Super nice, friendly guy. Seemed to have the minimum knowledge about the sites we visited or the surroundings.
Allen ShaverUnited States
Steve made every effort to make our tour enjoyable and informative. Great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Allen Yes it was a good day one of the first tours of the season I enjoyed everybody's company very much, come and visit us again.

The things about toursbylocals.com that I love so much is the flexibility , the insightful knowledge, my schedule and the guides. Steve was so incredible and fun. He went above and beyond filling our day with amazing facts, incredible sites, and clean bathrooms. He saw what we liked and kept finding us more, above and beyond what we paid for. Would recommend our tour and our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes don't forget there are two sides to this transaction I am truly humbled by your response and your wording is very much appreciated. You are lovely people and I very much enjoyed our short time together. It was my first tour of this season and if all of the future ones are as satisfying as this was I will have a fantastic year. Lets keep in touch best wishes to you all Steve

Kelly LieseUnited States
We booked Steve almost a year in advance and so glad we did! Steve picked us up at LHR and drove us to our guesthouse in Southhampton with a tour of Stonehenge on the way. Perfect! He was right on time and was a wonderful guide on our tour of Stonehenge and we felt lucky to have him. If we had been a bit less tired from our all night flight we would have toured another location as well as that certainly was available with Steve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kelly you were great.Those kind words are very much appreciated at this current time and what I need to help me to plan for another season next year. I hope our paths may cross again one day.Have some great holidaying destinations in the future
Tommy GravettBear, DE, United States
Steve did a fantastic job with our Stonehenge and Salisbury tour. He's very personable and knowledgeable. Steve went with us through Stonehenge rather than just giving us the headset guide tour. His know and insights were great. In Salisbury Cathedral, Steve arranged for us to have one of the Cathedral guides take us through the magnificent Cathedral.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tommy your very positive feed back is most appreciated I also enjoyed all of your company very much. I hope we see you all again one day and I appreciate your thoughts about me for the future for any of your friends and family who might be venturing into this part of the UK.Thank you once again
Gayle WennUnited States
Steve picked us up in his MBZ and drove to the Salisbury Cathedral. Great tour at the Cathedral and we viewed the magna carte! Due, to weather issues, we decided not go to Stonehenge. Instead, we sped off to the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum and it was perfect for motorbike lovers. We also made it to the New Forest and saw the horses running free and the St. Nicholas Church. Loved the church, the history and the local parishioners--beyond friendly! Even though the weather was not perfect...the tour was!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well what very kind words I also enjoyed our time together. The important part of your response is the flexibility I bring to my offerings that I like to think on the day, on the spot we can invariably come up with a cost effective solution. I hope we will meet up again one day keep in touch thanks Steve
Bill BeaverUnited States
Steve did a great job touring our family of 6 around Stonehenge and Salisbury. He was personable, listened to what each member of the family wanted to see and learn, and went out of his way to accommodate what we requested.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi everyone I am so very sorry for the delay in responding to your kind words Bill. Things have gone crazy for my small business Thank you for your comments it was very kind of you. I really enjoyed out short time together I think you are really great people and liked your company and conversations immensely. I hope we see you all again one day.Kind regards Steve
Linda OfferdahlUnited States
Steve was prompt with our pick up from the cruise ship. Even though not technically covered on the tour, he made a point of pausing in front of important monuments in Southampton and gave us the scenic ride back through New Forest. His estimate of the tour time was over-optimistic but he was flexible in allowing extra time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback
Jessica BaptistePrinceville, HI, United States
Steve was a delightful conversationalist and very accommodating of our massive amount of luggage. We took his tour to Stonehenge and Salisbury before boarding our cruise. There was unusual traffic but he navigated back streets so we could still maximize our tour time. It was nice to see Stonehenge, but we should have hurried through and spent more time in Salisbury. That was completely our fault, not Steve's. We look forward to hiring his services on our next trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Very kind words that are appreciated all the best to you for the future.
Mary ScheuerUnited States
Steve gave us a wonderful tour and gave a wonderful commentary on the sights. He definitely scores a 5 out of 5 points. We totally enjoyed ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for those kind words i also enjoyed our short time together it was my pleasure to be able to help you a bit in moving you between your Hotel and the shopping centre. All part of the service. Thank you. I hope we meet again one day
Carole PetersonUnited States
we had a great time with Steve P. Lots of pre tour communication to help us decide what we wanted to see and what might work best. But then when we got there, he made suggestions that were even better. We saw even more than we thought we would and enjoyed every minute of it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great positive feed beck for me thank you I would like to have more multi day tours it gives even more opportunity to show how flexible we can be. You were really great customers to be with and I hope we will meet again one day.
Sue NelsonJersey Village, TX, United States
Steve was very nice, but rather disorganized. We had to wait for him at the ship for almost an hour and it took a phone call before he showed up.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review. I have rechecked my paperwork from 1 year ago and cannot find anything to confirm your points. The timing of the confirmation matches the timings that I record on a spread sheet that controls my business. I am sorry that you do not feel 100% satisfied
Karen KrogerUnited States
We booked the Stonehenge and Salisbury tour with Steve, and requested to go to Old Sarum as well. Steve was quite agreeable, and we were able to do all three in one day. I try to collect a magnet from most places we visit, and I ran out of time in Salisbury Cathedral (Don't miss seeing the original Magna Carta). Steve was so kind as to buy a magnet and send it to me after we returned home from our trip! He masterfully guided us around traffic, and took us on pretty side roads. Very scenic! Many thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen all part of the service to my clients the more unusual the request the happier I am in fulfilling the vexpectations. The more people that know about my flexibility the more business I can look forward to. Many thanks you were a great group of people i enjoyed our short time together very much I hope we meet again one day.
This was a fantastic personalized tour. Steve, has so much knowledge and was able to answer all of our questions and gave us great historical facts. He was very attentive to our requests and offered many options for us so we were able to see and do what we wanted. We highly recommend him and your company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anne Thank you for those kind words and I am pleased we were able to help you a little bit with your history. Let Jerry know that the golf idea is still just an idea but watch this site next year. I really enjoyed our short time together and hope we meet again one day.
Martin SteereUnited States
Steve met us at the hotel. He was on time. His car was parked out front, and we were on our way. It was a nice drive out to Stonehenge. Steve had pre-purchased the tickets (for which we reimbursed him), and we went right in. Afterwards, a short drive to Salisbury, a walk through the cathedral and a quick bit to eat. We returned to Southampton through the New Forest. All in all, a pleasant introduction to Southern England.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marty Thank you for those kind words I certainly enjoyed yours and Martha's company very much I hope you are now back and settled in sunny California. Lets hope we meet again one day.Kind regards,Steve
David WollardUnited States
Steve was great host. Made trip to Stonehenge and Salisbury delightful. Made a couple of unscheduled stops not on the schedule at our request with no issues. He knows their area very well and was very comfortable to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for those kind words I believe flexibility is very important and I am always very willing to respond to my customers requests. I very much enjoyed our time together I hope Ginger and Carla are both well. I hope we meet again one day.
Paul JakubowskiUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You were great people to share our short time with,thank you
Mary McEachronUnited States
Absolutely wonderful tour! Steve is extraordinarily knowledgeable and accommodating -- plus a delightful human being. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would unquestionably seek him out again as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry for this belated response Mary. Your comments are very kind and much appreciated
Vernon PetersUnited States
Steve provided my wife and I a wonderful tour to Stonehenge and Salisbury. It was our first visit to the UK, and he provided excellent, concise, information about the Southampton area and other sights in the area that we might want to visit in the future - especially the historic New Forest area. Steve ensured we made the most of our time in exploring both the Stonehenge site and the Salisbury Cathedral.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vernon a very apologetic reply to your lovely comments about our short time together. I am pleased you both had a good time and fingers crossed we might meet again one dsay. Kind regards Steve

