Date: Jan 19/18

My wife and I have used Tours by Locals at least 50 times and Karina has to have been the very best. We booked a highly unusual tour and one I doubt any of her clients had even considered and before we arrived to begin the tour Karina had done EXTENSIVE research on her own. Further at the end of the day she surprised us by arranging a meeting with a 3rd party (with a translator) so we could ask any questions she could not answer. We're on a cruise and we wish we could take Karina along!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Robert and Dear Mrs. Diana Thank you for your kind comments. You really made my day. I wish you will visit Peru again some day. Thank you for five-star. God save you and bless you , Karina

Tour: #92640, Camping on Ica desert + Dune Buggy and Sandboarding Tours, Ica, Ica, Peru    view tour
Date: Jul 9/17

I was a little disappointed in the dune buggy ride, as the pictures showed smaller buggies, driven by one person. Instead, the buggies held 13 people and we did not get to drive them ourselves. The ride did last quite a long time, which was fun, and the driver set us up to watch the sunset on top of the dunes. Our private dining experience was phenomenal. Watching the moon rise over the desert, seeing the stars, and the dinner were amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Celeste, Thank you for the five stars. I was lucky to have a generous lady as my guests. I wish you best ¡Muchos Gracias!

Karina was pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. She arranged the tour over Nazca for myself and children...and it went off without a hitch, despite our transportation to Nazca being over an hour late.

Karina was extremely helpful in putting together our Peru itinerary. We spent a wonderful day in Nazca with her as a very knowledgable and interesting guide. But she went above and beyond that by helping arrange the rest of our visit in Peru.

Tour: #86231, Tour to the Nazca Lines + visit to seabirds at port of Lomas(Full day), Nazca, Ica, Peru    view tour
Date: Aug 14/14

We had a fantastic time with Karina in Nazca. She waited patiently for us at the bus station even though the bus was almost an hour late, then escorted us to our hotel, arranged a laundry service, and took us to the airport for our flight over the Nazca lines. Everything went smoothly and was done profesionally. She also arranged our visit to see birds at Puerto de Lomas and we paid an ad hoc visit to an ancient cemetery where mummified remains can still be found. Would highly recommend Karina's services.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your high rating and heartwarming comment. I admire their great care for the birds. I'm glad to hear you liked the sites we visited. Pieter and Nicola were really nice couple. Hope to see you again!

Tour: Tours Ballestas Islands (full day) Paracas - Customized for Marianela Montemayor, Paracas, Ica, Peru
Date: Nov 16/13

Karina Was a wonderful guide, I had constant communication with her from the moment I started enquiring about the tour up until I finished. I was picked up at my hotel at 3am and she was very punctual. Bus tickets where already arranged and the whole itinerary was ready. She went an extra mile by making the most out of my time and even got the change to incorporate city sightseeing in Ica which was not previously agreed. She made sure I had everything on hand and answered every question . Amazing tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marianela was an excellent traveler, I am very pleased that she has chosen me as her guide.
