I can not emphasise how wonderful and accommodating George was. We had a wonderful time touring and the beaches are fabulous!
We arranged our tour with George on our own (separate from excursions) and we couldn't be happier with our decision. We were a family of 10 and George accommodated the group extremely well, including my aging grandmother whom requires oxygen and a wheelchair. He is extremely knowledgable of his native, Bermuda and was happy to share his views, history, tips, and tricks. He customized according to our interests including a golf course view and beach suggestions. He has a vehicle with plenty of room.
He was more than generous, even with time, and the cost was way less than an excursion thru the cruise line.
Thank you George!!
I booked a tour with George prior to arriving on a cruise to Bermuda. We were a party of 11 people, most are elderly and have never been to Bermuda. George was a great tour guide. He met us by the dockyard early and we were on a private tour in his very comfortable mini-bus. We went on a 5+ hour tour around the entire island and saw all the beautiful sights of Bermuda from great scenic locations. Being a 4th generation native of Bermuda, George knew all the places and history of the island. He was very patient with our group and matched our pace throughout the day. We even stopped at the Port Royal Golf Course for a quick swing of the club! Everyone had a wonderful time and I am so happy to have booked with GAR instead of the cruise excursions.
George is the best!!! I book our tour with him before we went on our cruise. When we got off of our cruise ship in Bermuda, George was there holding a sign waiting for us. He was very knowledgeable of the whole island and it's history. We told him we liked golf, so he added to our tour and took us the Port Royal Golf Course, the former home of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf Tournament. He is a member there so he was able to bring us out there to see the 10th & 18th holes on the golf course. He showed us the neighborhood where he grew up in. The reason why George is the BEST, he did his tour backwards from all the other tour busses. So where ever we went, there was no crowds fighting with us, so we could enjoy our sites better. George is the MAN, don't waste your time with the other tours. Mark C. from Rocky Hill, Ct.
George was fantastic, friendly and very down to earth. I felt like he was part of our family. We weren't sure where we wanted to go on the tour and he gave us a tour hitting all the hot spots as well as the spots that people may not ask for. He was so good to my parents who were elderly. He took pictures for us so we would have lasting memories. He was very patient and let us extend our time with him, I never felt rushed. He changed up the tour so that we would be ahead of the other tour buses so we never had to wait anywhere. He told us some good places to eat when we stopped for lunch. I would highly recommend his tours. The tour helped us to decide what to do on the next day. He even offered to take us the next day to places we were thinking of going so he was very accommodating. I felt very safe with him and I would highly recommend his tour!!!!!!!!!! Bermuda is a beautiful island but you need to take a tour to really see the beauty of it!!!!!!!!!!
George was the best. He was on time waiting for us on the dock as we departed the cruise ship. He took us to all the major sights, avoided the large bus tour crowds and provided some customization for us. Once he knew that we were all golfers he took us by the golf course and let us take pictures at the 18 hole. What a beautiful country club it was. After lunch, he took us by his old neighborhood, which gave us a small glimpse of the real Bermuda. PROs: he was the most charming tour guide, gave us exactly what we we're looking for, and treated us as family. CONS: none
Donavan was at the pier waiting for us as we walked off of the ship. He was pleasant and enthusiastic and quickly guided us to where his van was waiting. Come to find that Donavan is Albert's son and covers for his father on weekends. We had a couple of things that we wanted to do on our agenda and gave him the liberty to fill in the time as he chose. He took us to lots of great sites and was very knowledgeable as he explained the history behind them. A lot of the stops had incredible vistas that I have yet to see on any of the islands I've visited. One thing that impressed me the most was his diligence of watching the time. He made sure that we were well aware of how much time we would have at each stop to allow for our beach time and paddle boarding reservation. Everywhere we went he stayed with us and made sure that we were running on time. He even convince us to cut our paddle boarding excursion short by about 20 minutes to make sure that we would have plenty of time to get back to the ship. I highly recommend them for touring and will be using them again on future visits.
George from Gars tour was soo helpful with our cruise critic group who had been abandoned close to cruise by Winsome tours who decided to no longer accept a mixed group of travelers like ours who don't know each other except online... So then I found George who even called me in the states to reassure me and we were off organizing another excursion for the group... Sadly bad weather rolled in and the NCL Jade was unable to stop in Bermuda... The group was sad about not getting to go on this excursion , see beautiful Bermuda and some were also concerned after all the work that George lost all the income from this group .... Anyways George helped us and hopefully someone else who reads this review will consider using him for a future excursion...
George is the best. I went to Bermuda last year and George took my group on a tour. He did a great job. This year my wife was able to come and it was just the two of us. George was able to fit us in with another tour he was doing. We learned so much from him. It was a outstanding tour.
We were a party of 4 who didn't book an excursion but last minute wanted to get around and learn a little bit about the island. Owner was nice enough to do an impromtu tour with our party and another party of 6. Went on a 2 hr tour from the cruise terminal and made our way to Hamilton with several pit stops to Bermudas historical sites. Very informative, efficient, affordable and overall an enjoyable time. Thanks again.
We were traveling via cruise ship to Bermuda, and wanted a personalized small tour for our multi-generational group. George delivered!
He accommodated our request for an early start, provided lively and informed commentary throughout, and answered our multitude of questions with patience. We covered a lot of ground in our 5 hours, and learned a lot about the island and what it is like to live there.
George was a hit from the 14 to the 86 year old and I highly recommend him for a great day on Bermuda!
