Away from the tourist hotspots sits the historic city of Nassau, with its colonial government buildings, famous Queen's Staircase, native Straw Market and much more. Led by a knowledgeable guide, discover the city's rich history, vibrant culture and colourful blend of old-world charm and modern beauty.
Venture to the heart of Nassau and learn about the Bahamian music and food that bring this lively culture together. The Bahamas is a deep-rooted nation whose influences come from England, Spain and West Africa, creating a unique island spirit unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere in the world. Arrive at the centre of town and see the colonial-style Parliament House, the Government house, stately legislative buildings and law courts.
Stroll through Fort Charlotte, a hillside British colonial-era fort with a long history of war. Along your journey, hear stories about the hundreds of pirates who set out to the New World and found Nassau's wealth of gold and natural resources.
Walk down the city's famous limestone staircase, known as Queen's Staircase, which honours Queen Victoria's efforts to abolish slavery in the Bahamas. The tour concludes just past Gregory's Arch, built in 1901, at the Straw Market of Nassau – a traditional craft-fair market that offers distinctive Bahamian souvenirs.
