Rod & Pat - thanks for coordinating 2 vans for our group. All of us agree that this was a wonderful experience! There were lots of laughs (i.e. the concrete deer), lots of local history, visits to places we probably would have missed on our own, & time to linger if we chose. We especially loved the personal attention (thanks for hanging with Mom during some of the stops!). Although it would have been nicer to have the 2 vans together at more of the stops, we loved our tour. We highly recommend Rod & Pat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you

Excellent day. Rod really knew the history of Saint John. He shared with us all the local lore. Rod is one of the best tour guides we've ever had.

Guide substitute was Pat Bonner - excellent guide, friendly and informative who allowed us every option to tailor the tour to our specific requests. He took us where we wanted and made suggestions that worked out wonderfully - especially stopping at best place to get excellent sea food chowder. We all agreed that it was so much better than bus tour - we could spend time we wanted where we wanted, and as long as we wanted. ToursByLocals is definitely the way to go - Reversible Falls is amazing.

Date: Sep 21/16

My wife and I had a great time with Rod in Saint John. He knows the city, it's history, and it's stories very well and he likes to share them. Rod knows his city from the fog shrouded Reversing Rapids to the Police Museum (really nice) to the sunny downtown streets. Rod's introduction to Saint John was a real help in exploring the city on our own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Rod

Rod was very clear this was St John, not St Johns. Although we had reserved for 2, there was no problem adding a couple with whom we had become friendly on our cruise. Rod had a great sense of humor and was extremely knowledgeable (considering the natural tendency of guides to make up stuff). We saw exactly what we wanted to see given the time constraints of our cruise, and had a great time doing it. We would consider hiring him as a private guide for a longer return holiday if that eventuates.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Rod

Date: Oct 2/15

Rod was a wealth of knowledge and took us to many interesting places with great descriptions. The only thing that could have been a setback was the interesting trip to St. Martins and it's caves which he said was not part of the tour but we showed Rod the itinerary and he took the extra time to take us there and didn't rush us and we really enjoyed that area. He was extremely pleasant and made our trip well worth while. There was virtually no change in colors in early October but it wasn,t his fault.
