We booked an electric bike tour for 4 with Ben on our recent trip to Ireland. It was one of the highlights of our trip! We had so much fun! Ben’s communication from the time of booking to after our trip was top notch! We felt safe and confident riding the streets of Dublin with him. We gained a huge appreciation for how pretty the city was because we took this tour. We would have missed out on so much.

Thank you for the terrific tour which much to our surprise included pictures, relive and music. Thoroughly enjoying your thoughtful, detailed presentations, historical context and personal stories of the various sites, and neighborhoods we departed today w a richly textured appreciation of your lovely and vibrant Dublin.
Ben understood us right away, the two (2) foreigners who, for some reason, needed to know how a Dublin neighborhood looked and felt. We cycled safely through the city and learned a bit about how the city surrounds the harbor and was built at the mouth of a river and with the Grand Canal that once allowed access across the whole island country. Ben is a native Dubliner who knows some interesting facts about persons who should be more historically famous than they seem to be. He can explain why street names and place names are what they are, not to mention real stories of the "Luck of the Irish." We had a thoroughly active, educational, and entertaining bike ride with a true Irish Sports Fan. We did not expect to come away curious and wanting to learn more about Irish sports and how they are governed by the Gaelic Athletic Association. Ben taught us more than enough to make us anxious to visit again, because now our interest is peaked due to his well-led peek into Dublin, Ireland. BTW – Perhaps booking with Ben helped us with our luck; we had three (3) days in Dublin with cloudless skies and warm weather in late September.
Ben was an amazing guide! He shared so much about the history of Ireland and used his knowledge of the Gaelic language to give more meaning to his stories. The hike itself was beautiful. The landscape and foliage made it very special. We experienced rain and wind during the hike, but with proper gear, you will be comfortable. Ben went above and beyond during our experience. He stopped to take our photos during the hike and will be sending them to us later. After the hike, we ate lunch and visited a petting zoo. After lunch, we had time before the bus arrived and stopped to have a pint. When the bus dropped us off at the meeting point, Ben offered to show us a more affordable way to get back to our Airbnb. He went with us to get a Leap Card (the card used for public transportation) and showed us how to get on the LUAS (rail system). We are so pleased with our experience and with Ben! He is a superstar tour guide!
