All reviews fort fincastle water tower escape route queen victoria princess margaret stair case hand carved piece of history interesting history history lesson worth seeing walk up nice walk tour guide bahamian history cruise port walking tour
We visited the Queen's Staircase on Thursday, 10/4. All I can say is wow. This place is a site to behold. As you walk down the stairs and around Fort Fincastle you feel as though you've been taken back in time. This is a beautiful...More
The craftsmanship for the time this stairway was built is awesome. I'm not sure (self-guided tour) if the water fall was an added feature or original, but it compliments the staircase very nicely. Do not plan this trip as a full day event. My suggestion...More
Jullian, of Marvelous Tours picked us up at the Stafford Sands fountain, near the port. Super nice guy, ended up a friend. Us, being my adult daughter Danielle (28), and me Charlie.( Slightly older than 28!!)We visited several forts, the Queen's staircase. Pretty much covered...More
It's a "walk through" historical site. No charge. Lots of island vegitation. It's an old escape tunnel carved in the rock in the pirate days. The staircase was carved out of the rock to honor Queen Victoria. One step for each year she lived. Very...More
Definitely a place to see but locating the actual pathway to the stairs was a little challenging. However, the locals and the nearby hospital staff are beyond kind and very helpful to lost travelers. It was very clean and a great place to get some...More
We went to see the staircase. It is a free site, but were stopped short by a native Bahamian who insisted we listen to his long. over blown story about 5000 slaves, men, women and children, who were worked 18 hours days, not feed and...More

We did a self guided tour and depending on what you want to see we thought the self guided walking tour we did was worth it. We are not in the best shape and we were ok LOL The heat was the only complaint to that walk LOL We were sweating profusely! There are areas with no sidewalks and cars will run your butt over if you don’t watch yourself. But seriously google what to see and walk around. The straw market was unimpressive and they are very pushy, but do go check out the Queen Anne’s Staircase and you’ll want to spend that dollar at the bottom of the staircase to buy that nice ice cold water from the nice lady selling stuff. Go to the Bahamas Historical Society the young girl is full of info and the older woman is very lovely and had so much to share. She was very pleasant to listen to and they really went out of their way to share with us and answer all our questions, we left a very nice donation on our way out. Check out the Library also, it use to be an old jail. YES we felt safe everywhere we walked!
