If I could place a 10 star I would! What an amazing day, Castles, waterfalls, fairy trees, lost Viking/ cursader graves, the hedges, and gaint causeway. Taking care of my 103 year old father, sharing poetry with us. Ending the day at the museum "War Years Remembered".

We had a tour with Wee Jim out of Belfast on July 31st. We would give him the best rating: 5 out of 5. We had a blast with Wee Jim as he showed us the countryside of Northern Ireland. He listened to what we wanted to do, told many wonderful stories and was easy to be with all day. Wee Jim has a wealth of knowledge and we learned a lot while we were enjoying the sights. I highly recommend this tour! You might even see a fairy!
Absolutely fantastic. Wee Jim was wonderful. We sent him the itinerary that we were self driving and he adjusted his tour accordingly. No rushing at all. Jim is a delight and there are times he just breaks into poem or a story for us. Be warned... no story ends well in Ireland...:D. (Except this one.. Jim is fantastic and we have no reservations recommending him to anyone. Two adults, two teenagers Jim was engaged the entire trip. Thanks so much. We hope to meet you (and Mark) again someday

We loved this tour with Wee Jim. He took us places we never would have seen on our own, but was very responsive to our requests. He never rushed us and reminded us that this was our vacation. He entertained us with wonderful stories and Irish music. He also gave us great advice for our own touring which we were to begin by car the next day. He was a great, safe driver. Thank you, Jim, for everything!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed my wee island Fred glad your home safe And every now and the. Think about returning lol Thank you

Jim was on time and waiting for us at the port when our cruise ship docked. Jim had a lot of knowledge about Belfast. He was proud of the beautiful landscapes he was showing us. He told us a lot about the history of the area. Jim was willing to show us any place we wanted to see. We had a very nice day with Jim.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane

Our day with Wee Jim was definitely the highlight of our two week vacation in Ireland. We left our tour to spend one day with him, and we are so glad we did. We wanted to tour County Antrim, the home of our Irish ancestors, and we were amazed by how much of the area and its history he shared with us. His knowledge and love of County Antrim were very impressive, as was his singing ability. I brought a list of possible sites we would like to see, and he went out of his way to show all of them to us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you i am so glad you had a great day out I do hope it will encourage you guys to vacation Here in the future and of course if you do please Look me up wee Jim

Wee Jim, we enjoyed your tour enormously. Lynn was thrilled to see the castle of her ancestors and the lovely countryside was amazing.

Gail Z.United States
Wee Jim made our visit to Belfast! He is an excellent tour guide! Hands down he was the highlight of our tours during our time in the UK! He has great stories to tell, lots of information, is pesonable, and took us to places we would not have been able to see if we had scheduled a cruise ship tour. He also was flexible with the schedule - geared the tour towards both teeneages and adults, and help the teenagers captive with his stories about the many area of Belfast. He's great!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gail there is still so Much to see and I really did enjoy Your company wish krista and leaghana the best of luck with their studies Wee Jim

Jim was a wonderful tour guide. He was very flexible and went the extra mile in every way possible. The sites were tailored for us and he quickly understood the type of tour we really wanted and customized the sites during the tour. We highly recommend tours by locals and Jim. We will definitely use him next time also.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you jim did you get the genealogy information I have sent
Allison WoodUnited States
"Wee Jim" was absolutely the best! He was so funny, animated, and passionate about his homeland! A native of Northern Ireland, he seemed to know EVERYTHING about it. Also, we had a few points of interest we wanted to see, he no less took us to them in our limited amount of time, but he added a few well kept secrets that were awesome!!! They were better to see then our points of interest! I would recommend anyone to take a tour with Wee Jim! He has a great voice too! ;)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you it was an absolute plesure plesure presenting my wee country to u guys allison you were a joy to tour with thank you wee jim

No trip to Northern Ireland would be complete without touring the land with Wee Jim. He is the epitome of an Irish gentleman. His passion and love for his homeland comes through in every story, limerick and song. His knowledge Ireland's history is unsurpassed. We have been to N. Ireland many time before so Wee Jim had the challenge of showing us places where we've never been. Not only did he succeed, he exceeded all of our expectations. It was a magical day that we will always remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kelli you and your wee group were a delight To present my country too please feel free to get in touch if YoU guys are back this way good luck and thank you wee Jim

James was full, but asked Kevin to fill in. He was fabulous! Our only disappointment was that James wanted us to stick with his car, so we couldn't do just what we wanted. Kevin was so knowledgeable about the history in Northern Ireland. We saw the Peace Wall, drove thru countryside, walked down to Giant's Causeway, and ended up with late lunch at Bushmill's Distillery. Had bomb scare heading back into Belfast; traffic tied up and long wait back to ship. Kevin was beside himself, but all ended well!
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Kevin substituted for James with the consent of the traveler.
