Raj, we have booked a tour for September 2016 with a blue flag taxi driver and the fee is 60$ per hour. Everything I have seen online is 50$ per hour. Has the rate gone up? Love all of the information that you have provided. Thank you!

Government stipulated rate is $50 per hour for small taxis. However some drivers can ask for more.

We recently took a tour of the island with Lewis Foggo. He was an excellent tour guide, very informative, accommodating whatever we wanted to see or do. Kind and considerate of my husband who has an injured knee. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to see the island with limited time or a longer tour.

My wife and I returned to Bermuda June 16-22, 2015 for our first visit since 1988. As a former resident of Bermuda, this was a nostalgic trip down memory lane to show my sister-in-law and her 3 daughters, along with her 2 sisters and cousin, where her recently deceased husband (also my brother, Colin) had grown up. Per your website recommendation, we selected Lewis Foggo to drive their party of 7 ladies on a 5 hour taxi tour of Bermuda on my brother's birthday, June 18, with my wife and I trailing behind on a motor scooter. As Lewis had promised, it was a Bermudaful experience. He was professional, knowledgeable, good humoured and a real gentleman. Our 7 ladies loved him. We would recommend Lewis Foggo absolutely to anyone contemplating taking a taxi tour of Bermuda.. John & Cyndia D.

Took a tour with a blue taxi driver, 4 hours to get to St George's. Some great stops but not all I expected. Should have been done in 2 or 3 hours. Finally told him wanted to be in St George's for lunch by 1, which he stretched to 130. Cash only no credit cards. If I ever do this again would tell him how long I want to tour, what I want to see. 2 stops were resorts, which I'm sure they gave him a perk to take us there. Stop at a store for bread to feed the fish, he should have done that on his time not ours. Drove 30 mph. I'm sure if we had not stopped him we would have had an 8 hr + ride. I'm sure he expected a tip and I felt like we had been taken for an extra hour($50), so no extra.

Sailing on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas we docked in Bermuda 6/20/15. It was our first trip to Bermuda. Four of us (my wife, mother-in-law and sister-in-law) had made arrangements for a taxi tour of Bermuda with Lewis Foggo. Lewis was in London when we arrived but he arranged for another driver, Jerry Smith, to take us. Jerry was great! He provided an outstanding tour of the island taking us places where no bus would go. After spending 4 hours with Jerry our desire is to return to Bermuda for a week.

On the quay at Bermuda we received a warm introduction to Millard Lightbourne of Mills Taxi Service - he made us so welcome and made our tour of the island so interesting. His knowledge of the island history & its plant life was amazing. He met our every need in a most pleasant manner-we had 3.5 hours of his time @150 dollars - he provided real value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending his services. I have told my tour operator to phone him -- she arranges very personal tours & Millard fits that description to the word.
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, May 2015): When I asked Keith how did he find Milliard, this is what he said:

Hello Raj - We simply came off the Norwegian Breakaway looking for a taxi tour of the island - within 50 yards there was Millard with his company board in his hand & a friendly smile. We told him what we would like to do, he explained the Island policy on taxi fares & off we went. He was so good other taxi drivers were asking him questions to help their clients at the stopping points

The driver Terrence St P. Smith not only took the longest way around ..from Dockyard to Hamilton.....but slammed our favorite restaurant.....hyping up Ascots. This man talked non stop about how we needed to take a tour. Our party of 6 were very intimidated by him..... Shame on you guys.

My finance and I had a awesome tour of Bermuda with Lewis Foggo. He seemed to tailor the tour as we went and showed us some things that I believe few other tourist would see. He is highly recommended by us and hope we can travel to Bermuda again in the next few years.

Raj, I contacted Lewis Foggo for a tour, he was great. He took my wife, daugther and myself, On a wonderful 5 hour tour of this beautiful island. He asked questions of what we were interested in and curtailed the tour to those interests. I highly recommend his tour to anybody who wishes to visit the island. Thank you for your review, that let us to Lewis.

Your webpage says that the rate for taxi tours is fixed by the government and mentioned in an update dated August 2013 that the taxi tour rates are currently under discussion with the government of Bermuda and may get revised. Do you know if the rate changed and if so, what is it now? I emailed a taxi tour service and was told the rate for 3 people is $65 an hour. You listed a rate for 1-4 people at $40. Is the rate I was given the new revised rate?
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com) March 2014
No change yet. Private tour operators can ask for higher rates. If you take a taxi from the stand (i.e. from taxi rank), then they should charge the same rate as mentioned. Sometimes the Certified Blue Flag taxi drivers ask for a higher rate since they are also qualified guide.
Hi Raj, we took your recommendation and scheduled a taxi service for our fist day there. He would take us around Bermuda (as a tour) for about 4 to 5 hours. Can you tell us several points of interest that we should stop to see, such as restaurant, remote cities, beaches, etc., where it's not too touristy. Thank you very much.
