Date: Oct 29/18

Steve was ready and waiting for us to get through our immigration and customs process at the Everglades cruise terminal. We then had a tour that was full of information about Miami and the many different cultures that populate the city. The information was factual and without bias. The vehicle was appropriate for the two of us and our luggage. At the end of the day Steve dropped us at Miami international airport. A very pleasant day before the long flight home.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John and Lugia, Thank you very much for your 5-star rating! It was a pleasure for me to meet you, and I appreciate your interest in the area throughout the day. I hope to see you again on your next visit to South Florida. By the Way, the name we couldn't think of is "Cardiff Arms Park", according to my wife! Safe Travels!

Date: Jul 1/18

We booked a full day tour with Steve in order to learn more about Miami and the history. Steve shared his extensive knowledge and many years of experience in Miami. Steve was able to help us meet our goals of learning about the communities, cultures, and histories of the people of Miami. Steve was patient and accommodating and open to questions and customizations. It was enjoyable to learn and see more about Miami without having to pay attention to traffic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stephen and Stevie, It was a real pleasure for me to help welcome you to the diverse communities of Miami. A private tour is the best way to learn about a neighborhood when you move to a new area. Thanks very much for your 5-star rating! Your kind remarks will help others to select this tour, knowing they are going to find it worthwhile and enjoyable. All the best to you both, in your new home and in your new city!

Our second tour with Steven was of Miami. Once again the detail provided was first class. I wish we had booked this tour to last for two days. Steven is so committed to providing an excellent level of service. Not only were we able to visit many different areas, of Miami, learning about the inhabitants and architecture of each, we were also taken to the Biltmore Hotel. Here we rode the same elevator that Al Capone used when staying in the Penthouse Suite.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Brian and Carol, again, thanks indeed for your 5-star rating! It seems the more I host this tour, the more I learn about the various cultures that weave the fabric of Miami. When you visit next time, I hope you can see the "new" Little Havana, and perhaps the Wynwood Walls, which we didn't have time to see. I'm glad you selected two of my tours, and enjoyed them as much as I do. All the best, and hope to see you again.

Steve is so enthusiastic that he provides power point notes/photos which he uses in his car to supplement the story he is telling. His depth of knowledge is incredible. We not only saw Fort Lauderdale we learned how it came into being and has grown through the ages. The Everglades airboat tour was delightful and skilfully organised as was the visit to the Sawgrass Recreation Park and Charity Alligator Sanctuary. Steve knew everybody, wherever we went, and was able to fast track access.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Brian and Carol, it was indeed a pleasure for me to host your visit to the Everglades. Thank you for your very kind remarks, as those who read them will rest assured that they, too, will truly enjoy this experience. I'm glad to hear that the photos are helpful, as I am such a "visual" person. Also, I was very interested in your stories about England and Wales. I hope to see you again, soon.

I don't like tours and my brother bought this tour for me which we did Miami and Little Havana. I highly highly recommend this for anyone who is planning on visiting Miami. Steven our guide was exceptional better then expected. What I loved about this tour is that it wasn't just about seeing all the tourist places of Miami but seeing all the parts that have made Miami what it is today. A true ToursByLocals about the locals. I would will do it again when visiting Miami

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jared, just like you, I didn't like the local tour I was given, either. That's why I re-wrote it back in 1993, and have been working to improve it since then. I want to thank both of you for your interest, and hope you can visit South Florida again, sometime soon.

We had a very comfortable trip to the Everglades. Steven gave us a good background to the history of the Everglades. The boat trip was fun and we saw 2 alligators and lots of colourful birds. The animal sanctuary on the site was fascinating and the animals obviously well cared for and happy. Steven is well informed as to the plans to ensure the area and the animal habitat is preserved for future generations. A very interesting trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Angela and Campbell, I'm very glad you enjoyed your visit to the Everglades. Out on the "River of Grass", you can feel the effects of our past mistakes, but you can also feel the opportunities we have to save the ecosystem. Thanks very much for your lovely comments, and I hope you enjoy your cruise! I hope you return to Florida, and we can visit even more interesting places! Steve B.

Stevens was a great and professional guide. But the price of the trip was quite high as compared to the value of the trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words about the professional qualities of your tour experience. I try to do my best to make the tour interesting and entertaining. Yes, the tour price is high, but it's unfortunate you did not feel the value you received. Some costs of the trip are hidden, such as port fees, chauffer licenses, insurance, marketing and accounting expenses. I'm confident my prices are appropriate for the depth and quality of the tour you received. It was a pleasure for me to host your visit.

Steve picked us up promptly in a nice comfortable sedan, and proceeded to give us an excellent tour of Miami. He is very professional yet extremely personable, and just a font of local knowledge. The way he ties together history and local lore really makes for an insightful experience. In all of our many years of travel we had never hired a local guide for a one-day tour, but we found this to be very worthwhile, and Steve has set the bar quite high for any future guides we might hire.

He was very accommodating, helpful, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humour. It was a cold windy day on the Key so it was wonderful to have a private bus to get us around.

Steven phoned while we were still on our cruise ship, preparing to depart: he was ready whenever we were! The drive from MIA to Fort Lauderdale was filled with stories of the modern day leaders, their roads to success and their impact on Florida and the nation. Once in Fort Lauderdale, the conversation shifted to the founders and we were able to see the sites where the settlement began and then grew into the modern city. Steven was then kind enough to drop us at MIA for a flight home. PERFECT DAY!
