      Safe and smart bike tour of Dublin
      Ben guided us through historic landmarks of Dublin which I was not aware of even though I tried to visit by myself. Ben's knowledge of Dublin is impressive. The guided bike tour was both enjoyable and safe. The safety guidance was clear and we cycled through the city in a flawless way. We were also able to update the route to suit our desired route and times. Thank you Ben!

      Great organisation, excellent route, interesting stories for a corporate cycle
      This was a fantastic tour. Ben arranged a bespoke tour for our EY Cycling Club, and everyone really enjoyed the tour and had great feedback. We were so happy to have had Ben to arrange the tour for us. He gave us all the safety details in advance. In addition to fantastic organisation where I didn't have to worry about anything, Ben is a great guide! He knows Dublin so well, and stays in good spirits (and keeps the group in good spirits) even when Dublin weather turns. Ben also took pictures of the group in front of the sites, and sent us a souvenir in the end. The tour included some great spots that even long time Dubliners were surprised by and will definitely visit again.

      Ben was awesome!!
      Ben was an amazing tour guide. We spent the day riding around Dublin. He was very knowledgeable about Dublin and Irish history. We picked his brain on many topic and had a great time engaging with him. He was accommodating to our biking abilities and made the day one of our best in Ireland. He also gave us good advice about hiking. We would definitely recommend this tour.

      Walking tour of Dublin
      We had a great afternoon with Ben as we wandered through the streets of Dublin. He was full of history and stories of his city - knowledge that he shared with all of us. He set a good pace for our varied group and gave us time to wander at The Book of Kells while being close by to answer any questions. His love of Dublin and Ireland shone out throughout the tour.

      An exceptional experience in Dublin with Ben
      The Dublin bridges tour was exceptional. Our guide Ben was very knowledgeable and made our time with him exploring the bridges in Dublin most enjoyable, educative, and fun. Highly recommended as a wonderful introduction to Dublin.

      Unique way to learn about Dublin’s history
      This was so much fun! Ben was so incredibly nice and informative. He knows so so much about the city and country, and was able to tailor what info he gave us based on what we wanted to learn more about. We saw beautiful sites and the bike ride was so much fun (and also there were lots of stops so not too vigorous). I wish we had had cash to tip the tour guide Ben because he was so friendly and helpful!

    We had very nice Hike with Ben.
    I was with a group of friends.
    The landscape and the colors were very nice this time of the year ( october). Ben picked us up at our Hotel in Dublin and went all together to Howth by bus. He was well prepared (first aid kit, trekking poles) for any inconvenience we could face. He told us about the different places and stories and at the end we got a small documentary file with a link with pictures and maps of the Hike.

    We met with Ben and off we went for our 8 mile hike through the beautiful Dublin Mountains on a unusually warm day in September (80 degrees) . Ben was very imformative on many subjects from the trail horticulture and tombs and Irelands people, economy and politics. He was even kind enough to sing us an old Irish song. We stopped for lunch before we headed back to Dublin City Center. It was a wonderful day!! Thank you Ben!

    We had an absolutely wonderful hike with Ben! The nature was beautiful, captivating, and very peaceful, with just the right amount of isolation from others. We loved the ancient tombs, as well as learning various things about Ireland from Ben, whether it be about the flora and fauna, or its millennium-old history.

    Ben did an outstanding job! If you love hiking and nature, as well as a guide that takes care of you in small groups, I strongly urge that you do this tour with him.

    If you're curious as to why he only has <10 reviews on TripAdvisor (for this tour specifically), it's because he gets bookings from everywhere, including his own website. Don't be put off by it - Ben's a veteran, and this tour is absolutely a hidden (but no so hidden after all) gem. Do yourself a favor, and book it now!

    This was one of the most fun experiences that I have had traveling solo. The hike was paced to the participants, the weather was fine, the tombs were fascinating and Ben was a great guide. It was fun, a learning experience in Irish history, geology and wildlife. Thank you so much.

    History. Culture. Nature. These were what I expected and got fulfilled. And much more. Ben is an excellent storyteller, rich with historical & political perspective. The hike itself was a good work out but not too challenging. In other words, a wonderful and enjoyable experience. I will do any other hike with Ben again when I am going to Dublin next time.
