Amazing experience, well paced and Kevin and Marko made the trip special. This was my first day trip with a tour group on a coach bus and I was a bit hesitant to do it. But I got recommendations from friends who went on prior tours. So I decided to give it a try. This tour was top rated online. Kevin, our guide and Marko, our driver were great. Kevin gave us just enough knowledge and stories about the areas we were driving through or visiting that it didn’t seem overwhelming, just the right amount. It was a relaxing trip and both Kevin and Marko were friendly, approachable and helpful. The sites were a good variety to visit. The Cliffs of Moher was my favorite site - just breathtaking! As a solo traveler, I loved how they gave us a good amount of time to explore despite the site being filled with a lot of tourists. They also made sure to spread out the drive with rest stop/food/bathroom breaks to make the long day trip comfortable and bearable. Highly recommend for travelers!

Such a fun day! We lucked out with a hot, sunny day! The cliffs were gorgeous, the lunch spot had awesome food, Bunratty was fun-I enjoyed the bunratty park more-but it was great we got freedom to do both. We had enough time at all the stops-the bus was comfortable! Our guide Dave was awesome! So funny, lots of great history! Our bus driver Marko drives like a champ. Great day, well worth the money!

Sean (our tour guide) and Michael (driver) were fantastic! They were a joy to be around, very knowledgeable about the places that we visited and also was helpful in suggestions places to dine, so far every recommendation has been awesome! Definitely will book another tour when we come back.

Amazing. Each stop was so beautiful and educational. I definitely recommend doing this tour. The castle and small town of Ennis was unbelievable and of course so were the cliffs!

This tour was excellent, and the guide was great, definitely recommend!!
