Steve was a friendly and knowledgeable guide to the New Forest. This was a special trip in that we were surrounded by the free-range horses and colts throughout our drive. We saw small villages, a wonderful garden, and stopped for scones, cake, and coffee at a very pleasant cafe with a delightful staff. We could have stayed in their garden all day. Steve took care to see that we saw what we wanted - and stopped often so we could photograph the horses. This is the tour to take in Southampton.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What can I say it was a good day and I thoroughly enjoyed your company your responce to my services is perfect and you private comment is also very much appreciated. It would be good to meet you again or to be able to service any family or friends who might visit the UK in the future Kind regards Steve

The things about toursbylocals.com that I love so much is the flexibility , the insightful knowledge, my schedule and the guides. Steve was so incredible and fun. He went above and beyond filling our day with amazing facts, incredible sites, and clean bathrooms. He saw what we liked and kept finding us more, above and beyond what we paid for. Would recommend our tour and our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes don't forget there are two sides to this transaction I am truly humbled by your response and your wording is very much appreciated. You are lovely people and I very much enjoyed our short time together. It was my first tour of this season and if all of the future ones are as satisfying as this was I will have a fantastic year.

With the gift for gab, knowledge of area coupled with the ability to customize, Steve was able to turn a visit to Highclere Castle into a tour of Southampton's Titanic and other monuments, a stop at Winchester Cathedral, and visit to Jane Austin's home. His knowledge of the area's history and amazing ability to find the right route and best access were amazing. He is very flexible in creating the right experience for you.

We booked Steve almost a year in advance and so glad we did! Steve picked us up at LHR and drove us to our guesthouse in Southhampton with a tour of Stonehenge on the way. Perfect! He was right on time and was a wonderful guide on our tour of Stonehenge and we felt lucky to have him. If we had been a bit less tired from our all night flight we would have toured another location as well as that certainly was available with Steve.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kelly you were great.Those kind words are very much appreciated at this current time and what I need to help me to plan for another season next year. I hope our paths may cross again one day.Have some great holidaying destinations in the future

Steve was a fun guide to have in this port. It was interesting in that he was a last minute substitute for the guide we had originally booked through TBL that became unavailable. Although this was not Steve's "regular" area, he had prepared himself for our visit, researching areas that might be of interest to us. He was very accommodating and pleasant and made a number of suggestions for our tour. We rejected some and accepted others and wound up with a pleasant time together. Good job, Steve!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Arnold I very much enjoyed our time together and felt my efforts of researching another area was appreciated. You were happy with my flexibility for which I was grateful. You were great couples to be with.Good luck to you all.

Steve's love and passion for The New Forest is evident. We didn't know much about this area but turned into one of the best days ever. The New Forest has an amazing number of wild horses with beautiful thatched cottages, rural villages and churches. We had a tour of Exbury Gardens, the very touching Brockenhurst WW1 hospital village for New Zealand soldiers, and even visited Arthur Conan Doyle's grave! We had a fantastic lunch in a country inn. It doesn't get much better than this! Thanks to Steve.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tommy I really appreciate the detail of your response coming from such an experienced traveller as well as a retired executive from the travel and tourism trade. I really hope that we see you both some time in the future and we can then dig out more unusual parts of the UK to visit.

Steve picked us up in his MBZ and drove to the Salisbury Cathedral. Great tour at the Cathedral and we viewed the magna carte! Due, to weather issues, we decided not go to Stonehenge. Instead, we sped off to the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum and it was perfect for motorbike lovers. We also made it to the New Forest and saw the horses running free and the St. Nicholas Church. Loved the church, the history and the local parishioners--beyond friendly! Even though the weather was not perfect...the tour was!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well what very kind words I also enjoyed our time together. The important part of your response is the flexibility I bring to my offerings that I like to think on the day, on the spot we can invariably come up with a cost effective solution.

Steve was prompt with our pick up from the cruise ship. Even though not technically covered on the tour, he made a point of pausing in front of important monuments in Southampton and gave us the scenic ride back through New Forest. His estimate of the tour time was over-optimistic but he was flexible in allowing extra time.

