Approved Tourist Guides of Ireland Blog
Welcome to our Blog: We are ATGI, The Approved Tourist Guides of Ireland and proudly so. When you book one of our members, you don't just simply book a Guide, all of our members are trained to the highest standard, qualfied and fully insured. But we are so much more than that. We are 350 members, speak 19 languages between us, come from different countries but we are all united by the passion in what we do, the love of Ireland and all things Irish. Each and every one of us will bring you a very unique approach to your tour. It does not matter if you are travelling with a group, by yourself, if you are here on an educational tour or on your honeymoon, we help you make your trip outstanding.
Here, you have the chance to get to know us a from a different side, we tell you what we do when we are not on tour, or show you how we make the tours more interesting. From food foraging, to Buttermaking, creating beautiful art to finding undiscovered sights in the remotest part of Ireland. We are not a guide book or an app. We are Tourist Guides, we are ATGI.
