    It was the first time I ever took a tour & I would book another one with them tomorrow, no today if I could . We had a good group, Jimmy our guide was the best, went out of his way to please. Ireland is a magical country & this was a great way to see it.

    Did a 7 day tour around Ireland and it was amazing! I would highly recommend this small group tour! Jimmy, our tour guide, was excellent. Jimmy was able to accommodate everyone’s needs. All the B&B’s we stayed in were clean and friendly. I hope to be able to use this tour group again.

    Where do I begin? Let's start with our tour guide Shauna not only is she a wealth of information about the history, culture, and traditions of Ireland, but also like the rest of the natives extremely friendly very helpful and always went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience possible. She honestly made it feel like we were on a road trip with a friend from Ireland. The fact that she drove a van with 8 people thru the tiny streets of Ireland with such confidence and focus and managed to keep up a conversation the entire time definitely take's a certain kind of personality trait. To be honest when I booked this small tour I was very nervous about the places we would stay and who would be guiding us but I can say that for sure I would never do another larger tour again (like I did the previous year in Italy), this by far surpassed that vacation and my go to will be with the Overland Tour company. The best analogy I can think of is when you find a great hair stylist you stick with her and never shop around!! All of the B&B's we stayed at the hosts were awesome and the rooms great (clean, right size, and the breakfast's were all good). The variety of activities that we had booked were not too extreme but also kept us involved and weren't too conservative. The only complaint I could possibly have is that I didn't have enough time to explore more of the smaller towns throughout but that just means I will have to return and trust me that is 100% fine by me and definitely in the near future. I am going to recommend this company to any one that I know that is planning on a trip to Ireland.

    This tour visits some wonderful towns that have great restaurants, pubs, activities and/or shopping. The accommodations were generally excellent, quiet, comfortable and good breakfasts. The tour guides on this tour don't talk about the towns much and you can't hear in the back seat of the van. The guide was fun, wanted to ensure that we had a great experience and helpful. The transport was a 9 passenger van that had poor visibility, seats were uncomfortable and bouncy in the back. The activities were wonderful. Loved the biking, hiking and kayaking.

    Overall, great tour! We were a group of two couples, two solo travellers and a mom/daughter duo. The itinerary was well-planned with tours/activities but also time to rest and explore on your own. Our guide was knowledgeable and accomodating . Each day didn't start too early (~9 am). The accommodations were comfortable and clean.

    Awesome tour of Ireland! I really liked kayaking in Dingle Bay and appreciated the small group. Reinier our tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I loved the whiskey tasting and the free time in each city. We were always given really great recommendations for food in the area! I will for be booking other tours with Overland in the near future!
