Wee Jim was delightful, knowledgeable, very fun. He loves his city and his country He took us to a WW2 museum that we would not even know existed. The six of us had a wonderful day. Thank you Wee Jim!! The Waters Baxter's & McCallins ������������

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks it was that when you remarked that members of your party were USA veterans and their was a chance David Macalion war years remembered would be at the museum I took the chance as we were in the area he has a great knowledge of the us forces and allies forces in Northern Ireland- it was nice of him to open up the museum for us - and your right Rosmary the assets should be advertised for cruise ship visitors- the day went fast however we did get lots in I’m glad you guys enjoyed the day Thanks wee Jim

Wee Jim is wonderful! He brings wit, humor, and vast knowledge of Celtic lore to his tours. He tailored the agenda to make the best use of our limited time, even getting us a last minute guided tour of the Giant's Causeway and added in a surprise visit to Little World Magic where an expert craftsman makes fairy houses that are truly magical - one of the best parts of the tour. He shared tips for future visits to this beautiful land. Highly recommended to make your time in Belfast one you'll cherish. A++

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you sir the delay got me thinking lol I’m glad you enjoyed your day

If I could give 10 stars I would. In many years of travelling, this is by far the best tour I have EVER been on!!! Wee Jimmy not only provided us with a beautiful insight into Northern Ireland - he took us off the beaten path and into the secret world of fairies! We ate the best scones at the base of a beautiful waterfall. He delighted us with stories and music of the country. Jimmy arranged for a personal tour at the Giants Causeway which was both fun and educational. I highly recommend Wee Jimmy!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow thanks what can I say ! May your giving hand always have strength lol Thank you

What a great day our group of 6 had with Wee James. James was waiting for us as soon as we exited the ship and took us on an amazing trip through the countryside of Northern Ireland. James vehicle was spotless and very comfortable. This tour definitely takes on roads less traveled and the scenery was breathtaking. Our entire group commented on what a great day with wonderful scenery, storytelling, poetry, song and all the wonderful FAIRIES we met along the way. Thank you Wee James for a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks that’ is so kind I really enjoyed the company enjoy Iceland and I’ve let the ice giants and elves know to expect you guys It was lovely to meet you Wee Jim

Jim was a great guide and story teller! We all appreciated everything that he had to offer for us. Our family has ancestry from the area that we toured, and Jim went above and beyond to help us try to find information and sites about our family history. He made sure that we saw all of the key sights and landmarks of the area, he set up private tours for us, and he gave us lots of valuable information about everything that we experienced. A much better experience than a shore excursion from the ship.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks guys speech less ( for once lol ) Thanks you so very very much for your Graciousness! Ps it was a very early immigration however Templecorrin ballycarry is the right Parrish at that time brilliant stuff!!

Jim is fabulous! He took us on some backroads, off the beaten path, and made sure we didn't miss anything on this tour. One of my favorites (that we would have definitely missed without Jim) was a house with lots of "fairy houses." Thanks for a great day Jim!

By far the highlight of our tour of Ireland. Jim was so knowledgeable about the history, culture, folklore,etc. He provided special personal experiences that we could have never gotten on a commercial tour bus. We never knew what surprises he had in store for us: Little hidden gems around every corner. When we return, without a doubt, he will be our guide of choice!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks guys really enjoyed your most excellent company!!!

We saw more than we expected during our tour with Jim, and he had so much good information. The problem was that with six in our family, the people in the last row could hear almost nothing he said. He is a delightful man and a good tour guide, and we really enjoyed the variety of places he shared with us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Unfortunately my microphone fell out the window on the motorway down to the dock as I explained- these things happen I do apologise that this adversely effected the tour It has now been replaced I do apologise again for this ( it was the fairy folk lol ��

If we could give Jim 10 stars we would! He took great care of us and he made a special day for us perfect! He thought of everything and made sure we got the most for our money. Amazing surprises, expert guidance, with a well planned and timed itinerary. My husband and I have travelled extensively and so have our two friends that were with us. We all feel he is the best EVER! Would definitely book with Wee Jim again and again and will most certainly recommend to friends and family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so so much guys I really enjoyed your company!! That shore timing just wasn’t long enough!! Thankful that we beat the weather Enjoy the rest of your cruise

