    We had 3 smokers in our group and they smoked right before boarding at every stop, which made the air in the bus stinky and hard to breathe in. There’s no window in the bus and I had a very difficult time with headaches and sore throats all through the trip. Expected to enjoy fresh air, but my entire trip was gasping for a fresh air.

    Our experience of the tour was greatly enhanced by our Driver/Guide Liam McCauley, he was a careful, competent driver which is essential of course, but he was able to provide us with lot of historical information which really helped us to understand the local culture. He clearly knew the areas he took us to and where to find edible seaweeds, such as carrigan moss and dulse. (as requested). He taught us how to make a St.Brigid's cross. He also took us to fascinating quaint places serving delicious lunches. He was very helpful and good at managing the group.

    The best tour of Ireland I have ever done. Liam was very personable and greatly endeared himself to our group with his extra attention to detail and willingness to alter the itinerary to meet everyone's needs/desires while working around a very difficult storm. We were all very pleased with the beautiful scenery, architecture, religious monuments, farm animals, etc, as well as his ability to ensure our safety during exceptionally high winds that caused accidents, blocked roads and downed trees. His love of Ireland, poetry and the beauty found in nature is now instilled in all of us and has left us hungering for more. During a medical emergency he displayed exceptional knowledge, even temperament and imparted a genuine sense of kindness and concern. He was able to take care of all members while ensuring the proper treatment of the individual involved. I can't say enough about him. He deserves your highest accolade.

    It was a pity that I cannot rate this tour as excellent. I am told that Northern Ireland is beautiful (but we raced past the mountains of Mourne) and that Belfast is an amazing city. In Belfast our Black Cab tour took us to the two political sectors of the city. We saw nothing of the attractive buildings. This was followed up by Londonderry where the Tour of the Walls was led by a very partisan guide and included an unadvertised visit to Bogside, this overran leaving next to no time to see the beautiful Guild Hall. Then we were rushed to a very late lunch and on to Giants Causeway, which was exceptional. From that point the tour was excellent, if a bit rushed and often with too little time at points of interest and lunch breaks. Our guide had an obvious interest in, and knowledge of, the history of Ireland. The vehicle, though ideally sized for the Irish roads, offered a very hard ride with somewhat limited legroom. Several passengers had motion sickness. The bed and breakfast accommodation was excellent. Jamie was an excellent guide who interacted with all the group. At the end we were informed that we were expected to tip the driver 10% of the tour cost. Apparently, the driver/guide is paid very little, so the tips ensure that he has a living wage. We really feel that a tip is a voluntary contribution and not an hidden extra cost.
    Rabbie's Tours commented on this review
    Hi Iris, There are so many interesting sites to cover that we do need to limit the time at each, but we're sorry that you felt rushed as times. The tour should serve as an overview of the area and we're glad that you enjoyed it overall and that you were impressed with your guide, Jamie. Whoever informed you that you were expected to tip the guide was mistaken and I'm really sorry to hear that you felt pressured in this way. We completely agree that tips should be voluntary and at your discretion. Our guides are paid a fair wage and though I'm sure they'd all appreciate tips - they certainly to not expect or rely on these! Thanks for your feedback, Aimee
