Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The trip was amazing. Our tour guide, Paul, was wonderful. We would love to do another trip with him. We wish there would have been a little more time for some sights such as Blarney Stone. Once you stood in the line for 45+ minutes there was not time for much else. Overall, however, we loved it all.
The tour guide, Camile, and the driver John were wonderful. The knowledge of Ireland that she provided was excellent. I would book with her again. Thank you.
Guide was very good, informative. The Apollo Centrum in Amere was not very good: dirty floors, needed more light. Staff seemed new and not used to questions.
