We toured w Vicki when our cruise ship docked in Picton. A great thing about ToursbyLocals guides is that they live in the area that they tour in & they can take you to off-the beaten-track places. Vicki satisfied this need wonderfully. She took us from Picton along the coast from Port Underwood to Rarangi & back via Havelock. We had a great lunch in a local restaurant & visited a local art gallery. No tours do this route because the coast road can't handle buses. The tour was great. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Donald, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure to take your group on tour and I am so pleased you enjoyed this very special part of the Marlborough. I wish you all the best for future travels. Thanks again Vicki

Vicki treated us to a wonderful day outside of and around Picton. Going to the sustainable Yealands winery was a highlight as was getting introduced to green mussels and chips. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sandra very much for taking the time to do this review and I appreciate your kind words. It was a pleasure to show you a special part of the Marlborough and I wish you all the best for future travels. Kind Regards Vicki

Vicki, our tour guide, was extremely informative, cordial, flexible and arrived on time. These attributes of Vicki made our tour memorable and provided us with a very positive, educated experience about Picton and that special surrounding area of New Zealand. In addition, Vicki is "FUN" and will make certain that YOU "ENJOY" your day! Thank you Vicki!

Vicki did an outstanding job of showing us around Hobart, Mt Field's National Park, and the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. She also took us through Richmond & New Norfolk. I highly recommend her as a guide. I'm glad she was our guide the day.

Vicki was a delight. Very personable and fun. We visited the perfect mix of places for a one day tour. Personal anecdotes, lots of history for the area, and so much more that only a local could know. It was a great day.

Vicki was waiting for us with a big smile at 8am. She customized the day to fit our needs. We drove to the Bonorong Wildlife Park where we feed the 'roos and she took a lot of pictures of us. We also visited Richmond Village where we had a lovely lunch and she recommended a local wood shop for us to buy some locally made products. Her van was comfortable and we had a great day. Thanks Vicki!

Vicki proposed and provided a good tour for the 7 of us. She engaged us well and we had fun interacting with her as well. She was knowledgable and well connected to the locals, making our experience in Tasmania not purely a "tourist" one but a more "local" one.

Customization allowed us to choose from a number of options. Vicki was very knowledgeable, personable, and a good driver. Her van was in nice condition and comfortable. She really optimized our time in Hobart. I would highly recommend this tour and this individual.
Mary LuhringUnited States
At Mt. Field National Park our guide, Vicki M, walked with us through the Pandani Grove around Lake Dobson. Vicki then left us at a trailhead with giant swamp gum trees, drove the vehicle down, and met us at Russell/Horseshoe Falls. Following lunch, Vicki took us to the top of Mount Wellington for a magnificent view of the area. Vicky was very cordial, attentive, and informative, and we were delighted to see the field and mountain areas near Hobart at a leisurely pace with no crowds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou Mary for your lovely review. I thoroughly enjoyed showing you a small slice of what Tasmania has to offer. I wish you all the best for future travels. Best Regards Vicki

Vicki was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. She took us to a great place for wine and lunch and we would certainly call on her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankyou David for your kind review. I thoroughly enjoyed showing you a little taste of what Tasmania has to offer. I wish you all the best for future travels. Fond Regards Vicki
Our experience with Vicky more than met our expectations. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful and was adaptive to our needs. On a Sunday in Hobart she had to be imaginative (shops closed etc.) but we saw it all even a town with a craft influence open and charming. Thank you Vicky from both of us. We recommend you highly.
