Tour Guide Reviews

Du lässt Träume wahr werden. Danke für die schöne Reisezeit.

You make dreams come true. Thanks for the wonderful trip.

Andrea hat uns als Reiseleitung und als Mensch hervorragend gefallen. Sie hat ein immens grosses Wissen, viel Lebenserfahrung, man kann tolle Gespräche mit ihr führen. Sie erkennt die Interessen jedes Gruppenmitglieds und geht speziell auf diese ein. Sie ist von einer natürlichen Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft, ohne sich zu verbiegen. Ich würde mir gerne noch weitere Gebiete Irlands von ihr zeigen lassen.

We really liked Andrea as a tour guide and as a person. She has immense knowledge, a lot of life experience, you can have great conversations with her. She recognizes the interests of each group member and caters specifically to them. She has a natural friendliness and willingness to help without bending over backwards. I would like to have her show me other areas of Ireland.

Tony Kirby is a man of many parts. I’m still trying to figure out whether he is an historian, raconteur, writer, linguist, archaeologist, geologist or poet.

My name is Brad Thompson and I’m a journalist employed by The West Australian newspaper. I was lucky enough to be a guest on one of your walking tours in June 2010. Thanks for showing us around the Burren and for such an entertaining and interesting afternoon – Brad Thompson, The West Australian newspaper.

Kirby slips in nuggets of information as if they were breaking news.

Oh, Paul. What can I say? You tolerated 3 crazy ladies from the US all day. Won’t mention your heroism on behalf of my sister. We are still laughing today. Connemara was soooo beautiful! Loved where we went to lunch. Your patience while we shopped was above and beyond. If I could I would give him 10 stars. I will use this feature again. Thank you so much, Paul Nancy, Betsy and Jean.

Paul provided us with a wonderful day in the stunning Dingle peninsula. He is knowledgeable, informative and was responsive to our needs & requests. He incorporates music & humour into his program to keep things fun. He drives a well maintained, impeccable vehicle and thoughtfully provided water. Our tour was memorable. He had a nice sense of humour and enjoyed telling jokes and playing music along the way. You will enjoy your time with Paul.

We are beyond delighted by our experience with Paul! I shudder to think of all we would have missed had we opted to go to the Cliffs of Moher on our own. From the sites we saw to the people (and animals!) we met, Paul brought County Clare to life. We will never forget our experience, which is just the beginning. We can’t wait to come back.
