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

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.

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.
