Dario was our guide in Teneriffe , Cannary Islands! Wow! What a fantastic day we six had!! He tailor made our tour to make it possible for our traveler on scooter could see the island in marvelous fashion !! He took us places, explaining geology, culture and nature every step of the way!! Then we went to villages where no bus could go! To top is off he took us to a marvelous , authentic restaurant overlooking the coastline!!

I used Tours by Locals for a full day private tour while my family was in Italy. It was amazing! During our trip, we took numerous tours through a variety of agencies and Tours by Locals was by far the best! The local tour guide provided a different kind of perspective, a deeper understanding of the local history, customs, the best places to eat, and much more. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved his job. I highly recommend Tours by Locals to anyone who wants a one-on-one local "friend" as a guide. You won't regret the choice!

Had three wonderful tours with Walda and Jolign in Amsterdam. First morning it was Rembrandt at the Rijksmuseum and along the Rembrandt Walk to his house and studio. Next afternoon it was Van Gogh's final ten years through a year by year history as reflected in his paintings and letters. Third day to the fabulous Maritime Museum of the VOC. Tomorrow windmills, cheese factories, and local fishing villages. Thanks for being our guides.

      About Tours by Locals

      Vancouver based Tours by Locals was founded in 2008 out of a desire to connect travelers with true locals who could provide a unique point of view of their country, city, or region.

      What Makes Tours by Locals Stand Out?

      Many tour operators tout the opportunity to travel with “local guides”. Tours by Locals takes it a step further - actually offers the opportunity for locals to learn how to be guides, and earn certification to show off their town, city, and country.

      Travelers will get a truly local view of the destination, from people who live and work there every day. Their guides go through a rigorous vetting and training process. All tours are private, so it’s just your group and your guide, making it the perfect day tour activity for families or couples. Tours are pre-existing but can be customized and tailored to your interests.  

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Tours by Locals?

      Travelers seeking an authentic view into a city or country through the eyes of a local will most enjoy this tour experience. Their tours are typically day tours lasting between 3 and 6 hours. They are an excellent option for arranging a day tour during a port stop on a cruise.

      While you have some input over what you want to see and do - and will communicate with your guide prior to the tour, this kind of experience is best suited to travelers who really want a local and authentic view.

      This can sound wonderful, but might be disappointing, especially since the term “local view” can mean a few different things. If you want to see classic sights and learn about the history of the destination, make sure your Tours by Locals guide can satisfy these interests.

      Top Destinations

      They have local guides around the world, covering almost every continent. Tours by Locals are especially popular for cruise destinations in Europe.

      Tours by Locals Travel Style

      The Tours by Locals travel style is your travel style! Part of the benefit of having a private tour is the ability to have input over your experience.

      The guides are flexible and willing to help you see what you want to see.

      Why Choose a Tour with Tours by Locals?

      Spending a day with Tours by Locals is akin to meeting a friend or family member to show you around. Except instead of a potentially begrudging tour guide for the day, they’re actually excited to introduce you to their country.

      You will be in contact with you guide directly to setup your experience, all the way through to when you meet them in country. It’s an excellent way to get to know a place from a local point of view.

      Their guides usually speak numerous languages, and each guide has a dedicated profile page, ratings and reviews by travelers.
