This is an excellent tour to do if you are new to Dublin. Our guide did an excellent job maneuvering our group and providing some historical highlights of the sites we visited. I wish that the tour included the Book of Kells however but it had gone beyond the allocated time already. St. Patrick's was very interesting as well as the tour of Trinity College. We really enjoyed getting to know the city center and our guide provided excellent commentary along the way. Many thanks - it was wonderful!

Our tour guide Brian skillfully shepherded his group from the chaotic area in front of Trinity College, through the streets of Dublin, down to the lovely park in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral. He stopped several times along the route to point out sights, especially those with historical or architectural significance. Most of the tour was spent inside St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Brian provided extensive commentary on the many things to see within the church. Finally, he led us a few blocks down the street to the historic Dublin Castle. Brian was incredibly enthusiastic about the history of Dublin and of Ireland, talking about Vikings and Normans and Scottish lords, not to mention the Irish independence movement. In fact, he extended the time of the tour by at least 45 minutes. All in all, an excellent excursion.

The entire group loved this guide sorry, forgotten name. He was professional, witty, funny, excessively knowledgeable with very entertaining stories. On some tours you may feel they are dragging out but this tour was entertaining and so informative history wise, we didn't notice the hours slipping by. Guide was exceptionally passionate, encouraged questions and gave us all a challenge to ask a question they did not know the answer to, there was only 1 question from our group of 6 and trust us, there were many questions asked to which the guy knew the answers to, quite amazing really i.e. the guides knowledge and how they went about telling the historical stories. Don't miss this tour, thoroughly enjoyable.

Our Tour guide was Brian and he was perfect. He was Punctual and moved along at our pace. The tour was a perfect introduction to Dublin on our first day in town. We were also fortunate to be the only couple on the tour. This did not appear to dissuade our tour guide from doing his best.

Throughout almost every step of the tour, Brian volunteered information in large qty's for the tours main attractions down to tid-bits on architecture, local shops, and even the history of the post boxes! We were very tired having arrived that morning, but could not have pictured a better way to kick off our trip.

Our tour guide was Brian. By a stroke of pure luck, my wife and I were the only ones on the tour that day. We started off on the grounds of Trinity College, Dublin where he told us about the history of the college and some interesting stories regarding it's history. We took a leisurely walk over to St. Patrick's Cathedral on the way he gave us a running history of everything we passed and how it fit in to the larger story of a very rich Irish history. We even made a few unscheduled stops along the way so that he could show us interesting things about the area that were not officially on the tour. He was very knowledgeable about the history of St. Pat's, gave us plenty of time on our own to take pictures and explore on our own. My wife had to leave half way through the tour of St. Pat's so, incredibly, I had Brian all to myself for the rest of the afternoon at Dublin Castle. He told me the history of Ireland's multiple invasions by Viking's, Celts, etc. He told me how Dublin got its name that Bram Stoker was a Dubliner I had no idea!. He was great. I highly recommend this tour you will have an amazing time. I am looking forward to coming back to Dublin I've decided it's my new favorite city in Europe. The food was incredible Brian made some great recommendations for restaurants we tried them all, the people are incredibly nice and I swear every one has kissed the Blarney Stone because they are all friendly and garrulous. Book this tour you'll love it.
