Margareth gave us a wonderful tour that was very enjoyable, informative and fun. She paid close attention to detail and was very knowledgeable and familiar with the sites. Our tour ran smoothly and we were well taken care of. I asked her to add a few places to one of her set tours and she did this very well. Our tour lasted five days and each was filled with just what we wanted to do. My husband and I are happy we found Margareth and Tours by Locals, we had a great tour and also made new friends!
