Our guide James was fantastic! The way he took a keen interest in every member of the group, his ability to speak several languages, and of course his wealth of knowledge of the local area made this tour fabulous from start to finish. Our groups ages ranged from 18 to 61 and we all loved it! The bikes were a little bit in need of some attention but it just kinda added to the experience! Loved it and would highly recommend! Thank you James!

Nice, clean coach was on site when advertised. Driver/guide was polite, knowledgeable and fun. Gave good advice for optimal viewing experience. Good value and would have booked additional trips if time had permitted.

Alex is very knowledgeable about the local history of the Jewish community in Dublin. He was on time, made the walking tour interesting and accommodated our sore feet. Delightful experience.

Our guide, Mark took us all around the area relaying fun facts at each stop. Traffic is on the other side of the street (for those of us from the US) but following Mark made it easier.

I had a lovely time in this museum. the tour though short was lovely, lively and informative. Ciarán did an excellent job engaging his audience :) Recommend!
