Beautiful tour Jimmy. You’re a great story teller. We’d love to follow this tour with a light (some sun), but it all added to an eerie and wonderful visit to see some great Celtic crosses. Thank you!

Jimmy was fantastic. He made us feel so welcome, greeting almost every new tour member by name as they signed in. He was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate. Clearly a very kind soul, even pausing quickly to make two young children who accidentally stepped into frame feel welcome and very special - "say hello to the world!" I'll definitely be joining a tour of his again!
