It was very interesting....Sylvie Kleinman was a wonderful guide....maybe a little less history and more actual sights Dublin is a captivating city with a lot to see and do!

Nice quick tour of the Ireland. A lot of history so can be a bit overwhelming trying to retain all the info but great overall. Bryan was helpful and even walked us a bit after the tour to his suggested restaurant. Great service. Thanks!!!!

Outstanding guide, huge amount of information, anecdote and opinion. Very informative on the background to independence. Some people might find the length of the talk challenging combined with the continual stopping and starting but overall highly recommended. Only disappointment was that it was too popular!...More

I believe we booked a day in advance, but our guide said he had accepted extra people the day before on the tour; probably depends on the day of the week and the season as to how busy it is.

You can either book online OR walk on & pay our guide cash on the day. We prefer the former as it allows us to anticipate numbers & lay on additional guides if needed. Tommy Graham, owner
