I am interested in local history, cultural immigration and industrialization.
I have traveled the world and understand what it is like to see a destination through a locals eye.

A Recent Review of this guide

Our Tours by Locals guide did a great job. She took her time with us and did everything she could to help us have a good time on our tour from Sydney NS. Much better than those crowded tour ship excursions. A little more expensive but well worth the added cost. Compare Peggy's Cove with a thousand fellow tourists to a quiet view over the bay at Ingonish. No comparison.
