Santosh Antony OlakkengilAustralia
This was an amazing tour and Eric is an excellent tour guide. He was punctual and friendly and made sure we were comfortable the entire time. His car was spotless and spacious. He knows so much about the area - even my children were interested in what he had to say. He took us to the most breathtaking sights- it was truly a remarkable experience and I'm so glad we did this tour. If I'm ever visiting San Francisco again, I will definitely take another with Eric. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Santosh. It was a real pleasure meeting your family and showing y'all Yosemite. It's families like yours that make my experience memorable. I hope our path cross again someday and you allow me to show you something new. Till then, all the best. Eric

Eric had great stories to tell and left us very happy we had chosen Tours by Locals and not a large bus experience! We saw everything we wanted to see and more. Only thing he couldn't control was the traffic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ha!! that traffic was the worst but it didn't do much to impact the fun we had. Glad we got nice weather especially for lunch. See you next time. Eric

It was my distinct pleasure to have Eric as our guide this past Saturday. He was truly amazing! Five Stars all around. I had my two 17-yesr-old granddaughters with me and they were so impressed, also. That is a great compliment from teenagers. :-) Our itinerary included a tour of Muir Woods, Sausalito, Golden Gate Bridge, China Town, Marin Headlands, and Mission District for Mexican burrito or tacos. Delicious!! I am a travel agent for 29 years and Eric is definitely at the top! Great job and fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gherry. It was a pleasure meeting you and the girls. So glad they had a good time,, I enjoyed it as well. See you next time. Eric

David PostUnited States
Definitely recommend a tour with Eric. Within the first 10 minutes I felt like I had a new friend. He is very flexible, easy going and knowledgeable. Immediately he figured out what I was interested in seeing and doing, and adapted the tour to my interests. Very professional and had a wonderful 9 hours with him. If I ever get back to San Francisco again and am looking for a tour guide, he is definitely my first choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words David. It was a pleasure to meet you as well and glad we got the most out of our day. Hope to get to meet your wife next time. Eric

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The pleasure was all mine. Glad you two had a good time in Napa and glad we go to see a bit of Sonoma as well. Hope the rest of your visit to SF was great. Catch ya next time. Eric
What a beautiful place to be on a fine winter's day. Our tour of Yosemite started quite early, 7am, particularly for our teenage sons. However, the majesty of Yosemite and Arkadiusz (Eric) banter had even them totally immersed in the wonder of this park. Eric is a genial host with sound knowledge of his subject and a genuine passion for what he does. He certainly provided a wonderful day out for our family on our brief stay in San Francisco. Well worth the drive, totally enjoyable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Neville for the kind words. Great adjectives to describe me. Pleasure to meet all of you and glad the kids enjoyed themselves and we got some good hikes in. We really lucked out on the weather too. Catch ya next time. Eric
Krisla DuPonteUnited States
Exceptional Service. We missed our flight so we were a few hours late for our tour appt. Eric graciously accommodated and made every effort for our family to see the complete tour. This was the best idea to start our visit to San Francisco. Eric also kept our teenage and pre-teenage children engaged. Highly recommend Eric for everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Krisla. Pleasure to meet y'all and glad to hear everyone enjoyed the tour. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. See ya next time
Karol ShaulUnited States
Eric was friendly and so knowledgeable about San Francisco. We spent all day learning so much about the city and was even able to walk through Muir woods, have an amazing lunch, and see all the sights. He matched our pace and was a delight! We would absolutely recommend Eric and his service. Fantastic!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Karol. Pleasure to meet you all and glad to hear you enjoyed SF. Hope to catch ya next time. Eric
Samantha SokolUnited States
Eric did an amazing job showing my family of four around San Francisco. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and all of the details that he was able to share enhanced the experience. He was very funny and personable and definitely tailored our day to what we were interested in. We all very much enjoyed our time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Samantha. I really enjoyed your family and most of all your father. Please send him and the rest a 'hello' from me and hope to see y'all next time. Be well, Eric

Jonathan LauUnited States
Eric was an awesome guide! He picked us up in a beautiful clean roomy suburban and kept us entertained the entire trip to Yosemite. He had been monitoring the traffic to Yosemite this whole summer and suggested an earlier departure to beat traffic...great move. You cannot teach this attention to details that make good trips great ones. At the park he took us to some of his secret spots to take fantastic photos. Eric is experienced, professional and passionate tour guide. He is the BEST!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jonathan! It was a pleasure having you and the girls on the best birthday/workday ever. All the best, Eric
Good experience, knowledgable guide, plenty of time and good time allocated. Well drive, good food and locations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, hope to see y'all next time. Eric

Robert PetersUnited States
Eric was a great host for the day. He took our family of 5 all over the Bay area and provided interesting information about the history, culture, people and more. It was nice to be able to add a bit in areas of more interest and less in other areas. He was very flexible and accommodating I would recommend the tour to anyone and would certainly do it again. Thanks for a great day enjoyed by all: Mom, dad, and kids 16-22.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Robert. It was a pleasure show your family this amazing city. I'm glad to hear you got the most out of our tour. Wishing y'all a happy new year and looking forward to when I show you more of the Bay Area. Eric
attentive, informative, approachable, funny, interesting, comfortable, very welcoming and extremely hospitable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was truly a pleasure to show you my favorite part of California. Glad that you enjoyed it so much. It really makes my job so rewarding when I have people like you join me for a ride. Dzienki!
Suzanne NylanderUnited States
Eric was a very friendly and flexible tour guide, allowing us to use our limited time to get a great overview of Half Moon Bay, Pebble Beach, and Carmel. As a San Francisco native, I even learned some new things and saw a new part of Carmel. Thank you for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome and thank you. See you next time. Eric
Ray HeadUnited States
We could not have been happier with the service and tour we had with Eric. We spent about eight hours with him and he exceeded our expectations in every respect!! I can highly recommend him to anyone wanting an enjoyable and informative tour of SF and the entire Bay area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Ray. It was a pleasure showing y'all around and it's comments like yours that make me realize how much I love my job. See you next time. Eric
Farida KbarMiami Beach, FLORIDA, United States
I highly recommend Eric for many reasons: He was wonderful with my nephew and niece, knowledgeable of the history and the inside stories of the region, punctual, helpful in his recommendations, flexible in accommodating our requests and adjusting to our plans (or lack of them lol). He also introduced us to some parts of San Francisco only locals go to and some parts that are customized to our passions and interests. He listened, shared, and was a great companion to the whole family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Farida, please just stop. You and the family was one of the best guests of the year. Such a pleasure to spend a day with y'all. Please send my best to everyone and looking forward to the next time. -Eric
