Dorothy SimUnited Kingdom
My husband, son and I cannot rate this tour highly enough. Ronald was an absolutely excellent driver and guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and, on discovering our enthusiasm for the east coast music scene, shared many anecdotes which we very much enjoyed. He happily tweaked the tour to accommodate an independently pre-booked lunch reservation and, all in all, did everything he could to ensure that we had an absolutely first rate experience. Thank you so much! Colin, Dorothy & Jamie Sim, UK.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Sim Family: Thank you for your review! It was my pleasure sharing the Hamptons and North Fork wineries with you. I am delighted you enjoyed the day. Glad you returned home safely! All the best, Ronald

We found the tour very interesting and enjoyed the local guide Lois as well. We would highly recommend Ronald for any future tour and thank him so very much for such an authentic day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Sam: It was great spending the day with you and your family. I am so glad you share in my love and respect for the Amish people (and their food!). Hope your husband found his hat. See you again next time! Ronald

Joyce TakemoriUnited States
Ron is super! He is knowledgeable; answered so many of my (sometimes dumb) questions and we had some fun conversations. He is intelligent, articulate, versatile, professional, courteous and congenial. He is more than 5-stars. "I Love NY" and Ron proved why.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Joyce. Thank you for your kind review and thank you for teaching me Hawaiian sign language. I had a great evening with you folks. I am glad to know you arrived home safely. Please give my regards to your husband. Aloha, Ronald. \_/ (my hand and fingers!)
Hi Ron, we would like to thank again for the wonderful tour to long island Although it was certainly unusual for you to have guests, only over a very basic English had. Even if we have understood everything immediately, so the trip was a highlight of our trips still to NYC. As I said beforehand, we have rely less on our ears as on our eyes. We have seen a lot and have understood very well despite the language barrier. We can only recommend you. Greetings from Germany from Hartmut and Uschi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Uschi and Hartmut. Thank you for your recommendation. I am so glad our visit to the Hamptons was a highlight among your trips to New York. Truly, the great beauty of the area speaks for itself - common language not necessary. Until next time, Ronald.

Barbara AlldridgeUnited Kingdom
I cannot recommend Ronald and his tour from New York into Amish country too highly. He is such a professional, considerate guide, full of very interesting information and has a great empathy with the Amish people. His excellent driving skills and comfortable vehicle added to our enjoyment. We met so many different families, learnt about their way of life and even sampled shoe fly pie. We felt we were on the set of Harrison Ford 'Witness'.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Barbara: Thank you so much for your kind review! I am so glad this was one of your most memorable tours ever. Truly, the Amish are lovely people and their countryside beautiful. See you on the next cruise! Ronald
I highly recommend this tour and Ronald was a fantastic guide. He went over and above the time due to traffic and made sure we didn't miss anything. Ronald is very knowledgable and a pleasure to chat to and also very capable at navigating the traffic. A great way to see a different side of NYC for the whole family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you enjoyed the tour, Ros, and appreciate your recommendation! If we could only do something about that traffic! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. All the best, Ronald.
We had a very enjoyable day with Ronald. He catered the tour to our personal preferences and was very informative and a pleasure to spend the day with. I would not hesitate in recommending Ronald as a guide and would definitely use him again if we go back to NY
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Ros: Thanks so much for the review! I am so glad you enjoyed the Hamptons. I hope you do get to come back to New York and we get to spend time together again. All the best until next time, Ronald
Nicole SplawnUnited States
We enjoyed our time with Ronald touring the boroughs. It was interesting to see the outskirts of the city and other points of interests we would never have seen without Ronald. I loved the Panorama at the Queens Museum, browsing the neighborhood markets, and just driving down the streets and seeing the brownstones. Ronald was very accommodating and pleasant, as well as a good driver. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Nicole: Thank you for your review and recommendation! I always enjoy showing guests "the real New York." I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Thanks, again! Ronald
Mary Ann DozierUnited States
Ronald was very familiar with New York City and with other areas, such as Washington, DC and the Hamptons. He was knowledgeable about the history of New York and showed us so many landmarks, both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Ronald was pleasant and easy to converse with, very thoughtful about our comfort, and drove carefully so we could enjoy all the sights. This was an exceptional tour because of Ronald!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mary Ann. It was my pleasure to host your group for the three tours. My best to all! Ronald
Excellent tour, Ronald is very knowledgeable and professional. We as a family thoroughly enjoyed our time in his company.

