Date: Nov 6/17

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am really sorry that you felt this way. I have already apologized for the mix up and not being there on the arranged day, that was my mistake. I do try to take a light-hearted/humorous approach to world politics and events on tours and I am sorry you thought this was inappropriate. I thought we covered quite a lot of history, but I guess we did not, I do always ask if there are any questions often several times, usually too many times I think. We got a nice day though not wet as was the previous day!

Completely enjoyed our day tour with Greg!! It was everything and more than what we anticipated. This tour ended up being the highlight of our vacation as we were able to get out of Halifax and into the Annapolis Valley where we felt more at home away from all the crowds. Thank you for being so conscientious of our "Must See's" and throwing in a couple that weren't on our list!

Our group of five thoroughly enjoyed our Sea Peggy's Cove and more with Greg! It was a gorgeous day, and Greg showed us so many beautiful spots on the coastline. Greg's suggestion for lunch at the Trellis was terrific. Everyone's lunch was delicious and the service was great! Peggy's Cove was awesome, although crowded, which is always the case we understand. I would highly recommend both this tour and Greg for his friendly,informative and pleasant manner.

Highlight of my holiday were the 2 days spent with Greg. He showed me the real Nova Scotia away from the crowds but I still got to see the popular places at times when they were less crowded. He is very down to earth & unpretentious, and knows the area & locals inside out. I would totally recommend him ... plus a 2-day tour if you can.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Christine!!! I really enjoyed touring with you, showing you many of the off the beaten track (path) places in Nova Scotia, places most tourists overlook. It was a Pleasure!!! Thanks Again Regards Greg

Our day tour with Greg was one of the highlights of our trip. Greg tailored the tour to our interests and included sites & experiences we would not have had touring on our own. We appreciated his in-depth knowledge, comfortable van, and friendly, easy going personality. Thanks for a great tour Greg!

Excellent tour. Greg did a great job on a day the hurricane was passing and there were power outages. His local connections got us a great lunch when almost everything was closed. He adapted the tour to our interests and the weather conditions.

We had an unexpected problem due to vehicle mechanical issue, but Greg rose to the occasion and found an alternative and our tour proceeded. It was a great tour with some out of the normal paths around the glorious coastline and a great stop for lunch. Greg is a very experienced guide and was very flexible in meeting our requests. Very pleased with our tour

I chose a custom tour because I had already booked trips to all the usual tourist spots. Greg communicated with me several times prior to my visit to narrow down what exactly I was looking to get out of the tour. I wanted to get off of the beaten path and see what makes Nova Scotia Nova Scotia. Greg delivered! We toured Chester and many other sites along the south shore. I saw beautiful villages, coves, and coastlines as well as some areas of historic and commercial interest. A great ending to my vacation

The tour was exactly what we asked for and amazing. Greg however could not be heard by people in the back of the van. He also was constantly checking his phone and stopped his narration several times to read or respond to a text. This was extremely annoying and could have been handled during our stops.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you for your comments, I am really sorry about not being able to be heard in the back of the van and checking my phone. I will ensure that this does not happen again. Really Glad you enjoyed the tour!! Thank You Regards Greg

What a stroke of luck to have Gregory as our tour guide. My husband and I have taken tours though Tours By Locals before, and we have never been more impressed. Although we had a dreary rainy day to drive around the region, Greg made every minute count. He has wonderful historical knowledge of area, answered all our questions and was fabulous company to boot. We loved that he was flexible and willing to investigate a vineyard we had read about. His van was very comfortable, clean and perfect for our trip.
