We spent the most enjoyable day with Noel. He was informative, flexible and quite humorous! He had excellently recommendations and we thoroughly ghly enjoyed our day. We ran into him the next day while he was touring with other people and he still took the time to greet us like we were old friends. We highly recommend Noel!

Brian was our guide for this super fun tour of Dublin by car…we highly recommend!

Brian put together a custom tour based on our conversation…Dublin Bay, incredible views of Guinness Lake, lunch at Johnny Fox’s pub. Brian added his knowledgeable commentary from Dublin history and recent events.

We were able to see what we wanted to see…so each tour can be unique! An added advantage, as a taxi driver he knows every inch of Dublin, and can drive in the special lane for buses and taxis!

We had never been to Dublin before, so when Alan asked what we wanted to do, we told him it was his choice. I'm so glad we did that! Alan knows so much and truly loves this city. He got us into a couple of very interesting tours, and he knew so much of the background. After we saw quite a lot of the city, he took us up the coast so we could see some castles and we had the most delightful lunch in an Irish fishing village. Alan went out of his way to make sure we had a great day. We will keep his card and ask for him when we come again to Ireland, which will no doubt do.

Hello Eaglexkr, Thank you so much for the 5-star review. Alan is our lead tour guide and his passion and love for the city comes across always, im so happy you enjoyed the day he planned out for you. We will be sure to make him your guide if when you return to Ireland. Kind regards, The Touristy Team.

We loved this tour because it was totally customizable! We made suggestions as to where we thought we wanted to go and Alan made it happen, along with his advice and suggestions. We really wanted to see the coast of Ireland so he took us south and saw some beautiful countryside that wasn't too far of a drive. The only thing we'd recommend is that you speak up if there is something you want (or don't) want to do, to be sure he does it. And be sure to get your questions answered, Alan is a wealth of information about Ireland and its history, myths and legends, but he will share it ALL with you if you don't guide him with your interests! Great day!!

First of all - ask for Alan!
This was money well spent. Alan completely customised our day to our preferences and allowed us to see and experience %100 more of Dublin and the surrounding countryside than we would have been able to on our own. The cars are clean and new and Alan is a veritable book of Irish history. We will most certainly be back and make use of their services again in the future.

I’m not sure how many great things I can say about Touristy!!!! Our driver, Alan, took great care of us and showed us many sites. When he arrived at our hotel to begin the day, we had a short consultation so he could gauge what “must do” items we had. He then designed the day around what we discussed and made sure he took us to as many things as possible. Our elderly mother was treated with extreme care as she is not as mobile as my sister and I am. He made sure she was included and took us to walker friendly locations while still catering to us and offering to stay and keep mother company if we wanted to do something she wouldn’t be able to get around for. I can only recommend Alan and Touristy with the highest grade.....it is a great private tour and I suggest anyone traveling to Dublin to give it a try!!!

I wish I had not booked this through Tripadvisor. The communication was terrible. I had many questions about the tour but was told very little until the last minute, and ended up only going on half of the tour because of what I discovered what it was about. The tour guide we ended up with was great, but I wish I had been told ahead of time what to expect and I would have booked it and planned it a lot differently had I been aware. Next time I will try to go directly through the tour company to book it.

Hello Travel_Beach_Teach, We are so sorry to hear about your experience with Touristy when booking via an external platform. We really pride ourselves on our service - whilst booking, touring and after the experience - so we'd really love to connect with you and discuss what happened in more detail as it's not very clear to us which booking is yours. Our Viator plastform shows that your tour was in June 2019 and we've only received your review today, February 2020, so we'd love to understand if we have missed something. Would you like to email us privately and we can discuss what happened. So that you know, our tours are all based around the individual needs of our guests (So every private tour is different) and our guides ensure on the day that they come up with a plan that best suits those needs. Any of our tour packages hosted on the Viator platform should have this explained clearly. The tours on Viator are worded as "example" tours of what you might expect and we do make note of important pre-bookings where we know you will need to prebook in advance. Regarding our communication, as a policy we aim to write back to our guests within 24 hours of their queries, especially once a booking has been made via the Tripadvisor or Viator platform. We have however been told that at times that our guests might have not received a response from us although we can clearly see the responses on our Viator dashboard. If this is an issue on the Viator platform we would love to have it resolved with Viator themselves. Viator is a huge platform and we strive to manage our end as best we can. We would prefer if our guests would book via our own website to ensure they can ring us or email us directly to discuss their upcoming trip. As you did mention; your tour guide on the day was very good and a one-star review on this platform can really hurt our ratings on Tripadvisor. In the tourism industry, we have a saying "you are only as good as your last review" and with that in mind, we would really love to the opportunity to try and improve guests' overall experience by rectifying our tour notes, or addressing the issue with our partners if it was a communication failure on their end. We hope to hear from you soon. Many kind regards, Bradley

What's so wonderful about Alan is that he finds the right balance between his vast knowledge as a tour guide and our preferences as guests. We felt very taken care of all weekend. We also hired Alan for additional private transport and he looked after us as if we were family. Endless gratitude!

Alan was very knowledgeable and we appreciated the options he gave us as we had a limited amount of time. He loves his country and shared so many interesting facts about the history. We would highly recommend this tour company and will book with them again when we return!

Hello, Thanks a million for your kind review. I'm delighted you had an amazing time with Alan. We are very aware he goes above and beyond for our guests and really just enjoys being a lovely host for Ireland. His ability to offer many options on the same tour is a testament to his knowledge driving around Ireland for the majority of his life. We really look forward to seeing you again some time.
