You should bring a camera if you want to take photos. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen especially on exposed parts of the body as well as a good pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons, it’s important to wear an extra layer of clothing or consider bringing a jacket as Freeport is our “Windy City” and the weather can be unpredictable at times.

We absolutely do! We can accommodate a variety of special requests (family reunions, birthday parties, out of town guests, corporate events, conventions, festivals, parades, grand openings, and more).

At this time, we do not offer tours in any other language except English.

For the Tea Tour and Cooking Tour, it is possible to enter Grum Ma’s House by wheelchair. For our Taste of the Bahamas Premium Food Tour and other day tours, not all locations are wheelchair accessible. There are also at least 6 steps to reach the deck at Buddies by the Bay.

The tours are held in rain or shine, or snow that we only had in 1977. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. However, we advise you to check the weather conditions for your day’s event and dress appropriately. The East End tour will end at McClean’s Town if adverse weather is severe and boat travel is impossible.
