Zoe was nothing short of delightful in her recent capacity as our tour guide in Cornwall. She took our list of places of interest and generated a tour hitting the highlights with well timed rest periods between travel. Highly personable, well informed and fully engaging our group in a broad spectrum of local interests in our travels around the region. A very pleasant and comfortable person to be spending time with. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending Zoe as your travel guide. Kevin & Carol Eagle

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah bless you all! So glad it all worked out and that you enjoyed. It was great to meet each of you and showing you around, thanks for being such friendly and accommodating guests and for introducing me to Ilfracombe as well. Hope you recover from the jetlag and are able to continue all your adventures soon. Cheers. Zoe

We thoroughly enjoyed our customized tour of Cornwall with Zoe! We were impressed by her knowledge of the region and loved her attentive, energetic spirit. I appreciate how she communicated prior to the tour to tailor the experience to our food and wine interests. Throughout, she made sure we were enjoying the pace and content, handled all logistics, and suggested alternatives when weather prevented one site visit. It was a relief to leave the driving--navigating narrow roads!--to her. A pleasure!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a delight to show you around. I hope you had a wonderful dinner and the wind eventually let you sleep!

Date: Jun 29/15

Zoe's car is not fit for 4 people. We had a rather long journey from Fowey to Tintagel and it was miserable. Transportation Method should read 1-3 people Honda Jazz and for 4 or more I use a ____ which requires a __$ surcharge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very sorry to hear now that the journey was miserable! At the time you all seemed cheerful, despite the traffic hold up, and as we parted you said that you had greatly enjoyed the trip and would be providing positive feedback. NB I do specify in my tour description that I can provide a larger car on request, for an additional fee.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The traveler has been issued a partial refund for the inconvenience. In addition to a partial refund, the guide has edited her tour description to a maximum of three travelers in her vehicle.

Zoe was a delightful guide to spend the day with. She had great knowledge of Avebury Stone Circle since her family owned property there. With our permission, she brought her dog Luna to spend the day with us. We really felt like locals enjoying a beautiful site on a beautiful day. Thank You.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you - it was a pleasure to show you around.

Zoe is the perfect local guide if you want to see Avebury, Stonehenge and Salisbury as she has a very personal connection to it through her ancestors. She makes sure that she keeps everyone interested. By the way, she herself is very interesting too :)!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was great pleasure to meet you all and show you around. I hope the rest of your trip was enjoyable. Happy New Year!

Zoe has an incredible wealth of knowledge and personal experience in London and the Avery area and is also very intelligent and uniquely educated about the region. She is very personable and my 12 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the two days we spent with her. I would recommend Zoe for any group looking to glimpse what it might be like to grow up and live in the remarkable city of London. I am hoping we can catch up with Zoe in Cornwall on a future visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the lovely review John and Emma, it was such a pleasure to show you both around. I very much hope to see you again sometime.

Date: Jun 13/14

My mother, 10-year old daughter and I had the opportunity to enjoy Zoe as a guide on the Peter Pan Kensington Gardens London tour. Zoe was truly amazing and we had such an enchanting experience exploring the garden with her. She shared beautiful stories of her and her siblings growing up in JM Barrie's home and playing in the park. We will never forget our time with her, her beautiful voice echoing in the underpass, feeding the duck and geese with brown rice she brought.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the lovely review, I really enjoyed our brief time together and would love to see you all again some time.

It was a excellent planned and conducted tour with a friendly, good and very wise guide. We would like to book Zoe again! Thanks a lot!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to be with you for the day; I look forward to your return. Would you mind very much if I use the photo I took of you in Arthur's Seat for publicity for the tours? You look so beautiful and happy and in the right place!

Zoe is personable, resourceful, considerate, kind, and thoughtful, and has intimate knowledge of Avebury. We saw all the sights on our wish list and had a wonderful day touring with her! All of our many, many questions were patiently answered. Zoe had even planned a surprise to entertain and enlighten us - a storyteller to take us on a walking tour of Bath! Our 11 hour day was never rushed or lacking, and was perfectly capped with a walk through the beautiful English countryside. Such a memorable day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bonnie. It was a great pleasure to show you both around.
