the tour was informative and well organized. Christa knew what she was doing and although she was injured, she was in a good mood and was highly motivated. She explained everything and answered questions in detail. We got an all-round insight into the city of Nassau and parts of its historical story. I can recommend the 4 hour tour.

We absolutely loved our tour with Christa! She was so personable and knowledgeable. She shared so much of the history of the area and region. She encouraged questions, followed interests of the group, and was wonderful in sharing recommendations for the remainder of our week in Nassau! We would highly recommend Christa!
