Great guide. We picked up the tour at Trinity and enjoyed our guides insight on history, political influences and architectural features of the area. Well worth the time.

“Informative, fun and well worth the time.”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Our guide shared lots of history with us in an interesting and engaging way. A cool, dry morning well spent. While the your took longer than advertised, he never rushed us, even offered to extend it a bit.

“Genial”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We spent so little time in Dublin, I was upset that I didn't find any tours on the net. We got out, stopped at the tourism office and found this tour. It was great, nearly for 2 hours we walked and learned about Dublin and its history. Our guide was a lovely lady. We had a very good Sunday morning Dublin history.

“a great way to see the old Dublin”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

This is a walking tour around the old city, with stories and commentaries along the way. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable, with history and politics all combined to give a very informative overview of how and why Dublin became the Dublin of today.
