A history professor at a university for your own tour of the city? That’s pretty great... we had a huge group show up for th tour but he handled it well and people felt free to ask questions. Highly recommend.

One of the better tours I have ever been on. It was more like a college class on Irish history and culture using monuments and buildings as a backdrop.
