Unfortunately, the weather forced us to cancel this trip. Instead Peter came up a great option which include the House of Waterford and Kilkenny castle.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Alan Apologies for the late response to your nice comments. The weather did make the change necessary but Ireland has so much to offer we still had a great day! Come back soon! You were lovely guests

Peter was a star. Even thought we spoke on the phone a few months back and discussed what we want to do and see, when we first met, he what to discuss if things had changed from our first contact. Dublin is an amazing place to so much to see and do. We had a very short time to see as much as possible. After checking the weather, and we determined that a change was needed, the was jolly on the spot to come up with great options. We highly recommend him both as guide and warm and caring person.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alan and Elaine-thank you so much for the warm and generous comments. You were lovely guests and very easy to host on your visit here. Do return someday on your many travels! Warm wishes Peter

We had the Pleasure of Peter White escorting us around Dublin, showing us traditional sites and some of the Jewish Heritage that was historical as well. His knowledge exceeded our expectations. We even had a stop at the local old Jewish Bakery in Dublin. We also were taken out of the city to see the magnificent countryside, a bonus for us. He was flexible with the tour and willing to please. He picked us up promptly and returned us on time to the ship. Lots of magical memories made that day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Gail! What a lovely review. You made it such a pleasure for me. A wonderful day and many thanks for the company and fabulous comments

Peter was an amazing guide. We had such an enjoyable day with him. In the more we did a Jewish tour and he made it so meaningful by incorporating his own family story, replete with pictures. Following the Jewish heritage piece; he took us along the coast showing us some beautiful picturesque towns, shared lunch Toby and visited the James Joyce museum. It was a fabulous day with a delightful guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both for a wonderful review-your comments so much appreciated. You were very easy to host and our time together was a real pleasure for me. Did Janis make contact with Alwyn? Come back soon Peter

Peter put together a very personalized tour for our group. Half representing on the Jewish history of Dublin and the afternoon focused on Wicklow countryside. Peter went out of his way to engage locals to make our time in Dublin special. I would recommend Peter to all visitors to Dublin if they wish a customized tour of the city and surrounding area. Peter traced his lineage back to the 1800's in Dublin with documentation and photographs. It was most interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi George I really do appreciate the great review and comments you made. It makes it all worth while and you were such a pleasure to host here. I will pass on your comments to Hillary. Thanks again and come back soon! Peter

Peter was informative and extremely pleasant. The best was how flexible he was. Due to weather and schedule changes we needed to adjust our tour. He, without issue, did this and made sure we still saw the best of Dublin. He was a great guide and I would recommend him to all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Angela and team. Thanks so much for the great review. You were a really nice party and I was delighted to host your visit here. I do hope you had a safe return home and on behalf of Tours By Locals -- THANK YOU AND COME BACK SOON!! Peter

We had an incredible day today with Peter. Not only is he the BEST tour guide but we feel as though we spent the day with a new friend. We went a little off of our itinerary which was perfect and saw parts of Ireland we would not have known about otherwise. Thank you Peter for a great day. We will recommend you to everyone we know who is traveling to Dublin.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barbara and Mark thank you so much for the amazing reviews. You were an absolute pleasure to host and a lovely come back to guiding for me after my hip surgery .

Peter was an amazing tour guide. He knew everything about the area and all the best ways to avoid traffic. He was extremely personal as well as professional. He took the extra step to purchase our castle and garden tickets prior to our arrival so that we wouldn't have to wait in line. He also discovered that my mom had left her jacket in his car and took the time to deliver it back to our cruise ship. Fabulous guide with a great sense of humor. If we return to the area we will definitely find Peter.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vikki how lovely to receive such praise. You made it very easy and such a pleasure- the time together passed too quickly! Come back soon Your Irish friend Peter

Peter was an outstanding guide. Through his personal experiences he gave us an unusual insight into what Jewish life in Dublin had been and what it is now. At the Jewish Museum he introduced us to other Jewish Dubliners and that added to our experience. His knowledge was not limited to Dublin Jewish life, but shared with us information about Ireland in general. We enjoyed our time with Peter and think others would as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sandra. Showing some of dublins heritage to you was a pleasure. Do come back soon!

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

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!
