Michael AelingUnited States
Emelda was a great tour guide. She took us all around the island and was very knowledgeable about local history, customs, architecture and people. She is very proud of her island and we were very happy to spend the day with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael. I really enjoyed the day with you both. Do visit my beautiful inland again.
Best possible private tour in Antigua! Emelda was responsive to our initial booking. She is a great guide with excellent knowledge of the island and his history. Vehicule is clean and comfortable. The 5-hour tour was perfect for our family of 4 and by leaving early (8 am) from the Hotel, the sites were not yet crowded by the cruise ships tourists.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Roberge. I had a great time with your family and I must say that your children are well behaved. Give them all my regards and do come again.
We really enjoyed our tour with Emelda. She was on time, did what we discussed before going and was happy to discuss the island history and show us the best of Antigua (very nice island for sure). We would definitely recommend going on such a tour if it's your first visit there. It gives you an overall idea of what is going on on this island within few hours. Everything felt pretty safe. We always prefer going on private tours like this one. So much better than a big bus tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Francois for such kind comments. Do visit us again. It was surely my pleasure to tour you around my beautiful island.
Stanley RarickYorktown, VIRGINIA, United States
Emelda was the perfect guide. She gave recommendations on where to visit per our interests. She stopped at churches and cathedrals that piqued so we could take photos. Emelda shared her vast knowledge of Antigua. Her van was very comfortable and we were thankful for the air conditioner on such a hot day. We ended our day at one of the beautiful beaches. Emelda was conscientious of getting us back to our ship on time. I enjoy private tours over the mass excursions of the cruise ships.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stanley. Sure was a wonderful day. Please visit us again. God bless you and your family as well.
Super thanks to Emelda for ensuring a smooth and wonderful tour at Antigua. She's always with smile all throughout the tour and provided very good insight on local life in Antigua. Well done!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jason. Oh yes the day was great and your family is awesome. Do come visit us again.
Ben S.United States
We enjoyed our tour with Emelda. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and a good driver. We toured most of the island in less than half a day. A great way to be introduced to Antigua. If you are touring on a Sunday or are staying at English Harbour, be sure to ask Emelda in advance whether the usual tour description will change.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ben I am very happy you enjoyed the tour. I am very sorry that there were no local restaurants opened on Sundays.
Nancy M.United States
Emelda met us at the dock and off the four of us went in a very nice van, for a tour of the island. As we have mobility issues, she was great about getting us close to every attraction that everyone could be involved. She was very informative about every aspect of the island as well as fun and engaging. We had lunch at a local outdoor restaurant that was very good, as well as a great time to hear more from her. We all highly recommend Emelda to anyone coming to the island. She is great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nancy. You folks made my tour very easy. It was a lovely day. Do come and visit again. Merry Christmas to you all.
Augustus YiuUnited States
Emelda is courteous and knowledgeable. She took us to all the essential places we wanted to see during the five-hour tour. She allowed adequate time for us to appreciate the beauty of the places, and explained well about each place. I would recommend her to anyone who visit Antigua.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Augustus. I am very happy you had a great time. Please visit my beautiful island again. Merry Christmas to you all.

Cathy FlemingUnited States
There are not enough words to describe how incredible this experience was. Emelda was everything you would want in a tour guide: kind, patient, courteous and very knowledgeable. We had been to Antigua before, but she showed us sites and areas we had never seen, told us history we didn't know and the views she took us to were amazing. We would not hesitate to book with her again. We had a very memorable and wonderful time, and loved the lunch experience, too. Thanks, Emelda, for everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cathy. It was really a great day. Do visit us again. Love to all of you
Sarbajit BanerjeaUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Emelda. She's an excellent tour guide and we had a great time chatting with her as we drove to different places. She really brought a personal touch to our tour of Antigua and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and her company! Don't hesitate to book a tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sarbajit. I had a wonderful time with your family especially your beautiful and intelligent daughter. Do visit us again.
Emelda picked us up promptly at 8:30 from our hotel and took us on a wonderful tour of Antigua. We found her to be very knowledgeable and friendly. We never felt rushed while we took in the beautiful scenery of Antigua. She even accommodated us in a search for a restaurant which belonged to a friend's relative in St John's and waited while we popped in to say hello. We will definitely use Tours By Locals again, and absolutely contact Emelda again when we return to Antigua! Linda Taylor
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda for your kind words. I had a wonderful time with your lovely family and I am happy you enjoyed my tour. Do visit my island again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lori. Thank you for your kind review. It was really a great day. Do come visit us again.

Barbara GasawskiUnited States
Emelda Frank was a wonderful charming guide. We feel like she was an old friend sharing her homeland with us. We went places the tour buses off ship would not travel. If you want to really see St Johns, all of it without being dropped off at shopping, hook up with Emelda. Her van was clean, comfortable. Price was great! No language issues. Best tour of our whole vacation. Thank you Emelda for making memories for us. -Barb
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbara. Happy New Year to you and yours. Hope to see you again.

Andrew ChungUnited States
Emelda and I started the tour promptly on her very comfortable vehicle. She showed me around the entire island of Antigua. I had the opportunity to learn so much about the island from the history to the nation's future progress. I am in love with Antigua and would love to return someday and have Emelda show me around again. Very impressed with Emelda and the hospitality of the entire nation of Antigua.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew. I had a great time with you. Do come again.
