Our tour and tour guide were great, we wanted to have a half a day of immersion in Manila with the minimum of driving, Margareth was very knowledgeable and great at navigating us into the churches and cathedrals which was challenging as it was Sunday morning with lots of services underway! Her English, sense of humour and flexibility meant we had time to enjoy some local beers in Intramuros, not on the Agenda! Would highly recommend Margareth and ToursbyLocals for their great service!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I enjoyed soing the tour with you. You are all amazing. Regards to the others.

I really appreciated the tour. We had a wonderful guide. This tour permit To visit the main places of Manila and discover the stories of the philippines.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for spending time visiting the capital of my country. It amazes me of the fact that you really have to fly from Cebu and go back the same day just to see Manila. I can feel that it’s all worth it.

Margareth went a full five for five stars!!, what a wonderful experience having her lead us through historic Manila, from Intramuros to its outlying areas including the American Cemetery and Memorial. Her personality and easy-going nature was the perfect complement to such an informative visit, although structured, she was quick to learn what interested us most and adapted the various stops along way to suit us. I would certainly recommend Margareth to anyone interested in a thorough tour of Manila!

Another great Tours by Locals trip organised by Mary. Picked up on time at the Cruise Port and saw all of the items on the itinerary. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see a bit of history and Manila sites in safety.

Two couples scheduled this tour while on a cruise on the Holland America Westerdam . Mary Margareth met us at the port as scheduled and on time. We all had a great time on this tour, and all agreed that Mary Margareth is a fun and knowledgeable guide and travel companion. Her commentary and cultural insight added greatly to the tour. She scheduled a great lunch, and overall fun experience. We all agreed that we would schedule Mary Margareth again without any reservations.

This was WAY better than killing time at the airport! My colleague and I had a great day in Manila thanks to Margareth and her driver. Meetup was easy and the day was entertaining. Very happy we chose to do this tour instead of 13 hours at the airport.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for that wonderful rate. I enjoyed your company as well. So sad to know that the luggages were just sitting on another terminal. If we only had known, we were able to get those and bring it with you at T3. It’s a good thing that you still have an ample time to do that and thanks letting me know, it will be a good help for my future guests. Till next time.

Amazing..Made a friend for life..great communicator, flexible and knows how to manage large groups
Tour was planned according to our preferences and specifications. Margareth was very helpful and accommodating—even personally making sure that my 10 year old son was entertained and occupied enough during the whole trip. She was also very careful in terms of planning the activities making sure to balance the "roughness" of the activities with scenic and informational needs.
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
Margareth was waiting for us with a big smile at the early appointed hour and showered us with a wealth of knowledge about Manila, its history, and current state. The traffic here is horrible but our driver was excellent and Margareth helped pass the time with so much information. We visited all the major sights without being rushed. She was a delight to spend the day with. 6 out of 5 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! it’s overwhelming! It is indeed an excellent tour with you!

We had a really great tour with Margareth. She's an extremely experienced tour guide with a huge amount of knowledge about her city. We were taken to all of the main sights plus a lunch stop at Jollibee which I'd specially requested. The pick up and drop off at the port was seamless and her English is excellent. I would highly recommend using her.

Nona FeuerUnited States
Margareth was an excellent tour guide for Old Manilla. She taught us so much about the history that we did not know. We had a great time and I would highly recommend her!
Mary is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide - just what we were what hoping for. Very flexible to fit in with our timings. I admit I knew very little (well nothing) about the history of the Manila and the Philippine islands but after a day with Mary, I feel I could write a book. She is very informative and obviously loves her country and it's history. Thank you Mary - I know we will return and hope to discover more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you also Ma'am Christine. Regards to Sir Goeff. Good luck on your trips. I am so excited to see you again.
Peter DixonNew Zealand
Very good day. The guide was well informed and welcoming. I chose to walk rather than take a pony, which was a good idea. Less than an hour walk and not too hard. We had a nice lunch and got to learn a. It a lot about Philipino food. The traffic back into Manila meant quite a long journey but the bamboo organ was interesting and I enjoyed seeing the Jeepney works, although you just look around by yourself. Altogether a decent day trip out of Manila and some great scenery.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Doc Peter. It's a pleasure to be of guide you.
