    Sean’s enthusiasm and positivity was infectious. He set the tone for the whole trip and everybody on the tour followed his lead, great time, great sights although I would have liked more chances to have meal choices that reflected the country such as Irish Stew or lamb. Would love to do another trip with him as the tour director. Having said that felt that the high tea was disappointing as was the Celtic roots show. On the plus side the Irish stables were fascinating as was the Scottish night in Edinburgh. The scenery was magnificent and the pace of the trip was perfect.

    Traveled with group of 36 fun people, who were eager to see and do and learn of Ireland and Scotland. The bus was roomy and comfortable. Michel was fantastic with his knowledge of both countries. He was organized and funny and made the trip wonderful. Jerry our bus driver was tops. I was surprised that the food was so good for the included meals. The hotels were great. The people of Ireland and Scotland were lovely to us travelers - very welcoming. Great trip. Thanks, INSIGHT..

    My husband and I just returned from our very first coach tour and our first time visiting Ireland and Scotland. The tour name was The Best of Ireland and Scotland with Insight Vacations, August 22 to September 4, 2017. We had the privilege of being guided by Robert Joyce “Robbie”, his knowledge of the area and its history is exceptional, great storyteller, kind-hearted and awesome sense of humour. Robbie went out of his way to make our journey a memorable one by juggling the itinerary slightly around the weather so we could enjoy our tours to the maximum. For example, our ride on-board a local jaunting car (horse drawn carriage) through Killarney National Park in the morning, with blue skies, majestic views of the mountains, placid lakes and stunning views of Ross Castle, followed by a tour of Ring of Kerry where we stopped to take in the views of the Upper Lake and surrounding area, which made for better photos. Definitely one of the highlights for me. Robbie is among the major reasons we will always treasure our journey through Ireland and Scotland and we hope to travel with him again in the future. Ana
