We had an amazing day with Frances. Great way to see this incredible alien-like landscape while getting a lot about the history and the people of Aruba. Strongly recommended. Very knowledgeable guide.

A perfect tour! Frances figured us out very quickly and put together a wonderful itinerary that included everything we wanted to see plus lots more! We love taking photos and Florence found some amazing, off the beaten path locations for us to shoot. Florence's husband Shurby, also a fantastic guide, was our safe and alert driver. We had an amazing day!

We had an excellent tour with Frances. Knowing very little of Aruba we wanted a tour that would show us as much of the island as possible in the little time we were there and a guide that would be able to tell us all about the island and its people. This tour covered our requrements and much more. A highly recommended tour. Thank you Frances.

Frances provided an excellent tour and a most wonderful day! My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Frances as she showed us around the island, all the points of interest! We stopped for lunch at a local lunch spot on the water and enjoyed some of the freshest fish and shrimp I've ever had! All in all a great day led by a wonderful guide! Thank you!

Our day with Frances was amazing and we had an opportunity to see all parts of the island, and also learn about the local culture. We climbed up the Casabari Boulders and had a great perspective of the whole island, and we were able to see some of the beautiful beaches. We ended our day with a magnificent sunset, a beer at a local outdoor bar, and a drive to see some of the most beautiful Christmas decorations and lights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your day on Aruba. thank you so much for the positive feedback. I sincerely hope that you will re-visit our "happy Island" again in the future. Bon Bini as we say here (Welcome) Best wishes always Frances

Barbara GervisUnited States
Francis was a beyond wonderful guide. I felt like I was visiting a friend in a new place! We explored everywhere on the island I wanted to go ...(the natural bridge is not to be missed!), the best beaches , historical sights, had great fresh coconut water and even saw a pet cemetery right on the beach, which was very interesting to me. I have to say that no other shore adventure (I was on a ship ) gave me as good an overall feel for a place. I would definitely go back to Aruba based on Francis's tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Barbara for your glowing feedback. Yes we had a great day together and I sincerely hope that you will come back to Aruba. best wishes always Frances
Bonnie ChromikUnited States
Frances was charming and shared so much knowledge about the island and its history we are still trying to take it all in! The day went beyond our expectations and she truly was a pleasure to be with giving us insight into day to day living in Aruba, along with her flexibility for specific stops. By the end of the day we felt we had the most wonderful experience and had made a genuine friend on this happy island. She is truly a credit to her profession and we would highly recommend her tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your compliments! I had a wonderful day with you too and hope that you, Ginger and Maria will be back again on our Dushi Island soon! Warm Wishes and hugs Frances

Teresa WhittonUnited States
Frances was an excellent, educational, professional, and enjoyable guide. She detailed our excursion to include all beautiful photo opportunities to capture the true Aruba. As we saw all of the large tour buses leave the cruise terminal with large tour groups, we enjoyed the private tour--just Frances and the two of us. We were able to stop at any location we desired, and enjoyed seeing the sights that the ship excursions will never be able to provide. We highly recommend Frances and Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments Teresa. I had a fabulous time with you too. It was nice seeing the island through the eyes of the photographer! come again to our happy island, we will look forward to welcoming you back and showing off even more! best wishes - Frances
