A Recent Review of this tour

Emelda picked us up promptly at 8:30 from our hotel and took us on a wonderful tour of Antigua. We found her to be very knowledgeable and friendly. We never felt rushed while we took in the beautiful scenery of Antigua. She even accommodated us in a search for a restaurant which belonged to a friend's relative in St John's and waited while we popped in to say hello. We will definitely use Tours By Locals again, and absolutely contact Emelda again when we return to Antigua! Linda Taylor
