Joan PortmanUnited States
I found Peter charming and in possession of a wealth of knowledge about the Jewish history in Dublin. My only request to improve the tour would be to enable the synagogues to be accessible. (which is not Peter's fault).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joan Thank you so much for the generous review. You were a lovely interested guest and very easy to host on the day. Dublin is full of Jewish heritage and memories as well as an active if small community-much to see! Thanks again Peter
John WiejaczkaUnited States
Dublin turns out to be a tough place to break out and see the countryside, from our ship to the outskirts is 2 hours minimum. On the way back we faced even more traffic due to a concert. Peter did a good job taking us to Waterford and Kilkenny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks John for the nice review. The big concert sure did slow up our return to Dublin but nonetheless hopefully the tour and visits remain a better memory!
A very pleasant, and quick look at Dublin's Jewish history as well as some of the city's highlights. Many thanks, Peter, for adapting our program at the last minute and, especially, for sharing your own family's life in this most charming locale. James and Leslie Gut, Zurich
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you James and Leslie for the lovely comments. You were great guests and it was a real pleasure to host some of your time here (too little) COME BACK SOON!

Debbie GreenbergUnited States
We had a very nice tour of wicklow county and jewish dublin. Peter had a very comfortable car with a driver. Even though we had just arrived that very day and were tired, Peter made it interesting and educational. We were able to really capture the beauty of Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Debbie Thank you so much for the great review and comments about your time with me. You were a pleasure to host and I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again in the future
Ronald NissenUnited States
Peter was marvelous! It was extra special for him to have a driver so that he could spend more time explaining the sights in the countryside around Dublin. The countryside was beautiful but the Powerscourt Gardens were truly outstanding. His commentary and explanations were top notch as was he.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you all for a great review and comments. You were a wonderful group and a pleasure to host-come back soon!
Linda DruckerUnited States
Peter White was an incredible source of information on Jewish history in Dublin. We enjoyed our tour of the Jewish historical sites including the Portuguese Synogogue (awesome) and the Jewish community. We visited a local bagel bakery and were warmly welcomed. We toured a Dublin park where we saw the USA embassy and president of Ireland's residence. We enjoyed our tour and beer tasting in the Guinness factory. The coastal part of Dublin- with all the boats and parks were delightful. Truly an awesome tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda I so appreciate your kind comments and great review. You were such a pleasure to host-it made our time together very enjoyable for me.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hank you so much Leslie for the great review and kind comments. You made the tour a real pleasure for me as a host
Francine FuntleyderUnited States
He showed us many spots that we believe we would not have found on our own. Peter shared personal items with us, which was very touching. He went out of his way to point things out and answer any question we put to him. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone wanting a wonderful day tour of Dublin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Francine. For me our time together was far too short! You were such great guests and it was an absolute pleasure to host your tour here. Come back soon!
Judy BonfilioUnited States
Loved the Peter White tour of Dublin and environs. We learned some history and got a good mix of city and rural Dublin. He was prompt and courteous and was able to include a stop for a pint. This was an easy-going tour in a comfortable vehicle, with lots of good information.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy for lovely comments you were very easy and a real pleasure to host

Sandra SamoleUnited States
Our tour with Peter was delightful. He is knowledgeable and passionate about both Jewish and secular Dublin. Our day was well planned and executed. We had time to learn, time to walk and talk, time to enjoy the beauty of the land and architecture of Dublin. Peter Is a considerate guide always checking to be sure that we were comfortable and having our expectations for the tour met or exceeded. We loved the stops at local places for coffee and ... We recommend a tour with Peter if you are in Dublin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! What a fantastic review - you were both an absolute pleasure to host here-please come back soon Peter
Jeannie ZapponeUnited States
Peter is such a warm and friendly individual. We had great conversations with him and he showed us that we would always be welcome in Ireland. It is a great country! We can't say enough about him that you probably don't know but he is a real asset with your company and would recommend him to anyone who asked about a driver in Ireland. Please rate him with the high points of 5 in each category. We sure miss him since our return home and we hope to meet again someday!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeannie what a wonderful review and comments! being with your family was an absolute pleasure and I was so happy to be part of your family "roots" project. The Coon folks were lovely and I have great memories of our time together. I have NOT forgotten the photo print and I will do it hopefully over the weekend. In fact I am travelling to the US for 1 week shortly but only as far as NYC. Keep well and in touch Your Irish friend Peter
Deborah SmithUnited States
Peter made this tour fantastic by personalizing the experience. Having a local who lived the Jewish history provided a far superior tour. We would highly recommend this to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Deb thank you so much for the lovely comments. You both made it very easy for me to host our brief time together. Sorry you did'nt make service-I knew you were far too tired-maybe next time!
Elizabeth SchulmanUnited States
We had a lovely morning with Peter W.. he is friendly , knowledgeable and very accommodating. He gave us a nice overview of the small Jewish community in Dublin. He then drove us to Trinity college and gave us an overview.. would rate him a 5! Thanks so much.. Elizabeth
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Elisabeth for the lovely review. You were all an absolute pleasure to host yesterday. Happy cruising and do try and find Susan and Steve Brown on your boat-I hosted them the previous day.
Susan BrownUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Peter getting out of the city for a visit to the lovely countryside in the Wicklow area. The Irish landscape and views of the sea were right out of a magazine. Peter is a very interesting, entertaining and caring guide. A day well spent and to be remembered for many years to come. We hope to return and spend more time with our new friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan and many many thanks for the lovely comments. I will send the photos tomorrow and hope to meet you both again in the future. I hosted another group from your boat yesterday. Happy sailing! Peter
Heather Holmes-FeatherstonUnited States

