Today, Anne and her husband Dave (who drove their beautiful van) provided my wife and me with a day that was unparalleled in all our years of travel. Anne is an extremely knowledgeable guide and she brings the history and legends of the area to life through her passion for Ireland. We felt as though we were in the company of good friends as we experienced so many beautiful sights we would certainly have missed on our own. She is truly a gem! Make a new friend...book your tour with Anne & Dave!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dennis for your wonderful review! It was such a pleasure for us to have had your's and Laura's company for the day. It was a bonus that the day was beautiful, but you both outshone the weather and the scenery! It was a lovely relaxing say with new friends. Wishing you both the very best for the remainder of your holiday in Ireland, and safe travels. Best wishes from Anne & Dave

Anne and Dave were amazing! They toured us all over the beautiful Dingle Peninsula, gave us a fabulous recommendation for lunch, helped my husband track down a rare bottle of whiskey and where extra accommodating of my one year old making extra stops that she would like and playing songs just for her. This tour was an absolute highlight of our trip and will be something that we treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Anne and Dave!!!

Anne and Dave were great!! Besides taking us to sites such as the English Market, Blarney Castle and Jameson, she and Dave shared their knowledge of Cobh and Cork residents, history, economy and cultures. We learned so much about the region and the people. By the end of the day we felt like family. I highly recommend Anne and Dave.

Date: Aug 2/19

Anne is the 9th ToursByLocals guide we've had in Europe and easily the best. We visited Ring of Kerry & Dingle peninsula. Her husband, Dave, drives their comfortable, air-conditioned van, freeing Anne to narrate and answer questions. This helps a lot on narrow, difficult roads. Both are lifelong residents of the region and very knowledgeable. Nice people; relaxed, fun to be with. We saw many sites unavailable to large coach tours and had frequent stops to walk around sites. Highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bill for your kindness and thoughtfulness in writing such a great review. You, Michael and your wonderful family were such lovely relaxed people that it was an absolute pleasure to have had your company, and we also learned such a lot from you. Hopefully our paths will cross again some day. Our very best wishes, Anne & Dave

We had a wonderful tour today with Anne & her "driver" David. Both of them gave us a big ole Irish welcome. We couldn't have ask for a more cordial, informative, & pleasant guide. Anne made it her goal to be sure we'd never forget her part of Ireland. She was at our beck & call. Even to the point of stopping at Lidl shopping market for us to stock up on chocolate & snacks before returning to our ship with ample time to spare. Then you Anne & Tours By Locals‼️

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Linda! We had the best day with you, Toni and Michael, you are so relaxed and full of fun! The time with you all was way too short, and it would be lovely if our paths were to cross again. Best wishes for the remainder of your cruise, and safe travels now and in your future travels.

We wanted to book a private tour for the Ring of Kerry, and luckily I found this company and Anne. Anne and her husband Paul grew up in the area and provided a lovely personalized tour in their pristine van, taking us to some beautiful off the path sites, while providing in great detail the rich history of each location. We were also able to explore the Skellig Ring (tour buses cannot navigate there). We cannot thank Anne and Paul enough. It was a true highlight to our Ireland vacation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dania for your lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your tour with us. We had such a lovely day with you, Robert, Louis and Michael, you are all such wonderful company, the day went way too fast! We wish you all the best, and hopefully we will see you in some future visit to Ireland. Best wishes, Anne

Our group of four had a wonderful day with Anne. This was our first full day in Ireland, and Anne's tour set the bar very high! She was enthusiastic, very informative and a gracious host. We all felt that had we done this tour on our own, we would have missed a great deal of the history and background of the area. Her husband Dave is a great driver (well worth it on these roads) and good fun, too. Lovely people, lovely day! Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Whitney, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in taking the time to write such a wonderful review. Dave and I had such a lovely day with you, Chris, Lynette and Larry. It was full of fun and the day absolutely flew by. Hoping that our paths will cross again some day. Best wishes from Anne & Dave

We were thrilled to spend the day with Anne and Dave. This married couple provided a great representation of the local lifestyle and culture. Our group of 6 decided to change our tour to a scenic, less-touristy itinerary and it worked out great. The day was extremely customized to our interests, seeing unique sights, and hearing fabulous stories about the region and the people. At the end of the day, it was as though we had spent quality time with old friends. It was a great experience, do not miss it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Linda! We are really grateful that you took the time to write such a wonderful review. You were all great fun and as you say it was a lovely day spent with new friends.

With Anne and her driver, Dave, we did an off the beaten track tour of the Beara Peninsula. Anne took us where no tour busses can go. It was a stunning day with magnificent scenery in every direction. We stopped for lunch in a village pub and even had the chance to chat with a local fisherman. Anne shared with us many interesting stories related to the area. We concluded the day feeling we had made two new friends in Ireland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sharan for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We really appreciate your thoughtfulness. It was a pleasure for us to have had such interesting and fun company as yourselves for the day, and indeed it did feel like spending the day in the company of good friends.

Despite poor weather, gale force wind and heavy rain, Anna gave us a momorable tour of Cobh, Cork and Kinsale. She changed her regular itinerary to keep us dry and warm. We Visited Blarney garden and castle. She took us to a nice seafood pub, Bulman, in Kinsale. Throughout the tour, she gave us detailed history of Ireland. We are so glad to find out that bacon(ham) and cabbage is what Irish people eat on St. Patrick's Day, not corned beef and cabbage! Thank you Anna. I heartily recommend her.

Thoroughly enjoyed our day with Anne and Dave. Weather was rainy all day but we made the best of it. Anne and Dave were wonderful, fun, personable, and very gracious. They shared their knowledge and stories and we enjoyed getting to know them. Very accommodating as well. My mother caught a cold and they swung by a pharmacy so we could pick up some cold medicine and then dropped part of our group at the Titanic Experience and returned my parents to the ship. We highly recommend them if visiting Cobh.

Anne was very informative and accommodating. We wanted a non-traditional private tour for six adults. She arranged a tour that allowed us to see the Irish countryside and the small towns and villages along the way. We started the day with a tour of the Middleton Distillery which is a wonderful event in itself getting to see and taste Jamison Whiskey. We then drove to picturesque Kinsale where we had a great lunch that Anne booked at Fishy Fishy. Anne and Dave were delightful and knowledeable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Ed, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in taking the time to write such a wonderful review. It was a pleasure showing off some of the highlights of County Cork to you all and I am so glad that the weather played ball. Wishing you all an amazing time for the remainder of your cruise, and hopefully you will find that elusive scone. Our best regards to everyone, Anne and Dave.
