My husband Richard and I, together with his brother and wife enjoyed our time with Kathleen M. very much. Kathleen was so knowledgeable and friendly. We would definitely recommend Kathleen as a tour a guide. We would rate our excursion with Kathleen as a five-star tour.

Kathleen was a pleasure. She picked us up from the cruise port. We went to an historical park and toured La Romana. Our ship originally was supposed to go to Punta Kana but the seas were to rough for tender.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review! It was great being with your group for the shore tour!

Kathleen took us to all the places on the itinerary. The highlight of the tour was when she took us to a sugar cane plantation school for children. She brought gifts of coloring books, crayons and paints. She also brought handmade bracelets for the kids that my wife and I got to put on their wrists. We saw so much appreciation in the kids eyes and gratefulness from the school principal and teacher. It was a lot of fun meeting the kids.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your response! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Cultural Tour of the coffee, chocolate and cigar factories, rum tasting, Basilica and sugar plantation. The sugar plantation kids are so adorable and appreciative of our visit. Thank you for taking an active part in helping them. I had lots of fun being with you and your wife for the day!
I wanted to arrange a romantic tour for my parents 50th anniversary. She made a lot of great suggestions using her knowledge of the local towns and sites, and what they had to offer. On the trip, she went above and beyond and paid SPECIAL ATTENTION to DETAILS to ensure it was truly romantic just like I had hoped. They also has a fresh, delicious meal at a clean local restaurant. My parents said she was warm, friendly and made them comfortable. They always felt safe on the tour. I recommend Kathleen 100%
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Had a great time taking them on their tour to Boca de Yuma.

This was my first time using a service like Tours by Locals. Kathleen was extremely personable and was very accommodating with our group. She drove us around in her our vehicle (clean and tidy) from our hotel in Punta Cana to La Romana. Took a boat to Catalina Island, which served a beautiful buffet. Kathy was punctual and her communication before the trip was on point. The tour was exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend Kathy to everyone. We really enjoyed our private day trip with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thanks for the great review! I enjoyed every minute with you guys. You were lots of fun to be with. Thanks for everything!

Enjoyed our tour. So worth it compared to the stock trips the resorts offer. No picking up people from numerous resorts and getting a late start on the day. No waiting for a bus load of people to herd to a destination. No buffet that is picked over. Kathy enjoyed being the tour guide and it shows. Would use this service again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great! I’m so glad you enjoyed your tour! I could tell you loved eating lunch at Boca de Yuma, just like I do. It’s so beautiful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments. They are helpful for the future tours. My Spanish is very basic, but I’m working on it! I was able to arrange the tours at the churches in Spanish, but I often get a guide in the local place who knows all about the location to assist me. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels!
