Tanya was amazing and exceeded our expectations. She met us at our hotel with bus tickets. She showed us sites only locals would know but also informed us of the usual tourist sites. She should us around for 4 hours each day for 2 days and made great recommendations for our free time. Thanks so much Tanya!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was an absolute pleasure Bob and Terry. Hopefully our paths will cross again someday! And keep up the Irish:-)) All the best, Tanya

Our walking tour with Tanya yesterday was nothing short of fantastic! Tanya is knowledgeable, friendly and full of details that bring the city of Dublin to life! Four hours was the perfect amount of time to see the important sights and get a feel for the city. Highly recommend Tanya if you are looking for a personal, up close look at the city of Dublin. Well done Tanya! We loved our time with you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to meet you both! Hope you enjoyed your much deserved pints in the company of Arthur Guinness afterwards;-) Thank you for your kind words and hopefully our paths will cross again some day!

If you are someone who wants to see and experience the city of Dublin Ireland I cannot even imagine there would be any one in the world who could do a better job then Tanya J. Her spirt and personality alone would be enough reason to spend a day with her but when you add in her tour skills, knowledge of the city and surrounding area's and her expertise in Irish history the day couldn't have been more fantastic !!

Tanya was a truly wonderful tour guide! Tanya was upbeat, enthusiastic, and attentive to the needs of our group. She had a thorough knowledge of Dublin, and was constantly adding humerous anecdotes, and Gaelic references as we moved along the tour. Making our own butter from cream, while sitting in the church cafe, enjoying scones and jam was definitely a highlight for the kids. Highly recommended! Dave Lane
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David thanks so much for your kind words. It was such a pleasure to guide your family around Dublin, especially to see your girls faces light up during the butter making and eating! Hopefully you will visit us again sometime. Tanya

Tanya was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend the day with. She surprised us at the Guinness Factory with a special lesson in the perfect Guinness pour. It was a really nice day in Dublin!

We had a wonderful time with Tanya. She fully engaged our 11 year old daughter, was very knowledgeable about Dublin, offered great suggestions for the rest of our stay and offered her help if we needed anything after our tour. All 3 of us enjoyed the tour, learned a lot and we would definitely book a tour with Tanya again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Kristina. It was a pleasure showing the three of you around Dublin and hope you keep up the butter-making ;-)

Tanya is fantastic! I can't think of a better guide to show you around Dublin, both the "usual" stops as well as some off-the-beaten path surprises. She sings, she plays the bones, she makes butter, and she knows her stuff. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that lovely review -it was a pleasure to tour Dublin with such an enthusiastic and interested group!
Tanya has been fantastic with our 3 kids; they (and we parents too...) really loved to walk around Dublin looking for fairies, producing butter, playing with traditional Irish instruments, etc. Thank you, Tanja! (A. Clerici)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrea, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Your gorgeous little girls were such an attentive audience and considering the blustery December weather, they had great staying power & you were all up for any adventures along the way:-) Slàn Abhaile (Irish: Goodbye for now) Tanya

Tanya is a excellent tour guide. Her history knowledge was exceptional. Her tour was organized and far exceeded our expectations. Our only regret is that we did not book her for 2 days. What a wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aw thanks so much! I’m delighted you enjoyed Dublin so much. That’s exactly what makes doing ToursByLocals so enjoyable, happy customers who got the most out of our great city! See you next time :-)
Jennifer McElroyUnited States
Very knowledgeable, flexible, and professional. Engaged our children in history! Really enjoyed Trinity College and Book of Kells tours; detailed knowledge and wonderful presentation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer, I’m delighted you and your lovely family enjoyed our little tour through Dublin! It was so nice to see the kids’ faces light up as they became little explorers around Trinity College:-) Thank you for your kind words! Tanya
Kevin CaseyUnited States
Tanya was amazing. This was just the type of tour we were looking for in Dublin. She showed us some out of the way places, popped into unique little shops, and saw several parts of the city we wouldn't normally have visited. She also gave us a great recommendation for dinner. She couldn't have been better and it was the absolute best way to begin our trip to Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin, thank you for your very positive comments. I’m thrilled that you and your lovely family enjoyed your day in Dublin with me so much. Seeing as the weather was as sunny as in California for the rest of your holiday I hope you were not too disappointed that you didn’t experience our Irish liquid sunshine ;-)) Next time, promise!! �� I look forward to our paths crossing again someday! As we say in Ireland, Slán Go Foil (Goodbye for now) Tanya

Our walking tour of Dublin on March 19, 2018 was absolutely amazing. Tanya exceeded our expectations. She was so knowledgable, sweet and such a pleasure to tour with. I absolutely recommend the walking tour and Tanya!!!! I can't say enough about the tour or our guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anna! It was such a pleasure showing you our great city and I hope my family scones recipe is working out for you :-)��
