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.

    Jose was right on time and met us in our hotel lobby. Prior to our tour he communicated well, finding out what we wanted to see and any special items or constraints. Jose walked at a pace that was comfortable for us and answered questions as we went. Best of all, at the end of our tour, Jose was very flexible and adjusted the route to accomidate our wishes and gave us directions to help us for our next part of our day. Afterwards, Jose even followed up via Whatsapp to send us directions and maps and later still checked to see that we were able to complete our journey. It was very nice to have someone that we just met treat us like we were friends.

    Our party of four booked a full day tour of Powerscourt and Glendalough, including a drive through Sally Gap and terrific lunch at a beautiful Irish pub. John is a fountain of knowledge on a vast variety of subjects, ranging from horticulture to genealogy and of course the history of Ireland. Highly recommend John for both is intellect and driving skills around the Irish countryside.

    Cannot rate highly enough - Andre was an excellent guide, a wealth of knowledge, and made us feel we were walking around Dublin with a close friend.

    Ruairi is a gifted storyteller and guide and I'm so glad we hired him for our tour of Dublin. While the sites we were going to were interesting, his stories about them were incredible. There wasn't a second of the tour when we weren't laughing. If you want to be entertained and informed, Ruairi is the guide for you. Highly recommended....

    Ruairi is the best! He is so knowledgeable and we learned so much about Irish culture but we also laughed so much! He is an incredible storyteller. He tailored our tastings to our dietary preferences and requests (my teens really wanted to try Guinness) and we had an absolute blast! We learned a lot, laughed a lot, and ate and drank so many delicious things we never would have found on our own. He also offered so many helpful recommendations for the rest of our stay. I loved that he had his own authentic style; it really resonated with my kids. This was probably the most memorable and special tour we took during our time in Dublin; definitely book the food tour with Ruairi!

    We had an amazing private touring experience with Touristy! Our tour guide for Bru na Boinne was Noel was fabulous, lots of interaction and keeping in mind my husband Celt's passion. Another day we set up another tour to Cliff's of Moher and it was wonderful to be taken to the cliffs through a "back door" entrance with less tourist it was just superb. We also added a third tour to Belfast with Michael a stunning tour guide with lots of passion and knowledge about history plus experiencing the real Game of Thrones filmed location and wonderful scenery, which our teenage liked so much. We were extremely pleased with Touristy, highly recommended.

    As history junkies, my husband and I have booked many private tours in our travels and Eamon ranks at the top of our list! This three hour walking tour was a fascinating and trivia packed travel back to the earlier days of the famine, the beginning of the uprising, revolution, and struggle for Irish independence. Best experience of our two week stay in Ireland!

    We have a child under a year of age and were struggling to find any tours that would allow our whole family to attend. This private tour with Eamonn did not disappoint! He was very knowledgeable about Irish history and kept the 12-hour day super engaging and exciting. Additionally, he was accommodating to structuring the tour around what worked for us and what we were hoping to see.

    All in all, a great tour, an amazing tour guide, and well worth it!!

  • This was our best private tour in all of our British Isles trip! Eamonn gave us a great Dublin experience including visiting local establishments (food, drink, whisky tasting, live music) and touristy areas such as Blarney Castle. Eamonn is genuine, fun and is the best at what he does. Can't recommend him enough!

    Gerard made Ireland come to life for our family!!! We visited Killarney, Cobh, Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Cliffs of Mother/Burren, Connemara and Galway. Every stop was breathtakingly beautiful. Gerard carefully curated our trip based on what our family was interested in - site seeing/landscape, churches/castles, animals and FOOD!

    Gerard played Irish music and told us stories about Irish history and tradition making each stop even more meaningful. We even got to stop and meet some distant relatives along the way!

    We wouldn't change a thing about our trip and would not have had nearly the same experience without Gerard. Would recommend this tour to everyone!

    Enjoyed our driver, Richard O’Brien, giving us so much local information along with in-depth history of Ireland as we traveled along. He was so knowledgeable and had us laughing the whole way! The Cliffs were a majestic site! Would highly recommend this trip!

    Our tour with Carl of Dublin was informative, fascinating, personalized to our questions, and fun! I highly recommend. My husband and I (we're American) enjoyed finding out the history from a native's perspective. Carl obviously loves what he does and was passionate about the history of his country. We especially enjoyed finding out how to properly drink Guinness! No wonder we didn't like it before. The combination of beer and history was the perfect blend. After a couple hours on our feet exploring the city, we'd rest our feet at a pub where we tried Irish whiskey and then again Guinness. Our time on Dublin would have been wasted without this tour. Thanks Carl!
