Connie was responsive throughout the entire booking process, amenable to my personal requests, prompt and generous with her time the day of, creative with the tour by adding a few extra gems that really made it special for me, knowledgeable about the sites and local stories and an absolute delight to spend a day with! This Tour was a bucket list treat to myself and thanks to Connie (and the good Lord for creating such beautiful landscape) it was a GLORIOUS day!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words Jane! Showing you the few extra gems was indeed my pleasure and YOU were an absolute delight as well ! Again, many thanks for the day and the opportunity to meet you and with the help of God, we'll meet again! :)

Connie was wonderful. An ex-pat who loves Ireland, but can relate to Americans well. She showed us parts of Donegal we would never have seen in a bus. She catered to our needs in every way and was delightful. She made us want to visit Ireland again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aaww .. thank you very much for the wonderful review! It was a pure pleasure showing you both a bit of Donegal and you're welcome back anytime!! Going where buses can't go and adding a few hidden gems is the best part! ;)

Connie was excellent. Planned a great tour based on info we had provided. She cheerfully made adjustments as needed. Knew the area and people very well. Went above and beyond by taking pictures at every stop to supplement our pictures. She includes this in her tours. She made suggestions and listened to what we wanted to see and do. Car was clean and comfortable. We saw and experienced a lot. The tour was worth every penny. No problems. Absolutely recommend Connie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bob and Roseanne, Many thanks for such a wonderful review!! ;) Anything and everything seen and done during those 4 days was my pleasure! The both of you are absoulety wonderful and was a pure delight showing you a bit of Donegal, helping you find possible ancestors and the best bit .. connecting with a living cousin! Again, many thanks for choosing me as I feel honoured to have met you both! ;) All the best, Connie
I would rate Connie 10 stars if the site allowed. Her love of the region and her knowledge of the sites was amazing. This tour was by far the most worthwhile of everything we did in all of Ireland. Connie is a fabulous guide and it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. She is excited about every facet of Irish life and we are grateful we shared this experience with her. She knew we loved to document our travels and accommodated us. Connie - we wish you the best and thank you so much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Perry and Pearl, Thank you very much for the overwhelming review and thank YOU for allowing me to have you as one of our special guests! It was a pure pleasure showing both of you the magic of our small but mighty island and do hope to have you back again in the future to see the things we missed! ;) All the best, Connie

It was a delight to tour County Donegal with Connie. Her enthusiasm in sharing her knowledge of the area and her many local contacts really made our tour special. She is very thoughtful in how she customizes her tours and we truly benefited with her as our tour guide. We have phenomenal photos of our visit to Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way and we attribute this to Connie getting us there. Many thanks to Connie for a memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aawww .. thank you so much! I also feel blessed to have met you both and delighted to hear that you both enjoyed our tour and your mom .. ha .. she's one brilliant lady ! ;) Great to hear and even better to have met you! Thank YOU for choosing me to show you our corner of Ireland ;) Connie
I was amazed at the sheer customer service that Connie displayed! You see, unlike other private tour operators who charged from one-tenth to ten times as much as she charged, she was more than willing to alter the schedules/regions she offered in accordance with the customer's wishes. I had chosen magnificent views and prehistoric ruins, and I am most pleased to not have been ripped off in this regard, unlike some other more unethical tour guides in the area...
I, due to collosal stupidity, visited Donegal in the month of September 2018. By the time I saw Connie I had been seriously ripped off by various taxi-drivers and one freelancing ship's captain for a many hundreds of euros each. It turns out that it is a waste of time to visit Ireland outside of July/August. I also learnt, via Connie, that it is always better to hire a private guide to oversee more unscrupulous, more unethical guides. She introduced me to parts of Donegal I had never seen before.
