Joshua LevinsonWashington, DC, United States
Daniel is FANTASTIC! We booked the 3 day tour : Cartegena on Day1. Day2-3 included transportation (5 hours in a comfortable private van) to and from Tayrona National Park with a walking tour through the park. We can't say enough great things! Daniel is so thoughtful and goes above and beyond to make every aspect of the tour perfect. I wish the website allowed more space to post all of the examples in which he went out of his way for us. This 1st thing id tell a traveling friend is make sure to book Danny!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Joshua and Nicole For your feedback , i really enjoyed this 3 days tour with you . Hope I can meet you back in Colombia .
Gregory DahlUnited States
This was my second tour with Mr. Grey. The activities are well chosen and well organized. The introduction to the experience of Colombia provided by his knowledge, experience and energy makes these tours exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Dahl , it was an honor to meet you again in this new experience. Waiting for a third time .
Tricia S.United States
We loved having Daniel as a guide! He was very knowledgeable about both the city history and culture. He listened to what we were interested in and adjusted the day to make sure we got the most out of it. He was also engaging and made our tour a lot of fun. Spending the afternoon with Danny was like seeing Cartagena with a friend. We would definitely recommend him to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tricia, you will always be welcome to Cartagena and Colombia.
Deborah MaderWest Chester, OH, United States
We had the perfect tour with Daniel! He called us on the very rainy morning with instructions of the best way to stay dry when meeting him from our ship...much appreciated! Daniel is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, friendly and willing to make your tour fit your wishes. We would definitely tour with Daniel again and highly recommend him and his staff. Thank you Daniel for sharing your wonderful city with us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Deborah, for your feedback, it was such a great time with you.
Would have given a 5 star rating however the guide gave us explicit instructions not to get on the shuttle service. He knew my wife and another female had walking disabilities. The walk from the ship to the meeting point put both persons under extreme stress. Outside of this the day was great. Daniel did an outstanding job in showing us the real Columbia. His knowledge and insights to the city were fabulous.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John thank you for your review but remember that , this is not under my control , We depend on Port Authority regulations . They clearly said where to meet our customers and how to do it . But was great to meet you . I really enjoyed your visit .
Paul LancosUnited States
Daniel was an outstanding guide. Full of energy and always with a smile, he has a deep knowledge of Columbia in general and Cartagena specifically. Traveling in an air conditioned van we went to all of the main attractions of Cartagena. As well, he gave us a tour of neighborhoods that are rarely on a cruise excursion, which greatly aided our understanding of both the city and its people. We ended at a delightful cafe where we enjoyed delicious Columbian coffee and cold local beer. Mucho gracias!
Rick Lambardo R.United States
My fiancée and I were planning our first international trip together and decided to incorporate TBL into our itinerary. Boy did we hit the jackpot with our guide Daniel!! From the very outset, Daniel was attentive, engaging, and enthusiastic and made every effort to ensure that my fiancée and I were comfortable throughout. In short, Daniel showed us exactly what we wanted to see and more, making it truly an unforgettable experience. Also, hats off to our driver, Jorge, who was superb!! Thanks Daniel :-)
Matthew LonerganUnited States
Do yourself a favor and book a tour with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , for your 5 star rating .
Scott CorenUnited States
We went on a tour of the Rosario Islands with Daniel. He is a friendly and warm guide who was clearly good friends with many of the locals at the marina and beach that we toured, which helped get us great service and pricing. He also had many interesting stories and a deep knowledge of the area. We were thrilled with our tour, especially after seeing some other groups with much more crowded boats and less personalization. If we ever come back to Cartagena we would definitely book Daniel again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much ,For your Visit, we created Empathy , and you showed great interest to learn . that was the Key.
Michael OdanakaUnited States
Daniel was very accessible & responsive to all our inquiries & provided clear instructions on meeting place after disembarking from the cruise ship. Our driver expertly navigated the Cartagena traffic. We enjoyed a full 4 hrs visiting La Popa Monastery where tour buses could not get to, a stop at Castillo San Felipe de Barajas & walk and snack in the walled city. Highlight was walking thru colorful mural-filled Getsemani & especially the impromptu visit/lesson in coffee making with David at Cafe del Mural
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike, Thank you so much . it was fantastic to meet you, and share this experience with you.
Gay-Lynn CarpenterUnited States
We booked Daniel for a second time with our friends. They were as impressed as we were with Daniel's knowledge, energy and charm. He gave a us a fresh tour while also hitting some of the highlights again for our first time friends. If we return to Cartagena, Daniel will be our first call!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi , Lynn, it was great to see you one more time , and show you my beautiful City , Hope you come back again.
Ronald W.United States
Daniel is a fantastic guide, and if possible, an even better storyteller! I have used Tours by Locals many times and have never had a guide that was as good at establishing a rapport with me about what I wanted to see, hear and discuss with him. There were many highlights, but one thing that really sticks out were the stories he spun for me regarding Gabriel Garcia Marquez's many connections with Cartagena, down to his links with individual buildings. Fascinating! I would definitely recommend Daniel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ronald , It was great to meet you and share knowledge , you were such a fantastic listener and well - educated person .
Booking the tour was easy. Daniel gave us suggestions via e-mail for what we would want to see once we had told him how long we wanted the tour to be. The payment and instructions for meeting were simple and very clear. We were met at the appointed meeting place, (even though our ship docked early!) and taken to our transportation. The driver Maria was very good and Daniel gave an excellent tour. He was very good with the history of Cartagena. He showed us the high lights and was informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Shelly was great to meet you, and share this wonderful experience, hope you come back again.
Michael HughesUnited States
Daniel was a wonderful guide for Cartagena. He has been a guided for 5 years and it shows. His knowledge of Cartagena is deep. His English is excellent and we had no problems in communicating. As he got to know our interests he suggested some changes in the plan and they were all excellent ideas. We highly recommend Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mike , it was my honor to show you around, and make you feel like a local.
Ann PowerUnited States
In Cartagena, I especially wanted to see Churches and arts and crafts. Daniel was a perfect choice for a guide. He is professional and knowledgeable; his English is exceptional; and he is warm and caring. He is very good at understanding his client's personality and physical limitations and works in relation to that intuition. His insight is a terrific gift for a guide to have. Outstanding. I wish I could have remained a few more days. A delight!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ann , I have no words to say how much I enjoyed your visit , I felt very happy to have you as my guest.
Michelle ClaytonUnited States
Daniel is a fantastic storyteller! Energetic and passionate about Cartagena and Colombia. Friendly and accommodating. We would love to come back and will certainly choose Daniel as our guide on our return trip.

