William BungertUnited States
She provided an excellent and professional tour to our group of 18. We were on a RCCL cruise and our tour was met on time and delivered back to the ship before sailing! We would book this tour again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bill and Billy for your kind words, I really enjoyed my day with your group. I'm glad you did as well. Trina
Ken PetersUnited States
Trina was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed her tour. She showed us all of downtown St John as well as the Fundy Coast. Her tour included a separate driver which made it a little awkward when it was time for tipping.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ken thank you for your kind words, as to the tipping issue, in future if you would like to tip, it is appropriate to tip your guide only and leave it at the discretion of the Guide to share with the Driver. I am very sorry this was awkward for you, unfortunately having a driver is necessary for me due to restrictive laws in our area. Best Wishes, Trina
Patricia BottUnited States
This was the best tour of our cruise! Trina and Mila work well together to provide an informative tour with beautiful scenery. We got to see both high tide and slack tide at the Reversing Falls Rapids, get up close to a light house, walk into a sea cave, and stroll over a covered bridge. And even though it was early the trees were beginning to change color - gorgeous! Thank you Trina for a wonderful tour! Craig and Patti Bott
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patti and Craig, thank you for your kind words, Maila and I also enjoyed your company and seeing the tour makes you happy, also makes it so enjoyable for me. Trina
Alan GoldbergWimington, DE, United States
Trina gave the 4 of us ( 2 couples) an excellent tour in St. John, NB on September 5, 2019. Her driver, Mila, also did a great job. They were both very friendly and pleasant to spend time with. Trina is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I particularly enjoyed our walk to the sea caves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan for your positive critique. The Caves are also my favourite place. Trina
Susan OharaUnited States
It was a most pleasurable experience. The van arrived right on time and the driver was very personable. The ride was very comfortable and the vehicle clean. Trina was very knowledgeable and furnished us with the most interesting history and facts about St. Johns. She took us to the Reversing Falls twice and it was fantastic both directions. She also took us to the Caves along the bay which were quite the site to behold. The four of us had a grand time seeing the sites made all the more fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan for your positive review. I also enjoyed my day with your group. Trina
Arthur MartinOklahoma City, 42, United States
Great tour of Bay of Fundy and St Martin. Trina was very knowledgeable and informed us on many local areas. We would regret her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Arthur for you kind words, I really enjoyed my day with you group as well. I hope you get back to our area again some time. Trina
Michele GribbinsUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating, I really enjoyed my day with your family. Your two boys were a pleasure to interact with. Trina
Stephen GlaudelUnited States
Trina (and her driver) gave our family group of four a Great tour of St.John and its environs. Our timing was perfect, with low tide upon ship-arrival, and high-tide at tour-end, so that we could see the full extent of the reversing-rapids, the sea-caves, lakes, etc. Also, we saw historic lighthouses, monuments, shipyards, etc. A great tour for those wanting a combination of natural & man-made highlights of the region. At tour-end, she dropped us at a tasty restaurant, very convenient to our ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steve for the kind words, it was a pleasure for me also, you were such an appreciative family. Trina
Kristi CastagliuoloUnited States
We did this tour as a cruise excursion & it was nice. Trina met us right in the terminal & then we were off. She is knowledgeable of the area & gives lots of details & has things to show you while driving. Having a driver while she guides is a nice touch, that way she could fully engage with us and not have to concentrate of driving as well. My only minor complaint was that it was hard to see things that she pointed out that were higher up on buildings, etc. from the 3rd row on the mini van. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kristi for your positive response and most importantly your critique on not being able to see the upper stories in the historic district. I will try to rectify this problem by asking if my passengers would like to do a short walking tour in that area you are referring to. It was a pleasure to do a tour for your group. Thank you. Trina
Alan LudmerUnited States
Excellent. Trina very knowledgeable and pleasant
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan for your rating and kind words. I really enjoyed the day with your family and friends. Hope to see you all in the future. Trina
Bernard NashUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your 5 star rating, Trina
Lindy ThibodeauxUnited States
Trina was simply wonderful. She had a driver so she could focus her attention on our tour and our questions. She was very knowledgeable about the area and allowed us to make decisions on what we saw and how long we spent at certain locations to tailor the tour to our liking. She even gave us a great recommendation of where to go to sample local beer after the tour was over and dropped us off right at the front door. The small bag of local goodies was a pleasant surprise!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lindy, thank you so much for your kind words, It was a pleasure to spend the day with you both in one of my favourite places. I have thinking about your mom and hope her surgery went well. Trina
Dorota Bialobrzeska LukaszukPoland

Susan R.United States
We had a great personal tour with Trina, and Jim as our driver. There was one other couple with us in a comfortable well-maintained tour van. Trina was very knowledgeable of the area, both its history and current points of interest. Starting and ending at the Rapids was a great way to understand the effects of the dramatic tide changes. Our trip to the SeaCaves near St Martins was just what we wanted, and the fish chowder was a wonderful recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan thank you very much for your positive review, I enjoyed your company today and hope to see you both in the future. Enjoy the rest of your cruise. Trina
Monika SpindelUnited States
Trina was great! We waited until the last minute to book a tour and were lucky that she allowed us to join a group she already had, coincidentally of people from our same ship. The ride was comfortable, the tour lovely. She even gave us all treat bags, a sweet surprise!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Monika for your kind words, you and Pierre were a pleasure to spend the day with. I hope you come to Saint John again in the future. Trina
Diane ToddUnited States
There were four of us from the US. Our guide Trina, met us at the hotel in Saint John. We saw the reversing rapids in both directions before and after our ride out to the Bay of Fundy. Trina's knowledge of the area was great, and she was a joy to be with. We would all highly recommend Trina and Tours By Locals
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane your kind words are appreciated. Trina - Hope to see you all in the future.
Alison HollandsUnited Kingdom
Trina was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic and we leant so much from her about the culture and make up of the local people, it's history and saw some beautiful sights! Trina had a really good device in her car (same effect as a microphone) which meant even in a very large van on the back seat, that we could hear her clearly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Alison, I certainly appreciate your rating and hope that you will contact me for future tours if you are in this location. It was very nice meeting your husband and mom and dad. I hope they enjoyed their stay in Canada and will come back again some day. Trina
