Latest reviews from our guests

    Dominic spent 4 hours walking through Dublin with us, sharing stories from Viking times to the Troubles. We visited all must-see sites and a couple of hidden gems including Bewley’s café where we sampled original Irish coffee, visited Trinity College and Christ church.

    The city tour with Dom Pio was very entertaining. His excellent knowledge and his humorous way of conveying it to customers made the tour an experience. Especially since he responded to the wishes of his guests and took them into account during the tour. Gladly again and again!!!

    Jose Luis was wonderful! I specifically requested a literary tour of Dublin and he was able to provide that beautifully. We learned about William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, going to their statues, hang-outs (like Sweney's!), museum exhibitions and galleries. He is knowledgeable, kind and wonderful- an absolutely amazing tour!!

    We booked Patrick Johnson for a 3 hour walking tour of the city. It was our first day and we wanted an orientation of the city. Patrick delivered that and more. It was a nice combination of history, storytelling, and recommendations of pubs, restaurants, and things to do. He even had recommendations for things to do outside of Dublin in other cities we were visiting. Great way to start our trip.
