Jen was a great guide, very friendly and informative! She knew SO much about Manila's history and culture, and was able to recite all the facts and figures off the top of her head. Both pick up and drop off at the cruise terminal went smoothly, Jen was on-time and kept us on schedule. The van she arranged for us was comfortable and AC'd and the driver she hired was great.

We have travelled the world and Mary Jen must certainly be one of the absolute best guides we have ever had! She is charming, knowledgeable, speaks perfect English and caters your tour to whatever your interests. We cannot recommend her more highly and thank Tours By Locals for having such a superb representative in Manila.

Jen was outstanding!!!! She was passionate and knew her country so well, down to little details about the type of wood used in furniture. She remembered and showed us the tree later on in the tour. Jen was a walking encyclopedia of Philippines old and new. She told us about her country thoroughly and objectively, good and bad. Jen left no questions unanswered and had a joie de vive and enthusiasm that was catching. She inspired us to return to Manila. Best tour in 14 days cruise! Thanks Jen!!
