Frequently Asked Questions
Generally the pricing is per tour of up to 6 adults. For larger groups, a per person pricing applies.
In order to secure your tour booking, all payments must be made in advance. Unfortunately, we cannot ‘hold the date’ for you, especially for tours during high season and on cruise days.
In exceptional cases, when you are making a last-minute booking (less than 48 hours before the tour), we can consider cash payment instead.
By default, if you book a tour on our website you are offered to pay by credit card. All payments by credit card are processed by a third party, AnyRoad, therefore they will handle all your payment information. Please refer to their website for terms and conditions.
For customised tours, you can also pay by bank transfer – let us know and we will prepare an invoice for you.
For a private tour, there is no minimum (Dubliners have spotted me talking to myself!). I can, and often do, take one person, but the pricing has a minimum. It varies by each tour, but it reflects the duration and, therefore, the price per hour. My favourite tours are the small, intimate ones where I have a family, for example, but I do enjoy the bigger groups from time to time as it involves a more theatrical approach. I strongly advise against booking a tour and then adding more people, for example, from your cruise ship. The purpose of a private tour is to create a personalised experience for a group of friends/family who already know each other and their travel needs – this might be more complicated if you invite a group of strangers where everyone wants to do their own thing.
For groups (students, corporate), 25pax or fewer is ideal. If your group is more than 30pax, however, it is preferable for all parties that the group be split and an extra guide (one of our Dublin Tour Guides) supplied.
All my tours are private and tailored exclusively for your group. Why? Because every group is different. And we’ve done so many tours all over Dublin that you can put me anywhere and we’d show you something interesting. Think of the tour as a conversation rather than a script. If we were doing a scripted tour like so many, we’d lose enthusiasm for it after a while. So by making each tour unique, it becomes a challenge for me, and it keeps us enthusiastic and energetic about showing you the great city of Dublin.
No. Go away.
Actually, yes. Go away. Go here. There you’ll find tour descriptions which all include the sites visited during that specific tour.
- 2-3 hours in duration each.
- A break half-way through (coffee/lunch break)
- Entry to an attraction during one of the tours. (which will probably be The Book of Kells or The National Museum of History & Archaeology).
- Your choice of two days, which don’t have to be consecutive.
