I’m a history buff so taking this was a non brainer. James’s knowledge and professionalism was great but not just that he was a really nice fella and a great ambassador for Dublin.

Must go tour! James was informative, knowledgeable, entertaining and interesting! There were a few repeat customers on our tour because he is that good! Wish I had more time to do his other tours.

No pudimos hacer el tour ya que el guía no estaba. El punto de encuentro no estaba claro (en el mapa te redirecciona a la parte superior de O’Connell street mientras que el texto te dice que vayas al Spire). Por este motivo andamos calle arriba y abajo un par de veces pero no conseguimos ver a nadie con un paraguas amarillo. Nadie nos contactó para avisar que estaba cancelado. Teníamos muchas ganas de hacer el recorrido, bastante decepcionante.

Vergüenza. Tour a la 16h y a las 16,20h nos hemos ido sin que se presentase el guía. Nadie nos ha avisado. He escrito a gurú walk pero no me han contestado. Pesimo
