St. George's History + Culture Tours

It is hard to imagine being excited about leaving Bermuda's heralded pink-sand beaches. Until you meet Kristin White. Or climb the steep stairs to the 17th-century Old State House... This is the intoxicating call of history on an island famed for romance, but which goes far beyond the honeymoon. And the most resonant place to fall into that embrace is in the tiny, fascinating township of St. George. And in the company of Kristin.
