Roger was courteous, informative, and knowledgeable. The vehicle was comfortable and accommodated 5 adults easily. Our group consisted of individuals from the US, Korea, Britain, and Finland. Roger handled this without difficulty. Booking with Tours by Locals was convenient. The time gap between our booking and response from Roger was within the same day. I then was able to communicate pick-up and drop-off details with him (specific to our request) via email. Again, these communications were without issue

Enjoyable, easy going, smooth and comfortable ride around the interesting areas of the city. His knowledge filled in little known historical gaps about Atlanta, how it came to be and why it is the way it is today. This is the value of a private tour. A group or bus tour rarely affords this level of detail and insight. Highly recommended - especially if you have millennials or younger with you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ms. Kiser, I wish we would have had more time. It was a new experience for me to tour with an Atlanta longtime resident. Thank you, I enjoyed the tour. Roger P.

Roger was a terrific guide for our family group. He has a thoughtful and knowledgeable approach to showing us his town - and made our introduction to Atlanta something we will remember. We appreciated his accommodating our schedule and our situation. Thanks Roger!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr. Goodman, It was my pleasure to tour with you and your family. I always enjoy sharing Atlanta's history known and unknown. You were great listeners and active participants. Thank you for the opportunity. Roger P.

Best tour ever! Roger is a historian and a story teller. We are amazed at how much understanding of history we learned in two hours. From the Native American civilization before Europeans came, to the civil War, to present day he told us so much in a logical and interesting way. I've read a lot of history and was surprised how much I didn't know. It was exciting to be right where the events happened. Our granddaughter, who lives in Atlanta, plans to take this tour based on our experience.

This tour was worth each cent. Thanks for the mindopening hours which changed my view on Atlanta completely. I enjoyed every second, especially the historic context e. g. the civil rights movement and Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. CU again, Roger!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad I was able to share with you the Atlanta the I love. It was my pleasure. Roger P.

Roger did a great job of customising the tour to suit my interests, while also using his own experience to ensure that we fitted in both good quantity and good quality of touring. Roger is extremely knowledgeable and puts across his insights in an interesting and easy to follow manner. I felt that I had had an enjoyable few hours (he was generous with his time) and learned a lot, as well as visited some memorable locations and given a very good, broad understanding about the city of Atlanta.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Spindler, I really enjoyed touring with you and I’m glad that you had the opportunity to see the Atlanta that I love. If you have any chance of returning to Atlanta, I would love to take you on the Civil War Battlefields Tour. I know you would enjoy it too. Roger P.
