A Recent Review of this tour

Chau Lee "Joe" was right there at the port when the six of us women got off the ship. No problem finding him. He has such a great sense of humor and his English was very good. He kept us on track which wasn't easy for him with 6 women. We all had a wonderful experience. I've have always taken ship excursions but after this, I will definitely do a Tours By Locals tour again.
