Whether it’s hiring a private yacht or joining a butler on a hike in the mountains, Andrew Doherty highlights new day trip options to complement a Caribbean break.
With its stunning landscapes, delicious food and diverse wildlife, the Caribbean offers much more than sun, sea and white sand. And while relaxing at a resort or on the beach will always remain popular, taking time to learn about the region’s history or explore its natural beauty will only serve to enrich the holiday experience. We profile six new day trips to recommend to clients booking a Caribbean break.
Clients with a penchant for Caribbean food should look to Tru Bahamian Food Tours’ new Savor Old Nassau two-hour experience, during which clients will join a local guide on a culinary adventure through the capital’s old town.
Tasting locations include the Talking Stick Bar and Restaurant, Graycliff Hotel and Bahama Barrels winery, with a menu featuring conch fritters, curry chicken and rum cocktails.
Participants will also have the chance to meet local entrepreneurs and artisans and receive a collection of recipes to take home.
“Tru Bahamian Food Tours was founded to offer visitors authentic local culinary experiences,” says general manager Anna Bancroft. “By the end of the tour, guests will have made more than a few local friends and leave with a new-found familiarity with the city and its eclectic dining scene.”
Book it: Tru Bahamian’s two-hour Savor Old Nassau experience departs on Sundays from Pompey Square, priced from £72pp, excluding tax and booking fees, offering 15% commission.
