    Martina, was a fabulous guide. provided great insight to country history and locations visited.

    By Lynne M on Aug 25, 2019

    It was fast moving but did everything and more. Lenny tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun. Ran a tight ship but kept everyone focused on what each day activities. Lenny spent so much time preparing and ensuring that our special trip was more then we expected. He is a wealth of information and Gate 1 are very lucky to have him. Best tour ever!

    By Kathleen S on Aug 19, 2019

    I want to complement our wonderful tour guide. Her name is Martina. She was so interesting and told us all about Ireland, the country and all its people. She ran everything so well and made sure that we were all taken care of so well. She was so good at getting to know everyones names and where everyone was from. I would love to have her for any tour I take with Gate 1. Also our driver was Mike. I do not know his last name but he was wonderful. He is an unbelievable driver on those terrible narrow roads. We always felt we were in very capable hands. These two are both wonderful people and I would travel with them again anywhere.

    We would have appreciated more local guides with more explanations of the historical background of the sites visited.
