  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Amanda was wonderfully knowledgeable, super engaging, and entertaining! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience Cork, local flavors, a bit of amazing history, and some unique pub delights.

    We visited and learned about the original 4-sided bell tower, local churches, museums, and schools.
    If you’re lucky you may even be blessed with a beautiful serenade.

    5-stars doesn’t come close! You definitely need to request Amanda!

    We had a great time learning the history of the Blarney castle & getting acquainted with the surroundings of the beautiful gardens!! Kissing the stone was defiantly the cherry on top of our tour💋

    We had a great time on this walk. Not only did we get the history but discovered that at one time Cork was the butter merchant to the world. Our guide was a former newspaperman in Cork and was a fountain of information all delivered with the perfect brogue, I would recommend this highly.

    This was our second Underground Donut Tour (one in NYC, this one in Cork IE) and it was great! The best part was the history tour that went along with the donuts. We were with friends later in the vacation who hadn't gone on the donut tour and when we walked around Cork pointing things out to them, it became a joke "did you learn that TOO on the donut tour?" By the end they had decided they would do a donut tour next time they travel somewhere new. The pastries were excellent, not all were donuts but were of very high quality and we wished we had time to revisit some of them later in our trip. We'll definitely do an Underground Donut tour again. Although pricey, it is worth it in quantity of donuts and the history tour two-fer.

    Dara gave us such an incredible tour this past August and really shows not only his love for history, but also his love for Cork City. I also loved the inclusivity he showed throughout the tour through the people he spoke to, and about. One most interesting stories that he highlighted the women of Cork city that led the revolution there and how he emphasized their successes and impact on the city’s history. Another aspect about Dara that was very special was how he took the time to talk to each of us as well and get to know us and our story while he told his.

    We’ve done similar self guided tours before and chose this one for our first trip to Cork.

    Found them a really good way to see a city at your own pace - we took tea breaks and a spot of lunch too. You just carry on at the last stop.

    Found it really informative, the stops well spaced out and directions helpful and spot on.

    Price is very competitive for a trip in a city.

    We had a great day trip visiting the 3 castles. Alec was a great guide giving us bits of history and telling stories along the way. He recommended nice shops and good places to eat. I enjoyed this tour a great deal!

    During a recent trip to France we spent one day in Chartres. It was probably the best day of the trip. We had dinner in the Tomate&Piment restaurant
    on Avenue Jehan de Beauce in the city centre. Brilliant experience. Louis-Martin greeted us and even though they were busy and we did not have a reservation, he accommodated us at the upper level. Great food, casual but excellent dining. Great buzz about the place. Louis-Martin was a fabulous host. I cannot recommend the place highly enough and I would love to call in there again if I ever find myself in Chartres. You won't do better in Chartres!

    App doesn’t work well. Installed it before I arrived and tried to use it. It would stop and then I’d have to start over. After about 30 minutes of frustration, I downloaded the audio files, listened to them over a sandwich and made my own tour. The narrator’s voice (what little I heard) was clear and understandable. The directions to each stop were not helpful hence making my own tour.
