Roger was absolutely amazing. He was of course on time in a clean van. His driving skills were wonderful - our group felt completely safe. Most importantly, Roger was amazingly knowledgeable regarding Atlanta history and all of the families making up Atlanta history. He was entertaining, charming, and informative I would recommend him to anyone considering a tour of the city. He gave us more than our money's worth, an amazing experience, and we feel we have made a new friend.

Roger is an excellent tour guide. We enjoyed all the city pass attractions prior to this tour, but this tour was the best part of our trip.

This was a fabulous tour. Roger was so knowledgeable and had a real passion for the city which really came through in his commentary. He was a great driver and made you feel very comfortable. He was very engaging and was interested in where we came from and imparted so much inside information and knowledge to us. He even recommended and dropped us off at a great traditional restaurant for lunch which we would never have found on our own. I would highly recommend Roger and this tour .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, very much Ms. Monk. It was a real pleasure touring with you and your friends. I could tell you all were real history lovers. Roger P.

This tour exceeded all expectations! Our guide, Roger, was incredibly knowledgeable about Atlanta history, the many different areas of the city, current events, people, and fun facts! He was very considerate, courteous and an excellent driver. Comfortable, clean van. He tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted. A family member is thinking of moving to Atlanta and wanted to get a good overview. We have lived here 22 years and saw things we had never seen before! We will request this again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Connie, Thank you and your family for the great time we all had on tour. I really enjoy touring with people that love and appreciate history. You all were the best audience and I felt like we became friends. I also want to thank you for recommending me to your friends and I look forward to touring with them too. Roger P.
Eunice FeltonMemphis, TN, United States
Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, confident, courteous and accommodating. We chartered a 56 passenger coach for our family reunion and everyone was pleased. In addition to a family tour it was also a history lesson. I did not know the depth of Atlanta's history until after this tour. We will be going back to Atlanta. Thanks Roger P

Donna FlynnUnited States
Roger's tour of Atlanta was fabulous. Historical background gave us context for understanding the exciting development of modern Atlanta and its anticipation of a bright and prosperous future for all segments of its diverse population. A stop at the MLK Center was both informative and inspiring. Roger is a well informed, articulate storyteller and it was a real pleasure to spend 4 hours with him. His tour enriched our stopover in Atlanta and made us unabashed fans of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ms. Flynn, Thank so much for the opportunity to work with your family and friends. I always enjoy working with an enthusiastic group of history lovers. It’s inspirational and it brings out the best in me. So thank you again to you and your group. Roger P.

