This was so much more than we expected. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Book if Kells. She gave us lots of information about its creation and history. She also gave us a walking tour of the city of Dublin including lots of info on the castle.

The early access tour of Book of Kells, Trinity College and Dublin Castle was well worth the price! The line for the Book of Kells question up early and you can end up waiting quite a while to get in. The rest of the tour was great as well. A nice history of Dublin and the Dublin Castle.

Our tour with Neil from LetzGo was wonderful! He was interesting and kept everyone engaged with his tales. There was a person in a wheelchair on the tour Neil very kindly made sure that she was able to participate in all the activities.

What a privilege to view the extraordinary Book of Kells before all the crowds. Brian, was an excellent tour guide and this was an excellent way to learn more about Dublin as we walked the city streets.

Our tour with Neil McCourt of LetzGo was like seeing the best of the city with your best friend - only he was Irish and a storyteller with a great sense of humor. Neil lead us through history and kept us entertained for well more time than we deserved. And he gave us recommendations for things and eats to do after. We will spend a whole day with him if we get back to Dublin. Thanks again for a fabulous tour.

The early access tour of the Book of Kells, Trinity College, and Dublin Castle is an exceptional value. Our tour guide, Neil McCourt, combined knowledge, wit, and a genuine feel for the group to keep us all enthralled and entertained. We dodged the crowds and had plenty of time to ask questions. He even recommended a great place for lunch afterwards (O’Neill’s).
Well worth it!
