    What to Expect
    Your unforgettable immersion into Bahamian culture will commence when you meet your pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional tour guide opposite the cruise terminal in morning or afternoon. Your anticipation and excitement will build as you start on a journey that will certainly be fun and fulfilling.  

    Each one of your senses will be tantalized as you experience the rich, Bahamian culture. Smell and taste the delicious and refreshing natural herbal remedies that the natives have enjoyed for hundreds of years at Tasty Teas, ranked #1 in the Bahamas for teas. Enjoy free samples of the Bahamas' very own version of authentic pina colada, made freshly just for you at the John Watling's Rum Distillery, and take a 10-minute guided tour of the historical facility, once owned by one of the island's Royal Governors and used as a scene in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale. 

    At the next stop you will enjoy a thrilling panoramic view of the island from its highest point where the Fort Fincastle was erected to protect the city and harbor. You can peruse this area and shop at a local straw market. The sights and sounds at the the 'Statue of Liberty of the Bahamas', The Queen's Staircase, will intrigue you as you learn more about the hard working slaves who, when freed, chose to carve out the stairs in gratitude to the queen for their liberation.  

    Next, you are in for a sweet treat...literally! Get ready to taste the best rum cake you have ever had! The sweet aroma of the Original Rum Cake Factory will greet you and the taste will be something to write home about.  

    Finally, experience one of the modern eight wonders of the world with the largest hotel property in the Caribbean, Atlantis, at the end of your tour. Your tour guide will take you back to the cruise terminal in the downtown area while giving you even more fun facts about the beautiful islands. It will be sad to say goodbye at the end of the tour, as this tour promises to be one that you would not forget, but hopefully you will be back again soon!

    We booked our tour through their website about an hour before it started and encountered only 1 issue, the driver loaded everyone up about 10 minutes early so we barely caught him in time, our fault for booking last minute but you may want to get to the meeting place about 30

    Yes, isn't the Queen's Staircase amazing? It is my personal favorite! Thanks so much for choosing Marvelous Tours to show you our beautiful island and share its rich culture and history with you on our Bahama Bonanza tour! 15 minutes before the tour start time is early enough to come to the meeting place, but it sounds like you had some extra early birds on your tour who were super excited to start the tour and came extra early...that works too! lol Hope to see you again soon and we can show you some other cool parts of our island on your next trip to New Providence!

    Our tour was on time. We ended up as the only 2 people on our tour, which was great! We saw plenty of tour buses where the people were packed in like sardines. Jeremy was funny and informative. We leisurely walked through the parts of our tours and did not feel pressured to buy

    This weekend we took a cruise to Nassau, Bahamas. Looking for things to do when getting off the ship we searched trip advisor to find things to do asides from the typical excursions offered by the cruise line. Best decision ever. Thank you Marvelous tours. Our tour guide Marvin
