"I would like to extend a hearty thank you for one of the best vacations I have ever had! The group was blessed with a brand new bus, wonderful weather, and the best possible bus driver/tour guide. Our driver added so much to the trip with his stories, wit and knowledge about his country. He was a true professional who accommodated our every wish and concern, and his pride in his country was very apparent. Anyone travelling to Ireland would be lucky to have him driving their bus."
