I purchased this guide before a recent trip to Bermuda and in fact read it before the trip. I found it helpful, I underlined things and places I wanted to see. In fact Bermuda is so beautiful, I only managed to do a third of the things I planned. I recommend this guide book.

This is an excellent guide book with a superb table of contents which makes it very easy to use ?
All the information Ineeded to use turned out to be accurate

Only problem is turning "the book" sideways to look at a page with a map. the iPad mini keeps rotating the page

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for those on a budget 16 Oct 2012
By teachsale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frommers Bermuda is a good basic book that gives info on prominent hotels, prominent restaurants and any sightseeing spots. But, it does not help much for those on a budget. Bermuda is an island for the very wealthy. Even those renting housekeeping units must buy groceries that are well beyond what we pay in the States. The guide should warn people about that. It would be better if the book had made some suggestions as to how to eat fairly simply ( ex: buy pre-made foods in grocery stores-hot buffets), or foods you might bring with you to cut expenses. It also should make a point of telling people that car rentals are not allowed(may have done this) and scooter rental is now dangerous because of much increased traffic.One must take a cab ( big expense) or learn the bus system which is a very good way to get around. Such hints as these would be helpful. If money is no object than these suggestions aren't important. But, a complete tourist guide should help all travelers know what awaits them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs improvement 14 Mar 2013
By Adventuress - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've bought other Frommer's books, but this is the first that has disappointed me. We used it for our recent trip to Bermuda- lovely island by the way- but found the information in the book lacking. We ate at two highly recommended spots and were hugely disappointed in them both (I don't think it's fair to name them as it's possible, we just hit an off night). We also tried two other spots, The Point and Port O Call, both of which we loved (we especially enjoyed The Point- impeccable service and delicious food!). But when you're on vacation and have a limited amount of time you don't want to like half your meals - you want to love them all! I feel like we could have basically guessed and / or asked around and wound up with a better success rate.

Also, Bermuda has so many amazing things to do that are free, it's a shame this isn't highlighted in the book. We took the most lovely walking tour of the City of Hamilton and another amazing tour of the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) that we both free and top highlights of our trip. And we really enjoyed walking parts of the railway trail (as did others staying at our resort), so I feel the book could have expanded more on that as well. I actually think visiting Bermuda is a lot like visiting DC. There's a ton of stuff to do regardless of your budget. You can take a free tour or get a $300 massage, and either way you'll have a blast. It's unfortunate that the book does not highlight these amazing free experiences. Deciding to go to Bermuda can be inexpensive- but you wouldn't know it from reading this book.

One more thing! I was so so so disappointed that the book recommended renting mopeds on the island when the average tourist fatality rate is 46 people per year (and that's just fatalities, not injuries). Every single local we spoke to said it was simply crazy for tourists to get on those bikes given the roads (crazy narrow and curvy) and the fact that the drive on the opposite side (left). We left the mopeds to the silly tourists and relied on the amazing bus, ferry, and occasional cab. If you're still leaning towards a moped, chat with your taxi driver about this on the way to your hotel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Island 25 Dec 2012
By Jay C. Hardin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frommer's Guide to Bermuda was very helpful in planning our trip. It enabled us to understand the geography and to pick out where we would like to stay. It was highly useful in its coverage of restaurants and spots to visit. The warnings were valuable, and while many never occurred, at least we were prepared. The Customs people on entry could not have been any nicer and there was no problem at all in bringing prescription medications into the country. The cab ride from the airport was high, but at least we knew what to expect. Given the price of gas there, it is understandable. And it was helpful to have obtained some Bermudan dollars before we went, although US dollars seem to be accepted most everywhere. All in all, we are very glad that we purchased Frommer's Guide.

I favor the Frommer guides and this one was extremely helpful in helping us plan our week in Bermuda last summer. We used it for everything. I would definitely recommend it but here's an important tip. First check the publication date in the front. If the guide is more than one year old, it may not be up-to-date and sometimes Frommer doesn't update its guide. We travelled to Bermuda in 2013. We never travel without a guidebook. If the publication date is appropriate, the Frommer guide should work for you.

I found this guide very comprehensive in detail so that my family referred to it when they took a cruise to Bermuda last
year. It is going to be utilized by others this Summer. This has made the purchase to be a very good buy.
