This was a wonderful tour!! Our guide,Camral, did a great job of showing us the island. It was a very informative tour while being laid back and relaxing. He gave us time to tour the Dockyard and have lunch and made an off the main road drive to spend a short amount of time at the donkey refuge. We have already referred this tour to some friends who are planning on being in the area soon. There were only 4 of us in the van and was so much better than going on a bus with a 20-30 people. A real winner!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: it's been a pleasure showing you all my island. hope to see you soon
We had a wonderful day with Camral! His knowledge of Antigua and its history made our beautiful tour even more meaningful. Camral is punctual, friendly and has a keen sense of humour. We would definitely spend another day with him learning more about this amazing island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Kim it was a pleasure showing you my island. hope u come again soon!
We had a wonderful day with Camral. He picked us up at our hotel on time with a very clean and comfortable van and a huge smile on his face! We spent the next 5 hours seeing his Island, learning about its history and its people. Camral was pleasant, helpful, informative and had a great sense of humour! We would highly recommend Camral!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sharon. I had a great time and I was very happy to show you around my island. Thanks for the recommendation also. See you again.
We were a group of 4 arriving by cruise ship, who did the 5 hour tour of Antigua with Camral. We had the most amazing day with him. He was informative, funny and a great guide. We also met his mother during the day who was very nice. I highly recommend doing a tour with Camrel. He does this because he likes his job and his country and it shows. So much more personnal that being 50 people on a bus. We were in an air conditioned van. Very clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Theresa for such kind remarks. I am very happy you had a great time and I hope I will see you again. Say hi to the others.

Camral is an excellent guide. We learned quite a bit about Antigua
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert. Do come again. It was a pleasure.
Lee SmithUnited States
Our guide Camral was informative and entertaining. He explained to us Antigua's history and culture. We saw many beautiful sites like Mt. Obama and Fort James. We highly recommend a tour with Camral.
Camral gave us a wonderful tour of Antigua. We were in port on a cruise and none of the ship's tours offered us as complete a tour as Camral gave us. I would unhesitatingly recommend Camral.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you June for your kind remarks. It was nice to have you on my tour. Hope you can visit again.
Jeff FishbeinUnited States
This was a fantastic opportunity to see a new part of the world through the eyes of someone who grew up there. There is much to see in Antigua, and Camral made sure we saw all of it. Of all the tours we took on our cruise, this was by far the best!
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
Camral met us promptly at the port with his comfortable van and a big smile. He is very knowledgeable and gave us a brief history of the island during our three hour tour. A fun morning! 5 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Barbara! it's been a pleasure showing you guys my island. be sure to come again.
William SchwartzMurphysboro, ILLINOIS, United States
Our tour didn't start out the best when I couldn't locate Camral as he was not where we agreed to meet. I will say that our ship was delayed getting into port, however, no one knew him or could give us any information about him. That is until I went up to a woman in the off chance it was his mother and it was. She said he would be arriving shortly and called him. Not a good way to start the day! It got better but was not the best tour I have had on Antigua.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Schwartz thanks for the review. I must let you know that I was at the Exoctic Antigua store waiting and since I did not see you my mother decided to walk over to the tourism information booth which is just outside the security gate while I wait at the Exoctic Antigua Store which was the meeting place and you were not there. However my mother found you and call me to come across to meet you so I went to bring the vehicle a bit closer for you. I was on spot before the arrival of the ship and waited.
Wendy B.United States
There was a bit of confusion in meeting for the tour. We were early and waited past the meeting time, but the guide wasn't in sight and didn't call me. After I called him, we eventually met up for the tour. Tour was in a comfortable car. Camral was a good driver and answered most of our questions. There isn't all that much to see in Antigua, but it was nice to get away from the port and see the rest of the island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Wendy. I am very sorry for the misunderstanding of the meeting location hence the reason why I caught up with you a bit late which I am very sorry about. Please vist my lovely island again.
