    My sister and I went on this tour in 2008, we could not find fault with any part of the 2 weeks. We would recommend Trafalgar to everyone.

    This was the vacation of a lifetime. It was totally stress free. We didn't have to worry about a thing except getting on the bus. Our travel director was the best. He was so organized, knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw more in 15 days than we would have seen in 5-6 weeks on our own. Aside from seeing all the places on our dream list, we had the opportunity to experience other things that we never would have found on our own. To top it off we shared all this with a wonderful group of people. So many laughs and memories. I am ready to go again!

We saw more of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland in 15 days than we could have seen in 5-6 weeks on our own, and we were able to see and do things that we never would have found without Scott and Trafalgar. To top it off, we did it all with 40 other wonderful people that we were able to share laughs and experiences with. Many of us are keeping in touch. Reminiscing is Stage Two fun, and we have a large group in which to reminisce with. Best memories ever and I cannot wait to do another trip.

    This was a fast paced tour but we saw SO much and we never would have been able to do that on our own. Our tour director, Mhairie MacLaren was the best!!! Bus drivers were awesome and accommodations were great. I would take a Trafalgar tour again...but if you want a slower pace, look at the "at leisure" tours. We had a great time!
