Bob was very informative about the area and its history. We spent an hour before we left the hotel looking at maps and pictures to learn about the area. My husband was having trouble walking so Bob drove us around to see more of the city. He also took us to a museum on the history of the area. We were self guided in any of the buildings we went into and Bob waited for us. It was very different than other tour guides we have had. Bob's specialty is photography.

Bill knew all the hideaways and I especially liked Tinker Town, which was a very unique experience. He was very patient while I spent time in the churches, which I am very interested in touring. Bill had many great things to talk about the Santa Fe area. Definitely would recommend Bill as a tour guide. Thanks for a nice day.

Our guide, Bob A., told us many stories about the history of Taos and the surrounding areas. Taos Pueblo was closed, but he offered us alternative places that were fabulous. He knew a great place for lunch. We had a fabulous day!

Tom is passionate about the area and his many stories and anecdotes make the tour come alive and resonate. He took us around Santa fe and the environs right into the desert and shows us the many place Georgia O'Keef painted. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend Bob as we felt we were shown areas that were off the beaten track

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for comments but it should read Bob not Tom

Tour: Ancient Tribes ! Ancient Volcano ! Northern New Mexico Splendor !, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Date: Oct 17/16

Our day began with a visit to the Valles Caldera. Bob recommended that we arrive early, as only 25 cars are allowed in. His advice was spot on. We enjoyed the visual beauty of the Calderas and Bob provided some good tips that helped with my photography. We also visited the Jiminez Springs which were very beautiful. Following lunch we came back to Los Alamos and visited the Bradbury Museum which was terrific. Bob' local knowledge was very helpful and appreciated.

Bob is extremely knowledgeable regarding Native American culture and history. He is well respected by the native people at Acoma. Bob provided us with a great deal of printed material which he had researched. This was greatly appreciated. His knowledge of the traditions and culture of New Mexico is extensive.

We have used Tours By Locals before and loved it. Not so this time. Because of our 2 day stay I asked for a tour to show us what to see in the remaining 1 1/2 days. Bob barely met us and walked us to his dirty car to begin the tour. He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and buildings in the city but he was limited to that and to photography. He was not personable and we had to ask many questions to break the silence. Finally, we cut the tour short. I tipped because his gas tank was empty.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry my guests were disappointed. Prior conversations resulted in a reduction in the fee and the generation of a custom tour with reduced time. I met them precisely on time. My car has an open cargo space and my hummingbird shoot equipment can be seen. Cameras were on the back seat. They seemed to appreciate my restaurant advice, account on statehood vote, and King of Spain visit. We made many photo stops along Acequia Madre photographing doors and homes. Tour was cut short for medical reasons.

Bob is a great guide to the Santa Fe and Albuquerque area, who has a wealth of experience and knowledge to impart. We really enjoyed his company and chat, laced with many colourful anecdotes and informative comments at each point of interest on both tour days we booked with him. We felt so lucky to have him with us, and were really grateful to him for enriching our stay in New Mexico.

As the first stop on my holiday this tour was a delight and fully realised my hopes for a stunning experience of the NM desert. Bob has a wide range of knowledge which expands the immediate sights. He himself was interested enough in Georgia O'keeffe to come on the tour of her Abiuque house which is a treasure and the follow on th Ghost Ranch allowed me to learn photographic skills in the Mess landscape. A short sharp rain shower caused rapid cour changes in the rocks reminiscent of GO's paintings.

Bob provided us with many interesting facts and stories about the pueblos and the Albuquerque area. He was very attentive to our physical well-being, especially when we were walking in slippery mud on the mesa. We enjoyed the hours that we spent with Bob. We highly recommend this tour with Bob as the guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Larry. I hope our trails will cross again some day.

Bob's tour was awesome! We learned so much about Santa Fe and New Mexico. We were able to see some of Santa Fe that you wouldn't normally see on a regular tour and able to capture all with the camera. I would definitely recommend this tour with Bob!!
