Helena was excellent. Her knowledge of Cork, it's history, the important institutions and sights was superb. She is most pleasant and so easy to learn from. She chose all the most important sites including the English Market, University College of Cork, the old French quarter, the 2 major cathedrals and the shopping areas. We would highly recommend Helena.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much..

Helena was an excellent guide. We only had the one day in Dublin and wanted to see as much as we could. We spent 6 hours walking and saw many wonderful sights. And had a fine lunch in a restaurant I would not have found myself. Helena was a font of information about Dublin and its history. We had a wonderful time.

Our walking tour with Helena around Dublin was fabulous. It was informative and did not feel rushed at all. Helena was happy to answer any questions and very flexible with the itinerary. She arrived at our hotel on time and from then on was friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our day - even tho it was a little on the chill side - and would def recommend a tour with her. Thank you Helena - we had a wonderful day (stopping in at a bar to have an Irish Coffee to warm up was a bonus!!)

Excellent tour. Wish it was 2 hours longer. Knowledgeable, fun, witty with lots of inside information. Need to go back to spend time at the things we were really into. A great overview with lots of history. Helena was absolutely amazing.

Date: Jul 20/16

This was a great day.! Helena knows her history and there is so much of it in this part of the world! She took us to Blarney Castle, which has SO much more to do than "kiss the stone"! Be sure to find the "Witch's Kitchen" or look for the "Fairies". Visit Jameson's in Cork, it's the real deal. Helena knows all the best around this part of Ireland. We had a great time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much.Glad you enjoyed.

Helena was a wonderful guide, showing me the sights of Cork. She was also very accommodating when I wanted to buy a souvenir that was off the beaten path (a local rugby shirt). I got to see places that were non-touristy that gave me the flavor of what it is like to live in Cork, not just visit. Also, she took me to have a REAL pint of Guinness :) - Mike

Helena talked a lot and sometimes it was unnerving. Her driving also was not that good. Drove fast then slow made both my wife and I a little nervous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr Brown, thank you for your comment. I am sorry that you were somewhat disappointed. You will recall that on the tour day there was torrential rain and flooding on the roads and the car did chug a little bit with the damp and wet.No need to be nervous, I am an accomplished driver with no accidents,and familiar with our roads and weather. In relation to talking, it is a bit of a juggle as it appears some clients also complain that the guide does not talk enough!! Do call back to see us again.

Our family, which included two teenagers and an 80 year old grandmother, thoroughly enjoyed our day in Dublin with Helena. Helena is personable, energetic, knowledgeable, easy-going and fun. She catered to our interests and took us through most of Dublin weaving together the city's ancient and recent history for us. We saw more and learned more in our day with her than anything we could have put together ourselves. We really covered the city and had a memorable day. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful, thank you and I am so glad that you enjoyed the day...

A wonderful experience! Helena and I emailed prior to the tour and she was very conscientious about doing things I wanted as well as what she knew was intriguing about Limerick.She has a vast knowledge of history and shared her interpretations and views of local politics/economics etc.in a well versed manner. She walked and walked since I had said that is what I wanted. We ate lunch at a great pub and checked hurling scores in the afternoon! She made certain we were safely at the bus stop before leaving.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful! Thank you so much for your kind comments and it was lovely meeting you..

Helena did a fantastic job taking us around Limerick. She is a natural at being a tour guide. Very informative and kept us,moving to places she wanted us to see as well as getting to a few places we wanted to go. We enjoyed the Frank McCort museum and the girls there very much. And of course it was perfect to end at a great pub. Really nice place and we all enjoyed it. You can tell Helena loves doing this.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, lovely

Helen was on time and waiting at the dock with a comfortable car. She took us to places we specifically requested and we were happy with that. But she was not overly informative or forthcoming with anecdotes on the history and culture of the city. She left us at an upscale restaurant for lunch, though we might have liked a typical Irish pub or the like; and she did not stay with us for lunch. We spent an hour traveling around the outskirts of Dublin with no conversation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm surprised by your feedback - I thought I spoke constantly and pointed out things along the way - although in the car I sometimes need to focus on the driving. I suggested places to eat and you agreed with the choice I made in relation to a fish restaurant. I thought you would prefer to have lunch on your own, as it was a full day tour.
