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.

John is very knowledgeable and in two hours you get oriented in the town and learn more than you would ever be able ti learn on your own. Even my teen loved it. John tells stories that stick with you. Ask him to go up the tower.

The walk around Kilkenny was amazing as it included many spots you would generally just walk by. Great stories told about sites visited. John was a well known local.

The tour was grand! John knows so much about the city and its history. Especially his little anecdotes made the tour fun and interesting at the same time. Thanks again for a fantastic experience!

We had a wonderful time with John, he is so friendly and knowledgeable. I live quite close to Kilkenny and have visited many times but this walk opened my eyes to so many things I didn’t know about this beautiful city. My 16 year old niece and I absolutely loved it.
I would highly recommend. And to make the experience so much sweeter, it is so reasonable priced. A must for anyone visiting Kilkenny. We loved it.

Our family very much enjoyed John’s tour highlighting the history and culture of Kilkenny! We learned so many interesting stories about the city. He was kind and gracious to also show our daughter murals dedicated to her favorite book, Wolfwalkers. We highly recommend his tour if you’re looking to learn more about beautiful Kilkenny.

Hi Alison, It was a pleasure to show you around Kilkenny today. It was excellent to have the book, as it changed the whole experience. We were able to see locations that the film was based on, and not forgetting the Lord Protector himself. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your stay in Ireland, and if you would like any Wolfwalker help in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind regards John Britton

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour- Our guide John was highly knowledgeable and engaging. We’re from Ireland, but we soon realised that there is so much about Kilkenny which we didn’t know, it was such an interesting tour and the two hours flew by.
Highly recommend! Thank you John.

Our tour guide, John, was full of information and had a great sense of humor. We saw so much of the city, learned about hurling, saw beautiful cathedrals, inside as well, saw the oldest pub, and, of course, the castle. Enjoyed it very much. Definitely worth the cost!

This was a great tour. John was very knowledgeable and was flexible enough to answer all my questions! The sites we visited and the history John shared made this our best stop of our trip to Ireland. If you are lucky enough to have John as a guide you are quite a fortunate visitor. Please take this tour. You will not be disappointed.

Hi Steven, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this great review. I do feel the Bruce Springsteen concert will top the tour, and I'm OK with that. I'm listening to it right now in my garden as I type, it sounds amazing. Hopefully you got to soak up the preconcert atmosphere around town, and that you enjoyed the concert. Wishing you a fab end to your time in Ireland. Kind regards John
