Excellent Over 2 hours of very informative and humourous by a Guide who was confident of his subject .Highly recommended
Knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide that had prepared a great tour but was also prepared to answer any and all questions that arose. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a light and fun tour of Trinity College and its surrounding area.
It was excellent. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and she gave us immense insight about the history of Dublin. We covered a lot of ground and she kept it all very interesting and entertaining. Well worth doing!
Peter our guide was simply wonderful. Through him we learned so much about the history of Ireland, of Dublin, of the wonderful people living there. This tour is a great way to start your visit in Ireland..in fact I would say it is a must!
This was a 2 1/2 hour tour conducted by Peter, who graduated Trinity with a degree in history. It was an excellent and very educational and enjoyable tour. A good hike around Dublin. One of the highlights in our six day trip to Ireland. I highly recommend the tour. William S.
This was the highlight of our Dublin experience. The guide was fantastic and enthused us to make further visits. please keep us updated on proposed tours North of the Liffey.
Two hours flew by. We had a GREAT guide that mede everything interesting. We covered a lot of ground at a quick pace. We went back to some of the places we discovered on this tour for a more in depth visit.
Do this first thing and you will know where you want to go back to during the rest of your stay in Dublin.
This did not include the Book of Kells but that is worth seeing as well. The line can get long but if you don't like to wait in line, check back a couple of times during the day and you might find the line is all but gone. It fluctuates all day I am told. The line is short in the building and what you see out the door is pretty much all of it. Besides the Book itself, the Long Room upstairs is quite a sight to see.
Our guide was very informative and very humorous !!! Well worth doing and I highly recommend this tour!
Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable and genuinely engaging. She dealt well with questions and used humour and tact to describe Dublins historic relationship with England. I can thoroughly reccomend this tour.
Great walking tour! Our guide, Donal, was excellent and informative.
Great very informative on history of Dublin. Good tour to get bearings of Dublin.
Extremely knowledgeable guide. great way to get a sense of the city and its history
Wonderful tour - Sylvia was a very informative guide and it was a great introduction to Dublin and history of the city.
Connor was prompt, personable, and very well-prepared. I learned more about the history of the Irish Republic in two hours than I had in my previous four decades on this planet put together. I also felt as if I got a great orientation to Dublin City Centre. And I especially appreciated Connor's anecdotes and opinions these made the tour so much more than just a dry recitation of facts.
I cannot remember our guide's name but he was excellent. I don't think it could have been any better! The tour took off in front of Trinity College at about 11:00 on I believe the 7th of July. Excellent and highly recommended:-
Connor, our personable, entertaining guide, was a PhD history professor from the University of Galway - it just can't get any better than that! He was fabulous. We learned so much about Irish history to better understand the Ireland of today. The walking tour takes you to alleyways and places you might not find on your own, much less know about their history in this very old country. It was a delightful and well-spent afternoon in Dublin.
This was a great introduction to Dublin. Our guide was knowledgeable and hilarious. Even my jet-lagged 9-year-old though it was great.
I did this tour 2 years ago with my daughter and went again with my spouse. I had the same guide Chris both times. The tour was completely different in a good way. He is very entertaining and knowledgeable. In two or more hours you walk a little bit of the city and feel like you have learned a little bit of the city's history. I would put this tour at the top of anyone's list of things to do in Dublin.
The tour was fabulous. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable. We saw interesting parts of Dublin. I would highly recommend this tour!
