Lynn KaplanUnited States
My husband and I and 2 other couples aboard the Sea Princess booked the tour with Danny as first time visitors to Quebec City. We can not rave enough about Danny's knowledge of the area, his warm friendliness and his desire to make our tour fun, informative and so special! He tailored the tour to meet our needs making sure that we got to see as much of QC in the time frame that we had. I highly recommend Danny and guarantee that you won't be disappointed. What a joy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so VERY much for these kind words. Your joy is the bonus in my work. Now I know you will be coming back :) Maybe see you again

Jeffery HallUnited States
Danny was a good tour guide for my family and I. His Best of Quebec and Countryside tour certainly covers a lot of ground and is a good introduction to the area for first time visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment. "Merci" to you and your family.
Beverly FinkUnited States
We didn't want to leave Danny behind! He was funny, knowledgeable and made our favorite city even more special. Orleans Island was special and our lunch spot was wonderful. Would recommend him to anyone looking for all the highlights. Thanks so much
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also want to thank you Beverly for bringing all these wonderful people with you. A delight of a family I must add. Your dad is quite a man and enjoyable to be with. All the best. Danny
Patty TrumpUnited States
This was a very informative and enjoyable day with Danny touring the city and falls. I would highly recommend it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Patty. I had a good time with your lovely group. Kind regards Danny
Danny was very pleasant and provided us with an comprehensive tour of the city and its environs. We have visited Québec city several times before focusing only on the old city and a few restaurants. We had no sense of life in the narrow and hilly streets of this historic city. Born in Québec City, Danny gave us a picture of life in the city for a youngster in a working class family. We appreciated his love of the place. Danny worked hard to meet our needs, we wish him continued success with ToursByLocals
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking time to give me a review. I'm especially glad to have fulfilled your needs. All the best to both of you. Danny
Bob KarschSt. Louis, MO, United States
The rain did not keep us from a wonderful tour of beautiful Quebec City and the countryside with our fantastic guide, Danny George! He was very personable and made us feel like we were his old friends! We stopped at a friendly pub in town for a tasty lunch. Danny was extremely knowledgeable about past history and held our interest every minute! We all, 5 of us, fell in love with Quebec City and Danny!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: On my end Bob....same feeling as for friendly contact. Thanks for the review. Very happy you enjoyed it all.

Our guide Donnie was excellent he was friendly and very well informed. His driving was good and his relationship with all of us was excellent. Anybody should enjoy using him as their private Guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Stanley. I may confirm that your group was very historically oriented with the questions and interested in just about everything. Lovely group. If you remember everything you learned out of this 3 1/2 hour tour you get a high mark. You lose 1 point though for the spelling of my name :) :) Just for laughs Thanks again "Danny"
John WilchekUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the 5 stars John. Peggy and you were the 6th star :)
Julie AmrheinUnited States
Only having one night in Quebec, we book a tour with "Tours By Locals". Danny picked us up at our campsite and accommodated our handicap perfectly. He made dinner reservations at a local quaint restaurant, dropped us at the door, and we chatted through dinner, as he shared his knowledge of Quebec. After dinner, we drove around the sights of this beautiful city. He even welcomed our dog to accompany us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Julie, Thank you so much for the great comments. When I see folks like you so happy with my services, I wish them every day of the year on my tours. I love dogs and I must admit that yours passed unnoticed in the restaurant and in the vehicle. Well educated she was. Cheers

It could not have been better. Danny took us on a tour of the city first before the crowds appeared. Then he headed out to the countryside. His timing was impeccable we arrived to every spot avoiding the tour buses. Danny was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. It was a perfect day. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gee Mary! I feel so good to hear these comments and if I may add that I would appreciate travelers like your party oof 6 anytime any day. Thank you Danny
Judith OvittUnited States
Danny was an excellent tour guide. He was on time for pick up from the ship, took us on a 6hour tour and was very well informed and could communicate his knowledge with ease. Danny told some personal information about his life in Quebec which was of interest to us. His friendly manner and professionalism is superb! He was flexible and sensitive to our group. After seeing the Mornency Falls he took us to a lovely restaurant for a really good lunch. Danny is a top notch guide, friendly and well informed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So much appreciated Judith. So was you company. Whole group :)

Danny was a terrific guide. He met us at our hotel to start our walking tour. Danny pointed out all the highlights and explaining the history of Quebec City. We would highly recommend using Danny as your guide. You could do half day or all day tours. We did the all day tour. After lunch Danny drove us to the Falls and a tour of Orlean Island. We highly recommend a tour with Danny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joan & Jack. A delight it was for me. Thank you for the review. Very appreciated. I also recommend you travelers to all tour guides :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Bill. It was a delight to meet you. Your personal interest made it even better. Say hello to Rita and tell Clare (hope I spelled it right :) to practice her downhill rolls.
