Hey guys! First things first. Thank you so much for visiting our new site. We are so excited to finally be up and running. We’ve been working extremely hard these past few months trying to get Touristy to this point. We have been sourcing and interviewing some of the best taxi guides from all around Ireland. Our mission is to offer 5 star, private and tailored tours using only licensed taxi guides who have local knowledge through growing up and living in their respective county. We’ve interviewed so many drivers trying to find the ones who had that natural gift for story telling, who were enthusiastic, knowledgable and the ones who really loved to talk about the history of Ireland. I’m sure you can also agree nobody will know their country better than the local taxi driver.
Touristy are offering you a very unique experience whereby you get to visit all the sights in your own time and at your own pace. Our private style tour packages are very competitively priced. Why book with an overcrowded bus tour package and visit one site spending too little or too much time at a sight because that’s how it has to be.
Would you prefer to have the ability to skip past a sight that doesn’t tickle your interest as much as an other sight? Visit many more sights in one tour instead of spending three or five days of your holiday visiting sights separately through the usual one sight one day model offered by other bus group package companies. Why not have your tour guide show you something off the beating track? “Oh look! There’s that perfect selfy opportunity with the sunset in the background. Please Stop!!!” Have you ever tried that one with a group bus tour package? This sort of behaviour is totally acceptable if not encouraged with Touristy. Your driver will even take the picture for you so it doesn’t have to be just a selfy.
Have a particular tour package you’d like to create? No problem. Just send us an email and we will more than happily work with you to create your personal package. Not sure what you want? No worries. Perhaps you’ve not been to Ireland before. No problem. We have been working closely with our guides and based on their shared experiences we have put together some example tour packages we’re sure you’ll love.
We’re ok with you booking a pre planned package and then sending us an email outlining some changes that you feel will make it that bit more special for you. Remember these packages are put together to help as a guide and can be changed at anytime by yourself. You’re in charge.
We’re also going to be constantly updating our blog with new articles suggesting the best things to do in Ireland and when. We’ll be blogging about all sorts Irish-related such as the best walks, cycles, climbs, swims, foods, pubs, craic, arty stuffs, festivals, hotels, travel news and anything else that may tickle our taste buds as we go along. We hope to give our blog a community feeling allowing all and everyone to join in on the discussion. We will be also adding guide profiles so you’ll have a better understanding of who we are and how we tick.
So let me finish off by saying thank you again for visiting Touristy. We hope we’ll have a chance to help you see the best of Ireland and in the most perfect way as well, chauffeured about the place in an entertaining and relaxed way. Let’s celebrate with 15% off all our tours booked within the next few weeks.
Below our some testimonials our drivers have received via Trip Advisor while they worked with taxi Tours Ireland. You can see the full list of reviews via this link on Trip Advisor. We don’t like to boast but none of these guys have received anything less than 5 stars. We’re excited to have these guys on board.
Alan and John picked us up promptly from the cruise terminal and took us to Dublin for the day. John was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all the interesting places he took our group. My husband asked him to take us off the beaten path to a true Irish Pub. WOW!!! He took us to Kavanagh’s Gravediggers and the experience was fantastic. Best Guinness ever! I would highly recommend you use Taxi Tour Ireland, contact Alan and John and you will have a fabulous experience in Dublin.
We found this company on Trip Advisor and arranged a private trip to Killucan to visit the village my husband’s ancestors were from before we started out CIE tour. They left Ireland in the 17th century. We really just wanted to stand on the same ground. I found out there was a cemetery still there from that time period so that is where we went. Paul was our driver and we really enjoyed him and learning about Ireland from him. Highly recommend this company.
Alan picked us up from the Airport and took us on a Dublin city tour and a few “bonus” places. Had GREAT photo opportunities. Was not rushed at all. He knows Irish history so well, and is great at explaining it. He was very patient if we wanted to stop and eat, take pictures or ran some hot chocolate. His lovely wife even packed us a delicious homemade lunch for our journey to Galway. If you are looking for a personal and private customised tour THIS is the way to go. Thanks Alan!
