The guide was very knowledgable, polite and friendly. He did his best to make this a good trip. The sites themselves were amazing. There were just took many things to see on this trip and some of them were too far apart. Some should have been left out so we could have enjoyed the sites a bit more, you can't see all of the sites. It felt a bit rushed, we were running around and didn't have enough time at the sites.
The tour was well worth the money. Interesting stops - beautiful scenery and Kilkenny is definitely worth a visit. There was also enough time allocated during the tour. I will recommend this tour to all interested.
