The coach tour of the 1916 rising was absolutely excellent. I really enjoyed it for the Historical. The guide was very knowledgeable and I have to say he had some funny stories. It was great to visit the land marks . Totally enjoyable.

Eddie ran three tours back to back for our Sixth Class students. We couldn't praise him highly enough. He has endless patience! The children were entertained and educated and the teachers all loved it! Highly recommended.
