Unfortunately not! Our Bites of Nassau Food Tour is offered Mon-Sat only and not available on Bahamian Public Holidays. We’d love to host our tours on Sundays and local Public Holidays but the majority of businesses here The Bahamas close down on Sundays and Public Holidays- including the majority of our tour partner tasting locations. This means that it is impossible for us to run our tours on those days of the year.

From time to time, it is possible for us to host Private Group Tours or Private Cooking Classes on Sundays as an alternative option- please fill out a Private Group Request Form with your specific date request and we’ll response within 48 hours.

We apologize if we aren’t able to accommodate you in this case and hopefully we’ll be lucky enough to host you here in Nassau at sometime in the future.

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

*On both our Bites of Nassau Food Tour and our Authentic Bahamian Cooking Class, our tasting partner locations are not always able to provide vegan-friendly tasting options. As a result, we don’t suggest either experience as a suitable activity for guests adhering to a strict vegan diet.


Your meal will be paired with your choice of chef-selected wine. Guests who prefer not to drink alcohol can select a non-alcoholic beverage option instead.

We’ll also be serving bottled ice water throughout our time in the kitchen and in the dining room and there will be a refreshing tropical beverage to welcome us upon arrival.

During and after your meal, you’ll be able to purchase additional alcoholic beverages on site, but these costs will not be included in your ticket price.

"A PERFECT DAY- We booked a private tour for a group of 10... Our tour guide was very knowledgable and fun..and catered to our every whim! She also gave us some great suggestions for 'off the beaten path' activities during the rest of the trip. Would highly recommend this tour."
