    Marion Our very knowledgeable tour guide met us promptly on time at the commodore historical hotel built in 1854.
    We walked along with her while she pointed out memorable sites and informed us of the history of the 123 passengers that embarked from Cobh to board the doomed ship.
    We saw and learned so much as well as seeing the town of Cobh. Highly recommend this tour.

    This was an interesting tour and my husband enjoyed it more than I. I felt that the guide who is an authority on the Titanic did give us interesting information but he also spent a lot of time telling us about the books he wrote, where he was asked to speak and so forth.
