Bus tour or Taxi tour

Bus tour or Taxi tour

Hello, Question from first time person in Bermuda traveling via cruise ship docking in King Wharf. There are 4 of us traveling together and I am thinking about a private tour(Taxi?) vs a bus tour. Thinking about doing this our first day in Port, having the tour end in Hamilton. The plan to check out the city on our own and take the Ferry back to the ship later. Just wondering what other think of this plan vs taking the bus tour? Any idea on cost of this, as I have seen the cost of the bus tour is about $80 each, so thinking Taxi would be less and we can see what we want.

NO question about it.....take a private taxi tour, with a BLUE FLAG certified taxi tour guide. The rate is $50 per hour (not per person) for 1-to-4 passengers ($70 per hour for 5-to-7 passengers)

Almost any taxi driver will offer private tours (some are pretty good...others not) but not all are'..BLUE FLAG..' is an individual 'certification' process...not a commercial tour company. Look for the BLUE FLAG badge or logo-- https://tinyurl.com/l89mzxh .... https://tinyurl.com/y7j6wjtv --on the taxi or ASK the driver if they are BLUE FLAG certified?

Private taxi tours can cover all of the usual sights and attractions and/or may be easily '..customized..' to accommodate your own personal interests (art & architecture, flora & fauna, general or military history, parks & gardens, etc.). Attempting to do this with a bus-load of tourists would be chaos.
