Trish was delightful, kind and patient and knowledgeable. She completely covered our brief, answered every random question and exceeded our expectations. We never felt rushed, or that we missed out on anything. We had a brilliant time and for those travelling with a family we could not recommend Trish enough. The kids want to take her home, or at the very least see her again soon!

Trish has organized a wonderful tour for four of us in LA after our California cruise. Not only did she covered all the Itinerary, Trish went an extra mile took us some foodie places in LA as well.

Until our next trip, we really appreciated your devoted effort and professionalism in tourist industry.

She asked our preference in advance and arranged best tour for us. During the tour, she always granted our requests and rescheduled the tour then and there. Though we are not good at English, her explanations were very clear and helpful to understand.

Melanie BurrellUnited States
Our tour with Trish was fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the area. We enjoyed learning about the history of Hollywood and got so much more out of seeing the different sights with her than we would on our own. Trish is very warm, friendly and engaging and made the tour fun for our four teenage children as well as ourselves. She has a wealth of information about LA and is able to tailor the tour to cover most interests. We would definitely recommend Trish!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melanie, It was such fun to spend half a day with your sweet family, showing you the fun highlights of Los Angeles!

Susan SchuettUnited States
We're 2 Wisconsin women who weren't about to rent a car in L.A. & didn't want to spend hundreds on cab fare. We had specific things we wanted to see, but couldn't find any tours that included everything we wanted. We lucked out when we did a Google search and found Trish! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her! She did a ton of legwork ahead of time to make sure our tour ran smoothly. She is professional, responsive & a ton of fun! I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks so much Trish!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, I am so very happy you found me for your private tour guide, and that I could contribute to your special vacation memories. I very much enjoyed doing the research for your tour, and I learned a lot along the way. I appreciate that you were well prepared too. Thank you for your recommendation and very kind comments, I'm glad you had as much fun as I did! Hope to see you again. Wishing you girls a fun summer! Best wishes from Trish
I booked this tour in LA with one day's notice...and never regretted. Trish was really wonderful and very responsive in her communication. She was there dot on time and tailor made the tour to suit our needs. Her van was adequate for our family of 7. Highly recommended.

Trish was so accommodating and personable. This was a tour for my daughter, and Trish made sure she did everything my daughter desired.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lee, It was all my pleasure touring your family around Los Angeles before your cruise. I enjoyed having your daughter as my co-pilot and I am beyond happy that she (and her parents) was pleased with our adventure! She even opened my eyes to something new, I had never noticed the "California Dreamin" mural until she asked about it. I'm very glad I was able to find it and work it into the tour route. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and I wish you a great school year ahead! Many thanks, Trish

We found an angel in the City of Angels! Trish did excellent pre-planning of our trip, making it one of the most memorable and enjoyable tours we've had so far. She goes out of her way to make sure everyone is comfortable and having the best time! She is so kind, personable, and has wonderful knowledge of the city! She is very caring and professional, and she is the tour guide to choose if you want to have a super relaxing, stress-free tour. She is amazing at navigating the city. We highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sangita, It was my pleasure to share my love of this city with your family last week! I really enjoyed the unique and different sights that you chose to visit and it's fun for me as a tour guide to learn new places in my own hometown.

Thank you for taking time to stop by and leave such kind remarks for others considering hiring me on Tours By Locals. Best wishes for the new year and beyond, Your new friend Trish

The sites and bites tour of Hollywood gave us a real flavour of Hollywood. It was a really nice mix on our tour and we got to visit local eateries we would not otherwise have ventured in. Trish our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and clearly puts the time in to make sure she is excellent at her job. She was very friendly and good company. We would highly recommend this trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, Thank you very much for choosing me to show you the Sites & Bites of Hollywood. I very much appreciate your kind words about me and the tour itself. I am very happy to know you enjoyed the combination of food tastings and history shared along the way. Wishing you continued safe travels on your journey north! Warmest regards, Trish
Chloe Jean M.Makati City, METRO MANILA, Philippines
Trish was a great guide. She especially made sure we were not wasting our time on LA traffic with planned stops and enough time to take photos. She was punctual, respectful and helpful with the wheelchair of my Mother. She loved to take our photos and made sure we got all the good angles too. She pointed good places to eat and even brought us to a gelato store to combat the heat of that day. I was particularly happy that she gave heads up on travel time so we could maximize the day. Thanks a lot Trish! ☺️
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chloe, Thank you for taking time to rate our recent adventure together in Los Angeles. It was such a pleasure to show you ladies the sites and help you capture your memories on film. I am very happy you enjoyed everything. I wish you continued safe travels with hopes that our paths cross again. Sincerely, Trish
