Though some what familiar with Dublin from three previous visits, this time my wife and I had with us all our children and grandchildren, thirteen of us in all, our ages ranging from nine to seventy one. Consequently I doubted my ability to give our diverse group the flavor of Dublin – its history, culture, and vitality – in a... More

I am one of the "Moms" who spent marvellous prolongued weekend in Dublin. One of the usual activities on our yearly "getaway weekends" is a tour with a local guide. Garvan was the best guide ever. Those five hours we spent together walking around Dublin were filled with laughter and fun but still packed with information about Ireland and Dublin.... More

His knowledge and passion of each attraction left us wanting to learn more about the city's rich culture and traditions. He is also particularly good at turning dry facts into fascinating anecdotes and was often able to entertain and educate us with interesting stories about Dublin's history. I think he 's an amateur actor;) I would absolutely recommend his private... More

If you talk about Garvan more than the Guinness, if you remember all the facts and stories, if you still have a smile on your face and if you want to come back. Than you know why he is the best. See you next time!

He's a great story teller and tour guide. It was lovely to hear the history behind the things we were looking at, and I actually learned a lot about Irish history on our tour. He's got a lot of personality and makes the tour authentic and original.

I agree with all the positive reviews about Garvan that I have read. Garvan really was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. I could not belive that every single person from our group (26) was able to listen to him so attentively throughout 6-hour tour. Now, that is an achievement! He's got courage to act, to engage people in... More

Absolutely grand! This guy can explain a lot in a short time which is really hard to do these days!!! Plus, I've never researched so much about something or stories someone ever told me than him. This guy knows how to do it. Thanks man, for the chance to show me/us Dublin in that way - grand!

Garvan was fantastic and his knowledge of Irish history was superb. He added so much to see the sites of Dublin that I can't recommend him enough.