Allan ZaretskyUnited States
Excellent Tour Guide and very knowledgeable, we had a great time. We would highly recommend Danny anytime. We saw places we would never had seen if it hadn't been for this tour. Thank you so much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Allan, Very appreciative to hear you say these wonderful comments. On my side let me say that folks like you were a treat for me to tour around. Anytime, please come back and visit. Thanks so much Danny
Danny G -personable, smiling, knowledgeable, Quebec born and bred guide who gave us a great 3 1/2 hour tour of Quebec City and near outskirts on foot and vehicle. In a short time we got to learn and understand the origins of the French influence, the initial struggles and waring with the British, the relationship with the Frist Nation people's and today's modern Quebec. Thanks Danny for a great morning, and we have no hesitation in recommending your services as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much George. It was a delight to tour you 3 around Québec. Interested you were with humour I may add. Made my day just to be in your company. Danny
Kalman BarsonUnited States
Danny was terrific; unanimous praise from entire group. Informative, friendly, knowledgeable. Picked an excellent location for lunch. Impressive ability to smoothly back the van into a parking space.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi All, Really really appreciated to hear such compliments. I personnally loved touring your party in and around Québec. You are most welcome any time again. Thanks a bunch. Danny
Gary CuccioUnited States
Danny did a terrific job given difficult circumstances (rain and wind)... his knowledge was comprehensive and his flexibility really made the day for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gary & Diane. Very happy to read your comment. I hope you were able to enjoy Petit Champlain district at the base of the Funicular.
Richard OppenheimerUnited States
Danny is an excellent guide. His knowledge of Quebec is only exceeded by his friendly and easy going personality. We had a wonderful walking tour of upper and lower Quebec and learned a tremendous amount of information about the history of Quebec going back over 400 years.. Along the tour Danny pointed about places to revisit on our own and recommended many wonderful restaurants which we were able to test on the next few days of our visit. I highly recommend Danny to anyone visiting Quebec.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I greatly appreciate your commentary. Thank you so much. I hope you got to savor the roasted coffee place nearby your hotel.
Mary Margaret CowheyUnited States
Our two days with Danny were absolutely marvelous If we could give more than 5 stars we would. As a guide, Danny has excellent historical and cultural knowledge, great advice on restaurants and shops, and the local tips to avoid crowds and traffic for best viewing of the top sites. His consideration of every members of our group, even those with mobility challenges, endeared him to all of us. Fantastic visit to Old Quebec and its countryside.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great mark of appreciation! Always my goal to offer the best. It's even more motivating to do this work I am passionate about with travelers like you. I have honestly not often seen travelers who remember so much about what I describe on my tours. Wow! You were amazing! It was a real treat for me to spend 2 days which such wonderful folks. Hi to your mom :)
Danny is a knowledgeable and skilled guide who brings the history and current day living of Quebec City to life. As a group of six, we valued the combination of walking and driving tour of city highlights. He accommodated our needs, was attentive and always very pleasant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this review Mr. Hudon. I did look up details about the October crisis, and you were right. I also was amused with the safety belt story.
Gary WalbyUnited States
Danny was an excellent guide and was extremely knowledgeable and funny. Four of us were on the tour and we all thought it was the best tour of the 9 different tours we took on our 14 day cruise. He brought us to a fantastic place for lunch outside of Quebec City, he showed us many parts of the city that other tours don't show, and we were able to experience much of Quebec City as those that live there do. We cannot recommend Danny enough. He deserves ten stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary and party. Wow!! Ten stars!! What can I say to thank you for this. I know. You get 10 stars for the great travelers you are :) All the best to you all.
