable of Bahamian history, great storyteller, and hilarious! The Watling Distillery tour was very interesting and other stops included Graycliff cigar shop and chocolate shop and a small museum where we were greeted with conch fritters and a rum tasting. Highly recommend!
This was an excellent tour! Shad is very knowledgeable in Island history. The tour was more than expected and a wonderful way to check out Nassau. Everything advertised in description was included plus little more. The conch fritters are out of this world. What is nice is stopping at various venues with no pressure to buy anything yet still having opportunity to do so. Just want to thank Shad and I am the one who changed name to Frank during tour
Fun and informative tour. Shad was an amazing tour guide. Lots of laughs, great drinks, and good memories made. Thank you Shad!!
Great time seeing Nassau! Our guide, Shad, was entertaining, informative, the absolute best tour guide! The distillery, drinks, food, history, chocolate, mixology, all fantastic. Highly recommend!
It was a fun afternoon
Having made several trips to Nassau over the years, my wife and I were looking for something different to do as a shore excursion on this cruise. We have had great experiences with Viator walking tours in other cities and this one met our expectations.
Fox, our guide, was entertaining, knowledgable and made for a very interesting walk around Nassau. Only minor difficulty - There were 14 in our walking tour and it was difficult at times to hear Fox as we were spread out while walking single file on the road. Otherwise it was a fun time.
For those working this into a cruise stop, it’s a pretty nice little hike from the cruise port to the distillery meeting point and up a moderate hill. Take that into account from the time you exit the ship. My wife and I walked it and between the to and from the tour and the tour itself, we clocked in 5 miles. The tour itself lasted 3 hours.
Nassau fun and Rum Tasting
Net was fantastic. Th Rum was tasting was great and allowed us to enjoy all that Nassau has to offer but Net the experience even better! Would recommend to all my friends for something in Nassau with fun and culture and no heavy shopping.
