Highlights of Bermuda by Private Van and Driver/Guide
Tour Participation Requirements
How about a proper tour of a proper place? From stunning pink sand to tranquil waters and centuries of exciting history, this jewel shines brightly from every angle. To really see it, however, you'll want a guided tour that not only travels to the many treasures of the island, but also helps you to understand their significance.
Though only 24 miles long, Bermuda is jam-packed with sights, sounds and experiences. Ever wanted to see the world's smallest drawbridge? What about the gorgeous, panoramic views at one of the first cast iron lighthouses to ever be built?
It's all here. Your helpful guide regales you with tales about these points of interest that will help you better understand the island's history, from its founding as a colonial trading post in the 1600s to its development into a British naval stronghold, where the troops that burned Washington, D.C. in the War of 1812 sailed from.
Like a steel drum musician hugging a white-wigged British lord, the elegance of the colonial era is engulfed by a laid-back Caribbean vibe here. Miles of pink sand beaches and vivid blue water pass all around, but there's plenty of imperial influence here as well, like the twin clocktowers at the Royal Naval Dockyard, built right after Britain's defeat in the Revolutionary War.
To wrap up this exciting excursion, you'll get some time to explore the shops and sights on Hamilton's Front Street, where you can purchase handmade crafts and clothing. Between the colonial buildings painted in bright island hues, the friendly local vibe, and the 600 miles separating it from any other land, Bermuda is physically, culturally and historically a place like none other.
Traditionally, residents of Bermuda have chosen floral colors to paint their houses, eschewing the standard earth tones. But today, these bright and colorful dwellings are more than just nice to look at: They are used as landmarks for getting around. When you ask someone how to get somewhere in Bermuda, don't be surprised if they talk more about the colors of the buildings nearby than the names of the actual streets.