We give James 5 stars! He is by far, the BEST tour guide we've ever had the pleasure of knowing out of the many guides we've had over the years. His knowledge, humor, story telling and good natured personality are the absolute best ever. My wife and I give him the highest rating possible. He was our guide here 6 years and we were so pleased to be able to hire him again. We shall recommend him and Tours By Locals to our friends. The magnificently beautiful tour he created for us will be remembered

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow thank you Charles and Gail it was my pleasure the end of April start of May is my favourite time of the year and the flowers, lambs and weather made it good luck to you and Safe home May the road rise up to meet you till we meet again Wee Jim

Wonderful day exploring Northern Ireland's coast with a most entertaining guide! Jim picked us up at our hotel and from the moment we left, we were enthralled by his manner and his great storytelling ability. We not only learned about the history and geography of Northern Ireland, we also learned many stories and legends as well. He had even arranged a local guide to take us to the Giant's Causeway as he felt that he would better teach us about that area. This is a tour that we will talk about for years!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Elizabeth I was worried as the days are short and the weather challenging thanks for the great day out I enjoyed your company And your kindness

Our day with Wee Jim was the highlight of the trip. His knowledge and passion for the country was evident. He made a special stop at Island Magee, arranged a tour of the Causeway, took us to the Fairy Farm, a nature preserve, Dark Hedges, the rope bridge, allowed time for jewelry shopping, drove by Dunluce Castle, stopped for pictures - you name it and we did it! His stories and music added to the day. It was a most memorable day and would recommend his tour for anyone!

There are no words to describe Wee Jim's tours he has to be the most funniest and knowledgable individual we have ever met. We were with him for over 8 hours and those hours went extremely fast, he gave us a tour of Belfast and then we hit the country side with roads that only he go we got to see the true Ireland specially with his singing, story telling and reciting all those Irish things. We gave Wee Jim 5 stars because that was the highest we could give him. Excellent tour with the best tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Most kind sir and you know your welcome in the glens when you return thank you

We had an amazing tour conducted by Jim. Knowledge of history, fantastic ferry stories and great humor possessed by Jim was really an eye opener. All six of us agreed that never before we had such a wonderful tour guide. Jim went over and above the duties of the tour guide. He took us to places which were not on the itinerary to show us as much of Northern Ireland as possible in one day. He has a huge passion for his country. Ones again, thank you Jim for a beautiful journey and we hope we meet again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Think you for your kind remarks Yuri It’s a privilege to present my country to visitors such as yourself thanks Wee Jim

Jim was an absolute delight and gave my family and me an extensive and fantastic day through Antrim, going well beyond eight hours! We visited places you would not go to as a tourist, and he was a wealth of knowledge and joy. His stories are a fun to hear, and he interweaves them with bringing you to locations that have history and meaning while keeping you away from almost all crowds during the day. We had a great time. And he even returned a lost water bottle we left the next day to us! Highly recommend

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ellen so glad you enjoyed your time with me indeed it was a great day out lol

What an amazing day! Wee Jim created a day we will never forget. He took us to places that tour buses would not be able to reach and we felt like we really saw a local view of the area instead of a tourist's view. We truly appreciated the time he spent with us and we never felt rushed. He seemed to want to squeeze in as many things as possible before we had to be back on the ship which was so great. He answered every questioned and we loved his many stories and songs! Thank you, thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Melissa My pleasure thank you what excellent company and what an Excellent wee day out

Wee Jim's tour brought Northern Ireland to life for us. He was the perfect guide: brimming with local knowledge of the landscape, folklore and political history. He was gracious with his time and attentive to our particular interests. He took us to little known spots and managed to avoid the tourist hoardes, offering a very personalized and engaging experience. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to tour Northern Ireland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Steve I really enjoyed your party’s company

Great guide. Extremely knowledgeable. History, poetry, story telling all great. Got to places no buses could ever get close to. Would recommend "Wee Jim" to all. All of us had a great time and got to see the beautiful countryside. The ladies also got a chance to pose with the "Game of Thrones" crown. He took us to the shop that designs a lot of the jewelry for the show.
