Throughout my life, growing up in The Bahamas and traveling around the world, I developed an appreciation for seeking out authentic experiences through food and culture. Inspired to share my own country’s cuisine, I launched Tru Bahamian Food Tours in 2012 on a mission to connect visitors with Nassau’s most locally adored foods. The incredible things that make our island nation one-of-a-kind is what I want to share with you on this walking food tour of historic downtown Nassau.

You could call me a passionate foodie but you have yet to meet our team of local experts and tour guides: Anna, Murray, Will, Ron, Mark, Lisa, and Princess. They’ll wow you with their vast knowledge of Bahamian history, culture and food traditions while leading you throughout the city to various tasting locations for unforgettable and distinctly Bahamian fare.

Princess was such a wonderful guide and the entire experience was lovely! We had a small group of four on our tour. The food was absolutely delicious and this was such a bargain price for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

Mark was a fantastic guide and this tour was easily one of ur most favorite parts about our trip. He was very knowledgable about everything Bahamian related- not just the food! We were able to experience so many parts and places that we would not have gone to otherwise.

Mark was a wonderful guide - we had a blast, learned a ton, and left with full bellies - what more could you ask for?!

One of our highlight in Nassau. We got to try various food and learn about the history of Nassau / Bahama. If you can only choose one activity in Nassau, choose this one

This one one of the best “bang for your buck” experiences that we did in the Bahamas! My husband and I adored Captain Ron and all of the eateries that he took us to. The personal stories from Captain Ron were what really made this experience special and brought everyone together. This is a “can’t miss” experience in Nassau!
