Raymond did an excellent job tailoring the tour to our interests and time schedule. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer a wide range of questions throughout the course of the tour. This was our first "Tours By Locals" experience and we would not hesitate to book a future tour based on the great job Raymond did.
