This “down home” tour offers a real cultural and historic experience which can be duplicated for all four districts (North, Central, South Andros and Mangrove Cay). Special features of this tour include movement through traditional settlements where visitors can observe old homesteads, historic churches and government buildings, as well as interact with friendly residents for delightful adventures in local folklore. Also, the guide will explain the settlement's origins, famous persons from that area, special craft, and food dishes, and any national political significance. It is only available during daytime.
