My wife and I toured the key points of the Dublin, Ireland's historic Jewish community with guide Peter White and totally enjoyed the experience. The tour included the essential sites as well as helped to capture the essence of the old neighborhoods including the homes of celebrated Jewish leaders, some of whom went on to prominence in Israel or other parts of the world. Peter picked us up an old Jewish bakery restaurant for tea. Capping the day was a visit to the small James Joyce Museum, which as writers, was of interest to us. We found Peter brimming with local knowledge and good humor. It was a very informative day.

We booked a tour of the Boyne Valley with Michael last year, and it was fabulous. This year, when we had a chance to spend more time in Ireland, we turned once again to Michael to show us the ancient sites in eastern Ireland. He did not disappoint! While I had visited some of the sites the previous year, this was the first time for my daughter, and she loved every minute of it! Michael is so very knowledgeable about the history of the sites. We never felt rushed, and yet we were able to see so many wonderful places during our day. I cannot recommend Boyne Valley Tours high enough!

Michael spent an entire day taking us through the Boyne Valley. It rained half of the day and Michael was prepared to get us to the less sheltered visits in the morning. He was extremely informative. We visited Newgrange, Hill of Tara and several other locations. I would definitely use Michael again.

Family history trip to explore for ancestry was a wonderful experience. Can't say enough about the effort and courtesy shown by Michael. This trip was a bit out of the way and he still was able to be informative and supply added experiences and sights. Great unexpected picnic in a beautiful site overlooking Arrow lake and the Irish countryside. Birr castle to see the telescope a highlight with great arboretum and formal gardens.
