Highly Recommend Alan Tours

Since we are traveling on a cruise ship we booked many tours ahead of time online. From the start of our communication with Alan Tours all aspects have been handled with professional friendliness and attention to detail.

Waiting for us as we left the ship was Alan Fogarty the owner/operator of Alan Tours.

From our first contact with Angelika of Alan Tours to our goodby at the pier we felt that we could not have had a better experience. Everything was perfect from our pick up to drop off.

Alan was perhaps the best guide we may have ever been with. All of the city tour stops he planned for us were terrific, his knowledge of the history, culture and current political and economic situations was excellent. His manner of imparting the information was concise and engaging; Alan knows how to tell an interesting story.

We had a clean air conditioned van capable of holding 12 (we were a group of 10) and Alan’s English was excellent.

We would give Alan Tours a 5 star plus rating and recommend his company to anyone.

Dear Angelika and Alan,

Thank you so much for a very special tour today. Angelika–you were so easy to work with over the months leading up to the tour. Alan–your tour was filled with historical education, present day discussions, and humor.

Every member of the tour raved about the time we spent with you. We felt that we saw and learned a great deal.

Thank you for the wonderful introduction to your fantastic city.

All best wishes,
