Great way to get around as everthing is spread out and likely would have cost more money and time to get to all the sites. Because there were so many languages spoken it took a lot of time. It would have been better when we got to a site with an audioguide to allow us to have an audio guide if we wanted and then we could explore at our own pace and see the things that interested us more, it allows people of different age groups and backgrounds to pick what interests them and what they are capable of walking to. This would be more time efficient instead of hanging out with the group and having to wait for both languages to be spoken and therefore losing time to see and hear about what we wanted. The guide was good, we had a neat diverse group. The many languages inhibited spontaneous commentary on points of interest as we passed them on the coach ride, although the guides did try to point out the most important ones. The one guide lacked some enthusiasm and talked slowly, and i felt like the one guide was saying less things as compared to the guide with the other languages. Good hotel stays with great breakfasts, and the meals were good, but not for someone who is any way fussy because we didn´t get a choice at all and two out of the three days we got fish. Neat multiple courses of typical french cuisine. Well worth it to go on the trip because of being able to accomplish and see so much without feeling rushed, other than the lacking of seeing what I wanted to in the sites because of having to stay with the guide for the information but loosing time on waiting for the other language to be spoken. Would have been much happier with the trip if an audio guide was given to us at each site they were available.
I didn't reailize that the trip was basically 4 day trips, but it worked out well. There was just a bit of a different flow because I basically had a different tour guide for the different days. I had Dave as my guide two days who was stellar. He went above and beyond, and was a treasure chest of information. He was very helpful with questions as well. Was a great way to see the scenic parts of Ireland packed into 4 days. Stayed at a great B and B in Kilarney with this tour called Robeen House. It was nice to see have the different day trips but have them all coordinated for me.
London, United Kingdom
It was a nice relaxed day of nice scenery. Our tour guide had great information along the way, and offered lots of fun facts to make the driving more interesting. Enough time was offered at each stop to give us an idea and understanding of the coastwolds as we couldn't without a car.
