Great historical tour of the city. Our guide Tommy was very knowledgeable taking us through the history of Dublin.
The tour was fabulous! Donal, was an awesome tour guide. Knowledgeable, engaging and handled a large group very well! I always recommend Viator as I think you do great tours!
This was without doubt one of the, if not the best tour I and #39;ve ever been on. Donal, our tour guide, was masterful. His oratory was clear, concise, learned and scholarly, he could easily make a great thespian, although never overly dramatic. Everyone in the group most certainly got a new insight, not only into Irish history, but world history. The added bonus, which enriched the experience enormously, was Donal and #39;s ability to convey the human failings and cost of those failings throughout the history of the Irish, woven in with the affect the outside world, particularly Britain, had on it. He eloquently quoted the great minds of the relevant times through prose and poetry. His description of the 1916 uprising brought me close to tears. Donal is a PHD not only academically but in human nature. Go, just go.
Grace was very informative and kept a good pace. Lots of noise on the streets of Dublin but she made sure everyone could hear her.
This is a wonderful tour and was a great way to start our vacation. We had little knowledge of Ireland's history before this tour. Alex was an awesome tour guide! Not only did we learn a lot about Ireland we had fun while learning. We would highly recommend this tour! It was supposed to be a 2 hour tour but lasted 3 hours.
We only had one day in Dublin so we went independently to the Old Library at Trinity College and saw it including the Book of Kells. Easy to do on your own. Then we took what turned out to be a three hour advertised as 2 hours walking tour this one where our guide was a graduate student of History at Trinity College. Absolutely Outstanding!!! Best way to see historic Dublin if you have limited time.
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and had a very deep voice so he was easy to hear and understand.
The tour guide was great - she had a well organized and informative tour. Was a great walking tour of Dublin!
Excellent tour. Donal, the guide, was both informative and humouous.
I highly recommend this as the first thing you do in Dublin. An extremely knowledgeable and engaging history grad student at Trinity College somehow managed to tell us a surprisingly in-depth history of Ireland from before the Vikings until the present day, along with the history of Dublin itself and many of the neighborhoods and buildings, while also taking us around and showing us the sites. Unlike many of the bus tours that are all gung-ho pro-Ireland, our tour guide gave us as objective a history as possible, not embellishing Ireland's stumbles out of a sense of patriotic duty. I walked away with a good sense of the city, and with a good sense of where Ireland is today and how it got there.
I also just love long scenic walks, so even if you don't care for history, this is an excellent walking tour.
Our guide Alex was brilliant! He brought to life the history of Ireland from the Vikings to the present day set in the context of Dublin's varied streetscape. This tour is a prerequisite for trying to understand the political and social complexity of modern Ireland.
We took this tour the day we arrived in Dublin. We took the late afternoon tour and it did a great job of getting loosened up after the plane ride. The introduction provided by the guide on the history and politics of Ireland served us over our two week trip. We often referred back to things that he had told us. It is a great introduction to both Ireland and Dublin.
WONDERFUL WALKING TOUR WITH ALL THE BACKGROUND INFORMATION PROVIDED.
One of my favourite tours of my holiday. The tour guide was full of so much information and added a light hearted approach to the whole walking tour which was great. Covered a lot of ground but didn't feel rushed through each site which was great. At the end he also provided us with recommended places to eat. Definitely a must do!
We learned so much history from our history graduate guide. His enthusiasm was wonderful. He had so much he wanted to share with that our scheduled 2 hour walk actually lasted closer to three hours. I would not hesitate to recommend the Dublin Historical Tour to anyone
Learn d a lot about the city and seen a lot I wounds have seen.
Our tour guide Rose. Was amazing. We all wished she was with us for our entire trip. That girl knew her history and city. Give her a faise

This was a great introduction to Dublin. Our tour guide Alex,currently finishing his Ph.d in History, was funny and very knowledgeable about the history and locations in Dublin. He could answer every question asked by the group. I would highly recommend this tour.
