    Lots of driving the first day and could have spent more time at the Cliffs of Moher, 40 minutes was not that much. Could have been on the second day of the trip maybe, and do north of Galway bay on day 1. Lunch options at Kylemore Abbey are limited and was hoping for more than cafeteria food. There was a town just down the road with pubs and what seemed like more options and less people. All in all, good trip, nice way to see Ireland in 3 days. Obviously could have used more.

    Our guide wa a very good driver but offered very little information on the highlights of the trip. A bit more knowledge would be very useful. Also more time at some stops like the national park is needed to see/do anything.

Also the B&B setup by Rabbies' was fantastic, the host was friendly and the food delicious. We booked a tour because we weren't sure where to go or what to do in Ireland, the 3 day tour allowed us to see more than we would have on our own, and the guide made sure we learned about what it was we were seeing and about Ireland. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family, and would book another tour.

    Excellent tour, especially liked the small group, bus very comfortable. The stops were very interesting, and time spent at each stop was good. We were blessed by warm sunny days. Morris the tour guide was very good, gave us just the right amount of information, and played music (irish musicians) the rest of the time.

    Brilliant tour today. Andrew was our driver with a wealth of knowledge. Loch Lomond, Luss, Glencoe, Oban and Inveraray. Weather was perfect for this time of year. Thank you once again for an amazing trip.
