We had an amazing private touring experience with Touristy! Our tour guide for Bru na Boinne was Noel was fabulous, lots of interaction and keeping in mind my husband Celt's passion. Another day we set up another tour to Cliff's of Moher and it was wonderful to be taken to the cliffs through a "back door" entrance with less tourist it was just superb. We also added a third tour to Belfast with Michael a stunning tour guide with lots of passion and knowledge about history plus experiencing the real Game of Thrones filmed location and wonderful scenery, which our teenage liked so much. We were extremely pleased with Touristy, highly recommended.

Hi, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so happy to hear you had an amazing time with Noel and our other guide Michael in Belfast. They are two of the best and we were happy that we were able to match Michael with you as he's a real fan of the Game of Thrones. It's great to hear Noel was able to focus on the Celt's history to ensure your husband's interests were catered for. Thanks again for your high recommendation. It really means a lot.

This company and their employees can’t be topped! Noel our driver was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the area and so accommodating about what we would like to see. Noel also gave us two extra experiences—the opportunity to meet a former mayor of the area and tour his genuine thatched cottage, and tour an ancient monastery built around the 1500s as well. The Private tour is definitely the way to go. Most private tours are limited to four people, but we had five, so Bradley at Toutisty Ireland was able to provide a driver and a van to make this tour possible. They want to give you the best experience possible, and Newgrange is not to be missed! Be sure and contact Bradley at Touristy Ireland and DO ask for Noel. This had to be our favorite day out during our trip to Ireland. You won’t be disappointed! Kathryn and Lee Maes

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 recently booked a private day tour with Alan as a Father’s Day present for my Dad. We had an amazing day visiting New Grange and surrounding sites. Alan was so knowledgeable with Irish history both my dad and I learned so much. I highly recommend booking a tour with Alan, you won’t regret it!

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".

Newgrange ran 1 hour behind so driver got mad and canceled the rest of the tour at 12:30. It was only a taxi cab for $450. And we saw one place. For that amount of money we were disappointed.

Hi Janice, We are so disappointed to hear you had a bad experience on tour with us. I'd just like to point out in our reply that we had messaged you in advance asking you to notify us of the entrance time on your Newgrange ticket and I believe you informed us of your entry time incorrectly. Our tour guides are with you approx 6 hours in duration and because of this, we try to ensure we collect you one hour in advance of your Newgrange entrance. This gives adequate time to meet and greet you, and drive to Newgrange (whilst your guide gives you some history of Ireland) so that you arrive on time. After your Newgrange experience, we continue our tour of the Boyne valley which would include the Hill of Tara and other places of interest that our guides recommend. We talked with your guide who informed us that you realised your entrance time was incorrect by an hour when you arrived at Newgrange. Some of our guides do drive taxis and this is mentioned in our tour information. There are some advantages to using a taxi while driving in Dublin. They can use the bus lanes (avoiding traffic) and many passionate and qualified tour guides would drive a taxi in our off-season in Ireland. For legal reasons, anyone driving the public for a service in Ireland must hold an SPSV license and these licenses are obtained by chauffeurs and taxi drivers. Finally after speaking to your guide he was quite surprised to hear about receiving a 1-star review as he had no idea at the time you were disappointed and that he had even received a lovely tip. Our records show that he collected you at 8 am and he was instructed to collect you at 1:30 pm after you entered Newgrange at 9am. We invite you to email us directly if this is not the case and we can take further action, Janice. Again we're so sorry you felt disappointed with your day while out on tour with us. We do strive to constantly improve our service so we'll take all of this information into consideration and possibly request screenshots from our guests going forward to ensure we avoid this happening again. Kind regards, Bradley
