    We started our trip with this particular tour, and it was perfect. Our guide was informative, smart and engaging. We learned a tremendous amount about Ireland's history and it's impact on present day. Hearing the stories while standing in the same places being referenced was incredible. We would highly recommend this tour for any visitor.

    Our tour guide Brian was knowledgeable and personable. He did not rush while briskly moving us through numerous destinations and points of interest. We walked away having a better understanding of Irish history. After the tour was over, he even walked a few us back to a site that was not on the tour but one we had asked about.
