    This tour was absolutely awesome! Ann was super nice, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The weather was pretty bad when we did this tour, but Ann was so positive and was making us smile. The highlights of the tour were not at all ruined by the rain. If anything, I'm incredibly thankful we booked this "skip-the-line" tour because the line for Guinness Storehouse was INSANE. People had to wait outside in a storm while we just cruised passed them to go in. 100% worth it!!

I was a lucky one to be a single person in that tour, so the tour was just like private one. I am greatly thankful to my guide, he has knowledge and know how to share it with the customers.

We arrived early at the storehouse a little and the staff were so obliging and accommodated us earlier than booked time. When we got into the tour the staff were very helpful while we toured the storehouse, and also very informative when we asked for information. I would recommend this tour highly.

Brilliant afternoon out. Our guide was a local guy named mark, and his dog missy. He was great company, as were the other guests we met. Great food, great beer, great tour, great location. Proper value for money

We had a really good day, staff were fantastic. The whole experience is worth every penny. So glad I done this. Shop is very reasonable as well, and the view from the gravity bar is second to none .

Educational, interesting and nice environment, the exhibits are made enjoyable and there are also fun moments, great view over the city from the roof bar, with a nice beer :)

The self guided tour was great. You could go at tour own pace. The food in the restaurant was great tasting. The 7th floor was the best and so was the Guinness.
