Jim was a fabulous tour guide. I felt totally comfortable and at ease and his knowledge of the city, buildings and history was amazing! As I was alone he made sure I was set somewhere for dinner before I went home and that I knew exactly how to get home if I wanted to use the train. I would highly recommend Jim as a tour guide for your private or group tour. My name is Sonia and I'm from Brisbane, Australia.

Jim was brilliant. Informative, funny, insightful and highly knowledgeable. A great walking tour of Dallas. Great value too.

Jim was an excellent tour host! He arrived ahead of schedule and even had umbrellas for the entire family for the rain that day! He was extremely knowledgeable, answered questions and adapted the tour based on our feedback. Would highly recommend!

Thanks to Jim, I had the chance to get to know Dallas very well. Not only the historic sites but also places where you can eat/drink. The walking tour was definitely the best option (the weather worked out too) since we get to see everything. I want to recommend Jim to everyone who will be visiting Dallas in the near future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew, I enjoyed meeting you and had a great day with you. Jim

Jim's "Dallas Discovery Walking Tour" was excellent! Jim was very entertaining, educational and informative. While our tour started a little late, Jim was very apologetic and graciously showed us all of what Dallas Metro had to offer and even helped us with recommendations on where to buy souvenirs and popular restaurant attractions. We had a wonderful time during our tour and would highly recommend Jim to others visiting the Dallas Metro area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: James, I enjoyed meeting both of you. Thanks, Jim
Great tour and good value. Great way to start our visit to Dallas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Russell, I enjoyed my time with you both, Jim

Excellent tour having never been to Dallas before. Jim certainly knows a wealth of information about this city. It was an extremely hot day but Jim let us have several "air conditioned" stops to refresh us. Would recommend Jim and Tours by Locals to anyone visiting this beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ann, Thank you for the great review. I enjoyed meeting you and your family, Jim

Jim was definitely knowledgeable and very accommodating to the Gary Family. We spent our reunion time in Dallas, and had the privilege of having Jim as our tour guide. We will definitely be referring him to others and if given the opportunity to go to Dallas again, will request him. Thank you Jim. You were great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eunice, Thanks, I enjoyed meeting your family and helping to make their visit to Dallas special. JIm
Very informative, helpful & flexible.

Ours was a custom tour that started at 5 pm. Jim is a great guide because he has so much knowledge about the architecture in the city, having worked for the city of Dallas. We were able to tour Deleay Plaza, the park, and the Art District and even visited a couple of restaurants for hors d'oeuvres and wine! Love it.
He was one of the best guides I have ever worked with He is very knowledgable about the city and willing to help us all the time. I would definitely recommend him. 5 out of 5

We are very happy with our guide, Jim. He proved himself to be extremely knowledgeable in our areas of interest. He is intelligent, calm and always flexible with a wide range of interests and witty approach to any subject. Jim shared the best of his city with us, and we will certainly recommend him as a local guide to all our friends. Sophie Kan and Leonid Vitkup.
The tour was absolutely wonderful and really showed me a side of Dallas I would never have been either on a large organised tour or just with a guide map. Jim was so incredibly knowledgeable and had a fascinating insight into the workings of Dallas. We had a wonderful time and I would most definitely recommend the tour to anyone else!

Despite the heat of the day, the tour itself was wonderful. Jim was very knowledgeable and I am so glad I gave myself this experience. There is so much I never would have picked up on had he not have shown me very important points of the history of the city. There's only so much you can learn in a history book!
