Dive into Nassau's rich history and culture! With KINDWalk you will explore more than just the surface of Nassau's tourist spots.
Our tour takes you on a journey through the city highlighting many often overlooked details and venues. Get a list of recommendations to revisit after your tour or for the remainder of your trip. Discover local landmarks like the Queen's Staircase, Fort Fincastle, and Christ Church Cathedral and sample the local tastes while learning the stories behind them all.

You'll learn about the customs, traditions, and folklore that shape the Bahamian identity while getting to know your guide through storytelling. At the end of your tour, you will have become what we like to call "Stranger Friends" and you can tell all your family and friends back home that you have at least one Bahamian friend.

On the tour we will visit: 

  • Parliament Square
  • The Queen's Staircase

Christa did a great tour around Nassau. Although it was raining the first part of the walking tour she compensated it with a nice charisma, charm and a lot of competence. She provides interesting information and was always open for questions and provided good answers. We loved her company and style of explaining the history of the Bahamas, Nassau and mixed with personal stories, heritage and a fun facts! Good Job! We really appreciate her tour and can recommend it! Thanks for the good tour!

My teenage son and I had a great time getting to know Nassau a lot better with Christa's help. We've been there many times on cruise ships but never learned more than the basics about it. She told us a lot of the history and cool/important sites, but also told us about her history and told us unusual/off the beaten track info too. We had a great time and can't recommend her tour highly enough.
