It was really informative and although Paul must have done the spiel a million times he managed to make it sound fresh and interesting. It was a great introduction to the Killarney National Park and put the rest of our visit into perspective. Also the boat was covered to keep out the rain!

Beautiful scenery and knowledge guides. Not too long for those that want to do other activities or do explore the park on their own.

The crew were knowledgeable and friendly and provided interesting information.

The tour guide was very sound and we had a great time because of it!

Great value , excellent guide , super boat!! Lovely afternoon out
