Date: Jul 3/19

Damien put together a great day for our sightseeing around he city of Dublin. Starting with a visit to Newgrange and ending with a tour and detailed explanation of the Hill of Tara we both learned much of the Ireland history and had some great photo opportunities. The day flew by and Damien kept in very interesting and very on point. Damian's restaurant and music recommendations were right on! Food was terrific and Irish music was "trad" and known by the locals. I would highly recommend Damien.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Folks you are very welcome I look forward to meeting you again on your next visit to Ireland.... Damian

We had a wonderful and very special tour today with Damian, who worked hard to get us to Newgrange on time for our scheduled tour. At Newgrange, the guides there take you to the site itself. Damian waited for our return. He is extremely knowledgeable about Ireland and is extremely proud of his heritage. He spoke eloquently about the country, its history, its geography, politics, and anything else that we wanted to learn about. We enjoyed ourselves and really learned about Ireland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alice, many thanks for your valuable custom. Thank you for all the questions, I was delighted to meet you and your fellow travellers. Enjoy the rest of your cruise. Thanks Damian

Reservations made well in-advance provided a smooth and enjoyable full day of exploration. This was our second tour in as many years with Damian and he exceeded expectations on both occasions. When we return to Ireland, Damian will be our "go to" guide. Brilliant!

We highly recommend Damian. He had a great deal of knowledge not just about Newgrange but also Dublin and Ireland in general and a terrific delivery. He was very receptive to questions and usually had an amusing anecdote or two on various topics. He also provided excellent recommendations for other Dublin adventures (zoo, Glasnevin cemetery, Phoenix park, etc.). Overall, we really enjoyed our Newgrange trip with Damian.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow folks thank you so much. Look forward to seeing you in Ireland again soonest.

Damian was the perfect guide for my son and I to visit Wicklow Mountains National Park & Glendalough. He had invaluable information about the area, Ireland and its contributions to the world. I was so impressed with his depth of knowledge, courtesy and humor. My young adult son found him fascinating as well. Highly recommend Damian. He is a true five star guide in a beautiful county.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Catherine, Thank you so much for your valuable custom. I truly enjoyed touring with you both.

Damian is a very nice man and a great guide. We landed on the first day of "snowmageddon" and were 3 hours late coming out of the airport to begin the tour. Because of the weather Malahide Castle was closed, so the original plan had to be scrapped. Damian waited for us and then worked with us to salvage the tour; in the end we feel we were given the best alternative that could be arranged under the circumstances. We recommend this guide to everybody who visits Dublin!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Anatoly, many thanks for taking time to review your experience. What a storm hey.... Emma turned into one to remember. I was delighted to meet you and your wife. I very much look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Ireland. Thanks again Damian.

Damian did an excellent job for us! He got us to and from the tour professionally and safely. Once there he guided us around for a bit and his knowledge of the site was superb. He then pointed the way and my wife and I got to explore on our own for a bit before meeting back at the car. At the end he even dropped us off in another location to explore and helped us with public transit help to get back to where we were staying. We would definitely recommend Damian for a tour.

Damian was waiting for us at the pier. Our drive to Waterford and back to the pier combined was about 3 hours, but didn't seem that long as Damian was informative and addressed each of our questions and comments. We learned a lot about the country and its commerce, government and politics. The city of Waterford was not large but we were impressed with how clean and beautiful it was. The locals were quite friendly and helpful as well. The Waterford Crystal operation was wonderful and very impressive.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Waterford. I very much look forward to welcoming you back to our wonderful island soonest ... happy sailing Damian
