Bermuda Tourism Authority: ‘Way We Live Tours’

October 5, 2019 | 15 Comments

“The Bermuda Tourism Authority has worked so hard with local stakeholders to create experiences this fall that focus on our homes, neighbourhoods and architecture,” the BTA said.

A spokesperson said, “Visitors are fascinated with the way we live out here. That’s why the Bermuda Tourism Authority has worked so hard with local stakeholders to create experiences this fall that focus on our homes, neighbourhoods and architecture.

“They began on October 3 with new architecture experiences and then later in the month include rare opportunities to go inside spectacular Bermuda houses and have conversations with the people who live there.

    Real down to earth Bermudians do NOT live the way the BTA portrays to tourists,they are trying to sell a LIE

    • Kevin Dallas says:

      Each of these tours will try to show a balanced view of Bermudian life. For example, while the “Haunted House” tour is anchored on the story of the Cox house, the experience includes a narrated tour of diverse central parish neighbourhoods (which locals know well but visitors do not) like Verdmont Valley, Kilderry Estate and Spanish Point.

      Idjit. They are trying to increase tourism not spread socialism or perpetuate the hard done by mantra many chose. Why do you give your power away so easily.

    • sage says:

      Government House really hits the ‘where ‘we’ live’ definition, 28 room mansion and 30 acres rent free.

    • CHRIS says:

      oh be quiet. you don’t go ANYWHERE on the planet and to see average joe. you go to see history, architecture, gardens, shrines, etc.

    • bluenose says:

      Which areas would you wish to go to if you visited London or Paris?

  2. Skeptic says:

    Fantastic that our history and culture is being promoted for tourism, albeit pretty limited in scope. What is very disturbing is to see a complete lack of understanding of history in the statements made on the Tourism website – full of errors. Why would they ask a competent historian to proof read their materials? It simply comes across as being stupid!

    • Skeptic says:

      Should be ”Why wouldn’t they…” in the second last sentence…

    • Kevin Dallas says:

      Please feel free to contact me directly with anything you spot on the BTA website that needs to be corrected.

      While the site’s primary purpose is to entice visitors to out here and enrich their experience, we of course strive for accuracy in everything we do.

    Click on the links and see what they are charging! $59 for ‘Haunted Georgian Style Home’. It’s not the ghosts that will frighten you.
