      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.

      Hi Shannon, We are sorry that the trip did not live up to your expectations. As I explained to you in our email exchange, we have stated on our WeTravel itinerary, each days itinerary is subject to change depending on weather and other things. I know that the tour guide decided to change a few things around because of weather, and you did not see some places that you wanted. This could not be avoided. We have had great comments from many of the other people in the group.

      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.
