What our clients said about this tour

I recently went on a walking tour around the shore from Portaferry with Brigid and was delighted with the whole experience. She has a great knowledge of the geography and history and is very engaging in her presentation. Her knowledge of flora and fauna made the tour so interesting. Highly recommended.”
