Traveling with teens is tough so we needed fun and history .Chose Garvan - bit pricey for the four of us but we wanted special time and no one else on tour . Well worth it .
Three hour tour of Dublin with a guy who majored in Celtic Studies and Philosophy - Double Score ! Kids stayed awake and loved him and we got our history fix.
Went to cool pubs ( only americans in it ! ) and down some creepy streets noted for ghosts. Nice potpourri of Dublin .

Look no further - you have found the perfect guide for Dublin with Garvan! He knowledge of Irish history and culture is incredible. What's truly unique about Garvan is his ability to go beyond the facts and dates and connect you to the emotional fabric of the country as you experience different things throughout the day. He was very responsive to any requests that we had and such a fun person to spend time with. A true highlight of our trip to Ireland was the tour with Garvan!

We traveled from out of the country and took a tour with Garvin, where we had the best time! Garvin is personable, pleasant, and extremely knowledgable on his history of Ireland.
