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.

Captain Ron was the absolute best. One of the best walking tour I’ve ever been on. Discussions of NBA, current politics, state of the world, all on top of giving great account of the history (and race relations) of the Bahamas. Amazing food, great weather, and great conversation the entire time. Due to Covid, unfortunately our final stop along the tour was closed but Captain Ron still brought along an item that we would’ve received at the stop. Would recommend this tour to anyone!

We had the privilege of being some of the first guests on this outstanding food tour since the start of COVID-19. They did a great job of serving us outstanding food from outdoor options while weaving in amazing stories about Nassau and the Bahamas. We learned as much as we ate, and it was all outstanding. While you can find many of these food options on your own, I would highly recommend doing this tour to get the full experience.
