Description

Begin your adventure in downtown Nassau and follow your guide as you stroll to some of the most historic landmarks and sites in town. Walk up to the top of Elizabeth Avenue for a 15-minute stop at the famous Queen’s Staircase, a major limestone staircase that consists of 66 steps. Here you will get the chance to capture its majestic beauty with your camera as your guide shares the history of this 18th-century staircase, including how 600 slaves constructed it in honor of Queen Victoria’s assistance in abolishing slavery in the Bahamas. Continue up Elizabeth Avenue for a five-minute stop at Nassau’s tallest structure, the historic 126-foot Water Tower that supplied water to the island of New Providence back in the early 20th century. Next, your tour will take you to the top of Bennet’s Hill to spend 15 minutes at Fort Fincastle, a fort built in the late 18th century to protect Nassau from pirates. Next, grab your cameras for the chance to take beautiful pictures of the exterior of the Government House. During a 10-minute stop, your tour guide will share tales from this historic site’s past as you admire the architectural excellence of this Georgian Colonial-style residence of the Bahamas’ Governor-General. Now that you have worked up an appetite, make a stop at Graycliff Chocolatier and indulge in a sampling of these locally made delicious treats. Next, tour the galleries of the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas and learn about the history of Junkanoo at the Educulture Museum. Afterwards, you will travel to John Watling's Distillery where you may sample rum and tour the facility. From here your next will stop at Tasty Teas where you will learn about the Bahamian bush teas and traditional medicines. Next up is the Nassau Straw Market for a brief history and shopping break. The last stop is at Rawson and Parliament Square where you can learn about the history of the buildings and statues from the colonial era up to present day.
