Tour: Folklore And Lifestyle OF "The Glens of Antrim"untitled, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
Date: Jul 29/18

Barbara Ferguson is a wonderful guide. She's knowledgeable, personable and fun to be around. She was also flexible, stopping at a charming restaurant we noticed that was not on our itinerary. She's especially good with young people, making sure our grandchildren were included the conversations. I highly recommend her to anyone visiting the area. Our driver Fergus was also terrific. He was funny adding comments and insights, and played Irish music, which we really enjoy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Barbara...……..you have a beautiful family.

Barbara is AMAZING! She is fun, lively, knowledgeable, humorous, thoughtful and considerate. Loved the tour of Belfast, the Peace Wall, Titanic Museum, and downtown Belfast. Had a fun lunch of American burgers with Barbara and she and my mom 79 year old mom got along wonderfully. Driver, Stephen, was awesome, too, and shared so much about his life in Belfast. GREAT tour! WONDERFUL guide!

Tour: Visiting Relatives in the Land of Game of Thrones, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
Date: Jun 4/18

We had the time of our lives with Barbara. What a gift to sit back and relax and let her take us where we wanted to go. She was an excellent driver and very knowledgeable about Northern Ireland and the area we were exploring. She was so friendly and cheerful with a great sense of humour. She took us to great places to eat and accommodated our every need. We would love to go back and see and do more with her as our guide. We wouldn't hesitate to use Tours by Locals in another country too!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Delighted to hear from you Jacqueline. Hope the rest of your holiday was good. Many thanks for your kind comments and yes lets make it a family genealogy tour next time. Keep well.

Tour: Belfast to Dublin Passing through Ireland's Ancient East, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
Date: Jun 3/18

Barb was our guide (we are from Texas USA) for a tour from Belfast, NI south to Dublin with amazing stops along the way. We loved the medieval villages, castles, abbeys. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area so instead of being crowded with tour buses or groups you are at these amazing historical sites - by yourself! She has been a guide for many years and her "insider" information makes for the most amazing, beautiful, one of a kind tours you will ever find. Absolutely loved it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Katherine. Thoroughly enjoyed sharing my homeland with you all. Safe travels to you and your lovely family.

Date: Oct 16/17

Our tour exceeded all our expectations! Barbara spent time researching my family roots prior to the tour day and as a result we were able to meet some delightful locals who provided meaningful information. Her running commentary as she drove was fascinating and very informative. She is obviously very knowledgeable about the history of the country and shared wonderful anecdotes of both the present and the past. Would highly recommend her as a guide.
