He told us stories about the history of all the places we visited and if he didn't know.....well he made up something that sounded good.

    This trip was very hectic but with all we got to see in 9 days it has to be. Included meals were delicious with generous portions. Ally, our tour guide was patient, funny and knew what she's was talking about because she lives there and knows the history of what she's explaining along the way. Wonderful sites.

    Had a stop in Knock to visit a shrine. I feel the time would have been more useful to look in Galway. We only had an hour.....not near enough. The bus was very comfortable. The guide was informative but not very personable. The first hotel we stayed at in Dublin, the Regency, was not so good. My daughter got 11 bug bites. They changed our room but nothing else. The least they could have done was get some calamine lotion.

    The Cosmos trip to Ireland was excellent, the guide, the transportation, and the accomodations are all exceedimg my expectations. The only bad experience I had was that I shared a room with an American woman from Ohio who had stolen 100 euro from my wallet at the end of the trip.

He told us stories about the history of all the places we visited and if he didn't know.....well he made up something that sounded good. Our bus driver what can I say Mags was the ultimate bus driver very safe and friendly. Some of the places we visited had very narrow and winding streets I myself wouldn't have attempted driving there in a car let alone a motor coach but our Mags got us through without even batting an eyelid. The only thing that disappointed us was the night before our Ring of Kerry day trip there was an excess of rain which damaged some of the roads in the area which stopped us from doing the trip but you cannot predict what mother nature will dish up. But other than that I would highly recommend this trip and the optional tours Ireland is a very beautiful and historical part of the world and the locals also are very nice and friendly. Great trip. Great crew, and an awesome guide and driver.

      TourRadar is fantastic as several major companies are on one web site. Plus I can streamline my selection to a day, month and destination, This is now my quick go to for an overview of possible trips. Rebate as always welcomed as I need to save a much as I can for my next trip. Also love that conversations I've had with the agents are recorded and I can see the transcripts. Very well done. Yes I would definetely recommend TourRadar.
