Jane PerlaUnited States
Our two day tour with Ray far exceeded our expectations. He was amazingly knowledgeable on many, many subjects, and knew the history of every town and building and ruin we encountered. Our days were a perfect mix of riding in his very comfortable vehicle, and walking in towns, castle grounds, ruins and scenic areas. We had convenient down time in the form of a lunch stop each day. We would highly recommend Ray for touring anywhere in Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jane & Vince, Thank you most sincerely for your very kind and thoughtful review of your recent 2 day tour with me. I hope you both took some great memories of your time here in Ireland and you have a safe journey home. Bye for now, Ray.

Ray was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area. He varied his normal tour to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. We were never rushed and we would highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stacey, Thank you for your very kind review of your recent Ring of Kerry tour with me. I'm glad you all enjoyed the tour and please convey my best regards to all. Bye for now. Ray.
Anne HuberUnited States
Ray picked us up in Dingle (7 people with luggage), and delivered us at our next destination in Killarney. We traveled the ring of Kerry and saw a sheep herding demonstration, viewed the Skellig Islands and ventured thru several small towns. Ray was very informative and allowed us to stop any time we wanted to take pictures. Using TBL to get from one destination to the next AND travel The Ring of Kerry was the way to go. No crowded tour busses and no public transportation and hauling our bags around!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anne, Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review of your recent tour of The Ring of Kerry with me. I'm glad you all enjoyed the day and the experience. Bye for now. Ray.
James CrebbinUnited States
Ray was very punctual, knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with on tour. He took us to several points that were off the normal routes to take in scenic views. He has a warm personality and I would highly recommend touring with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim, Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review of your recent tour of The Ring of Kerry with me. I'm glad you all enjoyed it and I hope you had a great time in Ireland. Best regards, Ray.
Thomas H L.Stavanger, Norway
Raymond was a fantastic tour guide this summer. He clearly knows the region and the people / places to visit. Highly recommended. Thanks so much.

Judy LumbertUnited States
Raymond was an excellent tour guide for the Ring of Kerry. There were six of us touring with him for the day.The scenery on this peninsula is fantastic. I was most interested in the sheep herding demonstration. Ray knew exactly where we should stand to get the best view. I highly recommend Ray and this tour company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Judy, Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review. I am glad that you all enjoyed your day's touring with me on The Ring of Kerry and I hope you all arrived home safely. Bye for now. Ray.
Brett HallUnited States
Ray is fantastic. We did both his Ring of Kerry and Dingle trip and enjoyed both so much. If you can I would highly recommend doing both if you can only do one of the tours and have younger kids like us I would do the Ring of Kerry because there is more for them to see and do. Thanks again Ray for 2 great days.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brett and Family, Again, many thanks for your kind review of your recent tours with me. Bye for now. Ray.
Sally YatesUnited States
Ray was wonderful. Very clever - very knowledgeable and very tolerant of my husband and his lengthy stories. He was willing to alter the tour to fit our requirements and knew the history of all that we saw. He engaged our 14 year old grandson with stories from his police days - and even showed my skeptical husband a few things he had not seen before. The high point was definitely seeing Brendan with his sheep and dogs. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sally & Family, Thank you for your very kind review of your recent tour with me. I'm glad that you all enjoy the tour and especially Brendan with his sheep and dogs at Kells. Bye for now. Ray.
Gail HartmannUnited States
Our group of 8 really enjoyed touring Kerry with Ray. It was wonderful to see the famous and the lesser known sights. The sheepdog trials were a real treat Ray knows the area and the people and effectively provides a glimpse into the lives of the present and past residents- we loved every part of our tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gail & family, Just a brief message to Thank You for your kind and thoughtful Review of your recent tours with me of The Ring of Kerry & Dingle. I hope you all enjoyed the remainder of your visit to Ireland and returned home safely.
Francie JosephUnited States

Jeb BurtonWest Sacramento, CA, United States
Outstanding tour, would not have seen nearly as much or in as much detail by ourselves or on a coach. Was great with the kids.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeb, Thank you for your kind comments and review of your tour with me last August. Wishing you and all your family a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2017.

Kevin CarmodyUnited States
Ray was awesome! He took us on exactly the tour we were hoping for. If your looking for a local tour around Kilarney Raymond knows the area, history and great to spend the day with. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments and I am pleased that you and your family enjoyed the day. That you all got to experience some of the hidden and not so often explored gems of the south west of County Kerry especially the village of Cill Rialaigh, a unique and special place. Long life and happiness. Slán go Fóil.
Patricia BrakefieldUnited States
Raymond was BY FAR the best tour guide we had in Ireland! Our group of 5 took 2 other "bus tours" and they couldn't measure up to the superb treatment we had from Raymond. He was attentive to each person's needs, and he was a font of information and history as we traveled. His van was roomy and comfortable. Tours by Locals is the only way to go! If you're visiting Killarney, tour with Raymond!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments which are much appreciated, I am glad you all enjoyed The Ring of Kerry Tour.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind comments, Patricia. That's why we're here - to help you get off the tour buses!
Patricia AbrahamUnited States
Ray was a wonderful tour guide and he took us to some outstanding out of the way places, that on our own, we would never have found. We saw wonderful sights and quaint villages. Ray even went out of his way to help star some special sights for us to see when we were in Dublin on our own. He was so pleasant and fun to be with and we felt very lucky to have had him as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments, glad you enjoyed your tour with me, it was a pleasure touring with you during your visit to Ireland, I really enjoyed it.
