Megan "The guide was wonderful- very nice and informative. The trip itself fell a little short. I wish we could have spent more than 45 minutes in some of the places we visited, especially because we had to eat lunch during that time, as well as try to sight see for the remaining 10 minutes we had. Everything felt very rushed and extremely touristy. I was hoping to just be dropped off in a town for 24 ho..."

    Generally, our tour was made by Jordana Ubalti, our guide - she is an excellent and knowledgeable guide and very nice person. The itinerary was also good though I would change timing a bit. For example, one need more time to investigate castles and, probably, less free time, especially during evenings. Hotels were good but sometime their location is not optimal - Ballbridge hotel is located too far from the center of Dublin and, having free time after bus tour in Dublin, it took too long time to get to the center and back. Meals were great, just slow sometimes. I could not say it is the Trafalgar's fault but here is definitely some room to improve. Overall, it was a great tour. Thanks to Jordana again.

    My fiance and I went on the Irish Highlights tour in October 2016! It was the most incredible tour. Our tour guide and bus driver were amazing and the friends we made along the way were fantastic. All hotels, meals and sight seeing destinations were perfect. We did not feel rushed one bit and we were able to relax and have our own time as well. Trafalgar representatives were there to help and answer any questions along the way. We will certainly be going back to Ireland and using Trafalgar tours again.

    Ireland was a phenomenal experience. Not just for the scenic beauty but for the people who made it all the more enjoyable. Our director and driver were both top class people with huge amount of knowledge and plent of hospitality and humour. Although I would have loved to have been able to go on a longer tour I feel as though we covered everything that was essential in order to appreciate Ireland’s charm. All in all it was a comfortable, jolly and unforgettable experience.

    Fun trip, unfortunately the weather wasn't very cooperative (Hurricane Ophelia and other rain) but we saw interesting places, our guide, Allie, was excellent and really gives a lot of history and side notes that make the bus rides much better and prepares us for what we are going to see. Our driver, Stevie, did a great job on the tiny roads and in the heavy wind.

    Loved loved loved Ireland. The tour itself was okay! The itinerary was a little rushed, but for last minute solo trip to Ireland it was the easiest way for me to get around. The guide was nice and very knowledgeable, but I wish she was more personable. She didn't make much of an effort to get to know many of us, which I think is an essential role for a tour guide so that they can better recommend activities more tailored to what we like. The tour guests vary in ages. I was not unhappy with the tour by any means, but I have been on other tours in other parts of the world that I thought were better.

Everything felt very rushed and extremely touristy. I was hoping to just be dropped off in a town for 24 hours and explore the place on my own, but this was not the case. There is very limited free time, as most of the activities are done as a group. A lot of people like that, but it's not for me. I think I just picked the wrong tour for my liking.