Ray PatelUnited States
From start to finish Daniel and his co partner gave us an outstanding tour and he is very informative and knows the landscape well. I highly recommend tourists ask for him . This is my 3 rd tour with this company in different countries and no planning a trip to Mexico City in April.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ray , You are such a wonderful person, it was a great honor to meet you here in Cartagena, and enjoy your stay. Please say Hello to your wife from me.
Nadav SharirRaleigh, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
Daniel was our guide for one day during our three day visit at Cartagena. He was an excellent guide and the best we ever had during our many trips with tours by locals. In addition, he helped us from the minute we landed. until we departed Cartagena. Daniel became our friend in addition to being a great guide. We wish that we could could give hime ten stars but unfortunately we are limited to five stars only. We definitely recommend him as your guide on your next trip to Cartagena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , your stay was fantastic , you became a good friend of mine in a short time .
John WilliamsUnited States
Daniel is an excellent tour guide. He also was of great help to a woman in our group who has difficulty walking. I cannot recommend him highly enough! BTW, Cartagena is a beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , for your review and your visit . Big Hugs .
Elizabeth DamonUnited States
Daniel is beyond a five star experience. I have hired private guides while traveling in China, Peru, Etc .. while all have been excellent. I think Daniel is the best for bringing the culture and ambience of his country, and just having fun An bringing Carttagto to life His breadth of knowledge is impressive but doesn't overwhelm you. We walked through the walled city, watched the sunset at Cafe Del Mar while enjoying a beer then off to a modern art museum and ended the evening in a famous salsa bar.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I enjoyed walking along the narrow street, Bringing History to life and interacting with the real Culture that we hope never lose in the past of time.
Judy HelmUnited States
Our day in Cartagena was wonderful. Daniel was an outstanding tour guide, sensitive to our needs and interests. He got us up to see La Popa on the feast day which was absolutely amazing. He is highly knowledgeable on a variety of topics. His driver, Ulysses, was competent and courteous and together they were able to get us into and out of places quickly, comfortably and efficiently. One of the best guides I've worked with! I highly recommend Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I really appreciate everything, hope we can meet again for a new Experience.
Luz HegiUnited States
Daniel Gray was a excellent guide, we had a private tour for four and he definitely made our tour very comprehensive as his knowledge and love for his city is very obvious, at the same time we choose our own leisurely pace. All four of us would definitely recommend you book with Daniel G!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, my tours won't be the same if there were not people like you interested to learn.
Bettina K.United States
We had very limited time in Cartagena off our cruise ship-time was too limited for this amazing city! Daniel did a superb job of showing us the highlights, so we got a good feel for the city. It was great to see the locals in action-and to have the opportunity for a deeper conversation about life in Colombia, history , and even race relations—we felt a deeper connection to the city and country than we ever could have on a bus tour. We hope to visit and tour with Daniel again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , I really enjoyed your visit and wishing a second visit soon . Cheers . Dan .
Kirstin AubeleUnited States
Daniel was great! I would definitely recommend him to anyone headed there. We got to see a lot in the short amount of time we were there. He was very professional and gave us a lot of great knowledge.

