    Remi was wonderful, had some awesome slideshow presentations and facts for us whilst we were on the bus so we could find out more about where we were going. He did his best to find out the answers to any questions we might've had. Overall just great.

    Megs was amazing, she made everything fun, was a pool of knowledge but it felt like you just had another tour buddy. Couldn’t have had a better tour guide.

    I loved Ireland, loved the people I travelled with and our tour guide Megs was wonderful, friendly and informative. Made a few friends for life on that tour and I still consider her to be one of them.

    The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