Fantastic tour of the outer boroughs on the final day of our holiday to NYC. Ronald is a great tour guide with a tremendous knowledge of the city (historic and current)...

Shelley KirstenSouth Africa
Ronald Piedmonte took us on the most amazing tour of New York and as first time visitors it made all the difference. His knowledge of the city (including all the history as well), made this tour the highlight of our trip! He is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very flexible and helpful. He took us for a wonderful lunch at Katz's Deli (from 'Where Harry met Sally' fame), and spent an extra hour of his own time finishing off the tour. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Shelley: Thank you for you lovely review! It was my pleasure to spend the day with you, Bert and Caitlin. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour, the city and Katz's Deli! Enjoy the rest of your Southern Hemisphere summer. Thanks, again! Ronald
Jon LehmannUnited States
Ronald was a superlative guide, very nice guy with an encyclopedic knowledge of New York and the history of the many attractions we saw. Customized the trip on-the-fly to accommodate a couple of specific places we wanted to see. Totally worth the cost and can only recommend him highly. Next time we visit New York we will definitely look him up to do other tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Jon: Thanks for the review! I was my pleasure showing you and your son around today. I hope have a great time at MSG tonight! I look forward to seeing you again next time. All the best until then! Ronald
Cris HampeUnited States
Our guide was wonderful. He went above and beyond. He even pushed my mom through Central Park in her wheel chair. He has so much information about the city and the history of the city which made our tour very interesting. We asked him to recommend a pizza place by our hotel. The pizza place he recommended was fabulous. I highly recommend him. definitely a 5 Star tour and guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Cris: Thanks for taking time to rate the tours. I suspect you are still recovering from your long ride home. All the best and Happy Holidays to the rest of the group! Ronald
Michael SnellUnited States
My wife and I had such a great day traveling with Ronald. He seemed to intuitively know what we would like to see and do just through our conversation. Ronald was most knowledgeable on not just the history, but the stories behind the history also. Ronald's van was also most clean and comfortable and he drove both safely and confidently. He would spend as much or as little time as we wanted in every area we traveled. My wife and I have been on numerous city tours before, but Ronald sets the standard!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, Mike! Thanks for the great review. I also enjoy my time together with you and your wife and hope we get to do it again! All the best until then. Ronald
Alan BennettUnited Kingdom
Ronald is a brilliant, knowledgable tour guide. He listened to what we were particularly interested in and adapted things to suit. If we had not spent a day with him, our visit to New York would have not been as rich. He was one of the highlights of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Alan! Thanks for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. I am also glad you got at table and enjoyed La Nonna! After your tour, I had an evening tour that wanted to stop in Little Italy for cannolis. After dropping them and parking, I walked around the corner and went to La Nonna to see if you were there, but apparently I missed you. Thanks, again! Ronald
Jane MannUnited States
This is a great tour. Bring your appetite. We actually took three tours with Ronald the week we were in NYC. He is very knowledgeable and personable. We had a wonderful time with him. If we go back next year, we will definitely be doing another of his tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Jane: So glad you enjoyed the tour and foods of Brooklyn! I look forward to seeing you again next year! Please give my regards to all, Ronald
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Aivars: It was great showing you and your family New York by night and also great to learn more about Latvia. Thank you for taking time to rate your night tour. All the best! Ronald

Linda KeckUnited States
If you are looking for the most wonderful tour guide, stop right here. Ron completely customized our tour of New York including taking us to the best New York pizza joint in town. He was informative and very interesting and made sure we didn't miss one thing. He is a wonderful, safe driver also. We're looking forward to returning to New York and when we do, we will book Ron for sure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Linda: I am so pleased that you enjoyed our time together and look forward to your return! Ronald
It was so good to get out of frantic NYC for some coastal views, villages & farms. Our group of 3 couples from Australia had done most of the obvious attractions in NYC but wanted to see the Hamptons. We wanted the convenience of being picked up from our accommodation & shown around the Hamptons area, & Ronald did a fine job with all of that. His people mover holds 6 adults. We covered most things we wanted to see, but had to watch the time. Even then it's a 12 hour excursion, but very enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Roger: I am so glad you and the group had a 5-star Hampton's experience. I, too, love the coastal views, villages and farms . If I win the lottery before your next visit, I will invite you out to my place in the Hamptons! Please give my regards to the group, Ronald
What an amazing day at the Hamptons Our tour guide Ron was very knowledgeable and really made our tour number 1. Excellent attention to detail Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Franca: Thanks for your review! Sorry for the delay responding. I am so glad you share in my love of the Hamptons - heaven on earth! All the best and thanks again! Ronald
Jennifer B.New Zealand
We had a great day visiting Amish Country, in mid September. Our driver and guide were wonderful. Nothing was a problem. When we arrived we were asked what we would like to see, and I think we had time to see nearly everything on our list. Seeing the corn being harvested was definitely a highlight - and a great bonus. We learnt a lot, and would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing a glimpse of this lifestyle and this beautiful countryside.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Jennifer: I agree. Amish Country is "beautiful countryside." Thanks for spending the day with me and allowing me to share the Amish and their community with you. Ronald
We had a great day trip to the Hamptons with Ron and could never have seen as much as we did without him if we had done it on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Libby: Are the Hamptons great! It was my pleasure to share this New York gem with you! See you again next time, Ronald