Gerald ScottUnited States
Danny is a fantastic guide. He knows and loves Quebec. My fiancée and I have mobility issues and Danny minimized walking, expect for Lower Town where cars are not allowed. When we were almost through walking, Danny went to get the car and picked us up to minimize walking. I would recommend Danny to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gerry & Charlotte for this review. Knowing how you love to travel around the world and have the sense of quality, it is even more appreciated coming from folks like you.
Stephen RichardUnited States
Danny gave us an excellent tour of Quebec and the surrounding area. Having lived in this area his entire life, his knowledge of Quebec and its history is outstanding. He adapted the tour due to the weather and our personal interest. He is fluent in both English and French which is very helpful in Quebec. You won't be disappointed if you have the opportunity to have Danny as your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Stephen for these kind words. I was happy to communicate my passion of living here to folks like you. Maybe Jane will want to come to our Winter Carnival sometime :)
Harvey GalperUnited States
Danny was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and most accommodating on our tour. We had to change plans at the last minute, and Danny quickly made alternative arrangement to adjust our itinerary and timing to meet our needs. We were most appreciative of his flexibility.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was more than happy to accommodate folks like you. I thank you so much for the review. You are welcome again whenever you like.
Judy SzustakowskiUnited States
Danny deserves a 5-star rating for our tour around Quebec City and to Montmorency Falls. We were travelling with a wheelchair so his patience and helpfulness were especially appreciated. He offered to stop whenever we wanted to snap pictures or grab a snack. His English was excellent. We were very happy with his services, and I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was quite pleasant to see how you responded to my commentary during the tour. With questions and interest about a bit of all we've covered. Thanks very much for this review.
Bernie BrockmanUnited States
Danny was knowledgeable and had an excellent way of presenting Quebec and the surrounding area. We were very satisfied and will certainly use Tours by Locals again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. I totally enjoyed spending this full day with both of you.
Anthony RabascaUnited States
Danny was an absolute delight! His knowledge of Quebec's history was outstanding equally matched by his engaging personality and joie de vie. He proved to be particularly sensitive to the physical limitations of one of our group. Time with Danny proved to be the highlight of our stay in Quebec.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was by all means a great pleasure to greet you in Quebec. An awesome foursome any guide would love to have on tour. Was great to exchange and get to know each other. Your wife was pretty good in french :)
Megan C.United States
We had a fantastic time spending an August 2016 morning with Danny on his "walk and roll" tour, which gave us a great overview of the historic part of Quebec City, and also got us out to other parts of the city that we would not have otherwise seen if we had not hired a guide. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and a true fan of his home town: highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Megan, Thanks so much for this mark of appreciation. It was more than a pleasure to welcome you. Travelers I would just love to have on my tours every day.
David SalzmanUnited States
Great knowledge; great flexibility to accommodate mobility impaired. Excellent email communication.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for these kind words. It was a great pleasure for me to show you around and improvise where needed. Good company always make my day.
Irene WoodUnited States
We enjoyed seeing Quebec City with Danny. We had just enough walking and driving so that we could later have lunch and explore a little on our own. It is a beautiful city and we were so glad to see so much with Danny's help.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for these good words Irene. You were an awesome threesome to have on this tour. And I am very happy to see how accommodating it was for your needs. Kind regards Danny
Deb ReisingerChapel Hill, NC, United States
I have been running study away programs for 20 years, and Danny is the first guide I have recommended with such enthusiasm! For 5 years, he has taken us around Quebec City and its surroundings. What I love: his knowledge of QC is impressive, he is perfectly bilingual, he is perennially positive, and he knows when to share anecdotes and when to let the group chat amongst itself. We ask for him every year we return here, and I have recommended him to many with zero hesitations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Deborah for this very appreciated compliment. I always take at heart that travelers I greet will experience the best. And I hope we can do this for many more years to come. It has always been a extraordinary pleasure. Thanks so much Danny
Robert QuistSalt Lake City, UTAH, United States
A great way to see the city. Danny was very helpful, knew his subject, and took the time to get us to all the best sites. A thoughtful and passionate guide, the best kind.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment Mr. Quist. I very much enjoyed your company with all the interest you had. Kind regards Danny
