Join Tour Directors Aonghus and Ali as they talk about all things Ireland and UK. Learn about their favorite places to visit, best things to do, and what life is like in both Ireland and the UK.
Hi, my name is Aonghus. I was born in Dublin, Ireland. I attended a Gaelic-speaking secondary school and then studied Politics and Economics at Trinity College Dublin. I was fortunate to get work following my passion of acting on a TV show on a Gaelic TV channel in Galway for 4 years. I moved to the UK and studied acting for 2 years, before moving to the big city of London - where I now live (in the trendy East End)! In London, I started to work with EF Go Ahead Tours and I’ve enjoyed traveling and meeting new people along the way. I love to travel around the UK, Ireland and to the great European capitals of Paris and Rome.
Hi! My name is Ali (or Alison) and I am from the UK! I live in Brighton, on the 'sunny' south coast of England, but grew up just outside London. Since I was young, I have always been fascinated by different cultures and their history. In school, I specialised in languages - for me it was a way to get under the skin of a country and meet people! French and German initially, but later Italian and Spanish through work. In my twenties, I took off on a big world trip, working and living in different countries. It was truly a life-changing experience. Upon returning home, a friend introduced me to EF and it changed my life - Tour Directing is the perfect job! What could be better than introducing other people to the places and cultures that I love so much, sharing my knowledge and passion with them, and seeing them experience new things for the first time? It is a privilege to be able to help people fulfil their travel dreams! Away from work, one of my favourite places to spend time is in the mountains - hiking and skiing. The wonderful thing about travel, is that you never stop learning. I can't wait to be your companion in your European adventure - come and explore with me!
