My guide was awesome! I know this review is really late, but I am so glad that they waited for me, my flight was delayed in the US and by the time I got there, I was running, but so glad that I made it. Great info.

A day in Wicklow with a private guide! Scenery, history, & hiking (if you want!)

star-5
This is a tour of Wicklow, given by someone who grew up here and loves it. The tour described is an outline of what we might do, but we have plenty of options. I can suggest other places to visit on our day, and can incorporate other site visits, within reason. I am a Driver/Guide so we have a car, have a guide, and can do what we like!! Sometimes I bring people to some of the lesser known spots - old bridges by dark rivers, or up a favourite mountain, or to a beautiful garden. Occasionally, I bring visitors to my family farm, where my father and brother enjoy meeting visitors, and showing them over the farm. This is a 300 year old farm house which has been in the family for 8 generations and sheep, cattle and poultry are kept. You will be expected to chat with the family and tell them where you are from too!
