Willard is a pro, and his tour was outstanding. He knows Great Zimbabwe extremely well, and he's very good at making it come alive. The car trip is long but definitely worth it. This is an extraordinary unique place in the world, and having Willard there was worth every penny, as we would have had little idea of the significance of what we were seeing without his guidance. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was indeed a pleasure to take you back into Great Zimbabwe history. I have been there many times but each time seems the first time for I put myself in the travellers shoes. I enjoyed the trip as well, thank you Berth and Bia

Absolutely superb tour and guide. This was my second of three tours with Willard and by far the best, largely due to the majesty of the ruins. Willard is very attentive, knowledgeable, and makes great conversation about a wide variety of topics. Highly, highly recommended both as a site and individual guide.

Excellent tour guide, really knew the place inside out. Even when we had a burst tyre, fixed it in minutes. I highly recommend this personable, highly educated man, a great tour guide!

The Great Zimbabwe Monument is a wonderful place and with Willard as our guide for Tours by Locals it was even better than we expected. His knowledge and experience with getting there and the park was of the highest level. The day would not have been near as rich and rewarding had we done this alone. Willard brought the monument to life. We have used Tours by Locals many times and have never been let down. Priceless is the word.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am grateful you enjoyed the tour.
Willard is perfect. Everything was much better than I expected: car, driver, guiding. He wasn't on time - he was before!!! If anybody want guide in Harare, Great Zimbabwe or generally in Zimbabwe - only Willard.

Willard was a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. Even though my booking was last minute, he accommodated me well. Great Zimbabwe was worth the visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dennis, always my pleasure introducing visitors to Zimbabwe.

He was flexible enough to start the tour early despite my short notice. Because this is a long 12-hour tour, I wanted to come back to my Harare hotel before dark. His flexibility was very helpful. The Ruin itself was great, too, making this day memorable for me.
Sebastian S.United Kingdom
Really spectacular ruins, and no crowds or touts! Willard was an excellent guide; knowledgeable, accommodating my requests and pointing out some interesting buildings as we left Harare. We met another guide at Great Zimbabwe who gave a very thorough account of the monument's history. Thank you, Willard!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is my pleasure to introduce people of the world to Zimbabwe. Every time I take a new visitor to the World Heritage site, I do feel like its also my first time because of the visitors response upon seeing the monument for the first time. Great to have you in Zim Sebastian.
Leonardo Di LeoBelgium
As my other tour with Willard, this has also been a great one: I finally had the chance to visit the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, a site that I had been willing to see for a very long time. Willard was also ready to answer to any questions that I may have and this was extremely helpful and very much appreciated. Thanks again Willard!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am humbled. this has been a great experience for me also, for I was taking Leonardo on his dream tour which started years ago when he was at school, Great experience indeed. Thanks Leo and you are always welcome back home to Zimbabwe
