Explore Nassau’s tropical streets by scooter and get to know Bahamian culture on this guided tour. Stop off at historical landmarks like the Queen’s Staircase and Fort Fincastle, savor the spicy aromas of the Rum Cake Factory and learn about the history of Junkanoo at the National Art Gallery. The first stop will be at Rawson Square, named after a former governor of the island, before you move on to the Rum Cake Factory. Here you’ll learn about the unique flavors and techniques that go into making this classic Caribbean delicacy. Next, you’ll head on to Fort Fincastle, stopping first to admire the dramatic Queen’s Staircase, which is made of 65 steps of solid limestone carved into the hillside. The fort itself was built in the 18th century to protect Nassau harbor from pirates and offers spectacular views out over the water. After this, the tour will make its way to Bahama Barrels, the first winery in the Bahamas, and on to the National Art Gallery. Here, you’ll be able to learn about Junkanoo, a Bahamian street parade, and admire the collection of colorful clothing and masks worn by the dancers.
