Alexan... Again thank you for taking the chance on Diane and me when you could easily have taken any other tour. While we may not stand out through marketing we stand out through giving you an experience that as we say is truly a Bahamian souvenir. Appreciate your review and taking the time to actually give us one. Blessings.

Karl I am just seeing this as there was no alert given that the review was made.I thank you for you review and providing other options to our tour as this will certainly help the other tour operators. This is not a low budget tour as you stated as we try to give you more of a Bahamian experience than the usual tourist tour. When you compare what is included, I am sure you would agree that for the time and value included this is a best priced tour. Donald D.
