Leslie HolmesUnited States
Ronald was a fantastic tour guide. He was a great driver, knowledgeable about everything, and his van was beautiful. But he was especially thoughtful, proactive, a great communicator, and went above and beyond the call of duty. He was all of that even before he called to tell me that after the tour he found a glove in his car. What driver in New York City does that? And he drove into Mid-town! the next morning to return it to me. We will always remember the night he drove us around NYC at Christmas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Leslie. Thank you for your lovely review! It was my pleasure to spend the evening with you and your family. I am very pleased you enjoyed the tour. Happy Holidays and the best of New Year’s to you and the rest! Ronald

Ronald provided one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had while using Tours by Locals. The "Night Tour", guided by Ronald, provides many iconic vistas. We would recommend this tour to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Steven: Thank you for your review and very kind words! I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. I, too, enjoyed the time spent with you and your wife. I trust the rest of your visit goes well and you have a safe journey home. Until next time, Ronald
Karon BowersUnited States
We had a fantastic tour with Ronald. We saw everything promised and so much more. Ronald was an excellent guide, pointing out sights of interest (especially to my Hamilton fan son) and making sure we didn't miss anything spectacular we hadn't thought about. Highly recommend this tour and Ronald as a guide.
Kathy ChurchUnited States
I booked this tour for our last night in NYC. It was a perfect way to end our trip. Ronald is charming and knowledgeable and showed us sites with wonderful views. He also told us history about buildings and areas that was also fascinating. The car is very comfortable and he's an excellent driver. All in all a perfect evening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Kathy. Thank you for your review! I am so glad you and your husband enjoyed the night tour. I, too, enjoy our conversation and time together. I suspect by now you are home enjoying sunny Florida weather. Nice! All the best to you both. Ronald

Joyce TakemoriUnited States
Ron is super! He is knowledgeable; answered so many of my (sometimes dumb) questions and we had some fun conversations. He is intelligent, articulate, versatile, professional, courteous and congenial. He is more than 5-stars. "I Love NY" and Ron proved why.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Joyce. Thank you for your kind review and thank you for teaching me Hawaiian sign language. I had a great evening with you folks. I am glad to know you arrived home safely. Please give my regards to your husband. Aloha, Ronald. \_/ (my hand and fingers!)
Mary Ann DozierUnited States
Ronald was very familiar with New York City and with other areas, such as Washington, DC and the Hamptons. He was knowledgeable about the history of New York and showed us so many landmarks, both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Ronald was pleasant and easy to converse with, very thoughtful about our comfort, and drove carefully so we could enjoy all the sights. This was an exceptional tour because of Ronald!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mary Ann. It was my pleasure to host your group for the three tours. My best to all! Ronald
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Yulia: Thank you for your review! It was very nice to spend the evening with your group. I really enjoyed our conversations. Please give my regards to all! Ronald

Donna PaulCulver City, CA, United States
It took me a while to write this review (I was in NY in Sept 2016) but I really needed to say what a great tour guide Ronald was - he really made our visit to NY complete. We drove all over, stopping for some amazing photo opportunities! We even we to Carlos' Bakery in Hoboken, NJ and Katz's Deli. Ronald was very knowledgeable and the views were amazing. He is very willing to customize your evening based on places you want to visit. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Donna. Thanks for your review and high recommendation! I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. I need the money to live, but get my greatest satisfaction from helping guest appreciate all New York has to offer from great restaurants to great views. I hope to show you more on your next visit. Ronald

Edward ZajacUnited States
Great trip seeing the sites throughout NYC and the surrounding area. Rod was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. Great way to see the city by day and night. Would highly recommend both the day tour and the night tour as they give two different perspectives
Ronald was very professional and the tour was exceptional. We were a party of five. The modes of transportation was comfy, clean and perfect for a larger group. We enjoyed our tour and would highly recommended Ronald as a tour guide and would book another tour with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you enjoyed the night tour Heather and found it to be recommendable. Certainly, the city has a different and special beauty at night. I look forward to showing you more next time. Ronald
