“What a great way to see the sights!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

This wasva terrific way to understand early Irish history and get out into the countryside. All ages and levels of interest on the tour so the guide's encyclopedic knowledge of local history and his delivery had to be good. It was! Don't miss this when your in Dingle!

“BEAUTIFUL and informative tour of Dingle Peninsula”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Loved it all! The day was gorgeous and our tour guide, Tim Collins, provided excellent talk of the sites. Famous as the area filmed in "Ryan's Daughter." Magnificent seaside, winding hills, pottery & weaving shops, sheep!

“Great way to experience the Slea Head Drive”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Rick Steves had recommended this tour, and as usual, it was a good recommendation. The guide, Tim Collins, is very knowledgeable about the area. You learn about the history, botany, movies, and geography of the area. Tim did a great job balancing time riding in the van with stops to get out and take in the scenery. I was so glad we took this tour, and what made it even better was that my brother and I could sit back and just enjoy the Slea Head Drive without worrying about navigating the narrow roads and finding places to stop and look. It's an engaging, stress-free way to learn about the area and enjoy gorgeous scenery!

“Lived up to its great reviews”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

we've enjoyed seeing this tour highlighted by Rick Steves and our friends have strongly recommended it, and we can see why. Tim Collins is so well-informed about everything from the ancient history to the flora and fauna, the film set and the local gossip, and shares it all in a pleasant and tasteful manner. He is a gentleman but with a twinkle in his eye and a quietly keen sense of humor. This tour makes the visit to this magical peninsula all the more special. Very well worth the cost and time.

“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This was a wonderful way to both experience the peninsula and learn some very interesting history. Our guide was never boring and I learned a lot along the way. The archaeology sites were amazing. To think they have survived so long. Highly recommend this tour.
