Our itinerary was exactly as explained in the description. Once we arrived, our tour guide, John, was absolutely outstanding. He was funny, knowledgeable, and showed us things that weren't on the listed itinerary but we're on the route. Fabulous trip!! Would absolutely recommend this one.

Did Ireland pub tour. Great tour,great tour guide. Learned a lot of Irish history plus had a lot of fun.

Amazing value and excellent accommodations consistent with daily tour itinerary following theme of tour.

The tour director/bus driver was professional and welcoming to all the guests.

Very disappointed with what was called a pub tour. We only spent two nights dining in a pub with the group. Every other time we ate dinner at the hotel and went our own way afterwards. That was not the way a pub tour was described to me. I thought we would be doing more as a group and spend more time in pubs listening to music and having dinner there and mingling more with the local poeple, getting to know their culture. Very disappointed.

A wonderful tour! Great fun, excellent choice of activities, and for the most part, top notch accommodations and meals. I highly recommend this tour, and hope you get our awesome tour director, Johnny. His stories and jokes livened up our days! My only concern was that as Canadians, we didn't receive our tour packages in advance, so I felt less prepared than others ( ie backpack, tax card, etc) .

Tour and booking was great. Only problem is they should inform you of a time table before hand.

We took the Irish Pub Tour and it was FANTASTIC!!! We visited interesting places, saw some traditional tourist places and some cool, out of the way sites, and had a pint in some of the best bars in the world at the end of the day. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy Ireland and all the wonderful spirits produced there. Our bus driver was amazing - he was knowledgeable about Irish history and folklore, the sites and places we went to see, and was a wealth of information on where to get great food and drink in every town and city we visited. He was funny and helpful when needed, and he took care of everyone. We were on time for everything and enjoyed him tremendously. C.I.E. provided us with a great trip and I would definitely book with them again. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Ireland!
