Owner description: Winsome Tours are private and exclusive for all size groups from 1 through 50 people (or more) - Owners Ralph and Julie Richardson are both Born Bermudians. They are both semi retired and enjoy sharing their island home with their guests. The couple has increased their fleet to two vehicles as demand has required it. Both bring their unique Bermuda experiences to their tours and immediately create the feeling of family with their guests. Their incredible knowledge of Bermuda, coupled with their friendly approach, sets Winsome apart as a premier tour operation. As one of their guest has stated, "It is like a drive with family."New!! 2015 - Due to demand new associates have joined the Winsome team - all rate extremely well on Tripadvisor - Welcome: Anthony, Robert and Rene.

Ralph is organized, professional, thoughtful, and insightful. He has exceptional knowledge of Bermudian culture, history, geography and nature and will tailor your tour to your group's unique needs and interests.

We had the privilege of touring with Ralph for 2 days. The highlights for me were:
1) Ralph's walking tour of the beautiful St. Georges, and the captivating stories behind it's landmarks and sites.
2) The gorgeous beaches - Horseshoe Bay stood out as being the most pristine and calm (Tobacco Bay was incredible as well).
3) Ralph's tour in his van will not disappoint. He will point out the most notable sites and will pass around interesting photographs and documents to supplement his descriptions (I won't ruin the surprise but he'll share lots of fun facts and fascinating personal connections to the island).

Ralph will go above and beyond to ensure that you have the most fun and uniquely Bermudian experience possible. If you're planning a tour, Ralph's your guy!

Ralph went above and beyond, truly showing me and my family the best time, over the two tours we had with him. Not only did he take us to Bermuda's beautiful sights, he shared his fascinating knowledge and experiences with us about each place we had visited on route. Ralph is awesome and I highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for an incredible tour! 5 stars!

My family and I had the pleasure of doing 2 tours with Ralph. We were a group of 10, aged 19-59, and wanted to see the uniqueness of Bermudan history, culture, and wildlife. Ralph did not disappoint. In fact his tour far exceeded our expectations. Here's why:

1. The tour was completely personalized. We were able to see everything we wanted to see - a nature reserve, 3 beaches, a museum, St. Georges, churches, and tons of sight seeing. Ralph and Julie also spent hours with me over the phone discussing what was feasible, and finding ways to cram everything into our 2 tours.

2. Ralph is the most knowledgable and impressive tour guide I have ever met. The guy is a sailor, navigator, musician, author, submarine pilot, fireman, professor, and politician. He has served in countless non-profit and public service roles as well. Everyone in Bermuda seems to know him, and he seems to know everyone and everything about the islands. His tours are packed with fascinating facts, and stories that bring what you see to life.

3. Ralph's personality was the icing on the cake. He conducts his business with such honesty and integrity, and he is both diligent and flexible. Working with him was such a pleasure at every step along the way.

I highly recommend this tour.

Hi again Y,

We would like to say how refreshing it was to work with you on planning your two day tours. You were patient and willing to take our advise. In the end we were able to give you the tours which worked well for you. Sometimes our potential clients, though planning to visit for the first time, do not wish to take our advise. You were more than willing to work with us on your planning. For that we would like to give credit to you as the group's tour planner.

It was the most delightful two days this year for me as we explored areas I had not seen in a while. And it was great that you all even had time for a swim.

Thanks for choosing us, for working patiently with us, and taking time to write such a thoughtful review, hopefully we can do it again someday.

All the best to you and your lovely family,

We did a 6.5 hour Signature tour with Winsome Transport in May 2015..it was such a good experience that we looked forward to seeing the island with them again when we returned in June 2017. As with our previous experience, making arrangements via their website and emails with Ralph and Julie was easy and straight-forward. The tour with Julie was more like spending the day with an old friend showing us around their island home than like being on a standard guided tour. Julie's friendliness, knowledge of Bermuda and it's history, flowers, etc.. was awesome and extremely interesting. The tour was done at our pace with plenty of time to see and do what we wanted..extra time in St. George with casual lunch and shopping. Winsome's approach is "It's your tour, at your pace, to do and see what you wish!" Although, if it's your first time to Bermuda and you don't know your way around, they will make sure you see the best of the island during the time allowed.
Winsome is the best way to see Bermuda and we will definitely tour with them again and recommend them to anyone we know! Thanks Julie and Ralph!!

First, we would like to thank you for returning to Bermuda and choosing to tour with us again. We feel that returning visitors to the island helps to validate the work that Bermuda is doing as well as the experiences that we have the privilege to share with our guests. Our number one goal is to please our clients. As retirees, we could not think of a more fun way to spend our time.

Also thank you ever so much for taking time to write this review. This certainly helps us to retain our enthusiasm for the work we are doing.

We wish all the best and look forward to seeing you again someday.

Cheers

Our 6,5 hour tour could not have been better! From the well-informed, personable, accommodating guide, Robert, to the spacious, comfortable van, to the spot-on lunch stop--it was all better-than-expected. But it shouldn't have been--the pre-trip communication was great, so everything was in place for our family and friends to have an excellent overview of your island paradise. Good times!
