A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent tour. Barry was outstanding. He gave a very thorough overview of Ireland's history, culture and economic status. The Irish countryside, Blarney castle and the village of Kinsale were the main highlights of the tour and were all great to see. Barry also took us to a very moving memorial to the firefighters that lost their lives on 9/11. Our family was very pleased with Barry and the tour and consider it a highlight of our trip.
