A new tour is in town and this one is taking you on a historical driving tour through Briland.
Imagine visiting Briland, one of the most picturesque islands in The Bahamas and having a full island tour, then being given free reign to explore on your own. That's about 100 Instagram worthy pictures in the front of beautiful pastel cottages, fifty shades of blue beaches, and monuments that paint a very colorful story of Briland's history. Your friends will be jealous for months and admittedly, we will be too.
The day begins when you board a high-speed powerboat at Margaritaville, arriving at Government Dock in Harbour Island in less than two hours. You're then greeted by the amazing June Dean, Harbor Island's Ministry of Tourism representative—who comes bearing treats. After introductions are made, you jump on your rented golf cart and tour the island visiting sites such as: the famous lone tree, Sir G. Roberts Library - the second oldest library in The Bahamas, the haunted house in Dunmore Town, St. John's Anglican Church—the oldest religious foundation in The Bahamas, and much more.
After the tour is done, you're then whisked off to Valentine's Resort where your lunch is waiting for you, because you would have pre-ordered it. Soft drinks are also included and the view is free. Take it all in, enjoy it because we believe you deserve it. After lunch is over, you have the freedom to explore the island. Stop at the Fish Fry, also known as Queen Conch, or drive around stopping at every pastel house for a picture opportunity. Whatever you decide, the choice is yours and you have an island to yourself.
The company that is bringing this tour to you is formerly known as Exuma Escapes, however they are escaping to more than just Exuma. Island Escapes is their new name and they're hoping to introduce both foreigners and locals to the different islands in The Bahamas complete with interactive tours.
