We loved being able to escape the crowds and stop wherever we wanted. This experience was unforgettable and I highly recommend it to anyone! I would definitely do it again! The whole staff was amazing...Racquel and Alicia especially! They were easy to communicate with beforehand and gave wonderful recommendations of places to go. The entire staff was so friendly. Can't say enough good things about this company and our experience!read less

The paperwork told us there would be someone with a “bowcar” sign waiting for us, but we saw no such person, so we had to hunt Bowcar down... this was my first time legitimately out of the states, so when leaving the port and coming in contact with SO MANY Bahamians trying to get our attention, I began to feel overwhelmed and anxious that I wasn’t going to find the Bowcar representative. There was NOTHING to guide me to Bowcar, except for the Bahamian people that are working to get us to buy their offered service.
I finally told one gentleman that I didn’t want what he was offering, but that I was looking for Bowcar. He pointed me in the right direction, and was very kind while doing so (later learning the Bahamian people are very kind all around, but there are those that definitely hustle tourists; stay away from the Straw Market, imo.)
This is where we met Reeco! Reeco was very nice and helpful. He didn’t have the buggy waiting for us, so he went to get it. We piled in and he lead us to the Bowcar ‘base camp’. This is when I learned, in the Bahamas, you drive on the left. Didn’t know that until that very moment when I got behind the wheel and Reeco told me. Thankfully, the steering wheel was on the left of the vehicle, so as to not totally discombobulate me. I put all trust in Reeco as he lead us to camp, blowing stop signs as he’s waiving me on, taking blind turns in the same fashion...he was impressed lol.
When we got to camp, one of the ladies I was with noted the little door would not latch as we drove, so Reeco swapped out the vehicles.
I went to the desk where Alicia was and took care of the paperwork. Alicia was very helpful too. She walked me through how to get in touch with her (since this newb never made an international journey before and thusly never made international phone calls...lol...Thank you, Alicia!) I got a crash course in Bahamian driving etiquette from her and we were off!
The remainder of the crash course in Bahamian driving took place on the road...lol...luckily, I was up for the challenge. YOU GUYS, THESE PEOPLE DRIVE CRAZY AND YOU JUST HAVE TO JOIN IN. Stop signs are a suggestion. Blind corners are always a leap of faith. Narrow roads are damn near a game of chicken. You just have to commit. NO FEAR!! And OMG the amount of turn arounds in a vehicle that is in danger of tipping was unbelievable!!
Only complaints were in the quality of the vehicles performance 1) the buggy ran HOT, like overly hot. The heat from the engine overpowered the breeze coming in to a partially covered vehicle. It was so uncomfortable. 2) it ran real rough, like only 3 of 4 cylinders were working properly or something. 3) it stalled in reverse once and acted like it would a couple more times.
We didn’t get to drive the vehicle on the beach because it was an “off” day for tourism and all vehicle access to the beaches were closed...go figure...not Bowcar’s fault, but a heads up would have been nice. We don’t know your country/city like u do so a secret access point would have been nice, but then again, I didn’t want to get in any trouble either...so...it was overall a great time. We got to see some things we otherwise would never have by only staying near the port.
We got back a little past time, but then I think we didn’t get the vehicle right on time anyway. When we returned we asked where a good, native restaurant was so we could experience some of the local food and Alicia suggested we go to Bahamian Cooking Kitchen (thank for that, it was SO good!). And the best part is that they drove us to this restaurant! I am so sorry we didn’t tip the driver! I had no more cash on me because the ladies I was with didn’t have enough at a few of the stops we made, so I loaned them some cash. I mentioned this to the group, but nothing resulted from this...again, I’m so sorry. 😐 I mean he walked us up to the door! 🤦🏼♀️ I’m embarrassed.read less

Let me begin with getting a new buggy, loud but fun, had a blast just exploring Nassau on our own... I didn't expect the buggys to go as fast as they did ( had it up to 55mph) probably shouldn't have but did . So we thought we had plenty of time to get back when we had to be on the ship, NOPE , they had roads blocked off because of a parade and the traffic was bumper to bumper.. we where still trying to make our way to Bowcar and noticed we only had 30mins before the ship pulls anchor and we were stuck in traffic, so I called Dwight from Bowcar and he told us how to go , and the whole time he had seen us from a hill while he was on his scooter and meet up with us in traffic, and took our daughter to the ship so at least she didn't miss it, so we pull in, run inside to give the key back and sign off on the buggy, (all about 3mins) and turn around and Dwight (the one who took us to Bowcar and back to port ) was there in the van to take my wife and I back, wow he was quick ! So with traffic in every direction and NO hope of making it back in time , we had help with an awesome police officer on a motorcycle, and seen us stuck again about a mile away and came to our help again... we made it with 5mins to spare.... wow wow wow cant say Enough about the hospitality they showed us ! Thank you so much Dwight and the rest of the crew at Bowcar and the motorcycle officer ! We will Definitely get a buggy in Nassau again when we r there from Bowcar !!read less

Alicia was very helpful and efficient with getting us on our way to our buggy. We were driven to the location of the rentals, and given a run down on how things worked. We were on our way to a fabulous adventure. They are easy to operate and very well maintained.
All in all, a very seemless interaction from start to finish.read less

At first I was a little apprehensive about doing the tour as my bride had never ridden an ATV before and the left side road added more of a challenge.
Dwight put us at ease, every time we came to a busy intersection, Dwight would stop and direct traffic for her effortlessly. With the wireless communication he made us feel as if we were the only ones on the roundabouts. Before you knew it she was riding like a champ and leaving me in the dust. If riding along the teal blue seas in an open air environment with a knowledgeable guide is something that intrigues you, then I recommend Bowcar as the company to guide you safely. Also as part of the tour, the folks at the Bahama Grill provided the best food of our entire trip.read less

Even worse, the company refused to give us a refund even though the tour was cut short by 2 hours because of the attack and robbery. Stay away, very dangerous, I believe the staff had something to do with the attack. VERY DANGEROUS.read less

They were so friendly and knowledgeable of the island. Bring a little extra money in case you want to buy tea from Tasty Teas or rum from the distillery! Both were fantastic quick tours! Lunch was delicious. Our 2 teenagers thought this was a great time! The buggies are new, safe, and comfortable and easy to drive!read less

I was a little nervous about areas that are advised not to go to, so we rented the GPS as well. They picked us up at our hotel and brought us to their location. On the way, Sonya gave us an excellent little tour and showed us highlights to go visit. She explained about the areas to avoid and we had a wonderful time, very easy as you just follow the main street, Bay St. We drove around Pleasure Island, explored the Queens Staircase and Fort Fincastle, went to Ardastra Zoo , stopped and had lunch at Oh Andros at the fish fry and stopped on Bay St for some shopping. It was fun to drive around in the 4x4 rather than a car. At the end , they drove us back to our resort. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. In fact everyone we met, had contact with in Nassau was very friendly. Thank you Bowcar for a very memorable day in the Bahamas.read less

Their stand was easy to find upon exiting the ship and our interaction with each member of the staff was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful. We were promptly taken to their main location via shuttle and instructed on how to use the buggies. The buggies were in impeccable condition and even had Bluetooth speakers, which we all felt was a very nice touch. We rented ours for 6 hours and drove around all of Nassau. Very nice way to tour the island on your own. Highly recommend and would do business with Bowcar again!read less