Nanci ZimmermanUnited States
We wanted an off the beaten track tour and Daniel provided it! I doubt too many tourists see the kitchen at the fish market! Daniel was attentive to our every desire and even found me iced coffee! We had a great tour of Cartagena, learned a lot and highly recommend our enthusiastic guide. He truly loves his city and so do we!

Daniel is very knowledgeable and friendly We had 8 kids in total and he did a great job of keeping them entertained!! Gets a 5/5 from us !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. , you were great to share with .
Michelle ReynosoUnited States
Daniel was quick to respond but heavily used WhatsApp to communicate. The meeting location could been clearer, as it's a half way marker on the walk path, it's not a shop or building. Overall a decent tour but could have been more. Communication was a factor as we had a 2:00 tour, moved to 2:30 then back to 2:00 because he was available. Didn't feel rushed but felt we could have done a bit more. Spell out what want! Don't assume he knows
Jeremy BoalUnited States
Daniel is a wonderful guide. Very well read on everything related to Cartagena - history, art, culture, food etc. We learned so much and had a great time!

Daniel gave us w/ a wonderful tour. He followed our suggestions & customized it. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable about Cartagena. It was on time, & we were even able to have an incredible lunch at a local restaurant I'd suggested. Dan helped me negotiate a local purse, & I was happy w/ the outcome. This was a very safe tour, & never did any of us feel intimidated by the local vendors. Ulyses was an expert driver, & our air conditioned van for our private tour was very comfortable. The best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is a great Honor for me to hear those wonderful reviews . Thank you so much .
Aileen C.United States
Daniel is a great guide - very professional, very knowledgeable and very thoughtful. My husband has a mobility issue and he got special permission to drive his car into the areas where no public vehicles were allowed in so that my husband would be able to see the sights in those beautiful and interesting areas. He also made sure that we saw every attraction that any tourist would want to see in Cartagena. He made our tour fun, interesting and memorable. Thank you again, Daniel, for the great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again , hope we meet again for another experience , Marry Christmas.
Elaine AuerbachUnited States
Daniel is an excellent guide. He and our driver were able to get us around Cartegena with ease. I was on a cruise with my husband and brother, who has difficulty walking. Daniel even managed to take us through the Old Town, getting permission to go where cars are usually prohibited. We saw the entire city and he gave us an informative overview and history lesson, which I enjoyed. All went well and I recommend him to anyone visiting the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review , I was really glad to help you see what others can’t .

