Just a great tour. I have used Toursbylocals maybe 20 times and never had a bad experience but Keith's tour was certainly the best. He's down to earth. Right away I felt like I was going around with a friend. A friend with an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject. Which can be the entirety of England and Wales and I know he guides at least as far as Edinburgh. Amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I know how good many of tours by locals guides are so to be described as the best is special.

Keith was a great guide. We had bad weather but he always had a plan for something else for us to do and was flexible in accommodating our particular interests. He was very knowledgeable about everything on the tour and took fabulous photographs. He was very considerate and dropped us off close to the venue when the weather was bad, found local treats for us to eat, and always had a smile. He was also helpful in recommending places to stay as we planned the trip. I would highly recommend Keith.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou for your kind words.

Keith allowed us to customize our trip, and supplied excellent advice as to where to stop and what to add to our trip. We never would have discovered Knaresborough Castle or Brimham Rocks without him. He explained so much history and insight. He is an excellent tour guide, and could not recommend him more! Take his advise, you won't be disappointed. He was also a trooper, our weather was poor, but made the most of a English Winter day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words, I hope the weather forecast holds good for the coming days and you get the benefit of some winter sunshine for the next part of your UK trip.

beautiful trip. lovely small town visit, church, lighthouse, castles, scenic vistas. great for picture taking with a guide who is also a photographer. personally i learned a lot. we had a rainy day for part of it but all remained in good spirits. he was as well a teacher and we both leaned a lot about education system, health care, etc. don't bother with cruise excursions. this is far and away a better option. we have used tours by locals in Lima, Peru as well.

This tour was conducted on a rainy day. Nevertheless, my husband and I with our enthusiastic guide, Keith, had an interesting and fun time driving through the North York Moors and the quaint little towns en-route to Whitby. Keith was unceasingly providing us with captivating commentaries on the history, beauty and culture of the area. At the Abbey in Whitby, standing in the rain, he was able to bring history back to life for us. Thank you Keith for a great tour. We highly recommend Keith as a guide.

This was an awe-inspiring tour for my husband and I with Keith as our guide. Absent our enthusiastic guide, we would not have seen as much as we did - from the glorious and significantly historical sites to the spectacular scenery of Northumberland, the Scottish Border, etc. and with no crowds too! Keith was a passionate historian, very knowledgeable and informative and very charming. Thank you Keith for the fantastic tour. It was one of the best we've ever had. We highly recommend Keith as a guide.

Great tour guide. Knows the area really well. It was raining on and off, but he was able to juggle the schedule so that we were inside most of the time when it rained. We did not just go to a Pub for lunch (which was excellent), but he told us how pub food varies in price and quality as you get farther from London. We learned a lot of history and saw the amazing remains of the Roman occupation. We highly recommend Keith.

We prearranged with Keith a different itinerary for the JVCJH tour. The alternate tour included Fountains Abbey, Harrogate and Knaresborough. Keith carefully listened to us the first day - more than I expected. I expressed an interest in stone circles and he incorporated the under-recognized Devil's Arrow and Thornborough Henges sites in the second day. I was very impressed. Thanks again Keith. Your part of our 33-day tour of Great Britain was exceptional

I had a fantastic, action packed day taking in some of the highlights of the Peak District on a day trip from Sheffield. Keith turned up on time and was highly knowledgeable of things to do and areas to visit - and when best to do so - making the most of our limited time. He is also an accomplished photographer so my pics were great! Managing to offer custom trips not offered by the bigger tour companies Keith offers an excellent option which I will not hesitate to book again.

Enjoyed our day, but my husband and felt that this tour could have been more interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I guess the delights of Northumberland are quite difficult to pack into a short cruise day excursion. I felt that seeing all those castles was something North American guests in particular were likely to find engaging, but I am sorry if this didn't meet your full expectations. I do try to tailor the exact itinerary to meet specific interests of my guests as I believe most or all ToursByLocals staff will do.

Keith began to feel like a big brother showing us the parts of his country he's passionate about. We saw so much we would never have seen on our own! Our only suggestion is to build in just a little more relaxation-time for lunch or in a pub to decompress and review what we'd seen and done. Thanks, Keith!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou, I agree that when touring in this way the experience can be very full on, and knowing how many hours a day is important in planning for those taking the tour

Keith was a very enthusiastic guide and knew a great deal about the area. He really tailored the tour to my interests. He is an expert photographer and his insights about taking better pictures were an added bonus. He had been a student at University at Durham and really helped make that part of the trip special. He was able to secure a room that night at the castle for me, and also asked a graduate student in Archaeology to go with us to Hadrian's wall, which was another bonus, as she added her own view

It was just great fun to learn things we hadn't encountered before. Keith is a very fine teacher and he was certainly patient with all our inquiries. This tour was worth twice the price for Keith's guidance and expertise, but the cost allowed us to see an area of England that we would not have been able to tour otherwise.

An added attraction was his ability to focus on beautiful landscapes. It would have been nice if we could have booked the days as one tour, but evidently ToursByLocals cannot do that. Too bad!
