Unexpected Yet Amazing
Feb 2020
I didn't know what to expect but this was an amazing day. Donald was so delightful. He went out of his way to make sure we saw everything. Dianna was sweet and cook a great meal that we enjoyed overlooking the ocean. It is a casual, laid back day but full of interesting things to learn. I'd recommend this to anyone heading to Freeport.

Not you typical tour
Jan 2020 • Family
The experience was honestly not like I expected but better. My mother and I went on a cruise and wanted to get a locals perspective on the island. Donald was able to give us so much knowledge about the island. He drove us all over after we had an amazing home cooked lunch. The knowledge I gained about Freeport and the Bahamas as a whole I would not have been able to gain if he wouldn’t have offered this tour. I highly recommend booking if you plan to be in Freeport and want want something different. He shows you the real Freeport not to scare you but to educate you. Donald knows everyone and everyone knows him. People spoke to him time and time again making us feel completely comfortable in our surroundings. Again if you are looking for a great lunch and to see the island from a locals standpoint this is the way to go.

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.

Awesome!
We had an amazing time! Donald knew some much about the island and was passionate about the culture. He showed us what it was really like for the local people. He drove us to all over the island, we saw saw hurricane ravaged buildings, resorts and homes, but we also saw the resilience of the people. He taught us about Bush medicine and showed us the true beauty of the island. The lunch they served was sooo good, Chef Princess Diana is an amazing cook. And the meal was served on the beach with amazing views. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who plans on visiting the island.

Nice, but there are better tour options in Freeport
Aug 2018 • Family
Donald and his family are very nice people and they provided a very pleasant meal, however if you are on a limited travel/tour budget, I would not choose this option again. There are a number of better, more enjoyable options in Freeport which include deep sea fishing with Tom Folley and Sons or horseback riding with Linda at Pinetree Stables.
This option was expensive and not good value for your travel money.

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.

This a great way to truely experience the island! Donald is knowledgeable about all things in Bahamian culture. We had full transport to/from our pickup location, and a great tour of the island with Donald answering all of our questions. We had the best conch fritters since arriving and the lunch that was prepared for us was absolutely delicious! This is a must if you enjoy experiencing true Bahama culture!

awesome excursion!
Feb 2018 • Couples
this was by far my favourite excursion that i did while in freeport! don the tour guide was excellent and informative. we got to see more of the actual city and how the residents actually live instead of being taken to places where you can buy t shirts. the junkanoo museum was cool and the lunch at buddies by the bay was great! highly recommend it!

wonderful time in Freeport!
Apr 2018 • Couples
I can't imagine a more enjoyable excursion. Great sightseeing and tour guides, great food in a wonderful setting. Excellent conversation, and exchange of ideas and information. My wife and I very much appreciated and enjoyed the time we spent with our warm and friendly hosts, Donald and Di. We felt so welcome and "at home."

I highly recommend this Tour to anyone interested in something a bit more meaningful than a "day at the beach!"

The best Freeport cultural experience possible
May 2017 • Couples
This is truly a one on one experience. Being able to have pastor Donald Duncomb drive us around the island and discuss culture, politics, civics, music, and true Freeport experience with us was priceless. Our meal was excellent. He went out of his way to make sure I brought home the ultimate souvenir - a political sign "It is the People's Time" from there election that culminated that very day. He was a cool dude and a well-informed tour guide. We remain friends and are grateful for this experience.

Thank you for being so gracious and adventurous. It was truly a fun filled day hosting you while elections were taking place. The fun came in trying to find campaign give-a-ways! Should you decide to visit again you can determine if it is truly the "People's Time." It was our time to give you special time and the time was well spent with great folks like you. Donald.
