We have used Tours By Locals a ton and always had amazing guides but Joyce was by far our favorite! She not only was extremely knowledgeable but was also super easy and fun to be around. She knew all the best places to eat and helped us with additional details of our trip. Our tour with Joyce was one of the highlights of our trip.
Richard YouensUnited Kingdom
We were guided by Roland who had come all the way to Bruges from Brussels, having already taken one tour and was with us ahead of schedule. He really knew his onions and we saw all the sights as well as had time for a pit stop and a beer. We now have a good idea of Bruges history and plenty of bragging rights when we get home. Thanks, Roland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this nice feedback it really was a pleasure welcoming you and showing you round Thank you for your business Roland & Joyce
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your visit and for your company I hope you eventually found your hotel in Amsterdam? Roland & Joyce

Joyce was very knowledgeable about the history of Bruges. She gave us a good overview of the city. She was friendly, personable, and helpful with suggestions for the rest of our stay.

Matthew M.United States
Joyce was an incredible guide. Not only was she very accommodating to help our sick child but she also provided a customized tour to see some of the surrounding areas of Bruges as we traveled into the city. I can not recommend her highly enough for her knowledge and tour professionalism.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear all I truly hope the sore throat is a long forgotten bad memory by now! It was a real pleasure welcoming you and showing you around All the best Joyce
Terri GonzalezUnited States
My husband and I were so lucky to have found Joyce for our private tour of Bruges, Belgium. Her knowledge of the history, architecture, customs, and culture of the area was superb and she has a great sense of humor as well. We had so much fun on our half day walk with her around this lovely city. She was very accommodating about photo stops and took some great shots of us with my camera. I highly recommend her and would use her again next time we travel to Europe.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Terri thank you for this nice feedback It was my utmost pleasure meeting you and taking you around. I am proud and honored you enjoyed my company. All the best to you. Take care. Joyce
Jennifer Daniela JonesUnited Kingdom
We would happily give her 5 out of 5! Joyce was very friendly, accommodating (met us at our own hotel in Brussels to take us there) and was a clear knowledgeable guide of the area but also how to engage with our group. Whilst a quick tour, she did very well to cover for the rain and got us to our next stop on time. We laughed and she taught us some great things, so a great overall memory for our team. Thank-you so much for her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you sooo much Daniela; It was indeed a fun group. Best regards to all! All the best with the "baby on board" Joyce
Christi HoginUnited States
We took a 6-hour guided walk in Bruges with Christian Scharlé (arranged by Joyce). Christian is a Belgian native who enjoyed a long civil service career. He was knowledgeable about the history and culture of the town, engaging, and very accommodating. Among all the expected parts of a tour, he kept running in to people whom he knew on the streets (a retired ambassador, a well-know brewer, a painter who is married to the fish-seller we'd met earlier...) we found this especially charming
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Christian is Joyce's colleague and the substitution of Christian was agreed to by Christi.
Carol ZwickUnited States
Oh what a wonderful job Joyce did arranging our day. We booked this tour from the ship 2 days before arriving in Zeebrugge. The ship excursions were outrageously high dollars so we decided to try ToursByLocals and as usual they came through in a jam. Our actual guide was George and he went out of his way to rent a van for 6 people and took us to Bruges tour the city. We had a person with us who used a cane and he kept moving the car so that she didn't have to walk too far. A great day.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Glad to hear that the tour went well. It is ToursByLocals policy that in the unusual case where the guide actually giving the tour cannot be the person shown on our website, the customer is told before booking and agrees to the change.
