Tour: #540171, Malin Head & Derry/Londonderry, Donegal, Donegal, Ireland    view tour
Date: Jun 20/19

We took the Malin Head and Wild Atlantic Way tours with John and we can't speak highly enough of him. He is a tremendous guide. He brought us to wonderful places we could hardly have reached alone and on the way he told us about history and faries. He is so friendly and loves Donegal. He never rushed us, even joining in trying to solve my nephew's complicated "who dunnit" misteries. Donegal alone is absolutely worth the trip to Ireland and we unanimously voted John as our favourite person on this trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to show you around Donegal,

Tour: #541277, Donegal & North Sligo, Donegal, Donegal, Ireland    view tour
Date: Jun 12/19

This was a terrific tour. John (a former police officer) was able to share with us old legends, stories of the Troubles in Northern Ireland (Donegal is right next door), and information about history and geography of the area. We covered a lot of ground. One highlight was the visit to William Butler Yeats’ tomb and a waterfall that inspired him in North Sligo. And of course, the tea shop next door. We had a wonderful time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It a pleasure to show you around today. Enjoy the rest of your trip. John.

Our second tour with John on yet another rainy day was thoroughly enjoyable due to John's wonderful dedication to his tour guide responsibilities. He has mastered the planning of EVERY detail of your tour. Our day was again filled with good cheer, warm food, great dialogue about the many stops we made and a deep understanding and love for his land and his people. We loved his use of Gaelic and explanations regarding translations and the history behind all the places we visited. Another wonderful tour!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thany you for your kind review. Dia Duit. John

Our first of 3 tours with John exceeded our expectations! A native who seems to know everyone and all the interesting out of the way places of interest on back roads and in pasture lands replete with sheep! John is an expert at showing you the finest views along the way for photos, regularly hikes Slieve League and has a deep knowledge of the geography, flora and fauna, culture and folklore born of his lifelong experiences and a keen intelligence and love of learning. John is a true professional!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed the Donegal Countryside. John

John is an outstanding native, as well as local, tour guide, and there is a difference. A quick look at his page reveals how serious and passionate John is about his work as a professional tour guide. Having taken 3 of his tours while in Donegal Town, I can honestly say that John thoroughly MEETS AND EXCEEDS the ToursByLocals' Business Principles: Professionalism, Full Information, Responsiveness, Reliable, Value for Money, Knowledgeable, Proactive, Well Groomed and Flexible. A delightful day we had!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for you very kind a generous review. I enjoyed each of the 3 days with you and I’m glad I help you have a good experience in Donegal :)