James GondlesUnited States
Excellent all around
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review, James. It was great spending time together with you and your wife in Brooklyn. To quote Brooklyn native (both in real life and on the show) Ralph Kramden, "how sweet it is!" Thanks, again! Ronald

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Judiann: Thanks for your review! I am glad you and your husband enjoyed the tour and would definitely use me again. I look forward to it! Perhaps, you could provide me more detail related to the tour duration. My cellphone bill shows your call when you came out of the terminal at 9:17am and my electronic toll tag shows me re-entering Manhattan at 5:26pm. On the way back, I did stop to wash the vehicle and grab something to eat. What time did I drop you off? Thanks, again! Ronald

Excellent day trip to DC in which Ronald provided commentary on each site visited, and made our tour smooth and easy.

Elizabeth KentUnited States
This tour of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx was the highlight of our trip to New York. What was impressive was not just the information Ron imparted about the boroughs and their rich immigrant heritage but his ability to answer questions and adjust on the fly. When he found out we were jazz fans he took us by Louis Armstrong's house and gave us the history. Showing us where we had been using the NYC Panorama at Queens Museum was brilliant and fixed the city in our minds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Elizabeth it was great showing you the outer boroughs of New York! Thank you for taking time to write your very kind review! I hope we get to do another tour in the future! Regards to the two Richards. From the one Ronald.

Ronald PinfieldUnited Kingdom
Ronald is an excellent guide, the day spent touring NYC with him was exceptional. Ronald was able to precisely cater for our sight seeing needs and introduced us to some hidden gems we had no idea existed. It was obvious from the start of the trip that Ronald has an in depth knowledge of the history of New York and he was able to pack as much of the sights, tastes and sounds of New York into our tour. We would highly recommend Ronald as your Tour Guide, when we return to NYC he will be first on our list.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Ronald (I will always remember your name). Thanks for taking time to pen your review. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour! It is always a great joy to show guests around who truly appreciate all of the diversity and variety New York has to offer. Thanks for making me first on the list for your next visit! See you then. The other Ronald.
We had a great time with Ron, he is extremely knowledgable and answered all our questions, we learned a lot about the history of the city. He was there on time and the tour went through without us even noticing. Van was clean, big and very confortable and the places we visited in the tour were great. An awesome experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Rocio. It was great showing you and your husband around. I am glad you found the tour "awesome." Thanks so much for the delicious biscuits from Argentina. Next time, I think we next time we can work out a deal - "I tour for biscuits." All the best to you and your husband! Ronald
Michael WidenUnited States
Five adults took a tour of New York City with Ronald. He gave us a superb overview of the city and its neighborhoods. He was very informative providing us with fun facts that we would have never known otherwise. He was most accommodating, suggesting various sites we might enjoy and allowing us a chance to help plan the itinerary. He knew the history of the various venues and suburbs and made the entire day a delightful experience. We would definitely use this service again.

