This guide is written by someone who clearly loves the island but its obvious the hanker for the old days of dress etiquette when it comes to dining and being out on the street.... Evening dresses to go to dinner? not is out experience.
But the author does take you around the island with obvious and well deserved passion. I wish the people coming off the cruise ships would use guides like this to learn a little about the island before stepping ashore.

The layout is awful with amateur photos. It managed to put us off going to Bermuda altogether! Nothing like as good as lonely planet guides.

Very good handbook; high on general info, low on historical background 13 May 2013
By Joanna M. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good, lightweight overview of Bermuda and will come in very handy for first time and repeat visitors. Those seeking information on beaches, golf and diving will find it very helpful as the author goes into great details on those topics. While there is some background, particularly on the early "explorers" (accidental, it seems, due to the propensity of sailing vessels to become stranded there), there is not a whole lot of in-depth back story of the islands. I would have liked to learn more of the native settlers (where they came from), how they managed to eke out an existence on a somewhat hostile land, what provoked more Europeans to come there to live, etc etc. More photos, in color, would have been nice. But I suppose there are other books that would highlight more of the historical aspects I am seeking.

As a reference guide, it is very well written and you can tell how much the author enjoys this destination. I appreciated the "homey" style in which it is written, much like a nice long letter one would have written back in the day when travelers on holiday wrote to their friends and family back home. I like that his "two cents" is offered, particularly with regard to restaurants and accommodations.

The only other negatives I have (besides the lack of color photos) are: Not ONE page in my copy of the book has a page number printed on it! There is a table of contents with page numbers listed, but leafing through the book = no page numbers at all! (fortunately it's a slim enough book that you can eventually find what you're looking for) The other is that it's loaded with typos. Apparently the "percent" symbol was not available on whatever keyboard was used to type this; no where does it appear (one example: when stating the population, it gave a breakdown of white versus black, and the percentage symbol failed to print but I understood what it meant; there were several other instances where " % " was missing but, again, I understood) Date issues: A date of 1503 is given for Juan Bermudez's arrival there then went on to say that "six years later....." and the date of 1609 is given. So, which is it? Was 1503 supposed to be 1603 or was 1609 supposed to be 1509? There is also a number of misspelled words that could have easily been caught by spell-check or more thorough proof read.

Overall, I gave it 4 stars because 3.5 wasn't an available option. It's helpful and informative and written by someone who obviously loves visiting Bermuda and loves sharing it. If you want a quick reference guide, you will find this a good choice (and you can easily number the pages if your copy needs it!) If you want much more in-depth history, background, flora/fauna, you will do better with a different book as this one merely scratches those surfaces - enough to satisfy the average tourist. It's also light enough to easily tuck into your carry-on bag so you can travel with it.

Bermuda Bound, Then Check it Out 16 Aug 2013
By Stephen Shane Sharp - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Visitor's Guide to Bermuda is a solid, concise and informative handbook for a trip to Bermuda. The author's passions comes through, especially when it comes to golf, dining, sight seeing and diving.

What struck me out of the gate:

"Bermuda is not a single island at all, but a great, fishhook-shaped atoll of more than 180 small islands ..."

An amazing place, no doubt.

The photos are color, many of them brilliantly so,and taken from a photographer's POV.

There are chapters on the history and economy as well.

A must for anyone headed to the island -- well -- islands!

Great guide 16 Aug 2013
By M Weston - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am looking to take a holiday in Bermuda and came across this book. And I'm very glad I did! Forget the Lonely Planet.... You get everything you need to know in this book for a very low price. It is extremely detailed with information on absolutely everything including where to stay, restaurants, activities, weather, climate, attractions. A great book!

Good book, but be aware..... 4 July 2014
By Mary Lou Kendus - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought three copies of this book - first a Kindle version that I liked enough to purchase two hard copies for myself and for another couple traveling with us. It was a good way of getting a lay of the land and ideas of what we wanted to do. This was my 5th trip to Bermuda and I found information in this book that I didn't know existed in Bermuda, which was great.

Be aware this appears to be a "homegrown" publication from the typos and some wrong information - none of which had to do with changes of admission prices, etc. that you can't count on anyway. There were two pieces of "misinformation" that we came upon: 1) about a Monday event at Fort Hamilton, pipe band and drummers at noon. We found out from the Visitors Center this only takes place during November - March, rather than all year long, but the book says nothing about that. 2) The book says if you show your transportation pass at Gibbs Lighthouse you get free admission. Not so. It wasn't a biggie price wise, but the salesperson says they have been very upset that it has been published and folks expect it when they come. She said they have contacted the writer asking it to be corrected to no avail. This caused us to become suspect of any details/info provided in the book of this nature.

I hadn't realized at the time that this author writes similar books for a number of islands. Perhaps he has visited at one time or another but I am not sure he is keeping up with things or double checking information.

Having said that though, I give this a book a good grade because it was very helpful before we went and an easy read. Just know not all the facts are correct and if I were to get another book of his I'd double check his information before making plans based on his information.

Helpful and Enthusiastic Guide 25 Dec 2013
By Betsy Malloy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The thing I like the most about this book is how much the author likes the place. It's evident within the first few pages and is a refreshing change of pace from other guidebooks, which can be so neutral that they're unhelpful. It includes lot of helpful advice to help trip planners get ready and includes frank, balanced reviews of a select set of hotels.

On the downside, I would have liked to see a few maps - although those are easy enough to find elsewhere.
