Explore Nassau

This Nassau tour gives you a great overview and understanding of modern day Nassau through the lens of history, starting with the Lucayan Arawaks.

The original inhabitants of the Bahamas, the Lucayans were the first natives to encounter Christopher Columbus on his travels to the Americas. Learn about their peaceful, primitive culture and their ultimate demise at the hands of the early Western colonizers.

At your Nassau excursion, you will make your way to Fort Fincastle, built in 1793 and used as a bastion of defense with 12 canons and 1 howitzer among its armament. In later years it served as a lighthouse to guide naval traffic in its waters.

While here, take a few minutes to ascend the 66 limestone steps of the Queen's Staircase named in honor of Queen Victoria. Built by 18th century slaves, this staircase allegedly connected the fort to Nassau City.

In Rawson Parliament Square you will be surrounded by flamingo-pink government houses with a distinctly colonial feel. Hear about the Bahamian system of government and take a photo of Queen Victoria's statue before heading over to Port overlook.

This tour is perfect for those who enjoy touring in small, intimate groups and want an up close and personal look at Nassau.
