A Recent Review of this tour

Janine was a wonderful, intelligent guide who made a walking day trip around Dublin feel like I got a great handle on this vibrant city in such a short time. She was a pleasure to spend the day with, and her knowledge and energy made it a day I will not soon forget. I strongly recommend Janine to anyone who wants to get a handle on Dublin in a day or two. She is brilliant! I hope to see her again for my next tour when I return to the Emerald Isle.
