Cousin Marvin was excellent, from beginning to end. We were engaged in his tour and enjoyed it tremendously. It was nice to get a tour from someone who understands the social, historical and economic aspects of Nassau. We learned a lot!
Marvin was very personable and knew the area very well. My favorite part of our city tour was stopping at the tea shop! Best tea I have ever tasted! Can’t go wrong booking with marvelous tours!
Cousin Marvin - we are so glad we booked this tour! You didn't know that you would end up with 2 history buffs in your car last week; however, we just loved the history of your island that you shared with us and your knowledge and insight. History, rum, color, plant life, rum, conch and sunshine.....doesn't get much better than that. Thank you for a great tour - your energy and enthusiasm for life is so very wonderful. Let us know the next time you make it to Fuquay-Varina, NC. Take care.
“Cousin” Marvin was wonderful! Accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. My two sisters and I took our 83 year old Mom on her first cruise, and our first stop was in Nassau. Lucky for us, we found marvelous tours and Marvin on trip advisor and all the fantastic feedback convinced us to book our tour of the city with them. So glad we did. Marvin took such great care of our Mom, who uses a walker to get around. She was able to participate in everything because Marvin made sure of it. We are so grateful and thank him for helping to make this a memorable trip for all of us
We did not manage to go on the tour with Marvelous due to hurricane Irma. So why 5 stars? Their communication was prompt polite and friendly. When we sought a refund for our cancelled tour, they we the first to confirm and repay us the full price. These folk will need all your support to rebuild their business after Irma's destruction of the islands. You can trust these guys and although we missed out on doing the actual tour, I'm sure it would have been great. Thank you Marvelous Tours and we trust things bounce back quickly for you - Robert & Narelle Fuller (Australia - Sept 2017) - disappointed we didn't get to experience your beautiful island with you guys.
Marvin was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Easy to talk with like a family member. He didn't seem like he was just going through the motions. I believe he had a good time also. His outgoing personality is an asset for a guide. Thank you Marvin, I'm sure we'll see you again.
Cousin Marvin was truly marvelous. To start, we had trouble finding the tour, and when we finally found someone who could contact Marvin, the tour had already departed... But Marvin came right back to pick us up, and got us up to speed with the remainder of the tour group. He provided a lot of great historical and cultural information about New Providence that we didn't learn on our first trip to the Bahamas. He was exceptionally polite, professional, and hilarious too. Looking forward to our next trip to Nassau so we can take another tour with Marvin!
Marvin was so very friendly and warm during our entire tour. He was extremely informative and fun and helped to make our trip to Nassau exceptionally memorable!
Marvins knowledge is priceless
Great tour of Nassau. Marvin was very friendly and made us feel comfortable during our tour. We highly recommend him!!
