The tour guide was informative and funny. Tour lasted right on 2 hrs was perfect amount of time to get some good history of Dublin and Ireland without starting to lose focus
Perfect length tour to learn the history of Dublin. A very nice walking tour through Dublin with historical commentary throughout. With two teen sons, it was informative and interesting without being too long.
Comprehensive overview of Dublin and Ireland in the past two centuries. Our guide Sylvie was lovely, funny and full of information. Had a great time.
Our tour guide Brian was knowledgeable and personable. He did not rush while briskly moving us through numerous destinations and points of interest. We walked away having a better understanding of Irish history. After the tour was over, he even walked a few us back to a site that was not on the tour but one we had asked about.
Fantastic in depth (but 3 hours long) tour of the history of Ireland and Dublin. It helped to put everything else into context as we explored many other areas and castles/churches/parliament in the country. My 12 year old was able to follow along for the most part, my 9 year old was quite bored.
Loved it! Superb experience and great information about Dublin history. It was also a good way to get a great sense of the layout
We had Peter, who was great. These walking tours are essential, especially for a short trip to Dublin. The tour makes the city come alive in a way that you just can’t do yourself with your phone and google.
This walking tour was interesting. It felt very monotonous though and the guide, wasn't boring per say, but he seemed bored himself. I'm sure there were numerous other things we could have do with our time.
The guides are graduate students at Kings College and are very knowledgeable when it comes to the history of Dublin. Highly recommended.
We were with a group of about 20 people. The tour leader was in a mad rush from place to place, severely limiting our enjoyment and learning experience.
Excellent tour. The guid is very informative, eloquent, smart and with a good sense of humor. He even took more time with our group to go into details of Irish history. I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed.
Our tour guide knew anything and everything about Irish history, especially the parts pertaining to Dublin. He was very animated and had a wonderful sense of humor. So many wonderful and unexpected parts of Dublin are covered. It's a good mix between covering most of the major sites and some off-the-beaten path ones. The small stories that were shared really connects you to the place and people. The tour is a great way to get your bearings in Dublin and get ideas of what you want to explore more deeply.
