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.

Lisa was great! It was a hot tour but we are in the Bahamas. Lisa was knowledgeable and the food was fantastic. The stories and history shared were great. We had a fantastic time.

Will was a really friendly, knowledgeable guide who shared lots of information about Bahamian culture. Plenty of water provided and toilet breaks along the way, not a long or difficult walk - all very close to downtown. Left with a satisfied belly but not too stuffed. Highly recommend!

Captain Ron was great!! The tour was engaging for the whole family, including two kids! He found a way to tie the food with the history of the people which made the tour very meaningful for us.

Mark is amazing! From his personality to the knowledge he has. He was so informative and his life experiences have been amazing. He has traveled and is so diverse which made this excursion very pleasant. You will definitely walk away from this not only satisfied with the food but with some more knowledge. Thanks again for a pleasant tour Mark!
