Bites of Nassau - the original Bahamas food tour - celebrates native, Caribbean and multinational influences on both food and culture.  

These guided small group experiences stop at six tasting locations, each carefully chosen to highlight the local delicacies that are unique to downtown Nassau.  

Enough for a hearty lunch, food and drinks served throughout are designed to introduce you to authentic island flavors like fresh seafood (conch dishes prepared 3 ways), traditional steamed chicken with peas and rice, an iconic rum cocktail and, of course, rum cake!
