Highlights
    What to Expect
    Disembark your cruise ship in Nassau and meet your local guide a few blocks from the cruise port, along with your small group of 10 people or less. Head out on foot to your first stop, Smuggler's Beer Garden, where you'll sample your first rum of the day.

    Walk through downtown Nassau to visit three other local businesses, where you'll chat with the proprietors about their craft as you sample savory snacks, rum cocktails and rum-infused candies. Taste the local favorite snack, conch fritters, and a special Bahamian guava dessert.

    Listen to your guide's entertaining stories about the island's rum-running history as you walk past historical buildings in town — all of which played a part in the bootlegging industry.

    End up at John Watling's Distillery on Buena Vista Estate. Tour the distillery to learn about the rum-making process and the legend of 17th-century pirate John Watling himself.

    Return to your starting point in plenty of time to catch your departing ship.

    We have been to Nassau before and didn't want to do the beach or Atlantis etc. When I saw this excursion, I figured it might be fun. We met Julio at the Pirate Republic Brewery. He was sweet and very well versed on so many topics! The brewery was obviously our first venue. Julio

    What's a tour without lots of rum and good food to keep you going?! Thanks for strolling with us and we're so happy that you enjoyed the "private" tour. We're sure this made some people jealous. We are glad you enjoyed your time with us and appreciate your recommendation very much.

    My wife and I had a great tour that was led by Mikey! The drinks and food were fun but the best part of the trour was Mikey showing us around and sharing the local history. If the rest of the guides are half as good as ours you can't go wrong.

    My friend and I did the Rum and History Walking Tour with Mikey as an excursion on our cruise. This was HANDS DOWN my favorite part of our trip. We were with our recently graduated daughters and all four of us had a wonderful time. The rum was great (of course) but so was the

    The food is very cultural and tasty. Learned about the history of various historical buildings. The banks and shops also had a history.

    Thanks so much for deciding to go exploring (and tasting) with us while on your trip. We love that you enjoyed a part of the tour that many don't mention in their memories - the straw market and historical buildings! It sounds like you are a history lover. Hope your new adventures are just as enjoyable.