Susan ThurberUnited States
Daniel did an amazing job showing us around Cartagena. He changed itinerary to meet our needs and made it such a special day. We were able to see and do things we never would have been able to in a group with a tour company. If you ever have the good fortune to be in Cartagena, Colombia do NOT miss the opportunity to experience it with Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing this experience with me .
We had a lovely day touring the National Aviary of Columbia with Daniel Grey and 6 cruisers off the Celebrity Reflection. Daniel loved showing us the magnificient birds at the Aviary. We were an older group with some challenges and Daniel pace the tour perfectly for our group. Daniel's a very personable and entertaining guide with excellent English and a knowledge and love of his country. We had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant after visiting the Aviary. Kudos also to our driver Edwin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ThAnk you so much Mary for choosing my experience . Hope we can meet again .
Meredith StoneUnited States
Daniel is an excellent guide. We only had a short time in Cartegana and in 4 hours we were able to see and learn a great deal. He is knowledgeable and friendly and we would love to have had more time in Cartegana. A much better experience than a group tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your Visit . You were such a wonderful family .
Kenneth ScholtzUnited States
Daniel gave our group of 5 a great tour of Cartagena highlights. We arrived on a cruise and were met at the dock by Daniel with a spacious 14-passenger air conditioned van. Daniel is a fun and engaging guide who is full of information and answered all our questions. We had a good opportunity to walk through the old town as well as a colorful residential neighborhood and to visit other historic sights. The day was topped off for us with lunch at a small and excellent restaurant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for choosing me as your private Guide in Cartagena , and share another amazing experience.
Judy M.United States
Wonderful tour. Daniel was an excellent guide. Took us to main tourist areas as well as a walking tour of local neighborhood that was really amazing. We were on a cruise so had limited time and could not have chosen a more knowledgeable or informative guide. The local areas and local art were a highlight of the tour and something we would never have seen on ship shore excursion. You can tell he truly loves his city and would HIGHLY recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear , you were such a wonderful group .
Laurie VisnerUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you great to hear back from you , You were such a wonderful family. Dan .
Kenneth D.United States
Daniel provided our party of four with a four-hour tour of Cartagena. One of our party uses a scooter and another a walker. The accessible van was quite useful, especially since we were able to drive into the pedestrian zone. Daniel customized the tour to meet our specific interests and used our time together to the fullest. Daniel was very personable, knowledgeable, and was most attentive to our physical limitations. Having a driver freed him to keep up a running commentary as well. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , Hope we can meet again soon.
Daniel enriched our day in Cartagena with facts, anecdotes, personal stories and local lore. Despite the deluge of rain, everyone (8 of us) enjoyed the day and felt we had gained insight into the history and culture of, not only this city, but of the country as well. We had the opportunity to view many sites both on foot and from the comfort of the wonderful vehicle provided. Daniel spoke excellent English and was easy for all to hear. If you are looking for a great experience contact him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Beth and your group for the memorable moment in Cartagena .

One of the biggest highlights of being on a Princess Cruise was our stop in Cartagena and scheduling a tour with Daniel! He tailor made our tour with where we wanted to go and we saw places we ordinarily wouldn't have had the opportunity to see. Danny was knowledgeable, personable, adorable (according to my daughters) and I would highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to book a tour with him, you won't be disappointed!!! Thanks Daniel for making our time in Cartagena so memorable!

Daniel was a fantastic guide. We notified him that the ship would be 2 hours late. He researched the traffic situation and reorganised our tour to fit in with the shortened time. He took us around the old city, to San Felipe fort and Convento de la Popa as well as the emerald and gold museums. He managed the time excellently whilst ensuring we saw most of the major sites. He was very informative about all topics that we asked him. We only wish we had more time to explore this lovely city.

Daniel was very knowledgeable and attentive. He took the time to explain and to show as much as he could about Cartagena. This is one of the best shore excursions that I have had on my many cruises.

Great time! Danny and his team were awesome. Everything was taken care of from transportation to and from our hotel, to organizing lunch and providing drinks throughout the trip. Danny was flexible and let us choose how we wanted to spend our day from when to eat lunch to when we wanted to leave and whether we wanted to go snorkeling. Danny will also get you to the island before the rest of the day trippers so you'll have some private time and have your pick of beach chairs. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . Really enjoyed your visit.
Carol LoveladyUnion, KY, United States

