Bermuda Tours By Bus, Vans, Minibus
And Other Road Vehicles
There are many ways to explore Bermuda on a road transport. While the public buses and ferries are excellent and can take you to virtually every place within the island, sometimes you may like to avoid the headache of planning every details of your tour. This is when guided tours on mini buses, vans and other road transports become the best mode, particularly if you are with your family or in a small group of your own. These group tours operate on per person rate although you can also charter a tour for your own private group which will require a minimum group size or payment.
Overland tours on road cover either one part of the island, like the east, central parishes or the west, or the entire island. The full island tour in a minibus or van covering most of the key attractions takes about 6 hours. Such tours will break for lunch or snacks on the way, or sometimes include a picnic lunch as part of the cost. For private chartered tours, you can customize your own tours.
In the following section I have described the operators offering some of the best sightseeing tours in Bermuda by minibus, vans and other road transports. They operate both on sharing basis with per person rates and also on private charters. In either case the tours usually require some minimum number of passengers to operate.
UPDATE JULY 2020
: As part of the 'New Normal' guidelines due to Covid-19 Pandemic, several changes have been imposed on the use of Minibus and vans. For example, minibuses can use a maximum of up to 50% of the capacity, passengers must wear masks, etc. Read these guidelines
apart from the overall guidelines of 'New Normal' as stated in Bermuda Government's website.

I have been trying to contact Beeline Transport for months with no luck regarding their airport shuttle service. Are they still on the go?

Dear Raj, Excellent information. Will be traveling in October 2013 with RCL. We have a family of six, including grandparents, and 3 year old and 8 month old children. Is there any minivan service for smaller group or is it better to take a regular taxi? Thank you in advance.

Hi, A 6-passenger taxi will be the most economical option for your group. Take a Blue Flag taxi (which has a driver certified as a tour guide). Another great option is to take the mini bus of Byways
(which accommodates 6-8 persons). Although Heidi (the owner) offers a set tour of the island, you can always customize that. She will pick you up and drop you at the dockyard. Regards,
