Tour: #131388, Conwy Castle & medieval Harbour, Snowdonia National Park, Wales, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Sep 30/18

Pauline gave us a very good tour of the Conwy and North Wales including the Snowdonia area. She was very knowledgeable about the sites and the area. Inspired us to make other plans to visit more of the region. Places I hadn't thought of. I find Tours by Locals a very good way to get to really know a region or site. You can just learn so much about the area but by being with someone local you get so much more out of the experience. Thank you Pauline..

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both so much for coming to North Wales. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you too and I am so glad you found me helpful. Hoping you survived the recent hurricane without too much damage. Warm wishes to you both. Pauline

Tour: Bodnant Gardens & Conwy, Snowdonia National Park, Wales, United Kingdom
Date: Aug 28/18

Pauline was wonderful. Everything you would want and more she realised. She and her driver Ian took very good care of us and we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a wonderful day with them around Botnant Gardens and Snowdonia National Park. She was able to accommodate our party of two adults (with one wheelchair). Pauline hat uns wundervoll betreut. Wir konnten uns ganz auf sie verlassen. Für uns hat sie ein tolles Programm zusammengestellt, welches für uns mit Rollstuhl bestens gepasst hat. Gerne wieder.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you both very much it was my pleasure - take very good care of yourselves. Warm wishes Pauline

Date: Aug 6/18

Pauline was a wonderful guide. She was warm and personable, extremely professional, and was an amazing repository of information! She spent a very long day with us, and never lost her focus on our enjoyment of the tour. Pauline made sure we kept to the schedule to ensure we saw all of our sights, while keeping an eye on the time line to return to our ship. We would highly recommend her to friends, family, and strangers alike!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much - you were such a pleasure to spend the day with, I just wanted to give all I could. Warm wishes for a lovely future. Pauline

Tour: Llandudno to Manchester Airport Hotel, Conwy, Wales, United Kingdom
Date: Jul 5/18

Pauline is a wonderfully nice person and knowledgeable, but as a guide, much is lacking. Because of her personal situation, she has to use a driver, which pushes up the cost. Secondly, she does not accompany you into any sites, simply sending you in to buy your tickets and tour on your own. In Llandudno, where we spent one night, she dropped us off, gave us vague suggestions of what to do, but provided no directions and neglected to tell us most sights would be closing soon. 3 Stars might be generous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Let's be fair Mr Dailey you and your wife thrive on being considered independent travellers and the only sites you were not accompanied were the castles. In my experience people like to take in the experience at their own pace - in future I will discuss with each client. I will agree you were left without guidance in Llandudno and for that I apologise. However I believed from your comments the next day, your evening had been very enjoyable.

Tour: Snowdonia:Castle&Gardens, Holyhead, Wales, United Kingdom
Date: Jun 29/18

Pauline was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide and most of all flexible. The castle we were scheduled to visit was undergoing some refurbishment, so she switched us to a different one which turned out to be one of the best we have visited in a long time. Lunch was delicious and didn't take much time, and our Gardens visit was memorable. We made several unscheduled stops at delightful small towns which enhanced our view of this beautiful area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sondra I enjoyed the day just as much as you and your group.

Our students (a foreign group, English as a foreign language) we pulled into Alice's hole, we enjoyed the company immensely and interactive nature of the tour was second to none.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert we thoroughly enjoyed giving the tour - it was a really upbeat 3 hours for all of us.

Tour: #69993, City of Chester, Liverpool, England, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Aug 17/17

Pauline arranged for a tour team. We traveled around Liverpool, taking in the sights and then into Chester where we walked the ancient streets, sampling food, shopping, marveling at its history and ending up in a tour of a glorious church. Pauline was a font of information. We lunched in a wonderful tavern outside Chester on our way to the Royal Liverpool Golf Course where we enjoyed its history. We traveled the countryside with Pauline's continuous dialog. A truly unforgettable day. An A+ rating!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda - it was lovely to meet you and I am so pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Take care

Our day with Pauline in the gorgeous Snowdonia region was quite delightful, indeed. She took us to several charming spots that most tours would have missed. We would without reservation heartily recommend touring with Pauline.

Tour: #291056, Snowdonia and the Coast, Snowdonia National Park, Wales, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Jul 31/17

Pauline was our guide to Snowdonia and surrounding area. She was great, but Snowdonia was not as spectacular as I read it would be. Guide did everything right that we could think of, but the area was not really worth the expense, but Pauline was. Having a guide meet at a ship's docking area is not easy, but we found her almost immediately, and same for her. If not for Pauline I would have been even more upset about the area, but she did everything possible to make the tour worth it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for acknowledging my work, it is very much appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet you both. I do hope you enjoyed the remainder of the cruise.

Date: Jul 8/17

A very delightful person, wanting to find out our interests. She was very flexible and adapted the order of what she had planned to accommodate our desires. She was a skilled driver and allowed us the freedom to set a pace we could handle. She also had a vast knowledge of the area's history. Our day with Pauline was one of the major highlights of our entire four-week trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a wonderful review - I am so glad you enjoyed your day - its always important to me.

I toured with Pauline for four days in North Wales, and each day was splendidly different. Wales is a beautiful and tidy place, and Pauline seems to know it all, down to the treasured little village church with 16th century stained glass and its own holy well that has been a pilgrimage site for ages.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you enjoyed visiting North Wales. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show my favourite places. I hope you will return in the not too distant future.

Pauline went out her way to take not only to the sites I had asked to see but she also showed a variety of other site - she is a very personable and knowledgeable lady - a real treat in my visit to Wales - I would recommend her to anyone interested in touring Wales and would reconsider going back to Wales for another view of the country from her perspective

Excellent tour by a wonderful, enthusiastic and accommodating tour guide, Pauline. I hope to be able to meet up with her again to maximize my limited time in Wales. We had fabulous weather and thankfully accepted her recommendations on a locations for a B & B. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an individual tour.
