Dublin tour guide tells all about making an epic tour of the city

“It becomes a theater on wheels”

Rebecca and Brendan were joined by DoDublin tour guide John McGuirk AKA Johnny Mack on 98FM’s Big Breakfast this morning.

He came to give the guys some advice before their open-top bus tour this Thursday, June 16.

Rebecca and Brendan will battle it out to see who knows Dublin best, with listeners voting on the tour to decide the winner.

A self-confessed history buff, Johnny Mack took the plunge to become a tour guide seven years ago, after many years driving buses around the city and county.

On what makes a good tour guide, Johnny said: “You have to be good with people, you have to be a good listener.

“You have to be able to entertain and interact with your passengers…when you go around it becomes a theater on wheels.”

Johnny said he would soon ask Rebecca and Brendan for any historical details on the tour – hope they did their homework!

“You learn something new every day,” Johnny said. “There are so many hidden things in the city.”
