A Recent Review of this guide

Greg was an awesome tour guide, and given that he picked this tour up a week before it began, because of our original guides illness, he did amazingly. He was open to our itinerary changes, and went above and beyond to see we were fed and watered. Since this was his first "Best of Ireland in 5 Day" tour, and not his specialty, he did his best to answer our questions. Our vehicle was amazing and very roomy for 5 and even internet! Fun time for us all.
