Tour guide was very friendly, talkative, and knowledgable. He knew many good places to stop including a famine-era village with pure bred Irish Wolf hounds (huge) and some beautiful ocean views. Lunch was delicious, but he does choose the one restaurant for the whole group. Personally, I loved that he choose to sing a few traditional songs for us on the bus ride. The tour itself did feel a little long (I would bring snacks and be prepared to move in and out of the bus often). The bus was full which is good for the company but a bit annoying as a tourist.

The tour was very nice, with lots of stops for photos a d to enjoy the beauty of the the ring of kerry. The only thing that left a bad impression was that the driver who was very nice and friendly and knowledgeable, talked very fast and if you were not local you had to try a lot to understand. otherwise a very nice tour.

A bit in a hurry but worth the money

It was easy and comfortable for us (with 2 kids), some breaks could have been longer to enjoy the moment. We appreciated the driver's comments and the views along the road. It was also good that the itinerary included a lunch break to a good restaurant where the staff was ready to speed up the queue and serving for the many tourists coming there. We arrived just in time at the meeting point and the bus was not there anymore (they wanted to avoid the heavy traffic apparently), but there was a car waiting for us which took us to the bus. Recommendation is to arrive earlier at the meeting point.
