Garin was a very nice individual who was pleasant to be with. My disappointment with this tour is that I did not feel Garin offered us any information that we could not find out for ourselves. I solicit a tour guide in hopes that they are an expert in the area of travel that we are seeking out and can provide us with an experience that we could not provide on our own.

Garin was an excellent guide. He knew a lot about the Hoover Dam and places to take us for photo opportunities. He has also led an interesting life and was easy to talk to.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you So much Larry. It was a great pleasure to meet you and take everyone on a fun tour. Sending my Best, Garin

Simply said, if you book a tour, request Garin as your tour guide. He is phenomenal! You will find him responsive, informative, accommodating, and completely comfortable to be around. Your tour will be made even better with him at the helm.

We had a great time with Garin. Communications before the event went very well and he was very punctual. Garin showed us the most popular places at Death Valley, but also less known places on the road down there. We had the chance to decide where to go, and how much time to spend on each spot. Also provided us with cooled water. (didn't give a 5star as we had the impression his technical knowledge about the area was not 100%, although we didn't really care about that. As we were more in a relax mode.)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pleasure to take you both to Death Valley with much fun/laughs in a most breathtaking place. I spoke most of the way in about geography, mining, settlers, opera houses, and we enjoyed lunch in a pleasant area. Taking some time for many photo ops that many never get to see. I apologize that you got an impression some technical knowledge was lacking and will remember to ask in the future before the tours end if there was anything I didn't cover a tourist may want more details on.

Garin is very friendly, with good sense of humor,, very entertaining during 3 hours of ride both ways,, he went beyond, once we arrive at Grand Canyon, he made sure we got the right tour, stayed with us during the tour, showed us where to take breath taking photos. Gave all the time at Hover Dam, took us for brief Las Vegas strip ride, before he dropped us at our Hotel. He also came one hour before the scheduled time to suit our schedule. We wish him well. Thanks to Tours by Locals for providing him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was a real pleasure to spend time with you both and hope your journey to San Francisco and back home will be enjoyable and safe. Sending my best! If you ever want to see what I do when I'm not being a tour guide, would love for you to visit my website at : http://www.garinbader.com Best to you! Blessings. Garin

We had a wonderful day at the Grand Canyon and Sky Bridge with Garin. If you are in Las Vegas, this is a fantastic way to spend the day!
