Excellent tour for tourists and locals. Comfortable bikes on a scenic route which suited our varied peddling ability. Informative and entertaining guide by James. Great to have a Cork city bike tour which matches and surpasses experiences abroad.

The bike tour led by James was really well managed: I am usually a little worried about travelling by bike on roads, and I felt really safe. James’ knowledge of Cork and personal stories make the stops really interesting. This is a fantastic way to see and understand the city that you’d be hard pressed to match by any other means.

We did the cork city bike tour this morning with Daibhi , our guide. Have to say it was a very pleasant and relaxing and informative way to spend the morning. Highly recommend. Enjoyable and a great way to see the sights of cork city and learn about the history.

We had a great tour, organised by James and led by Alan. We toured the city. Alan has an amazing knowledge of his city and he was just great. So much history in the city that we never would have heard about if we just walked around ourselves. Cycling was a perfect way to get around the city. Thanks James and Alan!

James was our guide for the Galtymore Hike. From the outset James made the group of six very comfortable. He walked at a nice pace, never a problem if we needed a rest. He kindly took loads of photos which are lovely to have. A 5 star experience overall and would highly recommend James.

Great mountain hiking day with James! He was cheery, knew his stuff and happy to work within our limits. These are NOT universal to all guides, believe me! Recommended!
