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 was one amazing tour. We were a group of 5, me, my wife, a teen, an adult child, my brother-in-law, plus another couple for a total of 7. The passenger van is very comfortable and there is a loudspeaker so there is no problem hearing any of interesting history, legends, etc. It is apparent that Heidi truly enjoys what... More

Before our first visit to Bermuda on a cruise ship, we decided to research tours that were not your typical "tourist" tours headed for trendy places or fancy shopping. We wanted to experience a tour as close to the "local" experience as possible, with real history and out of the way places. This is exactly what we got with Heidi... More

This was the third tour my husband and I took with Heidi and Buddy. I just can't begin to tell you how awesome these tours are. Every time we tour with Heidi she shows us something different and interesting. Her knowledge is endless. The love, pride, and respect she has for her little island is evident every moment of this...

This was the best tour imaginable because Heidi is a wonderful person who really knows the island. She has lived here all her life, and she brings you to places that you wouldn't normally see on a "packaged" tour. Heidi is very mindful of bathroom breaks and everyone's comfort. You learn so much about the history, and you learn a... More

Heidi was everything others have said - punctual and professional while providing a great tour. She knows Bermuda - history, stories, traditions. What we enjoyed most was her easy going personality and the fact that she picked up on what all of those in the van were interested in seeing and adjusted the tour accordingly - spending a bit more...

Lunch was very bizarre ,but unbelievable. It was the best sandwich I ever had,-with fish, tartar sauce, and raisin bread. The tour guide was from the area and very personable and accommodating. Heidi, the tour guide, knew everything about the area's history. I felt I got my money's and then some.

My goodness! We expected a tour of Bermuda, but we did not expect a royal visit! Heidi and Buddy did a wonderful job of relating Bermuda's history as well as facts that went beyond the normal touristy stuff you hear on cattle call bus tours! Everything positive that you read on these boards about Heidi's tour is spot on .... More

We were a very small group, my husband and I, and one other couple. Heidi picked us up at the Naval Dockyard where our ships had docked.Heidi took us all over the island. We had a great tour, saw the whole island and learned about it's history. We loved touring with Heidi, it was like visiting a friend.

I was lucky enough to spend the day with Heidi and Buddy last week. It was the highlight of my trip to Bermuda. I learned so much about this very lovely island and had a great time doing it. Heidi has a wealth of knowledge, a great sense of humor and a warm, friendly spirit. Hanging out with darling little... More

We booked this tour of Bermuda based on the reviews here and we did not regret it. Myself, my wife and my Mom all were on a cruise to Bermuda, our first trip to Bermuda, and it was my Mom's first cruise ever, and really my first time my Mom has ever left the US except for to Niagara Falls... More
