La nostro guida Michela è stata fantastica. Siamo andati a molti posti della città. In ogni luogo abbiamo ricevuto eccellenti informazioni sulla storia. Michela era molto ben informata e ci ha fornito molti fatti interessanti spesso in modo umoristico. Il nostro gruppo era composto da 2 italiani e 3 inglesi e ci siamo divertiti tutti immensamente Fantastic tour, knowledgeable guide, enjoyed by all!

For those who want to get to know the city, I highly recommend the experience of visiting the city on foot. The city center is not particularly large and a 3-hour walking tour is enough for a first acquaintance. We were guided by Giulio who proved to be a good connoisseur of the history of the city and also delighted us with smaller anecdotes.

Fantastic walking tour of Dublin (Temple Bar, tour of the most characteristic Pubs, St. Stephens Park, Parliament, Trinity College, etc.). About 3 hours with the guide Pasquale (no. 1) really nice and above all very prepared and dynamic. Absolutely to do with children too.

knowledgeable and entertaining guide! Loved this tour, learnt a lot about Irish history. Highly recommend!

It was an informative tour and we had a wonderful time walking around the city.
