Description


Experience the history, highlights, and tropical beauty of Nassau during the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & City Tour excursion. Begin your excursion by traveling by air-conditioned bus to your first destination, the hub of downtown Nassau, known as Rawson Square. Here you will see the House of Parliament, Supreme Court, Public Library and other historical buildings central to the life of the Bahamas and its people. From there, continue towards Government House, home of the Governor General, representative of Her Majesty the Queen of England. Along the way, pass churches built in the 1800s, where local residents still worship today. Continue West, and pass the Graycliff Restaurant and Hotel, a place rich in history, having housed guests such as the Duke and Dutchess of Windsor, various Lords & Ladies, and Winston Churchill. Disembark the bus at The Ardastra Gardens & Zoo, a peaceful retreat, to enjoy over 4 acres of lush tropical gardens and over 200 birds, reptiles and mammals. The Ardastra Gardens are home to a collection of endangered land animals and features the Bahamas National Bird, the beautiful and exotic Caribbean Flamingo. Participate in the “Flamingo Experience”, a unique show of the glory and antics of these incredible creatures together with an excellent narration of their story. You will also hand-feed the colorful and playful South Pacific Lory Parrots and have numerous photographic opportunities with “Toby” the Cockatoo, “Jackie” the Snake and “Freddy” the Peacock. Walk the gardens and enjoy the tropical beauty of the Caribbean. Make a pitstop to enjoy a refreshment or purchase a souvenir. Guests will have the perfect opportunity to take photographs of the natural beauty of The Bahamas at Aramark Cay before arriving back at the pier.
