Tour Guiding









I copy below a selection of unsolicited testimonials I have received from bus/cruise passengers who I never knew before that cruise/tour in relation to my guiding skills:

Crusie Liner Guiding and Lecturing:


I would like to commend you for your efforts in providing this outstanding blog. I was a passenger onboard the Marco Polo from 1/13/2008 to 1/21/2008 and had the pleasure of your guidance during our zodiac cruise at Cuverville Island. Your enthusiasm was contagious.

I knew of your blog a few days prior to my embarkation and have followed it on my return home. Your photos are amazing and depict the actual adventure we encountered.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the blog. I was on the first Antarctica trip this season and it was great to follow the details of the other trips. Your enthusiasm was contagious !!!! Thanks again for the photos and descriptions. Good luck with future Antarctica trips.

Hi Jim
It's Marco from Safety Office.
Love your lectures and your personallity is awsome.
All the best and thank you for this seasson and will see you again, some time some where
Hi Jim,
glad to see that also our successor tour has reat weather. I am, however, very jaleous that the emperor penguin did not arrive in the tour before.
Thanks for all your support during the last tour. Please share these thanks with your expedition team mates. I will surely follow your way.
As you may remember I am now in Brazil where I saw fregate birds and Dolphins. You obviously sharpened my eyes

Bus Tour Guiding:

“The tour guide showed his enthusiasm for all things Irish. We had a fantastic day and would recommend your company to others” Bob & Cheryl Latulippe USA

“That brings me to our guide, who was phenominal. He was charming and could answer any of our questions. He knew so many interesting things to point out and was humorous as well. I can't say enough good about him and hope that he has a great future with your company. He is worth whatever you pay him and more.” Fredrica McCouan USA

“The tour guide Jim was excellent, plenty of information given in a lighthearted manner, a lovely man with a very warm personality, a credit to your company” Charlie & Doreen Fox UK

“Jim was very knowledgeable about the history of Ireland. He had a friendly disposition and we felt that we could ask both him and Eleanor questions without feeling patronised.” Trisha Chambers UK

“ - And finally and most importantly your tour guide Jim Wilson (and assistant Eleanor Dwyer)…tour guide Jim was outstanding and the assistant was very helpful throughout the tour.” Bob Palombo USA
