The tour was excellent. It was the highlight of 2022 for us.
2 out of 4 hotels were very good two were not
Was a great trip, would go again. Our tour director was awesome and the driver was very friendly and helpful.
Our tour director (Bob) and driver (Joe)) we're truly outstanding. The itinerary was great. Highly recommend.
Best tour ever. Hotels were wonderful, guide and busdriver were exceptional.
Hotels were not in tourist friendly locations, there was not much walking distance. Many other people on the tour agreed that Gate 1 has better hotels locations and better tour overall
Enjoyed the North of Ireland trip very much. Well organized, from the time of booking to the end everyone involved was a joy to work with.
wonderful trip - a bonus was that much of the travel in the coach was not on the motorway, so we saw areas we had not seen before
