Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ben met us in Dublin and took us on a great hike around Howth. Howth is a beautiful seaside town. Ben was a very knowledgable and friendly guide. I would highly recommend him.

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!

Luckily had a sunny day and booked a bicycle tour with Ben which provided a great way to see the city of Dublin. Ben catered the tour skipping sights I had already seen to spend more time providing historical stories at sites around the city. Ben provided clear guidance while cycling and I always felt safe and after the tour he followed up with a list of recommended sites and places to eat in Dublin and the other areas where I will be traveling around Ireland. Highly recommend!

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!

Husband and I are fairly active and this hike was very manageable. Approximately 8 miles. Ben's communication leading up to the hike was excellent - we knew exactly what to bring and what to expect. He also pointed out interesting facts about the vegetation and sites along the way. We highly recommend taking this excursion!

I was on my own the day Ben took me out and about to the some of the lesser-known sights of outer Dublin. Ben was extremely knowledgeable about where we went and all the sights we encountered. As I am not an experienced bike-rider, he was also very patient and gave me a lot of confidence whilst guiding me around the city. It was a lovely day out, even though the rain did its best to spoil the morning. A really great way to spend a day, getting fresh air and a different perspective on Dublin. Thanks again to Ben for putting it all together. I would definitely recommend to those who are in Dublin for a limited time and/or want to spend some time outdoors.

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!

My sons and I did a hike with Ben in Howth on the morning 8/2/23. we are not expert hikers at all, and it was still an awesome and incredible experience for all of us. The weather was both windy and rainy, but we still had a fantastic time. Ben was well prepared and on time. Sights and trails were unique and enjoyable. His pace and knowledge of the area was excellent. Great communication both prior to and after the hike. I would recommend Ben and his company to anyone looking for a great hiking experience while in Dublin!
