What to Expect
Meet your guide at the cruise port to start your Nassau sightseeing tour. Board an air-conditioned coach and explore the area around Bay Street. Visit historic landmarks, such as the House of Parliament and Rawson Square. Then stop at Fort Fincastle to see its massive water tower and walk down the Queen’s Staircase, a 102-foot (31-meter) limestone staircase. Shop for souvenirs and visit the original Bahamas Rum Cake Factory to try this popular Bahamian dessert. That leaves just enough time to pop into the 5-star Atlantis resort before heading back to the cruise port to end your tour.

I would give them zero stars. I booked a downtown tour through Expedia with big mama tours but everything was closed due to pandemic. They would not refund anything. Why would you advertise it if you know most of the attractions in downtown are closed? Why would you take payment

*My original review on 3/4/2020*: “I have to rate low since the start of the tour was missed and I was unable to join the tour at any other point in the itinerary. The only reason I give a poor and not terrible rating is because I was able to contact the tour operator via

Response from Bigmama242, Owner at Nassau Bahamas Highlights Tour
Responded 7 Mar 2020
Hello dear, your opinion is greatly appreciated. As we use these reviews for problem solving and not to point the finger. We are very accommodating to our clients at all times. We do have a no refund policy, however I have refunded many clients based upon their individual circumstances. I investigated this situation as I pay close attention to these matters and I realized a few things via your review and the the evidence provided my office. You first contact via what's app was at 930am and you were still at the ship. 930am tours are pulling off. 9:45am you saw the fountain, you didn't say you were at the fountain, which gives you a few more mins to get there, which would ring you to 10am or close to it. The first stop is complete before 10am. It's one standard Tour so the stops are the same every day all day. Having a uniform doesn't make us creditable or not. We perform our duties with or without uniform. We provide a Service. We also provide accurate and up to date contact information for any Client to reach us during operating hours. I believe that's how you were able to speak with a Rep and note a recording! With that being said sorry you missed the Tour. Thank you for choosing Bigmama's Tours

When we first got there at the meeting point there was no one there, no signs no nothing. A lady came out of the building beside the fountain speaking with a few couples nearby and started to leave. At this point a second lady came out and we asked her if this was our tour group

Big Mama was a lot of fun and gave great information. Very personalized tour! She was kind enough to drop us off a little off the beaten path afterwards and even came back to return an item my son had left in her van.
