To be very frank, I wrote to few different companies and your response was very quick and I knew you had understood me. The itinerary that you shared with me was exciting, although now I understand that there is lot more to discover of your beautiful country.

Maurice: we all loved him. His humour, knowledge and love for Ireland really made this trip unforgettable. Please believe me when I say, we have never met or come across a guide with such intense knowledge and passion, which made it so much more enjoyable.

We loved our tour of Ireland with Maurice! He is so very entertaining and has a wealth of knowledge about the history, geography, and traditions of Ireland. He took us to many places that were not on the average tour itinerary and had wonderful stories everywhere we went.

We would recommend Maurice and Small Escorted Tours to anyone planning a trip to Ireland.

Thank you very much for your planning and organization of our tour. It was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken.

Our trip went very well and Maurice did a superb job and was most gracious and a great Irish history teacher.

Know that Frank Higgins played a role with our trip (eg Ballycotton) and will have a Mass said for him here in the states.

Thanks, hope we can repeat with Maurice in a year or 2.

Best regards,



We had a great time! Ireland is so beautiful. Maurice took excellent care of us.

Next time we’ll have to go to Galway!

Hi Anne,

We are just finishing dinner in NY waiting for our next flight to home.

Maurice was wonderful, he truly made our trip! We couldn’t have asked for someone more knowledgeable or more in love with the country, he is a blessing and not just because he drove the lighthouse road 12 times in 2 days!

Thanks to you all for coordinating this trip of a lifetime for our family!

We have just returned from our trip, and I wanted to thank you for helping making it as amazing as it was. Maurice was a wonderful guide, so knowledgeable and funny. His driving was fantastic, and we were able to sit back and enjoy the scenery

Frank took very good care of us – my only complaint was that he didn’t share the winner of first race, which paid him quite well. ¬†We had a grand time- Thanks- Bill

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know what a fabulous time we had. The planning was impeccable and our hotels were really something out of the fairy tales – what a treat. And we all enjoyed Erik so very much. He was so generous with his information, his time and knowledge and was just so kind.

Absolutely outstanding tour. Many thanks for your efforts in pulling it together. Erik was an excellent driver and tour guide; we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

I have to tell you that the tour we experienced as put together by you, Anne and Margaret was nothing short of excellent. The agenda and its flexibility, the choice of venues, the pacing, the accommodations and the little side touches were very impressive. And what can I say about Erik? It is tough to begin to explain what he contributed to our Ireland experience. He epitomized the fun loving, friendly, and out-going reputation that the Irish so justly deserve.

If you need any references in the future, feel free to use us. We’ll always fondly remember our time in Ireland.

Just want to thank you for making sure we were well cared for in Ireland. Frank is a gem, and we really enjoyed the time we spent together. He is a true professional and more than that, he gave my daughter a great experience and she will always remember that.

Best, Jim
