Small Escorted Tours was the perfect solution to our travel dilemma: how to see the best of Ireland without being confined to a tour bus or attempting to drive on the left-hand side of the road. Our trip, including family members from 47 to 81, was a great success.
We were, ultimately, most grateful for the luxury of following our own itinerary – one geared to our tastes and enthusiasms…
The broad knowledge, keen insights and engaging personality of our guide/driver kept us charmed, interested and often laughing throughout the tour. An unscheduled side trip, into the depths of the Burren to visit the marvelous garden of the Burren Perfumery, is just one example of the benefits of a customized service. No tour bus could ever have accommodated such an individual interest or negotiated those very narrow roads.
You know you’ve had a wonderful time when a dozen experiences, such as this one, vie in your mind for highlight of the trip, and that was the happy predicament in which we found ourselves.
We couldn’t have been more pleased with our accommodations, but were, ultimately, most grateful for the luxury of following our own itinerary – one geared to our tastes and enthusiasms, rather than the standard tourist fare. It made all the difference in providing us with many memories to cherish and recount.
Small Escorted Tours will give you value for money and a chance to learn about the real Ireland of yesterday and today, instead of merely the usual kitschy stereotypes. I recommend them highly.
