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

We always do our homework whenever we travel, looking for the best that each place has to offer. After reading all the positive reviews of Heidi and her Byways Tours, we gave her a call. It was very last-minute (we had booked a snorkeling tour but cancelled for a number of reasons), but luckily Heidi was able to add our... More

I booked this tour after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I did. We were on a 5 day cruise to Bermuda, with an overnight dock stay. There were five of us, including my 72 year old parents and our 10 year old son. Heidi was right on time picking us up. My son got to sit... More

We spent a day with Heidi and her dog on a 6 hour tour of Bermuda. Heidi being a native of the island was very helpful in taking us to places you would never find on your own. Our tour included five other people who fit in well with us. As part of the tour Heidi also provided a fine... More

We recently started off a wonderful week in Bermuda by spending the day with Heidi, and her trusty co-pilot Buddy (a sweet, blind pup). As it was Bermuda Day, the traffic was chaotic, but that didn't stop Heidi from getting us around, skillfully arranging the schedule and hitting some backroads (and no roads!) to get us to all the places...

We just returned from a cruise to Bermuda. We spent our first day in Bermuda on a tour with Heidi and Buddy. We learned so much on that tour. Bermuda is absolutely beautiful and Heidi gave us a picture of life there. We learned so much and made many stops so that we felt we had experienced Bermuda and not... More

Located this tour company thanks to Trip Advisor. Using email, reserved three slots on tour for May 7th, about three months prior to cruise to Bermuda. Emails were quickly responded to by Heidi. Met Heidi on day of tour at designated time and location. Tour proved to be all promised and more. The glowing reviews above are all very much... More

We visited Bermuda by cruise ship on 23 April and took a day tour with Heidi who is Bermuda Footsteps/Byway Tours. Heidi is a true Bermudian who was just a joy to correspond with and to spend a glorious day with. Eight of us, who had met on Cruise Critic, met Heidi, along with her lovely little dog, Buddy, on...

we were fortunate enough to tour with Heidi and Buddy last Monday. Heidi knows the island well and is very flexible. The weather wasn't great and some attractions were closed, but Heidi made the best of it. The fish sandwich lunch was one of the best meals that I had in Bermuda

Heidi must be one of the nicest people you will ever encounter! Her knowledge of the Island, along with her stories of childhood adventures in the lighthouse, make for a fantastic way to spend a day exploring Bermuda. She definitely went out of her way for us and we will not forget this. Bless you Heidi (and Buddy), we definitely... More

One of the most interesting, enjoyable, informative tours that we have experienced. Heidi, along with her sweet dog "Buddy", did an exceptional job of introducing us to the history of the Island, unique spots, and beautiful locations in Bermuda. Really enjoyed the leisurely lunch in the beautiful town of Flatts. We highly recommend this tour.
