Chris did a great job of giving us an overview of Raleigh in the short time we were there: from the Civil War history to the new campus with the Bookless Library. We appreciated his own personal background and stories that lent to his perspective and allowed us to ask questions to see the big picture parallel connection to today's news. We stopped to see cotton, tobacco, and get Krispie Kreme doughnuts! Chris was knowledgeable and flexible! Extreme gratitude for his sharing of time and expertise!

We highly recommend this tour, be your first stop when visiting Raleigh-Durham. Chris is very informative & knowledgeable of the history of the city & state. Being our first time to NC & having a small window of time, we wanted to make the most of it. We enjoyed our time spent with Chris & his local insight & perspective.

Tour met our expectation for maximizing the experience for our short visit. We wanted to know our options for what little spare time we had to go back to the next day, and we did. The Science Museum in Raleigh is FABULOUS and Pullen Park is one of the nicest small parks ever visited. Two restaurants for dinner were wonderful: St. Roche Oyster Bar & Grill and Firebirds in North Hills area (short drive north of town).
First rate and Tours by Locals is a great idea.

Chris is a very friendly and personable guide. I think we spent too much time in the History Museum that we could have visited the next day. He seemed to gloss over many other places of interest and spoke a bit too much about his other tourists, business transactions in real estate, and his family. More information about Raleigh was needed. His car, an old Saturn, was very uncomfortable to drive around in. We think he tried but missed the mark for us.

Chris was a magnificent guide to Raleigh, North Carolina. He was able to accept a booking on very short notice and tailor the itinerary at my request. He is very knowledgeable about the area and passionate about its history. I give this tour my highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alan, I think we covered just about everything, and a little bit more, and now I have to visit Bellingham.

Chris, Was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had never been to Raleigh before and found the tour an excellent introduction to Raleigh. The drive through the old part of town that is being gentrified and the North Carolina Centennial campus were favorite parts. Barb & Kelley Conrad

The tour was perfect. We enjoyed every minute of it. He gave us a lot of information about the area and its history. He didn't rush us. We would definitely recommend Tours by Locals to others.
