We had such a lovely time on this tour and our guide Godfrey was so amazing (with additional humour and musical treat) to explain everything about the places we visited. The lovely sunny weather was the icing on the cake to enjoy the beautiful sites.

It was a well planned and interesting day. The tour guide and bus driver were courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. More time at Kilkenny would have been great.

Overall was great, trip was smooth, and our tour guide Sean made it very interesting with his stories.

Der Tag lief super. Sowohl die Reiseleiterin als auch der Busfahrer waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Our tour guide Sean was amazing and very informational.
