Michael Cooper

Derry Citys first Blue Badge Guide, double graduate in Irish History and Politics, published author, member of the local government in Derry and TripAdvisor Hall of Fame member.

Just returned from a 12 day tour of Ireland & Northern Ireland (or the North), with overnights in Dublin, Belfast, Derry & Galway. My partner Rebecca and I were hosts on a Luther College (American college located in Decorah, IA USA) alumni/friends tour with 24 travelers. Michael was our guide throughout the trip and was excellent. He was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and funny. This was my 7th group trip to Ireland, the other 6 with students, but first with Michael as the guide and I learned so much. Our group age ranged from 40 to almost 80 and Michael connected with all. Highest recommendation.
