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

My husband and I took a short break to Bermuda last week. I'd been on many previous occasions but this was his first time. I really wanted to make him see the true beauty of the island and - despite my many visits - had never actually taken a tour. I chose Heidi after reading the reviews in Tripadvisor and... More

We were in Bermuda for three days last September aboard the Celebrity Summit’s last cruise of the season. We long ago discovered that small, independent tours are often far superior to the “cattle call” excursions offered by the ship. And being the compulsive planner that I am, I start researching the best tour options about six months prior to departure.... More

My husband and I were in Bermuda on business for several days, and arranged for Heidi to pick us up at the airport and tour us around for the remainder of the day, until after sunset. It was great to get off the plane and have a friendly face waiting for us with a sign with our name on it.... More

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
