Wonderful personal service and guide, Paul. I would use them over and over again!!! They went above and beyond the descriptions and my expectations!!!
This tour was amazing. Mick, our driver, was FULL of information and was happy to answer all of our questions. He was very personable and enjoyable to spend the day with. Our tour guide in Kilkenny, Joel, was amazing as well and our walking tour was excellent. This was a newer tour offered and more than worth the money. We highly enjoyed our day, and it was a perfect part of our honeymoon!
