We love visiting ancient tombs so Newgrange and Knowth were on our list. We'd bought tickets on a small group tour but they cancelled two weeks ahead and I am glad we found Touristy and Alan. Alan's knowledge, as noted elsewhere, is immense and he is a terrific guide. We only had a 6-hour tour booked so we skipped Hill of Tara (would have been very muddy) and went to the Battle of Boyne, and Slane Castle -- but Newgrange/Knowth are the main event.

We just returned from Ireland and used Alan as our guide for the Newgrange Tour. As advertised, the tour was flexible, and after visiting Newgrange, we used our time to visit the Battle of the Boyne site and Slane Castle. The countryside was amazing, and Alan was just a great guide. Kept us on schedule, full of knowledge...an outstanding Irish historian, especially on the Rising. Would not hesitate to use him again for any type of Irish touring.

We were picked at our hotel in Malahide on time. Our guide, Alan, was helpful and informative and made sure that we saw as much as we could in the six hour tour without making it rushed. The attractions, themselves, are fascinating and well worth seeing. The area around Dublin is beautiful, a must see if you travel to the city. All that being said, the only negative of the tour was the vehicle we were traveling in was too small for four adults and a driver. It made it difficult to truly enjoy the experience. I would, however, recommend this tour, if asked.

We started the tour directly from the airport. It was very effective tour. Mr. Alan was not only the driver but also very experienced guide with so much history of Ireland. We simply loved it and are sure to return to this guide in the next visit in Ireland.

I recently booked a private day tour with Alan as a Father’s Day present for my Dad. We had an amazing day visiting New Grange and surrounding sites. Alan was so knowledgeable with Irish history both my dad and I learned so much. I highly recommend booking a tour with Alan, you won’t regret it!

I had booked advanced tickets to Newgrange before leaving the States which really made it a challenge to complete the full tour within our allotted time. Thanks to Alan's knowledge and experience we had a wonderful day! Alan recommended that we do both Knowth and Newgrange which turned out to be the best advice ever. We enjoyed Knowth as much, if not better, than Newgrange. We also visited the Battle of Boyne site, which was so impressive with Alan's knowledge and guidance. I would highly recommend booking directly with Alan and let him take care of your tickets and itinerary. Thanks Alan, you were "lovely".

We booked a private guide for a trip from Dublin, out to Newgrange and some other sites in our path. Our guide was Alan, who was OUTSTANDING. Alan's knowledge of the history of Ireland, Dublin and all the sites we saw along the way was remarkable.

Though he couldn't take us inside the Newgrange exhibit, he provided us all the history and stories leading up to our tour of the site. I felt very prepared to see the ancient exhibit and fully understand the magnitude of what Newgrange and the surrounding sites.

We added a few other interesting sites along the way and had an excellent lunch at Browne's Bar in Slane Castle while on our journey. All in all, a fantastic day.

The great reviews are correct! Spending the weekend with Alan was a true delight (we also did the Dublin city tour with him). He and all the folks at Touristy went above and beyond to ensure a joyous experience for all of us. By the end, we felt like old friends. Thank you so much!

We had a great time last week in Ireland and we were blessed to spend the day with Alan. His knowledge of the area along with his professionalism and hospitality really stood out. Alan welcomed us to Ireland and seemed genuinely concerned that we get the most of our day. We actually ended up randomly bumping into Alan and his wonderful wife a day after our tour in the town of Dingle and spent some time hanging out at a local pub...of course Alan knew where to go. I would highly recommend booking Alan during your time in Ireland! -karl
