People-to-People is a year-round Ministry of Tourism programme intended to give visitors a genuine and informal view of Bahamian hospitality and culture as you might see it when visiting a friend. Volunteers with interests similar to your own are available to give a taste of Bahamian life in a convenient, personal way.
You might join them at home for conversation and an authentic Bahamian meal, at civic or social clubs, at a church service or sports event, or see the sights with a native's interpretation. One of the highlights of our programme is a Tea Party at Government House in Nassau, hosted by the spouse of the Governor-General.
Visitors are entertained by local artists and can view the local arts and crafts on display, while enjoying delicious local bush teas and pastries. Our programme also sponsors High Tea on Grand Bahama Island, The Exumas and The Abacos. Tea parties are held from 4pm to 5pm on the last Friday of each month, January to November.
