About the tour

Your guide Tony will walk you through the historic Royal Naval Dockyard, one of Bermuda’s most popular destinations. The historic Royal Naval Dockyard anchors the West End. The Dockyard is home to a major cruise ship port and serves as a hub for sightseeing, shopping, dining, entertainment and an array of island experiences. The America's Cup 2017 was raced from this spot. Bermuda was the principal base of the Royal Navy in the Western Atlantic between American independence and the Cold War. Bermuda had occupied a useful position astride the homeward leg taken by many European vessels from the New World since before its settlement by England in 1609.

Tony

I was raised in the entertainment world by my father who opened Bermuda's 1st International nightclub the 40 Thieves Club in 1962. Everyone from Mel Torme, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Ike & Tina Turner, Wilson Pickett, Tom Jones and dozens more performed at the 40. In 1970/1971 I was assistant to the tour manager on the Tom Jones US tour. In 1978 I built Bermuda's 1st disco - Disco 40. I have produced entertainment in Bermuda for over 30 years and created the Lennon Bermuda Peace Day Concerts. Artists I brought to Bermuda include: Nils Lofgren, Paul Carrack, Paul Young, Hiram Bullock, John Sebastian, Billy Preston, Jeff Golub, Roger McGuinn, Judie Tzuke, Squeeze, Maxi Priest, Shaggy, Biggie Irie, Splashband, Spice & Co, Tony O'Malley, Jimmy Keys, Peaches & Herb, Gary US Bonds, The Fab Faux, Ramsey Lewis, Stanley Turrentine, The Hamish Stuart Band, Jamie Lawson. If I could describe myself in only one sentence, that would be... MUSIC IS MY LIFE. Besides being my livelihood, music has been, through all these years, my inspiration, my joy, my solace in times of trouble, and my compass when I've lost my direction. Music gives me energy and purpose, adds meaning to my actions and always brings a ray of sun that guides me through the darkest night.

Tony has been guiding since Mar 2021
