Key West
City Trolley / Conch Train Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
We stopped in Key West in exchange for Grand Turk, due to the Gastroenteritis in Grand Turk. This was a pleasant stop due to I not visiting there in over ten years. I booked the cruise for Grand Turk and was bummed that we did not go. We took the Conch Train tour, which was expensive, but my 4 yr old wanted to go on the train. Learned a few things, overall an OK tour, not worth the price. Tried Conch fritters at some place that was recommended and they were awesome, Key lime pie anywhere was good, it's PIE!

Island Tour Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
We did our own tour with a cab driver and he was extremely expensive $120 for 2 hours for 4 people with no tip. He took us off the beaten path which was cool but again not worth the price. We saw two different waterfalls one on somebodies property that we had to give a donation for climbing and the other at the Ruins restaurant for another donation and another donation to view the gardens. Our driver to local restaurant for jerk chicken or pork and they ran out, he took us to local fish market for Fish fry, we bought fried tuna and me and my 13 yr old loved it. The Jamaicans are very pushy in your face, everyone looking for a dollar from your pocket. One kid did flips down the mountain in the rode in front of our cab, we had to give it up to him, he surly entertained, we were amazed. Others had crafts, pushing them in your face while driving in the cab. We had to let our driver to put the windows up and drive and we would let him know when we wanted something. Prepare for donations everywhere.

Nassau
Island Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
This was a first for us and we found this to be the best deal for $75 for a 2 hour tour for 4 people. Our driver showed us the sites and gave us history and taught us about the culture and lifestyle of the Bahamas, shout out to Lennox. She showed us how to get conch out of the shells and how they are cooked, he took us to the fort and the Queen staircase, Paradise Island for a quick Atlantis peak. Just to go inside Atlantis was over $30, not even to use the facility. We played one quick game in the casino. Last stop was he dropped us at the beach and restaurants for Fish fry, the beach was not that nice, the water was beautiful, but the sand was grainy and stuck to you. Most of the shops were closed for Good Friday, but overall a nice stop.
