We really enjoyed our tour. Bartle made it interesting and funny from start to finish. Dublin is beautiful and with his guidance we learned things we would have not noticed on our own or even maybe with another guide. We will certainly recommend him.

Thanks for the question and thanks for the help you guys! It'll soon be possible for you to book our tours through TripAdvisor but until then you should google 'Dublin Tour Guide', you'll find our website.
