How did I get here? My claim to fame on this little Island . I am the granddaughter of a Lighthouse Keeper. 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

This is not some packaged tour in which the guide is working from a prepared script. Heidi really knows Bermuda. She arrives on time with her van and immediately makes you feel comfortable as the tour begins. Heidi really enjoys her job of taking you to key locations on both ends of the island as well as to sites off... More

This was our first time in Bermuda, and we wanted to get an overview of the island. Heidi and her adorable little Buddy gave us so much more! She took us to places we never would've noticed on our own, gave us plenty if opportunities to get out of the van to explore and take pictures. She even went out... More

One of the best tours we've ever taken. We were in Bermuda and took Heidi's tour on Monday August, 17th. There were 8 in the van 6 from our group. One of our friends had some limitations on what he could do and she was great. Our tour also included lunch from the Seaside Grill. The fish sandwich was great.... More

This was our 16th cruise and my wife and I take excursions at every port we visit. Byways Tours by Heidi is the absolutely best excursion that we have ever taken. Heidi is great with pre-tour email communications which explained to us everything about the tour and where we would meet. On the morning of the tour Heidi was outside... More

Like others this tour sounded great and we were not disappointed. Heidi and Buddy picked us up on the nail at 9.00. We drove to Docklands to pick 4 more people up from a cruise ship and we had a wonderful day. It rained nearly all day and with cup match the day after Heidi had trouble locating somewhere for...

Thank you so much for this kind review. What a mess of a day that was. The skies refused to give one little bit !! Typically in July/ August we go into a drought.... that was very unexpected. Thanks for sticking with me, and laughing through it ! - Heidi - More

My family and I recently visited Bermuda on a cruise. We didn't know much about the island, nor did we have much time. We wanted an in-depth and unforgettable tour, Heidi delivered. The whole experience was great. Meeting Heidi (and Buddy) was more like reconnecting with an old friend, rather than meeting a random guide. Heidi was knowledgeable, friendly and... More

We just got back from a cruise to Bermuda on the NCL Dawn. Based on the many positive reviews here on Trip Advisor, we booked an island tour with Heidi. The title of my review says it all - we had a great day full of interesting sights, lots of fun and laughs. Despite an ill-timed torrential downpour (which just... More

That wasn't a downpour.... that was a Monsoon !!! Now that I look back on the day, I have to smile, but driving across the crossway with rain pelting, thunder crashing and the lightening stabbing the sky.... I wondered whether we would ever reach the other side ! I had a bunch of troupers that stuck with me through fish... More

I agree with all the details presented in other reviews so I won't repeat too much. We traveled the island from "tip to tip" and saw so many things (gardens, secluded beaches, dock yards, town of St. Georges, etc.). Heidi customized our tour by taking my mother-in-law past her childhood home which was so sweet of her. It's a long... More
