We had such a great day with Brian! He was very responsive to what we were wanting to do on the day of our tour...highlight being the personalized visit to the Strokestown which then led to actually finding some possible grave sites of relatives and getting some general information about the family background...possible Royals?...lol (Brian-no need to mention the other possibility!). We learned so much about Ireland spending time with Brian...he was a delight...highly recommend his tours!

Brian is a real pro. His vehicle developed a problem and he immediately contacted Tommy, who came to our rescue and completed the Tour in his new vehicle with distinction and good humor. Both gave our party Excellent service and were very well informed. Highly recommended.

Brian was charming, informative and relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. We saw a large part of the surrounding area of Dublin in an informational but very enjoyable manner. His humor complemented the history he shared with us. We would definitely recommend him a guide in the Dublin area.

Brian was a fantastic tour guide, customizing our experience based on what we were looking to do. Our one day tour included a quick intro to Dublin city, the mountains, the coasts, the lakes, the works! Brian's knowledge of the area was priceless and the stories about each of the regions provided the 4D depth of what we were seeing, hearing and doing. A natural guide, courteous and playful; the Irish humor in all things made for this trip to be amazingly craic indeed! Highly recommended!

Brian's escorted tour of Dublin's outskirts and countryside was unique and breathtaking. We weren't looking for the standard tourist stops. Brian understood that and showed us things many tourists don't see. He has an exhaustive knowledge of the area and his humor made the drive even more delightful. Our group would highly recommend Brian Kelly.

Brian was an excellent guide. Although two of us had been in Dublin before, he took us to places we had not seen. We left with a greater understanding of the real Dublin and its citizens. Brian was able to relate to the three generations we included; teens, adults, and seniors. We all enjoyed ourselves and felt included.

Brian was a wonderful guide, and his balance of city and country was so enjoyable for our group of four. He gave us interesting details about the city of Dublin; his choice of sites outside of Dublin gave us a picture of the country that we loved--the farm land, sheep grazing, and narrow roads gave us wonderful memories. We especially appreciated how Brian shared his struggle with the Catholic Church, letting us see him as a person just like us who struggles with the complexities of life.

Brian took us around in his taxi for a day long tour of Dublin. We had been to Dublin twice before and wanted to see non-traditional sites. We had a great day touring the countryside, having a bite of lunch and an ice cream cone near the ruins of a monastery. Highlight of the day was holding a baby lamb! Our tour took us to places others might not see and Brian's stories were fun and informative. We had a great day together.

Brian is the hidden treasure of Dublin! He is an unbelievable character, a grown "Leprechaun" who made our day most enjoyable. Having been to Dublin twice before, Brian provided us with an out-of-way tour of the south coastline and the Wicklow Mountains. He stories & knowledge of the countryside and its people was unsurpassed and most delightful. Would have loved to have dined at Johnnie's Fox's but the visit was great. A super day.

Brian was a superb guide!!! Our family of six was greeted by Brian at the airport after traveling all night from the US. He took care of getting us settled into his van and then on to a wonderful day- long excursion to the Wicklowe Mountains. Nothing was missing from our day under Brian's careful expertise. He was kind, informative, and patient with our travel-weary group. We saw and heard of all the beauties of the Irish countryside.

Words can not describe the amazing beautiful unforgettable adventures we had with Brian. Best tour & guide we have ever had. We are a family of 5 with 3 girls ages 17, 14 & 6 so it can be hard to keep them all entertained but Brian had it covered. He took us to the places we requested and several we didn't even know about. He knows his IRELAND! We loved that he went at our pace stopping for bathroom breaks, snacks whatever we wanted he took care of it. Cant wait to come back and see more!

Brian made a rainy day in Dublin one of the best experiences of our time in Ireland. He is so friendly, making you feel comfortable from the beginning of our day. His great sense of humor and made the whole day enjoyable. His knowledge of history, the streets, parking, shopping, eating and music venues, was amazing. His accent and stories about his family made the day even more special. We were having such a good time that we extended our time, so we could spend more time with him seeing Dublin.

We found the perfect guide for our day in Dublin. Brian took us to the houses of the rich and famous, but he also showed us how "real" people lived. When I told him I wanted to shop for Waterford crystal, he took me to the exact department of the perfect store and I was finished in 15 minutes. And he even sang for us! He made it an interesting and memorable day.

Wow - what a great day we had. Brian was awesome. You could have not asked for a better way to see Dublin and the surrounding area in one day. We went to places that tourists would have never seen in a week. You know Brian is good to keep six women happy (one being 87 years old) at all times. Laughing the whole way. So Brian - if you see Kay on one of your next tours, tell her we love her.