Steve was a delightful conversationalist and very accommodating of our massive amount of luggage. We took his tour to Stonehenge and Salisbury before boarding our cruise. There was unusual traffic but he navigated back streets so we could still maximize our tour time. It was nice to see Stonehenge, but we should have hurried through and spent more time in Salisbury. That was completely our fault, not Steve's. We look forward to hiring his services on our next trip!

We booked the Stonehenge and Salisbury tour with Steve, and requested to go to Old Sarum as well. Steve was quite agreeable, and we were able to do all three in one day. I try to collect a magnet from most places we visit, and I ran out of time in Salisbury Cathedral (Don't miss seeing the original Magna Carta). Steve was so kind as to buy a magnet and send it to me after we returned home from our trip! He masterfully guided us around traffic, and took us on pretty side roads. Very scenic! Many thanks!

Six of us had a wonderful day with Steve! He took us to Beaulieu Estate where we visited the Manor House, Abbey, and grounds of the estate. We had a quick peek into the National Motor Museum, which is enormous. We had only allowed a half day for Beaulieu, so there is still much left to see. Steve took us to a lovely pub in the New Forest for lunch. Then we had a tour through villages, and countryside, stopping to visit some lovely, historic churches in the area. It was a lovely day.

When we got to our hotel, he waited for us to check in, then took us on an "overview tour" of Southampton with recommendations on where to eat, shop, etc. He was very informative and personable. We would definitely have him transfer us again if we return to Southampton. Thank you, Steve!

Steve did a great job for our tour - he was very patient, flexible, and caring! Our original planned destination was closed unexpectedly and he easily found us other things to do that were great! My father uses a wheelchair and Steve was very understanding of our needs in that respect. Also, he came all the way from Southampton to the Isle of Portland to meet our cruise ship (a 2 hour drive) so we appreciated how accommodating he was! Highly recommend any tour with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kristin I am sorry for the slowness of my response to you. I had a really rememberable day I think you and your parents are lovely people and I also had a great time visiting new areas. Like you I was disappointed about Sherborne and that means you will have to visit again one day. The Swanery more than made up for that anyway. I wish you all the best for the future.

We had a marvelous day with Steve. Took in Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, and the New Forest. Steve drove us thru the countryside of south England; it was beautiful. Highly recommend Steve as a tour guide, as he was knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of all that area. Since the visitors center at Stonehenge had been vandalized the night before, it was closed and we wanted to buy an art work there, Steve is going to get one for us and send it to us. That is exceptional service! Thanks, Steve

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeanne thank you, you were great company as well I really enjoyed our time together. I'm sorry I cant boast yet about finding your art work but I am on the case but not found anything as yet.

Not only did we have lots of "cruise" luggage, but also 4 of us were going to 1 airport terminal and 2 were going to a different terminal. Steve arranged for the 2 to go in a separate car driven by his adult son, making all of us comfortable as well as on time for our flights, in a very convenient manner for us all. Thank you Steve!

Steve is a jovial fellow with knowledge and love of his town of Southampton, New Forest and surrounds. He was also capable of avoiding, as much as possible, traffic jams by use of side roads which also allowed for country landscape viewing. Our pickup from Heathrow, drop for Highclere tour, and final destination to Southampton hotel were all timely, except when we tourists chose to delay for shopping! Steve was very accommodating. Excellent day, particularly as we had just landed and were exhausted.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a nice piece of feed back. I also really enjoyed our time together and hope that you all return to the U K soon and we are able to get together again. Thank you.

Steve did a great job for us. Meeting at Heathrow went off without a hitch. During our transfer to Southampton, Steve provided interesting insights into the area and included some local sightseeing as an added bonus. We arrived at the port in perfect timing to board our ship. Steve was personable and informative and made our routine transfer a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Norman it was a pleasure to get to meet you all as well, I really enjoyed meeting you and having the opportunity of getting to both know you and show you a tiny bit of what this area has to offer. I hope we meet again one day.

Steve was an excellent guide. He was very courteous and flexible with his time. He did not make me feel rushed and even took his time to show me some extra places. I highly recommend Steve. The next time I'm in the Southampton area I will definitely request him again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was an absolute pleasure to spend my day with Eddie. We were able to achieve all that he wanted from his time here in Southampton. I was more than happy to accommodate his small requirement and it made it an additional bonus for me to visit somewhere different and it emphasizes the flexibility that I bring to my customers experiences. Thank you Eddie I look forward to seeing you again.