Margaret MillerUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Margaret: Thank you for your 5-star review! I am glad you enjoyed the tour! Happy Holidays and the best of 2018 to you and yours, Ronald
I cannot say enough about how good the tour was with Ronald, his car was of an executive level and very comfortable and his knowledge of New York was second to none. He went out of his way to be on time and the emails we exchanged were direct and understood by the both of us which I'm sad to say is not what I have experienced by other companies, if I could give Ronald more than 5 stars I would, thanks mate from your friend in Australia and "Strawberry Fields Forever"...Eric Shields (Australia)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eric - it is good to know you made it all that way home safely! Thank you for your kind review. It was my pleasure showing you and your wife the city. I am so pleased you were happy with the tour. Enjoy your summer Down Under! All the best to you and yours, Ronald.
Adele SweetmanUnited States
A Five Star rating for Ronald is well deserved. Our guide is quite knowledgeable about all five Burroughs, as well as interesting Back Story and the "Inside" Scope re: the places we visited. Visiting "Other" New York and New York city in a comfortable SUV with Ronald at the wheel is most definitely the way to go. An unforgettable adventure. Ronald...your the best!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Adele and Lisa - thank you so much for your kind review. You were an absolute delight for me to host. I am so glad you found our adventure "unforgettable." Happy New Year to you both and all of the 2017's best to you! Ronald
Michael ThamsUnited States
the tour was awesome in every way
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Michael. Thank you for your five star review. I am happy to know you enjoyed our tour of Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Harlem. There is certainly more, much more to New York than just what Manhattan has to offer. All the best, Ronald.
Cory CollinsUnited States
Ronald is the best tour guide we have ever had. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He exceeded all of our expextations. Awesome all around!

Eileen DrakeUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Eileen. It was a fun day showing you and your sister around. I hope you will come back when you can spend more time. All the best on till then, Ronald.
Bruce HrabaUnited States
The day with Ron exceeded our expectations. We really gained a much better understanding of the Big Apple. Having been to New York many times, this was the first time to actually visit something other than Manhattan. Ron really brought to life the neighborhoods we had never experienced.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Bruce: Thank you for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed the "Other" New York, where 80% of us live yet very few ever visit. I hope you come back again and we get to spend more time exploring. All the best until then, Ronald
Jane MannUnited States
We had a great tour of Manhattan. Our driver, Ronald, was very knowledgeable and gave us much of the history of the area. I would definitely recommend him if you are ever looking for a Manhattan tour. He is a wonderful driver. It was the only non harrowing drive we had in the city. Thanks again Ronald.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Jane: You are welcome, again! It was great spending the day with you, your sister and friend! I am so glad you found my driving "non harrowing" and the tour "recommendable." All the best to you and the others! Ronald
Helaine B.United States
Excellent tour guide. Wonderful tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, Helaine! It was great showing you both New York at night. I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Now that you are back in Florida, please send some of that warm air north. Best regards to you both! See you again next time. Ronald

Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Ronald was terrific. He was totally professional and yet charming and interesting. We were impressed by him and his demeanor from the moment we met him. He gave us a thorough overview of the entire New York area and boroughs. We would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Heidi: Thanks for your review and recommendation! It was my pleasure to show your group the "Other" New York. Please give my best regards to all. Ronald
Helga WolfUnited States
Ronald was extremely personable. Very knowledgeable. Courteous and charismatic. We enjoyed our entire day with him. Thanks so much. Bob and Helga
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Helga and Bob: I am so glad you enjoyed the tour, especially after having been here so many times. As I said, "New York is sometimes called the Big Apple, but it might better be called The Big Onion, as there are so many fascinating layers here to peal back." I hope to see you again, and we will peal back a few more layers. All the best until then, Ronald.
Jocelyn JonesNew Zealand
This was an amazing day and our guide Ronald was fantastic. It was so good to see the suburbs of New York and get to places that we could not have seen without doing this tour. Ronald was so informative, we learnt so much in such a short time. He went out of his way to take us to extra places that he thought we would enjoy and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this tour to others. We will also definitely use Tours by Locals for future trips.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review and recommendation, Jocelyn. The privilege was all mine! I am also glad to know you will be using Tours-by-Locals for your future trips. I hope those future trips include another to New York and I have the opportunity to serve you again. Until then, all the best! Ronald
James SorrellUnited States
Ronald gave a great day in NYC, He was punctual, had a very comfortable vehicle, was a good driver and, most importantly, chose interesting things for us to see, do and experience. We really enjoyed his door-to-door service, positive attitude and professionalism. After such a positive experience, we shall use Tours by Locals again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, James: I am delighted you enjoyed the tour and appreciate very much your 5-star rating. I am also glad to hear that you plan on using Tours by Locals again. Hopefully, you will come back to New York and we can see a little bit more. Thank you, again! Ronald