Neal GottfriedUnited States
J. Cynthia McDermottUnited States
We spent a wonderful, informative and fascinating 3 hours with Peter on our second day in Dublin. Interested in the Jewish history of Dublin as well as the current status of the country, Peter was the best choice I could have made. He is more than willing to be flexible but also clear about what he thinks is important to know about. We even had bagels at the last bagel shop in the city! I can recommend him with great enthusiasm and give him a 6 out of 1-5. He was an excellent introduction to Dublin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cynthia What a super review! Much appreciated and you both made it so easy for me on the day-you were a real pleasure to host here in Dublin. I give you 5+++ !! Thank you Peter
Teri Dreyfuss-GrayUnited States
Peter was a very amicable informative guide. Willing to please us and take us wherever we wanted to go. He had a great knowledge of Dublin! Thank you Peter for you making our day wonderful!

My husband and I highly recommend a Dublin walking tour with Peter. We enjoyed seeing many famous landmarks including Trinity College, Old Irish Parliament, Temple Bar and many more. While learning fun and interesting facts along with the history of Dublin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Jodi. Your lovely review is appreciated. You were both great guests and a pleasure to host here in Dublin. COME BACK SOON!!
Laura CrossUnited States
Peter, is one of the best, most knowledgeable, funny and kind tour guides We have ever had on TBL! I will most definitely call on him again in the near future and recommend him to friends and family that want to visit Ireland!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laura Apologies for this delayed response to your great review. I so appreciate your comments and hope maybe to meet you again sometime. In fact I am in NYC from September 10 for 1 week. Can you message my your phone number? Maybe we can meet up
David GoodmanUnited States
Unfortunately Dublin is a city of noise. With new tram lines being built it was not the easiest task for Peter to make our day special. Nevertheless he succeeded. We not only saw the special sights but thanks to Peter we learned a great deal about the demographic history of the city. He went above and beyond.--truly an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David and many thanks for the nice review. You were lovely guests and I enjoyed your company equally--come back when the road digging is finished and traffic is calmer!
Leah ReicinUnited States
Good tour, pleasant guide whose family has been part of Irish history . This tour should always include a general tour of Dublin since Irish Jewish history is limited and relatively young.
Anna ImuraUnited States
He is very knowledgeable, funny, and caring person. We are all happy of his guide tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great review Anna. You were a lovely group and I do hope the rest of the cruise was enjoyable. Come back soon!!
Tom BalshiUnited States
Peter was very knowledgable and accommodating. We had a wonderful time going to Moher and would highly recommend a tour with this guy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Tom for your comments-the day was a pleasure for me-you were both so appreciative and showing you some of Ireland's outstanding beauty was just great.
The afternoon with Peter was amazing. We shifted the program in the first 5 minutes and he showed us Dublin and the Dubliner incl. a trip to the coast. He has a lot interesting to tell and is looking well for the customer's wishes. strongly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Thomas-you were both great company and it was a lovely day. Come back soon
Eldon PriestleyUnited States
Peter was our guide on a wonderful 9 hour private tour that included Trinity College/Book of Kells and Enniskerry , Powerscourt Estate and Gardens, Roundwood and Glendaloough, all in County Wicklow. Besides being extremely knowledgable about the history and geography of Dublin and the surrounding area, he is warm, witty and willing to tailor your tour to exactly what you want to see. We won't soon forget our day with Peter taking in the grandeur of Dublin and lush beauty of the County Wicklow countryside.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eldon for a lovely review. You were all such a pleasure to host on the day it was equally great as a day for me Do come back soon!
John RehmsUnited States
Peter went out of his way to make our Cavan tour memorable and very special. Professional, but so approachable, It was a gift spending time with him. Thank you Peter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the lovely review. I hope your tour is going well. I will collect the book and mail it tomorrow Lovely to have met you Peter
Jeff HawkinsUnited States
Wonderful Tour Guide. Enjoyed our tour of Dublin and hearing about so much history. Peter was a delight. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeff for a lovely review. much appreciated. I hope Kerry was good and the driving was not too scary!! Regards Peter
Connie JesseUnited States
Peter was kind and knowledgeable and reminded me of my favorite Irish uncle. He made sure we had an alternative when the tour we had booked to the Cliffs of Moher turned out to be unsafe that day. I would recommend him to anyone interested in Irish culture, history and to see the beauty of Ireland. The roads can be dangerous. I felt very safe in the car with him. My one complaint is that the van rental was tight. Those who sat in the back were a bit squished and there was not much room for our purchases.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the 5 star review. The weather was out of our control but Galway helped to make up for it! I must agree about the seating in the 7 seater and any future vehicle for a group of this size will be bigger.
Dara PerfitUnited States
Touring Jewish Dublin with Peter W. was a good way to start our Dublin stay. It gave us an overview of Dublin and the lay of the land in addition to specifically Jewish areas. Peter is a genial, flexible host with an excellent knowledge of Jewish Dublin history. We enjoyed our day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dara for the lovely review-much appreciated. I really enjoyed your visit here and hope to meet you again in the future regards Peter
