Joe KrauseUnited States
Our ToursByLocals guide, John, was very informed and entertaining as he showed us around Dublin. We walked all around and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as we learned things we hadn't expected. John was a great guide throughout with an excellent demeanor and a charming personality.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind review, Joe. It was a pleasure strolling around the city with you both - you had a lively and informed interest in everything we explored. Thanks also for your generosity in tipping me and inviting me to dine with you afterwards - I look forward to welcoming you back to Dublin some time again in the future.

We are four adults...all retired. This was a long walk about that covered most of the highlights in Dublin. Be ready for walking which is the best way to get around town. John is a wonderful guide with deep knowledge of Irish history and has the ability to recount detailed history of most every sight we visited. Long day that you must finish off with a Guinness and Irish stew.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comments. I personally thoroughly enjoyed your company during the day too - a pity the museum wasn't open earlier however - and the rain? I won't apologise for that since you're from Seattle and it probably made you feel right at home! Take care, enjoy Galway when you get there, and hopefully we'll meet again some time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Tili - You and your friends sure know your Jewish history, and you asked such informed, intelligent questions. Come back to Dublin again soon!

John is a fabulous tour guide and ambassador for his Country. In planning the trip, he was a wonderful communicator, listened to our wants and delivered an incredibly organized and customised tour. We celebrated a birthday with a beautiful cake that John arranged to have baked and iced for us with a special message, "Kiss Me. I'm Irish. John is so knowledgeable and has such interesting stories and facts to share about every site we saw. We'll recommend him to friends and family. Memorable, lovely day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Marilyn. Like I said, I enjoyed the day with you and Mike myself - and it was an honor to celebrate Mike's birthday in your company. I hope you enjoy Cork as much as you enjoyed Dublin - and come back soon, 'cause there's more to see!
Paul FriendUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with John yesterday. He was very informative about the history of Dublin Castle, Christ Church, Trinity College but also knowledgeable about U2, Irish film history, good local restaurants and the Dublin Spire. John clearly enjoys interacting with people. Overall a great tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments! As ever I enjoyed giving the tour as much as you enjoyed spending the time with me: I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Dublin just as much. Looking forward to seeing you both again in the 'Fair City' some time soon ...

John gave us an excellent tour of city! Great knowledge of history, culture and customs. It was a highlight of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It certainly was a pleasure showing you and your party around 'the Fair City'. Hopefully the remainder of your cruise went well, and we will see you all again in Dublin some time in the not too distant future!

John is very knowledgeable of not only Jewish Dublin, BUT Jewish Ireland. We spent the entire afternoon walking all over the Jewish area, seeing and visiting in the synagogue with all of the beautiful memorabilia representing Jewish life and history in Ireland. We went to the Bretzel Bakery, the only Jewish bakery left in Ireland. Thank you John for such an AWESOME day with so much insight into Ireland, it's people and especially THE JEWISH PEOPLE
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was certainly a pleasure Sheila sharing my obsession with Dublin's 'Little Jerusalem' with you both. You were so engaged and interested in everything, especially when we got to the Museum in Walworth Road and were shown around by some of the older members of the Jewish community here. I don't think we got everything covered that we wanted to, so you'll have to come back soon! Looking forward to seeing you both again in Dublin...
