Start with this tour, you'll get a good feeling for what to return and see! Toured Temple Bar, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Parliament building,... More

Really enjoyed our tour of the South side of Dublin with Peter. Great education, with lots of tips of things to see and do beyond the tour.

I did it with a guide, James in south part. He was absolutely professional, humorous and passionate. I could learn a lot about Dublin because he was complete dubliner. It was pretty nicer than i expected. However, it was quite long time(3 hours) even though a break time(around 15min) was given. So if you have a problem standing and walking... More

This free tour is symbolised by the Yellow Umbrella. A wonderful tour, informative and entertaining. Richie was outstanding; James not much lesser. Important thing is you felt you were with locals and friends. This experience was enhanced by the fact that there was no fee. You gave them a token of your appreciation according to your means. One regret -... More

I went to Dublin on my own and was advised to take the North side walking tour to learn some of the city's/ country's history. It was the best advice I had gotten. Not only was James a great tour guide on the official tour but he helped each of us navigate the city and recommended restaurants/pubs to attend. Not... More

We went on a tour of the South side yesterday and it was fantastic. Our guide, Richie, was extremely knowledgeable, witty and engaging. It really was 3 hours very well spent. I would thoroughly recommend everyone does the tour when visiting Dublin even if you have been before.. ThAnks Richie. And don't mention the Rugby again :)

It was an amazing and interesting tour, our guide made it so cool. You could noticed that he liked to show the city and he also can tell the stories about the places. He made a good job with our group and we all had a very good time there.

We had a great time on the South Side tour with James. He was knowledgeable, funny, and engaging. An excellent way to see the sights in Dublin and learn about the interesting history of Ireland. We had such good craic that we booked the Howth hiking tour the following day which was also amazing! THANK YOU for making our weekend... More

A big thanks from The Swedes goes to James for a very entertaining and informative journey through Dublin with all the history and fun little facts. The Cockles & Mussels group singing at Molly Malone was a good craic :).
