I come from a long line of Lighthouse Keepers (Gibbs Hill Lighthouse) and am a 6th generation Bermudian. My grandfather was the last of the last lighthouse keepers before Gibbs Hill went electronic, and I grew up in the house that is attached to lighthouse. My passion in my tours stems from the passion for the Island that I call home. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to Bermuda and sharing our Island Magic.- Heidi « less

Heidi, being the true Bermudian glutten that she is, picked us up after 2 hours of CRAZY traffic from an unexpected storm the night before. She had no power and yet, still showed up with a smile on her face! It was by far one of the best parts of our trip. Meeting her and Buddy and the other 6... More

Had a wonderful experience with Heidi and Buddy recently on this tour. Covered the entire island from one end to the other and numerous places of interest in between. I would suggest you take this tour as early as you can during your stay. We were only able to make reservations on the next to last day of our stay.... More

I was on a cruise ship that docked in Bermuda. Heidi and Buddy picked me and 6 other cruise passengers up at the dock for a day of touring. The tour was all day and well worth it. We only saw other tour buses from the ship at two of the stops. Heidi is a lifelong Bermuda resident and took... More

This is the most beautiful place I gave ever visited, and we have Heidi (and Buddy) to thank for such a wonderful time. They picked us up right beside our ship, on time, and with smiles. We had high hopes after reading the reviews, and we certainly weren't disappointed. I will tell everyone I know to tour with Heidi when... More

One of the best tours we ever took. We never take ship tours or pkg land tours as we do our own small private tours. Heidi is one of thebest we had. She is pleasant and knows the island very very well. Can not say enough about her tour. If you miss her you miss a lot. Jimnarlene nj

We traveled to Bermuda in early August and were able to coordinate with Heidi to meet us on our first day (she even accommodated an early docking by the cruise ship). She was punctual, pleasant, knowledgeable and agreeable. The tour began before we even left the Dockyards, as she has an insane amount of knowledge of her home island. She... More

We've been to Bermuda before, but never saw it as intimately as we did with Heidi. She promised us a five hour tour of the island, and gave us almost 8 hours! She taught us the history of this gorgeous island, gave us an in-depth view of the eco-systems that keep everything alive, and drove us from one end to... More

Heidi and Buddy gave us an wonderful tour of their beautiful Bermuda island. It was the best 7 hours we could have spent on this scenic island. Heidi loves her home and she takes great pride in showing it to her guest. As for the fish sandwich, it was without a doubt the best I have ever had. If you... More
