A wonderful day in Dublin with Janine. She is knowledgeable and delightfully personable. Tailored the tour to our specific interests, and was an enjoyable companion as well. Very highly recommended.
Julianne HarpUnited States
Janine tailored our tour so that my teenage son saw sights in Dublin that would interest him. From Dublin Castle to the Viking Wall inside the public building we had a great time learning about the city. She made sure the entire tour was wheelchair accessible for my son, which between that and customizing the sights we saw, is exactly why we book with Tours By Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your great feedback Julieanne, great to hear you both enjoyed our time together. Happy New year to you and Will! Janine

Janine is a great guide, passionate about Irish history. Her Celtic background, insider knowledge of the city and ability to relate to all ages made our day fun and informative, We focused on country history, the famine, and Dublin history. Lunch was great, simple but special. Janine listened to our questions and had great answers and stories... When we are back we will look her up again. It was hard to leave her company, just like saying goodbye to an old friend... TY for a great last day!

Kelsey VietsUnited States
We appreciated Janine's extensive background on the personalities and cultures that have shaped Ireland, namely Dublin, over the past centuries and she brought and unique perspective as a local that we couldn't have captured on our own. She was very amiable and pleasant and had a great sense of humor. Seeing a city through a local person's eyes is a great concept and it was easy to see how much Janine enjoyed her job and interacting with people from all over the world. Thanks for a great visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a million Kelsey! I really enjoyed spending time with you folks.

Excellent guide and experience! Janine was our guide for our July visit to Dublin and we had a great day! She picked us up on time and quickly connected w/ our family (party of 8). Janine planned out a day based on our interests that included Malahide Castle and Kilmainham Jail. Janine also suggested a lunch in the city of Howth (Brass Monkey), the food and Guinness was delicious. We highly recommend Janine for any tours of Dublin or the surrounding area. She was super fun and informative!

This tour with Janine was by far the highlight of our trip to Ireland. Janine was loads of fun and incredibly knowledgeable. Gledalough and Wicklow were absolutely stunning. We took a lovely hike, had lunch in a great pub, and spent some time viewing Guinness Lake as well. We were also able to view the Sheep dog demonstration, which we forgot to sign up for in advance, but Janine made it happen for us last minute. Don't hesitate to book this tour. Thank you for such a fun and memorable day, Janine!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank yo so much Karen, That day was a high point in my summer, so much fun with fun people!
Richard SchmittMcLean, VA, United States
Janine is an excellent tour guide with whom we would gladly tour again. She is smart and so much fun. In our four hour stroll we gained insight into Dublin, its history, politics, arts and people. From Vikings to King "Billy" William, invaders to emigrants, Dublin Castle to coffin ships, O'Connell to the Easter uprising we heard it all including Yeats, Joyce, Beckett and Bono in the best, low key way. AND we stopped for tea and the best scones.You'll be happy to tour with Janine.

Janine conducted a lovely and informative tour. We like to hear about Ireland today in addition to history and she was most accommodating in sharing her view of todays Ireland. She is funny, well spoken, flexible, creative and spontaneous. Jo Anne

Yiu Kam WongHong Kong
Janine is a competent, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Apart from the details of the tour spots we visited, we gained a good understanding on the history of Ireland. We are a large group of 16 persons, but she managed the tour well and everybody was very happy with the tour. Also need to mention the coach driver Dave. He always wore a warm smile on his face and was extremely friendly.
