What to Expect

All of our tours start at Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center, which we founded to preserve and share the fascinating details of our Bahamian heritage. We will then explore the Mermaid Pond, a stunning freshwater pond that has naturally formed a connection to the sea by an underwater cavern.

Following this, we will head to historical settlements of Pinder’s Point, Lewis Yard, Hunter’s, and McTown (Freeport), learning about Bahamian history and traditions on the way.

Our final location will be Buddies by the Bay, a rustic and charming structure perfect to enjoy a home-cooked Bahamian meal including bottled water and Bahamian soft drinks. This is the perfect way to discover the Bahamian history, its people, and food, away from the tourist crowds!

Frequently Asked Questions

Please be sure to let us know if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergies, etc.) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we will seek to accommodate your needs.

Yes. IDs are not required, we will take your word for it. Schools are accepted too!

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).

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.

You should bring a camera with you. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen especially on exposed parts of the body and 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”. Freeport, Bahamas weather can be unpredictable at times.

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, not all locations are wheelchair accessible. There are also at least 6 steps to reach the deck at Buddies by the Bay.
