Derek, our guide, took us in a lengthy and fascinating tour of Dublin.Trinity College, Molly Malone statue, and St.Stephen’s Green we’re the highlights. He offered us a great deal of information about Dublin’s history. Love the fact that it was private.

David was an amazing tour guide. He was on time, engaged, very friendly, energetic, and genuinely loves Dublin. He squeezed in as many sights and knowledge as he could in the walking timeframe allowed. While also giving us recommendations along the way for restaurants and attractions to dive deeper into while here. If you want a kick start to you visit in Dublin we definitely recommend this tour and ask for David if you can. Thank you very much, Greg n Donna.

Great to do this tour first
Christie_M, May 2022
Short tour that helps orient you to Dublin’s downtown area. Ben is incredibly accommodating! Thank you, Ben! Great information! Had enough sense of the area to navigate on our own the next day. Ben takes pictures for you and shares along with recommendations for places to see and eat after the trip!
Great way to start your Ireland vacation.
Michael_H, May 2022
Ben was a great guide. Extremely friendly and willing to answer any question you might have. He gives you a nice cheat sheet to the city for food and drink, landmarks, etc. Definitely a great way to start your trip to Dublin.
Excellent Guide and Introduction to Dublin

Marius was knowledgeable and passionate about the history and current events in Ireland. He was an outstanding guide and this was a perfect way to get an introduction to Dublin on our first day in the city. Thank you!
Fantastic History Tour
Edith_G, Dec 2021
The walking tour through the city hit most of the major historical areas in a compact history lesson. I loved Trinity College as we walked the campus and peaked into the halls. A tour worth checking out for a broad overview to get your bearings of the town.
Worth every penny
Kelly_B, Nov 2021
Excellent tour. Excellent tour guide with lots of knowledge. Private tours are perfect so you can ask as many questions (to show your ignorance and naïveté!) as you like.
Fantastic trip to Dublin. Great Host for the walkabout. Plenty of interesting info to learn about.
