Join us on a guided walking tour that will give you a great overview and understanding of modern day Nassau through the lens of history! Check in with your guide at the Cruise Port and receive your very own wireless headset before heading out on a leisurely walk through the beautiful Caribbean city of Nassau! On this tour, you’ll learn all about the rich history of the island from your qualified tour guide and your headset will allow you to go at your own pace while listening to your guide give you all the information about each historic attraction you’ll visit. One of the topics you’ll learn about on this island tour will be the Lucayan Arawaks. Being the original inhabitants of the Bahamas, the Lucayans were the first natives to encounter Christopher Columbus on his travels to the Americas. You will learn all about their peaceful, primitive culture as well as their demise at the hands of the early Western colonizers. On this tour, you will also get a chance to visit Fort Fincastle, built in 1793 and used as a bastion of defense with 12 cannons and 1 howitzer among its armament. Afterwards, you’ll ascend the 66 limestone steps of the world-famous Queen’s Staircase named in honor of Queen Victoria. Up next, you’ll visit the Rawson Parliament Square where you will be surrounded by flamingo-pink government houses with a distinctly colonial feel of Bahamian architecture. Hear all about the Bahamian system of government and take a photo by Queen Victoria’s statue before heading over to the Port overlook for a stunning view and photo opportunity.
This option is perfect for those wanting to enjoy a historic tour in small, personal groups with wireless headsets looking for an up close and personal look at the city of Nassau.
