Our Irish tour guide was at credibly knowledgeable, kind and too time to get to know the individuals in the group. He added enough humorous quips to keep us engaged and never wavered intellectually. We all learned a lot and he angled his history to reflect what may appeal to the crowd. Ie. The Brooklyn Bridge side story about the German architect who started the project as my visiting relatives are from Hamburg, Germany.
