A Recent Review of this tour

James tour was terrific. I learned so much and saw a part of Ireland that was unexpected. He made special stops to accommodate my husbands desire to photograph unusual subjects. He was funny and knowledgeable, full of beans. Thank you James for an exciting and entertaining day in Ireland!
