"I only had a couple of days in..." Tour Guides Tip by Annabella

Tour Guides, The Bahamas: 2 reviews and 1 photos

I only had a couple of days in the Bahamas and was really excited to go on the Pirate Tour. I really love pirate lore (in my local area I can recommend the Wydah exhibit in Provincetown, Cape Cod about the exploration of this sunken pirate ship) so was very exhibited to take the pirate tour. What a rip off. Normally guided city tours are excellent, but I could easily have done this on foot. The worst thing was that there were 'independent' guides at every tour stop, so you had to slip them a buck or two each even though you'd already paid the tour company something like $30 for a few hours. The pirate museum itself is overpriced, but it has good captioning and is fun in a kitschy sort of way.
