John has an encyclopedic grasp of Irish History, culture, economics, and politics. We had a stop over in Dublin prior to a connecting flight that allowed us a 6 hour tour during which we saw the book of Kells, the archeological museum, had lunch at a great Irish pub, toured the financial district, saw St.Patricks cathedral and briefly visited the Beatty museum to see preserved ancient Christian scriptures . John organized the tour brilliantly. My family appreciated learning from him. Mike Manoles family

John was an excellent tour guide. He was ridiculously knowledgeable and took us to some of the best places that we have ever seen. He didn't only tell us facts, but stories that helped us tie the knots to the history form our home town.

Through John's passion and knowledge in history, we experienced a phenomenal day in Dublin.

Last minute tour chosen by my travel mate who awoke unwell so it was a bit much for me. John was on time & courteous. He knew everything about everything. I was not really interested in the flora of the Powerscourt Gardens but he was the expert so it mattered not. I loved his stories about the original red wedding and how the servants of PCG did not perish in the famine because the landlord "saw it coming" & overlooking Guinness Lake learned the sad story of the Lucky Man Who Made the Grade. A great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice review. I hope your friend is better now. I enjoyed your company on what must have been a difficult day.

John picked our party of four on time at our ship. We saw many of the sites included on most tours including the Trinity University Library (Book of Kells), St Patricks Cathedral, Phoenix park, Dublin Palace, Guiness Brewery etc. We had a great lunch with John at Brazen Head Pub, very old and charming. John's in depth knowledge and enthusiasm was obvious as he provided a very rich commentary on everything we saw. Our conversation at lunch was fascinating. It was a great day.

When John met us at the dock he explained the plan he had designed to accommodate our instructions on our e-mails, and also accommodated us with a couple of new things. He was a very professional, knowledgable and informative guide. Although the weather was changing constantly he managed to go around the situation and we were able to see more things than we wanted it. He made sure that we had everything including umbrellas which were very handy. Excellent Tour Guide and excellent tour accommodated for us.

John was an excellent tour guide, with an extensive knowledge of Irish history and culture. Our tour was more than we expected. John helped us to maximize our time in Dublin and made suggestions as to how much we could reasonably see during our time frame. He promptly picked us up from the ship and made any adjustments needed to accommodate our needs. John has made us want to return to Dublin and surrounding areas to explore in more depth the many treasures there.

John was an excellent guide, if you want a tour of Newgrange he is definitely the guide to go with. My son was very excited about this tour, but if you have teenagers that are not eager to visit a historical site John would be able to find a way to relate and explain history to them through current novels and movies to get them engaged.

John is the very best.... We had a super day in Dublin! John really knows his stuff and was most enjoyable to spend the day with. He is very accommodating and easy going, at our pace. He really wanted us to see as much as possible in our time together, which we did. Knowing when to be and when not to be at a particular spot really maximized our tour time. We wish he was available for another day while in Dublin but the schedule didn't permit. We highly recommend John and suggest you book well in advance.

Date: Apr 18/18

John did not seem interested in our input about content of our private half day tour. Did not hear our clear request to see both cathedrals. Spent way too much time at Book of Kells (1.5 hrs) and city hall. Took us on long detour to show us sites in vicinity of our hotel despite us saying we'd already seen them. No time to see inside Dublin castle. Sprinted through both cathedrals only because of my stern insistence toward the end. Very disappointed to have spent so much money on this tour- a waste.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry you were disappointed and felt rushed on your half day walking tour of Dublin. I am always anxious to please my clients. As I explained it is not possible to spend a lot of time inside any one place in half a day and it is certainly not possible to get around Dublin and see inside everything in such a short time. The route I took is fairly direct between Trinity College, the Castle and both cathedrals, getting to all four and inside three in four hours on foot is a doing well in an afternoon.

John took us for the West Coast trip. It was my wife's first visit to Ireland and John did her best to get her the most in 12 hours trip. Great knowledge on his subject (horticulture) with soft passion for his country, we came to know the every smaller details of the region. John was so caring with my wife's limitation of walking (he even organised a wheel chair at Cliff of Moher). Had great local food and local music during the drive. We really enjoyed every moment with John and look forward to come back