Colleen OldenburgAppleton, WI, United States
We only had a few hours to see Atlanta and "wow" did we get our monies worth! Roger is full of knowledge about the city and its history. He picked us up at the hotel with his transportation and filled the time with sightseeing and facts. We always felt safe with Roger at the wheel in Atlanta traffic! I would recommend this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Colleen, I really enjoyed touring with you all and I learned a lot from you too….
Heidi SteeleUnited States
The tour and our guide made this day a great experience. We saw Atlanta in a very meaningful way, learning about history, trends, developments and events. Roger managed his way through the traffic, pointing out neighborhoods and landmarks we had discussed before we started. Being able to tailor what we saw to our preferences, made all the difference. This is THE way to show visitors around Atlanta. I will book more tours with Roger. His knowledge and planning are impressive. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Heidi, I really enjoyed touring with the three of you. I hope you and the young ladies learned more about Atlanta than you did before the tour.
Neil O'ConnorMadison, MS, United States
Roger is a most entertaining and knowledgeable guide with a sense of humor and only too happy to please. Roger made the tour absolutely delightful, so much so that the 10 year old grandson was asking questions as we were, and not once did he ask "Are we there yet?" Great job Roger, and a merry Christmas thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil, for a great tour. It was my pleasure to tour with you and your family. Roger P.
Bonnie BennettsSanta Monica, CALIFORNIA, United States
Roger gave a GREAT tour. We are so glad we took the tour and familiarized ourselves with the wonderful city of Atlanta. He did the best he could in the time we had to show us the most pertinent places. We had mentioned design and food we're our interests and though he tried to taylor the tour to that angle, his historical bias was apparent. We highly recommend Roger and ToursByLocals.
Harvey ShapsUnited States
Outstanding guide would encourage any one coming to Atlanta to contact Toursbylocals and ask for Roger. He made the city come alive with his tremendous knowledge of Atlanta. Could not have been better served. The five stars are truly deserved
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Shaps, I really enjoyed you and your well traveled wife. It was great hearing about your travel experiences as well. I enjoy sharing Atlanta's history with people that have an appreciation for it. I really enjoyed hearing your travel stories too. I think you should commit those experiences to a book. Travelers everywhere will enjoy reading your seven continents of experience. Thank you for the opportunity, Roger P.
Roger was really nice. He turned a regular sight seeing into a real class of history, culture and, above all, very pleasant. It was my first time to Georgia, and he just made me feel at home in Atlanta. I really recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ms. Lima, It was my pleasure to tour with you. I really enjoy introducing Atlanta to first visitors. Its nice to tour with people that want to see more of the city when they are here for business. I'm sure this will not be your last visit to ATL. Great touring with you too! Roger P.
Roger is a fabulous historian and equally lovely guy. My tour around civil war sites in Atlanta was awesome thanks to Roger who was so professional, relaxed and friendly. It was a perfect day thanks to him. THANK YOU ROGER.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Carol,Thank you for your kind words. I enjoyed the tour as much as you did. I hope you continue enjoying your stay in the U.S. Roger P.
Thomas CarthronUnited States
The tour was booked by myself for a visiting executive and his family. He had nothing but rave reviews for Roger. He was extremely impressed by Roger's wealth of knowledge and his ability to engage the family while leading the tour. The executive admits that due to Roger's ability to conduct such a captivating tour, he and his family now know more about Atlanta than they do their own hometown. Hats off to Roger for a job well done.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, thank you for booking the tour for your clients the, Jacobs. They were very eager to find out about Atlanta as their future home. There was so much to see in only four hours but we were able to cover all their concerns and I gave them a complete understanding of the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Their children even got a chance to enjoy the Georgia Aquarium, and they loved it..... Thank you for the opportunity, Roger P.
Anne CraigUnited States
Roger is a warm, kind, intelligent and extremely knowledgeable guide. My 89 year old Father and I spent the late morning/afternoon with Roger, touring Atlanta, and enjoyed a pleasant lunch too! Dad is an historian and in Roger, he found a kindred spirit. I would recommend to anyone looking to have a great history tour of Atlanta, book with Roger. Thank you so much for the wonderful day we had!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ms. Craig, I enjoyed you and your father so much. I always enjoy touring with travelers that love history as much as I do. I could have listened to your father all day and it still wouldn't have been enough time. Thank you for lunch and your wonderful historical insights. Live long and prosper..... Roger P.
Ellen LutreyUnited States
Fantastic is too mild a word! Roger provided a wonderful tour of Atlanta and obviously shifted what was covered based on what he learned about us during the tour. It was lovely, customized to our needs and interests, and never rushed. He spent considerable time with us and made us feel like family. Wonderful and I would recommend this tour to anyone! Ellen Lutrey Baltimore, MD
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well thank you Ms. Lutrey, I enjoyed you and your daughter very much. I really feed off my travellers enthusiasm for history. I could feel your love for Atlanta's history and it was my pleasure to tour with you both. Thank you again, Roger P.
William RudlandUnited States
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Roger's tour of Atlanta despite a less than perfect day weatherwise. Roger was extremely knowledgeable of the area as well as being an intelligent conversationalist. We plan to revisit several of the sites that were on the tour. My one suggestion is that a highlighted route map be provided to tourists so that they might follow the tour geographically. We found that we were frequently disoriented in relation to the Atlanta area itself.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr. Rudland, I really enjoyed the conversation with you and you wife too. I am taking your advice in place city maps in my vehicle. Thanks for the question about the map. Having the maps available will make me a better guide. Thank you, Roger P.
