If you need tour guide in Antigua, you need to connect with Emelda F. Emelda know Antigua very well, she will take you to any place that you wish but she will also recommend some places that most of he tourist never visit. As an example (we asked her to try local food) and she took us to visit chef Olson Thomas who prepares local foods at one of the stops on a busy road. There were able to try local food, meet locals and off course meet Olson. Fabulous memories of Antigua because of Emelda.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow. Thank you so much Dmitry for this awesome review. It was my pleasure and I had a great time with you and your group. You were an amazing bunch especially your mom. Do come again.

Emelda and I started the tour promptly on her very comfortable vehicle. She showed me around the entire island of Antigua. I had the opportunity to learn so much about the island from the history to the nation's future progress. I am in love with Antigua and would love to return someday and have Emelda show me around again. Very impressed with Emelda and the hospitality of the entire nation of Antigua.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew. I had a great time with you. Do come again.

We are very happy that we scheduled an island tour with Emelda the day after arriving in Antigua. Since we were staying on the island and had a rental car - it was great to get the lay of the land during our tour. Emelda helped explain how we might be navigating the island once we were on our own and that was very helpful. Emelda is a very kind and sweet person - we enjoyed her very much. She showed us many historical sites and other sites of interest. thanks Emelda for the fun morning!

We had a delightful tour of the island with Emelda. We used the wheelchair accessible van and it worked very well. We toured much of the island and saw what really was the best of Antigua - Devils Bridge, Shirley's Heights, Nelson's Dockyard and the Rain Forest - among others. Emelda is very knowledgeable about her home island and is a wonderful tour companion. Highly recommend her.

We had such a great time exploring Antigua with Emelda. She was so kind, knowledgeable, and helped to accommodate our children (ages 6 and 10) into the tours activities! It was so much nicer to explore the island with just our family rather than in a large group from the cruise ship. We cannot say enough good things about Emelda! Thank you for a great day!

Our tour with Emelada was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate about Antigua. She was very concerned to make sure that we could see and do everything possible on the island in our limited time that we were their. She was very conscious of the traffic and the big tour buses and was able to avoid meeting up with them at the different locations. Therefore we able to stop and see many sites and move out quickly before the other buses arrived. Emelada, best tour guide on Antigua. 5 stars!

She took us to Sandals and we made arrangements for our Antigua tour on the way. We enjoyed the history she offered and the beautiful sights of Antigua. Our group was very happy with the quality and price of the tour. Once again we were surprised to see Emelda at the airport sad to say goodbye to Antigua and our new friend.

Emelda did a wonderful job showing our group the island of Antigua. She is very knowledgeable about the island and takes great pride in showing it to others. Due to factors beyond Emelda's control she had to modify our tour while in progress. She made a few phone calls and all of our needs were met in a professional and caring manner. She is a true pro at her job and I have already recommended her to others. A trip to Antigua would not be complete without a tour by Emelda.

Good, but not Great! We were dropped off at most points with little or no information, such as Nelsons Dockyard where we knew no history of what we were seeing. Also, most tour operators have a cooler of water for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I will be sure to provide plenty of historical information about each stop on my future tours. I did feel that your friends all really enjoyed the tour based on their comments. I find that most travellers bring their own water with them, which is why I promised fresh pineapple instead.

We spent the day wih Emelda and, looking back, it is amazing how much enjoyment and how many sights we packed into one day. Emelda's affection for all things yellow matches her sunny disposition and her infectious good humor. Emelda knows every corner of the island and always recounts a tale, a legend, or a personal memory that gives some special context to the sights you will see. We enjoyed all her stories about growing up on the island and her anecdotes about family and friends. An excellent guide.

Very nice tour with Emelda. She is very knowledgable about her island and will freely give you information. We went to places no busses could go and it was quiet and interesting. Had the feeling we were visiting with a friend and not with a tour guide. Very nice and very clean van. We really enjoyed our visit. Thanks Emelda, we strongly recommend your tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Andre for such kind words. I am very happy you enjoyed my tour and I had a great time with you also and do hope you will visit us here in Antigua again. Thank you very much for recommendation.

We went on a tour of Antigua with Emelda. She was a very personable, wonderful informative guide! She showed us many different areas of interest on the island and stopped to get us fresh pineapples which people are encouraged to grow locally. Emelda was by far the best tour guide that we have experienced on any of our previous cruises. Her tour van was very clean and comfortable.She was a fountain of knowledge and lots of fun. We would love to recommend her tours and give her a 10!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Beth. Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging response. I was very happy to show you my beautiful island and do hope you will visit us once again. I had lots of fun with you and you made my tour a fun one. Love ya

Emelda was a wonderful guide! All emails were answered promptly. She was waiting for us as we left our ship as promised. Her smile and enthusiasm made us feel welcomed. Emelda is extremely knowledgeable and did everything in her power to please us. I would recommend her as a guide and she will customize a tour as you request of her beautiful island.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathleen. It was a pleasure to have you on my tour and I am very happy that you enjoyed it. Do hope you visit my beautiful Island again. Give my regards to the others and I do wish you a happy and blessed 2014.

The guide was just fine, but the car reeked of cigarette smoke, and the cover up scent. It caused a severe exacerbation of my bronchitis condition and delayed my return to wellness by several days. Please use smoke free cars only. Forced to reduce the length of the tour for this and other reasons, such as bad road (not her fault).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I do not smoke and no one has ever smoked in my car. During the tour the passengers never complained about any cigarette scent. However I recall hearing him coughing from the time, I kept asking him if he was ok and he said yes. The road going to the Devils Bridge is not paved and has never been paved however they told me they really enjoyed Devils Bridge. I recall the 2 ladies complaining of back and neck illness and said that they were tired from the tours on Barbados etc. Really sorry.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Comments were brought up to guide who was surprise to hear about the cigarette smoke in the vehicle, since she claims that neither her or anyone who works with her smoke. Either way the guide was friendly reminded of the importance of preparing the vehicle for tours and to add disclaimers about the Devils Bridge Road current state.
