Patrick and his son, Matthew, traveled to Ireland in September 2022. They saw sites all around the country, stopping to visit family in Connemara and Donegal.

How can we improve for next time?

Ann was outstanding.  Her personal touch and expertise helped improve tour ravel experience. I have already recommended her to a few people considering vacations to Europe.

Any other questions or comments?

Guinness is a great beverage but the warehouse tour is way overrated.  The skyline lounge views are now obstructed by construction cranes.

I am amazed what you can do as a travel professional.  In considering our trip, I was using the internet to try and run different travel options; it was frustrating and ultimately futile to run all the scenarios over different time periods.  We appreciate your professional expertise, guidance, and recommendations.
