Train tours of Dockyard & Hamilton?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone done the Bermuda Train Company's 90 minute tour of the Dockyard, or its 1-hour or 90 minutes tours of Hamilton? Are they worth the time? Do you need reservations?

Hate to give you the bad news....but there are no trains, streetcars or trolleys in Bermuda today. So, your train tour will not be on a train!

I'm glad that you replied; that saved me the trouble of figuring out how to post the link to Bermuda Train Company. Have you tried any of these tours? I'm still wondering whether they're worthwhile, although they sound very interesting.

judyzoo: We haven't ever been to Bermuda, so our cruise there on 9/12 will be our first. I don't know anything about these tours but I did send an email to them asking for more information. Since our cruise is the short one on the Empress, we probably won't be able to do this one. We are going to do the Hartley undersea helmet walk and probably the Hawkins Island 'Don't Stop the Carnival' thing. Have a great time on your cruise!

This will be our first time to Bermuda also. And I've emailed the Bermuda Train Company with a couple of questions, too. I think that we'll end up trying at least one of their tours. Enjoy your cruise and Bermuda!

We're also on the 9/18 Empress.
My wife amd myself will be returning to Bermuda with our friends and 9/18 can't get here fast enough.

You are going to have a wonderful time.

Did you sign up for the meet & mingle yet?

No; I haven't signed up for M&M. Hate to be a party pooper, but DH isn't into that type of thing, especially when we first board, so I think I'll pass also. Don't want to start the cruise out on the wrong foot with DH.

We're not huge party animals either (those days are behind us).
We go to the M&M hoping to meet a few people with whom we can share a pleasant conversation or two during our vacation.
This has proven to be very fruitful in the past.
It's nice meeting someone you've recently befriended coming from or going to dinner or even on the streets of where ever we may be. It tends to broaden the overall cruise experience.
With any luck we may cross paths anyway, even if we don't know who each other is.
Either way, have a pleasant cruise.
