Alan was the best tour guide from our entire month long trip around Europe, Germany and Ireland. This was by far one of my most favorite days from our trip. Alan had so much knowledge and told us many Irish stories and tales. Alan made the extra effort to find and stop at the best places so I could take pictures with my nice camera I brought. Alan is very funny and entertaining. Please book a tour with him because his tour will be one of the highlights of your trip. We not only had an amazing time with Alan but we saw some amazing sights along the way. We only wish we could have spent more time in Ireland with Alan touring us around! I had so many pictures from that day here are a few on my favorites but even the pictures dont do a justice!

I've been to Powerscourt, Glendalough and through the Wicklows three times before with other companies. This was far and away superior to every other trip. Jimmy was an expert, willing to entertain every question we had ranging from the mundane to the historically and politically significant. He was able to answer each with incredible depth, which truly enriched every minute of the experience. The scenery is undeniably beautiful in its own right, but it was the man driving the van that provided the real color. We were able to stop wherever we wanted to snap a few pics. Skip the big bus tours... this is the way to go! Logistically, every facet was completely seamless. We booked late the night before we wanted to go on the tour. After booking, I contacted the company via the TripAdvisor app to arrange the pick up time and got a response within minutes. Jimmy arrived early, met us in the hotel lobby, and we were on our way without a hiccup. (Thank you, Jimmy. You made our short visit to Ireland very special! Sláinte, Arthur)

I wish I had not booked this through Tripadvisor. The communication was terrible. I had many questions about the tour but was told very little until the last minute, and ended up only going on half of the tour because of what I discovered what it was about. The tour guide we ended up with was great, but I wish I had been told ahead of time what to expect and I would have booked it and planned it a lot differently had I been aware. Next time I will try to go directly through the tour company to book it.

Hello Travel_Beach_Teach, We are so sorry to hear about your experience with Touristy when booking via an external platform. We really pride ourselves on our service - whilst booking, touring and after the experience - so we'd really love to connect with you and discuss what happened in more detail as it's not very clear to us which booking is yours. Our Viator plastform shows that your tour was in June 2019 and we've only received your review today, February 2020, so we'd love to understand if we have missed something. Would you like to email us privately and we can discuss what happened. So that you know, our tours are all based around the individual needs of our guests (So every private tour is different) and our guides ensure on the day that they come up with a plan that best suits those needs. Any of our tour packages hosted on the Viator platform should have this explained clearly. The tours on Viator are worded as "example" tours of what you might expect and we do make note of important pre-bookings where we know you will need to prebook in advance. Regarding our communication, as a policy we aim to write back to our guests within 24 hours of their queries, especially once a booking has been made via the Tripadvisor or Viator platform. We have however been told that at times that our guests might have not received a response from us although we can clearly see the responses on our Viator dashboard. If this is an issue on the Viator platform we would love to have it resolved with Viator themselves. Viator is a huge platform and we strive to manage our end as best we can. We would prefer if our guests would book via our own website to ensure they can ring us or email us directly to discuss their upcoming trip. As you did mention; your tour guide on the day was very good and a one-star review on this platform can really hurt our ratings on Tripadvisor. In the tourism industry, we have a saying "you are only as good as your last review" and with that in mind, we would really love to the opportunity to try and improve guests' overall experience by rectifying our tour notes, or addressing the issue with our partners if it was a communication failure on their end. We hope to hear from you soon. Many kind regards, Bradley

We had a great tour with Alan. Powerscourt Gardens was beautiful. The gardens rival the gardens in Versailles! The views at Wicklow are fantastic as well. I would highly recommend this tour. Alan has a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour.
