John is extremely knowledgeable and informative about all things Ireland. We loved our tour of the Wicklow countryside and lunch at a local pub. John showed us so much in the time we had and shared personal stories and local lore. Great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves.

John gave us a complete understanding of Irish history which has added immensely to our stay in Ireland. He is an amazingly learned individual and translates his knowledge into being a great guide.We would heartily recommend him. He is also an excellent driver and has a very nice Mercedes van. Hire him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very nice review. It was a pleasure showing you my native city.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much. It was a pleasure being with you.

Date: May 26/18

John was most knowledgeable about Malahide estate and gardens. Our group of 5 enjoyed our tour... and he was flexible in allowing us to make a few stops because we were in our time frame arranged for the tour. We learned a lot of information about Ireland and the city of Dublin. Thank you John.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves.

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 was excellent, very knowledgeable of Dublin today and it's history. He was open to any changes we wanted to make and totally accommodating. Also, after John dropped us off, my son realized he left his backpack in the van. We contacted John and he delivered it the same evening. We would totally recommend John and his tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was a pleasure meeting you and I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves

Tour: Private Tour - West of Ireland and Cliffs of Moher, Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
Date: Aug 26/17

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

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many Thanks for your nice review. It was a pleasure meeting you both and I am so happy you enjoyed our trip to the west coast.
