    EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND Raymond was our tour guide and he was to say the least unbelievable he was very knowledgeable about all the spots we went to and made the trip very pleasant I would book another trip just on his knowledge alone can’t say enough about the whole Experience I wish I would’ve brought a recorder with me so I can listen to the trip again thank you so much Raymond Also we had a very small group and everybody there was very personable it was great meeting everybody from the different places that they lived or went to school at

    We had a great time with the bus driver/guide Alan. His information and skills where a big part of making it an adventure to remember!

    The Cliffs of Moher represent an icon of the Western Irish landscape. Even when the weather is not great the view along the cliffs is impressive and worth seeing. The only downside is that it is very crowded with tourists, and a bit pricey to park in the visitors lot. Still, well worth a visit!

    Demora muito. Vc perde o dia e aproveita muito pouco. Poderia ter gasto conhecendo outras atrações de Dublin.

    Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un très agréable soleil qui nous a accompagné tout le long du voyage. La journée fût très sympathique, nous en avons pris plein les yeux. Seul bémol : pas de toilettes dans le bus. Mais nous recommandons.

    The tour was fine...the area coverage was very good. What I did not quite like was the constant talking of the guide Peter. He tried to be engaging, but was too agressive. The place where they took us for lunch was not good and overpriced. But they insisted on that restaurant.

    Everything was perfect. John was a perfect guide/driver, funny storyteller. He literally didn't stop talking for 3-4hours, which you might think could be annoying. Quite the opposite. Detailed, historical and witty comments along the whole way made this trip a lot better. He deserves a pay rise for a 3 tour drivers definitely 🙌😎 Definitely would recommend. Great stops along the way. Just keep your fingers crossed as the weather can be tricky. Five star experience.
