        Incredible experience!
        Noel did an amazing job of showing us around. We visited close to a holiday, which meant that a number of things were closed. Noel went out of his way to make sure we got to see as much as possible.

        A day in Dublin with Noel
        Our guide Noel went out of his way to tailor our trip to Dublin with our requests, plus his own input and recommendations, which resulted in a magical day exploring the history and beauty of this region. Couldn’t be more pleased.

        Customized full day tour with Noel
        Noel was our tour guide and he was very easy to understand and talk to. He was full of so much knowledge and went above and beyond helping to make our day special. We got some great pictures and he tailored the day towards our interest. I would highly recommend that you ask for Noel as your tour guide in Dublin!

        Fun, custom tour of Dublin
        Brian was our guide for this super fun tour of Dublin by car…we highly recommend! Brian put together a custom tour based on our conversation…Dublin Bay, incredible views of Guinness Lake, lunch at Johnny Fox’s pub. Brian added his knowledgeable commentary from Dublin history and recent events. We were able to see what we wanted to see…so each tour can be unique! An added advantage, as a taxi driver he knows every inch of Dublin, and can drive in the special lane for buses and taxis!

        We spent the most enjoyable day with Noel. He was informative, flexible and quite humorous! He had excellently recommendations and we thoroughly ghly enjoyed our day. We ran into him the next day while he was touring with other people and he still took the time to greet us like we were old friends. We highly recommend Noel!

        Excellent day trip to see the beauty of Ireland
        I was fortunate to book a day trip with my guide (Noel) on short notice while traveling through Ireland. Noel was exceedingly knowledgable about the landscape and history of the region, and was a very safe driver when driving between the various sites. I would strongly recommend this day trip to anyone wishing to see these beautiful sights!

        Best tour guide from our entire trip
        Alan was the best tour guide from our entire month long trip around Europe, Germany and Ireland. This was by far one of my most favorite days from our trip. Alan had so much knowledge and told us many Irish stories and tales. Alan made the extra effort to find and stop at the best places so I could take pictures with my nice camera I brought. Alan is very funny and entertaining. Please book a tour with him because his tour will be one of the highlights of your trip. We not only had an amazing time with Alan but we saw some amazing sights along the way. We only wish we could have spent more time in Ireland with Alan touring us around! I had so many pictures from that day here are a few on my favorites but even the pictures dont do a justice!

        Don't Hesitate: Worth Every Euro!
        I've been to Powerscourt, Glendalough and through the Wicklows three times before with other companies. This was far and away superior to every other trip. Jimmy was an expert, willing to entertain every question we had ranging from the mundane to the historically and politically significant. He was able to answer each with incredible depth, which truly enriched every minute of the experience. The scenery is undeniably beautiful in its own right, but it was the man driving the van that provided the real color. We were able to stop wherever we wanted to snap a few pics. Skip the big bus tours... this is the way to go! Logistically, every facet was completely seamless. We booked late the night before we wanted to go on the tour. After booking, I contacted the company via the TripAdvisor app to arrange the pick up time and got a response within minutes. Jimmy arrived early, met us in the hotel lobby, and we were on our way without a hiccup. (Thank you, Jimmy. You made our short visit to Ireland very special! Sláinte, Arthur)

        terrible communication
        I wish I had not booked this through Tripadvisor. The communication was terrible. I had many questions about the tour but was told very little until the last minute, and ended up only going on half of the tour because of what I discovered what it was about. The tour guide we ended up with was great, but I wish I had been told ahead of time what to expect and I would have booked it and planned it a lot differently had I been aware. Next time I will try to go directly through the tour company to book it.

        Great tour - highly recommend
        We had a great tour with Alan. Powerscourt Gardens was beautiful. The gardens rival the gardens in Versailles! The views at Wicklow are fantastic as well. I would highly recommend this tour. Alan has a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour.

        Hooray for Alan and Touristy!
        What's so wonderful about Alan is that he finds the right balance between his vast knowledge as a tour guide and our preferences as guests. We felt very taken care of all weekend. We also hired Alan for additional private transport and he looked after us as if we were family. Endless gratitude!

        Alan was very knowledgeable and we appreciated the options he gave us as we had a limited amount of time. He loves his country and shared so many interesting facts about the history. We would highly recommend this tour company and will book with them again when we return!

        Dublin Tour Highlights
        Our guide, Alan, was very attentive to our needs as a group. He was well informed of the lovely city of Dublin and we were able to see many of its attractions. We were able to get early entrance to the popular visits. He was always able to inform us of the significant historic events in Dublin. He was very accommodating to our personal needs which was deeply appreciated.

      Words cannot express the overwhelming feelings that rushed through me during this experience! And what added to this experience was the tour guide who made sure she prepared me and even made sure I has a croissant awaiting me. Miriam was chipper, knowledgeable, friendly, and very sweet. She got out to walk with me in the rain 🌧️ up the hill of slane without a blink of an eye. She was down to earth and it’s so great to see this in people today. Nothing flashy just sincerity.

      Thanks to Miriam and your tour group for showing me a memorable day!!!!

      Fabulous tour with Miriam. A large part of our trip to Ireland this time was making it to see New Grange. From the instructions on when to get our tickets (well in advance) to our hotel pickup, history and Q/A and extra sights along the way - this tour was impeccable. Many thanks for helping us check off this bucket list item in truly grand style.

      We love visiting ancient tombs so Newgrange and Knowth were on our list. We'd bought tickets on a small group tour but they cancelled two weeks ahead and I am glad we found Touristy and Alan. Alan's knowledge, as noted elsewhere, is immense and he is a terrific guide. We only had a 6-hour tour booked so we skipped Hill of Tara (would have been very muddy) and went to the Battle of Boyne, and Slane Castle -- but Newgrange/Knowth are the main event.

      We just returned from Ireland and used Alan as our guide for the Newgrange Tour. As advertised, the tour was flexible, and after visiting Newgrange, we used our time to visit the Battle of the Boyne site and Slane Castle. The countryside was amazing, and Alan was just a great guide. Kept us on schedule, full of knowledge...an outstanding Irish historian, especially on the Rising. Would not hesitate to use him again for any type of Irish touring.

      We were picked at our hotel in Malahide on time. Our guide, Alan, was helpful and informative and made sure that we saw as much as we could in the six hour tour without making it rushed. The attractions, themselves, are fascinating and well worth seeing. The area around Dublin is beautiful, a must see if you travel to the city. All that being said, the only negative of the tour was the vehicle we were traveling in was too small for four adults and a driver. It made it difficult to truly enjoy the experience. I would, however, recommend this tour, if asked.

      We started the tour directly from the airport. It was very effective tour. Mr. Alan was not only the driver but also very experienced guide with so much history of Ireland. We simply loved it and are sure to return to this guide in the next visit in Ireland.

      I had booked advanced tickets to Newgrange before leaving the States which really made it a challenge to complete the full tour within our allotted time. Thanks to Alan's knowledge and experience we had a wonderful day! Alan recommended that we do both Knowth and Newgrange which turned out to be the best advice ever. We enjoyed Knowth as much, if not better, than Newgrange. We also visited the Battle of Boyne site, which was so impressive with Alan's knowledge and guidance. I would highly recommend booking directly with Alan and let him take care of your tickets and itinerary. Thanks Alan, you were "lovely".
