The tour was excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. The first day we arrived we did a tour of Kilmainham Gaol, the Dublin Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College tied together so much of what we learned at the Gaol to the city as we walked around. So glad we did the tours in this sequence.
Our guide was knowledgeable of his topic and willingly answered questions from the group. We enjoyed the 2 hour walking tour.
This was my very first trip to Dublin and I was very curious to learn anything. This Historical Walking Tour gave me the first glimpse of the history and culture of Ireland, and of course of Dublin in particular. Two hours went by so fast, I wish it was a whole-day tour. I look forward to returning and joining the tour again to learn more about the amazing history and culture of Ireland. Many thanks to Tommy Graham, a great guide!
Very interesting . I do recommend this tour and guide . Barbara from Poland
We are Irish and we really enjoyed the tour, our tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot from him. We had American friends with us and they really loved the tour also. I would recommend that anyone visiting Dublin should do this tour.
Excellent tour and tour guide. We would highly recommend it.
Very informative, tour guide was knowledgeable, and easy to understand.
The guide was friendly and appeared knowledgeable. We took the tour with our two teenage children 15 and 17. We found the historical content somewhat disjointed and rather too rambling to maintain the children's attention. Starting the tour at the Castle where the original Dublin settlement was founded would have made more sense from a chronological point of view. We left about two thirds of the way around the tour when the cold weather and lack of interest rather took over.
Absolutely fantastic! I wouldn't recommend it if you're traveling with kids, but for adults it's a great way to learn about historic Dublin.
It was an excellent tour, very informative and very entertaining. A good thing to do when you first arrive in Dublin to get your bearings and decide what to visit whilst you are there.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Dublin and its history. And, he communicated that information in a captivating manner. I didn't want the tour to end!
Don't debate, just go on this. A group of about twenty or so guides, mostly post grad students take it in turns to walk you through the history of Dublin with some enchanting tales. Like, why the Bank of Ireland building (formerly the Irish Parliament) has no windows - to avoid a tax imposed on windows. That was the origin of the phrase "daylight robbery" probably, and maybe was the only "paneless" tax in history (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). Our guide, the day we went, was the delightful and knowledgeable Donal Fallon. If you have the good fortune to have him as a guide, make sure to congratulate him on St Pats winning the league in 2013, after 14 years of utter futility. Emphasize the futility bit, he'll take it in good stride. Highly recommended tour!
Excellent walking tour by a very knowledgeable guide!
The walking tour around Dublin was very interesting and our guide was very informative. I would recommend this to anyone looking to know more about the history of Dublin .
We actually left this tour at the 2nd stop..our guide was definitely a student of history and we felt like we were in a fairly dull lecture. Nice young man but really in love with the sound of his own voice.
