Michael "Our first time visiting Ireland. This 7 day trip gave us a very nice introduction to the Irish Republic (South). I note this tour did not venture into Northern Ireland. The coach was clean, comfortable and each days journey was of a reasonable distance. Our driver, Gary, was courteous, professional, pleasant and most capable. We never felt we were in the bus too long. I must mention our guide Stua..."

    Visiting Ireland is an unforgettable experience! I enjoyed the spectacular sceneries, the food and the music. Our tour guide Hugh was awesome, immersed in Ireland's culture and History. He always made sure we were ok during the journey and the driver Don was also helpful and well mannered. I cannot fault this tour. Everday I think of the beautiful memories I had in Ireland and its now a bitter sweet when I listen to Irish music. I highly recommend Globus Tours.

    Our first time visiting Ireland. This 7 day trip gave us a very nice introduction to the Irish Republic (South). I note this tour did not venture into Northern Ireland. The coach was clean, comfortable and each days journey was of a reasonable distance. Our driver, Gary, was courteous, professional, pleasant and most capable. We never felt we were in the bus too long. I must mention our guide Stuart (could be Stewart) was excellent. He gave us clear instructions daily regarding our schedules. Repeated critical times which I believe helped our group stay on time in almost every occasion. During our drives Stuart would offer comments and stories about Ireland as well as the areas we visited and passed through. Paused at the appropriate time and resumed again appropriately. The content, delivery, intonations and timing were well polished and appreciated. Accomodations were always clean and well appointed save two which did not have air conditioning (nor fans). Ennis - Temple Gate Hotel and Waterford - Hotel Granville. Understood that Irelands climate rarely calls for air conditioning yet fans would have saved the day and afforded a restful nights sleep. Apparently our week had excessive temperatures. For Ireland perhaps yet again, simply a room fan of some sort would have made this a non-issue. Meals were always a pleasure with something for everyone. I must say the service at Hotel Granville in Waterford was exceptional. Included excursions were delightful and enjoyable. Optional excursions were well spaced and enjoyable.? I look forward to our next Globus excursion.

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
