Reviews

Unfortunately, my review for this trip is 2 stars and I’ve conveyed my complaints to Mai on several emails. This trip did not live up to the expectations and was very disappointing when it comes to the itinerary changes, expectations, health and safety, overall costs, and what we received for the costs. The trip that was conveyed was not what I received. That’s unfortunate and I expect this review to be removed from the site.

The trip was absolutely fantastic! The hotels had that Old World feel and we situated close to the center of towns so there was plenty to do. The scheduled events were plentiful but not so much you felt rushed. Our guide Frank was the best! His unique experience of life as an Irishman made for a great perspective on the culture and character of this great land. Everyone was so pleasant. I definitely recommend an Irish tour of your own.
