Edwin C. deGroat April 2011
Our relationship with you began in 1999 when you brought us to many locations in Ireland during our biennial international tour to England and Ireland. Along the way you informed us of points of interest with knowledgeable aplomb and interesting anecdotes. Of great importance was on the final night in Dublin when you prevented a possible tragic accident to one of our students by sounding your horn as you saw an oncoming automobile. I remain indebted to you for your quick action.
Our last trip was also under your guidance. Again your ability to help us transportation our equipment and luggage and be flexible to our needs was greatly appreciated. Also my son and wife thank you deeply for taking them to Kilkenny after leaving the rest of us at the airport. Your thoughtfulness in arranging accommodation for them is another indication of your genuine concern for others.
Finally, when Solisti look forward to traveling again to Ireland, you can rest assured that I will be calling you early to request that you take care of us again during our visit. You have not only become our friend professionally but someone we consider a personal friend.
We were fortunate to hire Ireland Escorted last October. I had been to Ireland twice before but saw more of the country and learned more about its history with our guide and driver than on the previous trips.
His friendly, easy-going personality made the trip very pleasant. He has a huge fund of knowledge about Ireland. He enthusiastically answered all of our questions, and his jokes and stories kept us laughing along the way. He took us to good restaurants and fun pubs, and the B&Bs were all comfortable and interesting.
I have very happy recollections of our tour and would highly recommend Ireland Escorted to anyone visiting Ireland. Taking advantage of their knowledge and professionalism will make for a wonderful Irish experience.
