I admit it. I am a repeater traveler with Joyce's Ireland Hiking Tours. Once was not enough. Joyce's Ireland is the perfect small group hiking tour operator. Whether it be Ireland, Scotland or Provence (all destinations I have traveled with Joyce's Ireland), each tour is well planned using a mix of local guides and lovely accommodations. Day hikes provide multiple distances and terrain. Joyce's Ireland works to provide a great experience for all members of the group, with consideration to hiking experience, physicality and destination. I cannot recommend Joyce's Ireland Hiking Tours. I cannot wait for 2020 to be over, so that I may travel again. And when I do, it will be on a Joyce's Ireland Tour. The biggest challenge for my next tour will be selecting the destination. Great food, experienced guides, thoughtful itineraries, scenic destinations, unique and welcoming accommodations.

I have been on several hiking trips with Joyce! She is an amazing tour guide. She definitely looks out for our best interests and makes sure we have the best possible experience. The accommodations are always above average and the food is outstanding. The hiking is always breathtaking. This year we could not go on our scheduled trips, so she graciously rolled our deposit over to next year. I highly recommend Joyce’s Ireland Trips!

Our goal is to stay safe and healthy to travel again with Joyce’s Ireland in 2021, after having missed two tours this year (2020) because of the pandemic. In the past, Joyce has led us on hikes in Ireland several times, England, Wales, Scotland, and France. After the first trip, we couldn’t imagine that the second trip could compare, but it did, as did the next and the next. We have met delightful people from around the world who share a love of hiking and the beauty of nature, as well as reliving our adventures each evening in comfortable accommodations over excellent and relaxing dining. Until we can travel again, we have wonderful memories to inspire us—and to keep us planning for 2021.

Dear PegS487, Thank you for taking the time and writing such a nice review. Joyce's Ireland Hiking Tours is nothing without the exceptional clients who travel with us! I am so sorry that you are unable to travel with me this year, but I am looking forward to a mighty marvellous tour in France and in Ireland with you next year!

We took a trip of a lifetime with Joyce's Ireland Hiking Tours. Our walking tour of Ireland was a one of a kind trip, by a one of a kind team! Everything was first class and well planned out. All we had to do was enjoy! We booked to do the tour of Scotland in 2020, but the Corona Virus cancelled our plans. Undeterred, we re-booked for 2021. We are so excited about our upcoming 2021 trip to Scotland. Thank you Joyce for lifelong memories! Don and Mary Jane...

Dear donbI4661KO, thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you all those years ago, and I was so excited that you were to travel to Scotland with me in 2020. I am so sorry that it didn't happen this year, but I will look forward to seeing you both in May 2021.

I have taken many of Joyce's Ireland hiking tours. I will not repeat the glowing reports I wrote when reviewing these individual trips. What I'd like to note here is how Joyce's Ireland dealt with my wife and I when our 2020 trip to Scotland had to be cancelled due to the repercussions of the Corona Virus. Joyce communicated clearly and often keeping us informed of what was transpiring as events out of everyone's control changed constantly. She quickly offered choices to all those who had booked. These included full cash refunds; the ability to transfer the funds to later 2020 tours or the choice to transfer the funds to 2021 tours. Having dealt with other travel cancellations due to the virus I can confidently state Joyce's Ireland handled the episode as well as possible. This was no surprise. The integrity of this company is clearly evident in its DNA stretching from the booking process to the actual operations of the tours. I can wholeheartedly recommend to all that traveling with this company will be a fantastic experience. We hopefully look forward to our 2021 tour.