Doug EvansUnited States
If you are going to be in Cartegena for a day...Daniel is your guy. We were on a ship and only had 5 hours in town. He has lived here is entire life, is a great story teller, super personable, and our group of 16 loved the personal tour he provided. We were early and he was waiting for us and arranged the tour so that we saw things in an order that was different from the big group tours...thus avoiding huge crowds. We had a great day and learned a ton. Thank you my friend. Doug (Seattle, WA)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . I thank God i had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful Group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sr. Wonderful time .
Annette KelleyUnited States
We fell in love with Cartagena! Daniel was so informative about the history & current city story. Because he had a driver, too, we were able to walk around different areas of old city and be picked up later. Daniel helped us find good stores for mochillas (woven bags) and emeralds. Also the best shop to buy coffee to bring home. And, cigars! Took us backstage into Heredia Theatre, amazing place. He arranged dinner for us at Carmen which was a true gourmet experience & beautiful place. Highly recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . You are wonderful people.
Jeredith StifterUnited States
Danny is a terrific guide. In addition to his knowledge, listening skills, and wonderful personality, he has a passion for Cartagena and its people. Our hotel manager told us Danny is well known, hugely respected, and very professional — the best guide in Cartagena. And we can see why!

Daniel was great. He was on time and explained everything before the tour began. He was very personable and friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Being a local, he gave us a more local and personalized experience than what our cruise ship counterparts were getting from the massive cruise excursion tours they booked with with 40 other people. We have another tour booked tomorrow. Thanks Daniel. See you tomorrow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , great to see you tomorrow.

Tamara WynnUnited States
can't say enough about how awesome our tour with Daniel was today! We love to go where the locals really are, where they shop, live and eat. Daniel turned us on to amazing street food-Fried cheese rolls, this egg meat cornbread thing and the craziest looking fruit I ever saw-tasted delicious! He took us to this trendy coffee shop, had fantastic carrot cake,even got to make my own plantain and eat it...Daniel was engaging, and knowledgeable...we saw all the landmarks too and more-hotels the theater! A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I have no words to say thank you for loving my city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I really loved your Visit.
Cherie G.United States
Daniel was a wonderful tour guide & gave us a great day in Cartagena. He was very easy to work with to prepare our customized cruise excursion & was flexible as our group expanded from 12 to 25. The coffee tasting was a highlight for a lot of our group with the only negative being the heat in the facility & the lack of a mic so everyone could hear. Our walk through old town & lunch was enjoyed by all. Many said it was the best excursion they ever had. I highly recommend Daniel G.

What a great day we four seniors had in Cartagena! Thanks to Daniel, we were the only ship's passengers who were able to visit La Popa Monastery. Daniel also organised a tour of the old fort and the old town for us, among other things - nothing was too much trouble. We found him to be very accommodating and knowledgeable and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to see all that is possible to see in a limited time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much . Wishing you come back .

Daniel was a terrific guide, friendly, full of information, prompt and made the tour a delight! His commentary as we drove or walked around was interesting and personalized. He took us to a shop where an expert in coffee roasting gave us a private "class" in coffee making -- along with a delicious Irish coffee. His tour was a true highlight of our entire trip!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment This is what I love doing . Glad you enjoyed.

I just realized when booking another tour through ToursByLocals that I hadn't reviewed Daniel in Cartagena, Colombia last year. Many apologies Daniel! We had a wonderful, informative tour, Daniel knows his city and showed us so many interesting sights. We booked the tour and asked a few other cruise passengers to join us and they all thought TBL was a fantastic idea and enjoyed the tour as much as we did.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review.

Daniel was exceptional. Everyone in our group said that Daniel's tour of Cartagena was the highlight of the Panama Canal Cruise. He was easy to understand, funny and he worked very hard to make sure that we were given a tour that everyone loved.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I really had fun too.

Daniel was waiting for us at the port when we arrived. We had a very short port stop in Cartagena and had to be back on board by 1:30. We never felt rushed, and he gave us a great overview of the area. The walking tour of the old city was the highlight, and he kept the pace slow enough so that everyone was comfortable. Daniel has a great sense of humor. We even had time to stop for a local beer. We enjoyed our tour and Cartagena very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your Visit , hope we can meet again soon.

Daniel did a fabulous job with our tour. Our group of 5 all agreed that it i was the highlight of our ten-day Panama Cruise. For those in wheelchairs, a private tour is the way to go! Daniel was so informative And definitely gave us our moneys worth! We definitely want to return the Cartegena and book another tour with Daniel some day,. We saw more of the city then we never would have seen on a cruise tour. Great job Daniel and Pedro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary for trusting in our Job. Best for all of you.
