Owner description: 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

Heidi has grown up in Bermuda, and is a natural tour guide for the island. She took us from one end of the island to the other with a picnic lunch stop included, and a walk on the beach, which can be a traffic challenge on this island, if you only have a few hours. Her knowledge of the island... More

Heidi promptly picked us at the cruise ship terminal and gave us a great tour of the island. She is friendly, very knowledgable and extremely informative about the history, geography and people of Bermuda. We visited areas of the island that I'm sure that other tours don't visit. She went out of her way to take us to a place... More

When they both started talking about how their parents had repeatedly come to the island and played at Mid Ocean Club, I had no choice but to show you the beauty and magic as to why they fell in love with the golf course and Bermuda !!! Thanks so much for posting !! Hope you'll return !! - Heidi - More

August 2014 we had a great tour of Bermuda. Heidi took us to places that I would never have seen if it wasn't for her tour. I had been to Bermuda 5 times before. She picked us up on time and although it was raining we still did the tour. She took us to Gibbs Light House where her grandfather... More

I took this tour after tropical storm Fay hit the island and just 2 days before hurricane Gonzalo swept in. Heidi had not had power since Fay but picked me up with a smile on her face. We toured the entire island and she shared information about Bermuda and a ton of history relevant to our stops. It is very... More

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
