“Very good tour, not as light hearted as other Sandeman's”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

The tour covered a lot of ground and was well thought out and informative. The only warning I will give is that it is not as light hearted as other Sandeman's tours I have been on. This is mainly a result of the source material. The Irish have gone through some tough times. With that being said, I can definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn about the history/formation of modern Ireland. Also, don't forget to tip, as if you didn't know they make all their money on tips and have to pay the company to do the tours.

“Robbie the tour guide was excellent”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Great tour would recommend to anyone visiitng Dublin. Very informative but not too tiring although it lasted more than three hours.

Booked on line but it did not seem to matter it gave no preference over those who just turned up.

The only negative was that although the tour was to commence at 11.00am it did not set off until nearly 11.30am. Most people were waiting from around 10.45 a bit long to stand around waiting. Great little cafe next to departure - an Americano for 2 euros - a good price for Dublin.

We walked through the main attractions in Dublin guided by an Irish guy who showed a lot of good humour, historical knowledge and passion for his job: Rob. It was really great!

“The very best way to start your trip!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

The tour was absolutely brilliant - informative, witty, engaging and genuinely interesting. In 3 and a half hours we not only managed to get a glimpse of almost all the main attractions of the city, but we also got a detailed history of each one. It's a great way to start the trip as it really gives you a taste of what the city has to offer. The guide was fantastic - charismatic, witty and unbelievably knowledgeable. It was clear that all the guides had a real passion for the city. A great experience - one I would thoroughly recommend!

“Engaging and Entertaining”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Our Tour was absolutely amazing! Our guides shared a laugh with and at us (playing our ridiculous songs on our tin whistles) then went on to educate us with an in depth but easy to comprehend tour of so many fantastic sites around Dublin. It really was an excellent way to spend the day! 3.5 hours felt like 1! Fantastic work guys! Will be sure to take more of your tours on my travels and recommend you to everyone!
