Our East End tour with Hida was everything we wanted it to be! We met her when we got off our cruise ship and for the rest of the day, she made sure that we saw everything that we wanted to see.

Hida drove us around, pointing out important buildings and told us about both historic and current events in Grand Bahama. We did some shopping, walking on Taino Beach, visited Garden of the Groves- where we grabbed some drinks for Gold Rock Beach, we drove around Millionaire Row where we saw incredible homes, then we explored the caves at Lucayan National Park, and we finished our tour by having a picnic and swim at Gold Rock Beach. Hida had prepared a homecooked lunch for us and she also picked up cracked conch for us to try.

We had a wonderful time, and 100% fully recommend touring with Hida!

My husband and I spent two days with Hida- one day touring the West, the other touring the East. Each day, Hida picked us up at the resort and brought us back--she even brought a cooler of water to keep us hydrated during the day.

The first day, we stopped at the brewery, toured the West and swam with the pigs at Crystal Beach, went snorkeling and swimming with the sea turtles at Paradise Cove, and had a great lunch at the beautiful and tranquil Teasers Tiki Bar in the West End, on Old Bahama Bay. Along the way, we watched how conchs are removed from their shells and stopped at a blue swimming hole only a local could tell you about.

On day two, we traveled through the East and saw the dolphins being fed, (we had already been shopping in Lucaya, so we didn't stop there again), went to Taino Beach and Banana Bay, Millionaire's Row, Lucayan National Park, the Garden of the Groves, and ate a delicious lunch (packed by Hida) on Gold Rock Beach.

Hida personalized our experience, even helping my husband look for a sand dollar (he collects them everywhere we go!) She shared the history of the island and people, bringing their experiences to life. Hida's car was clean, everyone sanitized frequently, masks were required. She personalized our experience based on what we were interested in and was thoughtful in paying attention to small details. She even took pictures of us, so we could enjoy the moments and each other. We highly recommend Hida and will be sure to meet with her again when we return in the Spring.

Great tour--even GREATER tour guide!

During a recent Carnilval cruise, we had a one day (8 hour) stopover on Grand Bahama Island. We wanted to get the "flavor" of the island, and see many of the local sights. We picked Hida of Experience Grand Bahama Island as our personal tour guide. She was outstanding--arrived on time with her personal and immaculate SUV, and gave us an outstanding 7 hour tour! Hida is an island native, and extremely well versed in local history and all the best spots to tour. She was able to adjust her tour "on the fly" when I mentioned I was interested in the role Grand Bahama played in our early space flights from Cape Canaveral--she knew exactly where all these key sites were, and took us on a route to visit them. We also toured settlements (communities) along the way to the East End, along with an outstanding stops at Lucayan National Park, and a swim (and a great beachside lunch) at beautiful Gold Rock Beach. Hida is the best--awesome knowledge of island history, with a warm, very friendly personality! Our tour was just the two of us (my wife and me) but I suspect Hida can accommodate up to five-six tourists in her SUV, We plan on going back to GBI, and look forward to another tour with Hida....!

Hida knows the Island in and out. It appears she also know almost all residents of the island. Everyone recognizes her including some tourists who toured with her.
Our family of 4 took a day long tour of the island on with Hida in her spacious mini van on 31st Dec 2018.
What a fabulous day that had been - we started around 10:30AM and she told us many facts about the islands, history, maps, showed us Millionaire's row, Taino Beach, Smiths Flying Fish, Port Lucaya on the way to Garden of Groves where we also stopped at many stores. Then proceeded to a great local farm where we had lunch served by Hida and toured the farm before proceeding to Lucaya National park and Gold Rock beach. Thereafter she showed us some local settlements such as High Rock, Lighthouse, etc. We learned so much about the island throughout the 6 plus hours of the tour with her.

Hida comes across highly recommended with thorough knowledge, pleasant personality, great communications, and very helpful with pictures, etc.

Thank you Hida- Ratna

Hida is the best tour guide you will ever have. She really made our trip memorable by personalizing every aspect of it for us. She picked us up from our cruise ship, recommended great romantic restaurants, took us to great local spot, shared the history of the island, and gave us a true VIP experience!
Book with Hida now, it will be the best decision of your vacation.

Hida was great. It was only my friend and I so she customized the tour based on what was interesting for us. We not only got to see some beautiful places, we also learned a lot about the history and the people. It was like touring with a friend after a while.
