It was really windy and the boat ride was a little sketchy. We really enjoyed going to the different locations around the Bahamas, one sport we saw sea turtles, the next we saw a coral reef and lots and lots of fish, and the the last stop was a the most beautiful beach you could ever wish to visit. We loved our Excursion. Read Less

We took the "Top 10" tour. The description said we would get several free samples at the stops we made. The first was a rum cake factory. small and crowded and the samples were less than a mouthful. You could taste a few of the dozen or more different flavors. Next was a Rum distillery which also had a sample - a mouthful of pina colada, then to the tasting room where it was $10 per person to sample. A stop at Atlantis resort was ok, but you are limited as to where you could go and what you could do without paying for a day pass. Fort Fincastle and the Queens staircase was the next stop and there were many vendors, but prices are lower by the port. Last stop was the Fish Fry area where we did get a decent free Bahama Mama drink, and paid for a pretty nice lunch. Read Less

Upon getting off the ship, it was raining pretty hard, so we ended up swarming to the tour operators that had open vans since there was nothing else to do. We toured with Kung Fu Mitch - we saw a couple tourist shops which amused me very little, and proceeded to see some of the government buildings and local sites. We stopped at the Queen's Staircase and Atlantis, and Mitch was nice enough to get everyone in the van Bahamian currency. The tour was $60. I'm glad we did something, but I wouldn't do it again. Skip the tourist shops. Nassau doesn't have a lot to do unless you're willing to spend a lot of money to book an excursion. Beautiful country, wonderful people, but really not that great as a port of call. Read Less

Cheryl's Taxi blew off our longstanding reservation, then to add insult to injury, they blamed US for their no-show. We're experienced travelers and cruisers, and this has never happened before. We booked a island tour on the roadside, which was a mistake. He drove us to a shop that sells the same rum cake you can buy anywhere, then to a tea shop that claimed to cure cancer (!?!), then to Atlantis, where I guess we were supposed to...wander around the hotel lobby? The only real landmark we saw was the old fort and the Queen's Steps, which was neat. We asked to see the John Watlings Distillery decided to stay, tipped the driver, got some drinks, then walked back to port. I definitely wouldn't recommend anyone do an island tour of Nassau. Actually, I wouldn't recommend anyone even go to Nassau. Read Less

Did the Land and Sea excursion. The sea portion was a lot of fun. Our guide was funny and personable. There was rum punch included. We saw lots of the island and port. The land portion was nice, but not very interesting. We drove through town and the driver pointed out a couple of things. We stopped at the fort for 20 minutes. Five of which were taken up by trying to get into the public restroom. Then a quick walk to the Queens Staircase, which has been paved and bricked so it is just a set of outdoor stairs. Then back to the van for a drive to Atlantis. We stopped there for half an hour and you could either meet back at the pickup point or choose to get off the tour there. If you missed it, they assumed you were staying. It was a nice overview of Nassau for my first stop there, but it could have been so much better. Read Less

Fairly disorganized at first but the guide was friendly and offered some information about Nassau's history. It was a little humdrum. Nassau is probably best enjoyed on the water, so a bus tour isn't what I would recommend.
