Walk off-beat tracks in Bermuda
You will be accompanied by a long-term resident of Bermuda - Jo Cook. The excursions are for individuals, families and small groups of 2 - 6 people. If you like to pursue the walk even if the weather is not too good, she also offers a "foul weather plan" at half the price and it can be arranged at a short notice.
Jo usually designs the walking tour to explore off-beat places in Bermuda. She ensures that it fits to your schedule, interest and energy level. She will provide special insights into many of the cultural, historical and environmental aspects of Bermuda. If you enjoy walking, Jo can also advise you on how to discover and explore some of the unseen nooks and cranny when you thought you had seen all in Bermuda.
So what are the places that she can take you to?
Here are some glimpses:
(Near Somerset Bridge)
In this geologically oldest area of Bermuda, you can enter several unmarked caves and a maze of paths in "Tom Moore's Jungle", taking you back to the way Bermuda used to be.
Views of the sea, approaches to St. George's and the channel markers showing the route to the Dockyard and Hamilton, will clearly let you understand the seafaring traditions of neighboring St. David's and also the need for defensive fortification at this end of the island.
Tour duration, cost and Contact
The average tour cost is $20 per person, $30 per couple and $10 for accompanied youngsters between the ages of 6 and 16. Included in the price is transportation from your hotel and back, or onwards, after the walk is over.
The walking tours are usually 2.5 to 3 hours long. The tours do require the ability to walk on sometimes narrow, unmaintained paths, as well as up a short, steep slope or two, with as many stops as required.
Update July 2013: After nearly a decade of running her walking tours, Jo Cook has decided to end her business. She no longer conducts the walking tours.