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you
Dan R.United States
Steve easily earns a 5 out of 5. Perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness. Can't think of anything that might increase the level of comfort, enjoyment, and convenience. A bit more of local input might have been welcome, but this in no way detracted from a top notch experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dan for your compliments i do appreciate them. Interesting about more local input I do plan to carry suitable reference books with me and coupled with the computer and Google it could well then in future help to answer the odd question that is asked. thank you for your input
William IsaacsonUnited States
Steve was an excellent guide and we were completely happy with all of his services
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great group we were look forward to seeing everyone again
Arthur WarnerUnited States
We had a great time with Steve. The Pub we stopped at was the highlight of our trip. Steve went the extra mile to accommodate our party of 8. Thanks, Art
Jeanne SnawerdtUnited States
We had a marvelous day with Steve. Took in Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, and the New Forest. Steve drove us thru the countryside of south England; it was beautiful. Highly recommend Steve as a tour guide, as he was knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of all that area. Since the visitors center at Stonehenge had been vandalized the night before, it was closed and we wanted to buy an art work there, Steve is going to get one for us and send it to us. That is exceptional service! Thanks, Steve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeanne thank you, you were great company as well I really enjoyed our time together. I'm sorry I cant boast yet about finding your art work but I am on the case but not found anything as yet. I hope to meet you again one day or any of your friends and family that might be heading in this direction in the future.
Angela MossUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Steve P. We ran into traffic several times, allowing Steve to do his magic, using back roads and sharing his love of the area. The visits to Stonehenge and Salisbury were obvious treats, but Steve also brought us to a wonderful little pub for lunch. It is a well-hidden gem we would have never found on our own or with a large tour group. Excellent day!
Eddie GochenourUnited States
Steve was an excellent guide. He was very courteous and flexible with his time. He did not make me feel rushed and even took his time to show me some extra places. I highly recommend Steve. The next time I'm in the Southampton area I will definitely request him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was an absolute pleasure to spend my day with Eddie. We were able to achieve all that he wanted from his time here in Southampton. I was more than happy to accommodate his small requirement and it made it an additional bonus for me to visit somewhere different and it emphasizes the flexibility that I bring to my customers experiences. Thank you Eddie I look forward to seeing you again.