Glen WebberRegina, SASKATCHEWAN, Canada
This is a very good tour that will get you all over the island. As with most Tour by Locals tours and shore excursions, they offer an adaptive tour to your desires. The guide was excellent and the shore excursion was ours, not a 40 passenger bus, but a nice clean AC van. Stop where you want: sites or stores or bank etc.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Glen for your rating
Glyn DeakinUnited Kingdom
Thank you Camral for a wonderful day. It was what we hoped for plus more. We saw all the sites and even tried black pineapple at Camral's expense. A truly great guy with a wonderful knowledge of his birthplace. We would recommend him to anyone considering a trip in Antigua. Nothing was too much trouble and the transport was a comfortable air conditioned people carrier which was ideal on a warm day. Possibly our best ever tour. Hope to see you again one day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you alot. i hope to see you again as well.
Maura MazzerUnited States
My mother uses a wheelchair (not confined to it) and Camral had this cool van where the side door slides open and the chair comes out of the door and almost onto the sidewalk, mom hops on, and then the chair is lifted back into position on the inside of the van! He did a wonderful job taking us everywhere and letting us stay as long as we wanted. He was a treasure of info, we got to eat black pineapple and I think he got a kick out of me getting toasted on the Dixie cup of rum punch I had!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you maura, it was a pleasure taking you and your mother on the tour and both of you were lovely. I wish both of you all the best
Andrea LatishUnited States
Camral He was our guide for Antigua. He was the best. We arranged where we wanted to go and he didn't miss one thing. He showed us places he knew. He was always interactive with us and knew a lot about the island. We had a great day he had a sense of humor and was always smiling. Get him if you can!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrea for such kind comments. I was really happy to have you on my tour. Please visit us again.
Elaine WeissUnited States
Our tour was delightful and we enjoyed Camral's sense of humor. We got to see everything we wanted to in the short amount of time ashore we had. The only thing I would recommend in the future is to have a more specific location and signage for meeting your guide. We had to ask around and other guides contacted him to get to us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elaine. I am really happy you had a wonderful time. Do come visit my beautiful island again. Sorry for the misunderstanding in the meeting location which is at the EXOTIC ANTIGUA STORE.
5 stars for a great Antigua tour����thank you so much Camral!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ruth for your excellent rating. Please do visit my lovely island again.

Robert TatorUnited States
Camral was lots of fun. He took us to many wonderful sites for pictures. ToursByLocals was a great choice, as always. We had plenty of room in his a/c vehicle and were never rushed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr. Tator. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour. Do visit my lovely island again.
The tour was not well organized. The guide appeared to be bored with his guests. Rather than stop for us to explore the areas of interest he would drive by, pointing them out & making a few comments about what we might have seen. The only stop was Nelson's dock yard, where we were asked to pay to get in & had another guide offer great information and direct us to a lunch spot. I would not recommend this guide.
Charles MartinNew Palestine, IN, United States
Camral was very knowledgeable of the island and was easy to understand.He even drove us by a couple of beaches that were not on the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Charles. I am very happy that you had a great time. Please visit us again.
Jeffrey NealUnited States
Camral was very knowledgeable and very courteous. We had a great time. We injoyed the personal interaction you don't get with the big tour companies.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey for those kind words and excellent rating. Camral said he enjoyed having you all on the tour. Do visit us again
Robert FischerUnited States
Camral was a very pleasant person and very knowledgeable about Antigua. We saw a lot, but missed 1 stop that was somewhat important to me. I would highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Fischer for such excellent rating. I enjoyed showing you around my lovely Island and do invite you to visit us again. I am very sorry we were unable to make that stop.
Ian D.Wellington, New Zealand
Camral took us to many places on his island and was knowledgeable about each. He was very understanding of what tourists like to see - the major things of interest - so he made sure that we were happy with his selection. We also enjoyed his explanations of the local situations with regard to economy, politics, social issues and customs etc. That makes a tour much more informative. Helen
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Helen for such kind review. I am very happy that you had a wonderful time in Antigua and enjoyed my tour. Do come again.