I knew when Brian waved to me and said, "Welcome home!" that it was going to be a great tour. It was fantastic packed with sights and facts but also a personal tour- as if being given by a long lost cousin or uncle who is filling you on what's been happening. I could have gotten the Book of Kells with any tour group, but I would not have gotten any insights into the history of Ireland and it's impact on individuals. Brian worked around my interests- plus even bought me a candy bar to keep me going!

Unfortunately, we spent too much time in Dublin. We had hoped to spend more time in Wicklow and get a brief look at Dublin, but there was a miss in communication somewhere along the way.

A wonderful, lovely day in so many ways. Brian is a terrific person to tour with and made our group comfortable and kept us engaged and happy for an entire day. The sites were well worth seeing and we would never have found many of them ourselves. Would recommend this 100% to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lisa, Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your tour and look forward to seeing you again should you be back in Ireland.

Brian was the friendliest and happiest driver we have ever had, he was great at being on time every day and went out of his way to please us even though we took him out of his areas of expertise, he never complained or changed attitude or anything, he was a perfect gentleman all the time and extremely helpful with both of us during his driving around practically all over Ireland for us. He helped us with restaurant recommendations, with shopping, with everything we can think of, Brian was there for us. I

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your review it was a pleasure to spend 2 days with you. I hope you will all ways remember your time spent in Ireland, I pride myself on going the extra mile for my customers. If your back in the Emerald Isle again do not hesitate to give me a call.

Brian was a delight. He showed us more of Dublin than we could ever have managed on our own, along with seaside and mountain vistas. He was willing to work with us to meet our needs - limited walking and standing - and helped us to choose those locations that would best suit our interests. Thank you so much, Brian!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Honora, It was a pleasure to be your guide for the day; I hope that the sights you saw in Ireland may be of inspiration to you when writing your books in the future. We laughed and sang songs just like old friends; it was a great day, if you return again to Ireland give us a call.

Brian was a terrific host for the tour. He was very knowledgeable about the various sites. He had a most agreeable personality and wit. He was very accommodating to our wishes to see and visit particular places (i.e. Book of Kells and St. Patrick's cathedral). My companions and I all agreed that it was a very enjoyable and informative day with Brian. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Don, Sorry for the delay in replying it has been a very busy season here. I am so glad you got to see so much on your short visit to Dublin. Please send my best regards to all the gang; it would be great to see you back in Dublin sometime in the future.

Brian certainly made our tour of Dublin memorable. He seemed to know just the right places to take us as we were a party of 6 with varied interests. He went beyond what was contracted for and genuinely seemed to enjoy showing us his wonderful City. And the day was spectacular - weather wise. What more could you ask for. Even our lunch in the oldest Pub in Dublin was delightful. A very lovely man with an incredible knowledge of the City.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patricia for choosing me as your tour guide it was a tight schedule, but we got to see as much as possible in the short time. Including the Brazen head pub, you were very nice people and it was a pleasure to show you my wonderful city. If your back again you know the kettle is always on the Guinness is always on.

Brian was a pleasure. He shared his exuberance for his country and showed us the beauty of Dublin. A great, caring individual who made our time with him a highlight of our trip. His minivan will sit four to six tourists. A real winner!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elaine for your kind review, it was a pleasure meeting you. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the trip so much, as indeed did I. Best Regards to your whole group.

Brian Was wonderful. He suggested a lovely itinerary for the one an a half days we had in Dublin. Not only was he knowledgeable and fun, but he got us in to see the lovely and unique Guinness Castle led by Mr. Desmond Guinness and that was a real treat. Would highly recommend him to anyone planning a visit to Dublin.

We had a single day in Dublin and wanted to get in as much as possible, while still getting a real flavor for Ireland. Brian had a great tour planned for us. We saw more than we ever could have seen on our own and had an absolutely fabulous time! Castles, the coast, waterfalls, landmarks, pubs :) His personal stories were entertaining & informative. Brian was also super accommodating, taking us on two personal side trips that we had not planned in advance. I highly recommend Brian and Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vonda, Thanks you so much for your kind words and for taking the time out to put them down. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the trip so much, as indeed did I. Best Regards To Your whole group. Brian

Brian is very informed, courteous, and enthusiastic. The scenic tour of Wicklow county was enjoyed by all. He took us to a fun restaurant, Johnny Fox, which we really enjoyed. Brian was considerate and offered several times to take pictures of the four of us, while still keeping his eye on the clock. He did a great job in time management, and we saw most of Dublin in the time allotted and informed us of the historical significance of things. I would definitely request Brian again.Top rate
