Group Trip...Private Nassau City TourExplore > Bahamas > Nassau > Group Trip...Private Nassau City Tour
This complete view of Nassau and its highlights will show you why Nassau is a favorite.
As you tour this city, you will find its comfortably old-fashioned look very compatible with its title of capitol of the Bahamas. By-laws forbid the building of skyscrapers and the white and pink buildings have an elegant yet casual feeling.
Your tour will begin at the point of your pickup as the spot itself has historic significance. Among the sights you will see here are Rawson Square, House of Assembly and the Senate. Onto the Government House, home of the Governor-General, with the statue of Christopher Columbus at the top of George Street.
You will pass the site of Fort Nassau, which is now the Hilton British Colonial Hotel as you travel along the coastline and the famous Cable Beach first stopping at Fort Charlotte. This fort was built by Lord Dunmore in 1787 and here you will be able to tour the facility, including the dungeons.
Your travel continues through the lovely residential area called Skyline Drive and passed the many hotels lining Cable Beach. You will take a drive through the native section of Nassau and then visit Fort Fincastle and Queen's Castle, where those interested can walk down the famous 66 steps. We will pick you up at the bottom!
Those who choose to will have the opportunity to visit Ardastra Gardens. This beautiful 6-acre botanical garden and zoo has displayed indigenous flora and fauna and allows you to feed the parrots. We will deliver you to the Ardastra Gardens in time to participate in the feeding and also to witness the famous Marching Flamingoes, who are trained to move at the sound of a whistle. Admission to Ardastra is included in your tour.
On your return, you will travel east just a bit to see Fort Montagu and Montagu Beach. You may be dropped off at Atlantis on Paradise Island, and your return will be on your own, or you will be returned to the cruiseship pier.
You should wear comfortable shoes, although you will not be walking a great deal. Bring your camera!
There is a minimum of 20 people needed to operate this tour. You MUST have your own group of 10, as we do not match with other passengers.
Admission to Ardastra Gardens, Fort Charlotte is included. If you would like to tour Fort Fincastle watertower, there is a $5 admission.
