Visit Bermuda’s first capital and see what a British colonial outpost looked like in the 1600’s when touring the historic 'Ol Towne of St. George's’.


Included is the admissions to the Fort St. Catherine; meander through the dark passageways and wander through the magazines where swords and pistols are on display, take advantage of the stunning views from high a top this grand fortress. A stop in the heart of the Ol Towne of St. George's allows for a visit to the oldest Anglican Church of the Western Hemisphere, St. Peter’s Church.


Watch history come to life in the Town Square and witness the reenactment of the “Town Ducking”, the old English style of public punishments of “wenches” and “town gossips”, conducted by the Town Crier. On adjacent St. David’s Island, once known as the US Air Force Base lands, you’ll discover the charm of this unique and enchanting community as you enjoy the imposing views of the Atlantic Ocean from St. David's Lighthouse.


There will be several photo stops on this tour, so don’t forget your camera!
