We made it home and I am missing Ireland. I play my new Irish CDs every day. Maurice was a wonderful host and we catch ourselves repeating his little “sayings”. I would truly love to return and perhaps concentrate on a smaller area. We will be in touch. Thank you for your kindness and the meal. It was greatly appreciated.

Our memories shall be treasured.

I would highly recommend Small Escorted Tours of Ireland. They were great helping us plan our trip, and we exchanged lots of emails, I had asked for four star hotels and B&Bs, and they all were wonderful.

Our guide, Maurice, was excellent. He gave us so much history, jokes, and even little Gaelic lessons. We felt safe and were able to enjoy all the beautiful scenery in comfort.

Thanks again for a great trip. Michael was an excellent tour guide who
added great history and personal experiences to every town.

Hi all

Just to let you know we loved every bit of our trip. Maurice was wonderful. 1500 miles and 1500 jokes. He was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. Thanks for a wonderful memory.

Just returned from a week long tour with this company and they are terrific. It is a small, family-run business and during the pre-trip planning, I communicated with all three members of the company and they were great to deal with.

You will be happy with this tour company.

We and our friends who traveled with us were thrilled with the service and planning of Small Escorted Tours.  It is a small, family-run business who seems very committed to pleasing their clients.  Sean, Anne, and Margaret all were involved in communicating with us during the planning phase.  Frank was a superbly knowledgeable driver/guide who squeezed in everything possible during our allotted days.  This is the way to see Ireland, worth every penny.  And however limited your time may be, don’t miss Dingle and the superb Pax House if available.  We will happily use Small Escorted Tours of Ireland again when we hopefully return.

We had a wonderful time and you couldn’t have assigned a better guide than Frank! He has a depth of historical knowledge that is beyond all guide books. And for a bonus, he enchanted us with his knowledge of Irish literature and poems.

I’ll certainly recommend your agency to anyone contemplating a tour such as ours!

Thank you again

The trip was excellent and all of the travelers have expressed a desire to return.

As we stood at the Cliffs, I thought again, as I always do when I am there staring out at the Atlantic ocean toward America, of my grandparents’ courage …. to give up their family, to leave knowing they would never again see their family or friends – to pursue another option, another path – what extraordinarily strong & tough people all of these immigrants must have been.

I anticipated the beauty of the land, the kindness of the Irish people and the quality of your drink – it was pleasing to see all of the “newcomers” reactions to these characteristics – a deep appreciation & a satisfaction – I am sure we will be back again – Maurice was superb, and your company’s performance was flawless, as usual.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time. Everything was great. We loved Frank. Boy, he kept us hopping! Our friends over here are going to be tortured with stories and pictures forever. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

If we ever return to Ireland, we will gladly use Small Escorted Tours again. We will be happy to recommend you to all our friends who wish to visit. Also, if you are ever in the Alabama area, we would love to show you around, Frank too.

Have a great day,

We just returned from an amazing week – family of 4 plus my mom, ages 10 – 70. There is no way this trip would have been nearly as good had we not traveled with them. They facilitated what I keep referring to and remembering as the trip of a lifetime.

Our guide was phenomenal, better than I could have imagined. He educated, entertained and made sure not a moment was wasted. All with keeping us stress free, comfortable and relaxed. Booking with them was the smartest thing we have ever done when planning a trip.
