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

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

What a wonderful way to get to know Bermuda, hear its rich history and enjoy the sites, tastes and sounds (with great photo opps!) of from the A/C comfort of a small group tour! Heidi & Buddy picked us (a 15, 47, 67 and 72 year old group of women) up exactly at 10:30 as planned via our email communications.... More

Two years ago I took this tour with my son. There were also another couple from our cruise that went on the same tour. The tour was excellent, we saw things that I have never seen before in Bermuda and never would have seen. It was pouring that day and Heidi was great we went to a couple of beaches,... More

BermudaOnion2013, Owner at Byways Tours, responded to this review

Oh dear Judy. If we hadn’t of made that drive to Dockyard, you wouldn’t have driven through the back roads, seeing Dockyard from a true historical side. You would have missed the small draw bridge, the lighthouse and you would have missed all the stories along the way. That drive with pointing out interesting tidbits, homes, graveyards and funny memories... More

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a trip to a trip to Bermuda. We loved our tour of Bermuda with Heidi and Buddy and 6 new friends from Pennsylvania. We had a ball! Heidi makes Bermuda seem like home. Her knowledge of Bermuda's history lets you soak in its culture and imagine a time long before... More

Heidi and Buddy were waiting for us at the dockyard, and we were off on a wonderful wet adventure. Over the next 6 hours we were treated to a very informative tour of the island with a lot of inside knowledge. Despite the rain we explored the lighthouse, the coves, the churches and more. Every thing we passed Heidi had... More

Absolutely one of the best tours I have ever taken anywhere in the world. Heidi is very informative and accommodating. Really thankful we took her tour and learned so much about Bermuda for our 1st visit. Ready to go back and explore many of the places we visited again. Lunch of the fish sandwich on cinnamon raisin bread was great... More

We cruised to Bermuda arriving on June 6th in the early afternoon. Since we started at 1:30 we got the "shortened" version of the tour but I can't imagine seeing more than we did. Back roads. Island history. How it's changed over the years and continues to change. We were joined by some native Bermudians who with their stories and... More

I was on a cruise with 10 other people who wanted to snorkel/scuba, which isn't for me, so I signed up for Byways Tours. Heidi knows this island inside out and she shared lots of cool facts you might not get on a regular tour. Her tour van is comfortable, and she uses a mic so you can hear everything... More

My mother came to visit and I wanted her to experience as much of Bermuda as she could. The Byways Tours is the BEST way to do this. Heidi picked us up in Dockyard and took us on an amazing adventure that started the second we got in her very comfortable and air conditioned minibus. We went down back roads... More
