Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Peader was an excellent driver and host. The whole trip was terrific. Would highly recommend. We had perfect weather as well which may not be normal but it was high 60s and so sunny I got a little burnt on my nose. Peader made the trip very enjoyable with his knowledge of history and ability to keep everyone moving. The trip out to Innis Mornwas great and definitely get a tour on the horse drawn cart (all arranged in advance with the driver). The Cliffs were stunning by boat and then going to them in person was great. Wear comfortable shoes. It is a pretty good hike up from the visitors center. The day ended with a picture stop at Corkscrew Hill which was a nice break. Whole day took about 10 hours. Medium physical exertion. Nothing too strenuous.

Our guide Tony, was the nicest / most knowledgeable person and more importantly friend and very funny! It was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. The Ring of Kerry is out of this world and breathtaking. This tour was absolutely perfect for us. We covered so many areas over the day and went to places that the buses couldn't get to. Tony didn't rush us at all and we spent time in many places. Our favorite stops were:
Port Magee at the Kerry Cliffs - absolutely breathtaking
A visit to a Bog Village to learn more about the great Irish famine.
Ross Point - beautiful beach!
Valencia Harbour and visiting the forts and Torc Waterfall.
To be honest the whole tour was just amazing and made even better by a wonderful tour guide who picked us up from our accommodation.
We couldn't have had a better tour!
Thank you Tony and Peter for making our trip to Ireland so special.

We had our private tour with Peter yesterday and it was the highlight of our trip! He was very knowledgeable and brought us to the best sights of the Ring of Kerry. We had ample time to explore all of the places we wanted to see and Peter also offered great suggestions on where to buy gifts and good places to grab lunch. Highly recommended!!

There were 2 of us on this tour. Myself and my 19 yo daughter. We spent a full 8 hours driving the ring and got lots of great info from our guide. Ride was comfortable and professional and he had water for us too. He offered to tailor it to anything we wanted but we just asked him to hit the key stops. Enjoyable day. Would recommend this tour service and route.

It was a fantastic tour. Stanley is very great and patient. He always tell us to take our time on each stop. We had lots of pictures. By the way this is a private tour. He also knows some facts about the places that we went through which is really appreciated.

Piotr was fantastic! He had all kinds of good stories, knew all the good places to stop and took us to less busy places (avoiding the big tour buses). Couldn’t have asked for a better day! He was even able to make other recommendations for while we were in the area. 11/10!

4 of us hired Peter Stanley to drive and direct us through the Ring of Kerry. Our reasoning was so that all 4 of us could enjoy the spectacular vistas rather than one of us white knuckling the drive. Peter was incredibly knowledgeable about not just the area but history, flora and fauna, cultural references and made sure we enjoyed the day. How could you not have fun after being driven around in a green 6 door Mercedes... the “Green Hornet”!!!

My friends and I were picked up at our Airbnb by Peter at 9:30am on the dot - Peter was right on time! We informed Peter that we would like a non-traditional Ring of Kerry trip and he did not disappoint. Beautiful side roads throughout the country and sites and stops that were breathtaking. Peter is a fantastic driver and we would recommend booking a trip with him as your guide and your expert in Irish history - so informative! Thank you Peter for a memorable day!

I had a wonderful time on the Ring of Kerry with local guide William Fleming. We visited Killarney National Park (including Torc Waterfall), the local museum housed in Cahersiveen Barracks (which focuses mostly but not exclusively on local man and national hero Daniel O'Connell), two stone forts, Valentia Island with a stop at the Skellig Experience Visitor Centre, Skelligs Chocolate, and several stops for viewing vistas, including a couple of different views of Skellig Michael and Little Skellig. William had a general itinerary for the Ring of Kerry which he adapted to my interests and comfort. As we were traveling between stops, he provided a tremendous amount of fascinating information about the area, its history and culture and recent past/present, and Irish myths and legends.

I discovered after booking my tours of the southwest peninsulas that Taxi Killarney and South Kerry Taxi, listed as separate companies on here, are run by the same person, who contracts most of his tours out to area guides. I had originally been booked to take this tour a different day, but the owner contacted me and asked if I could swap days as, he said, Tony was a good guide to the Ring of Kerry and was available the day I went instead. In the end, Tony did not come so I have no idea what happened with that, and the owner and I apparently thought I was being picked up at different times (I thought 9:00, he told William 9:30, but since it was a verbal conversation I don't know how the misunderstanding happened); when I tried to call the owner to find out what had happened when no one had shown up by about 9:15, no one answered. William, the guide who did take me on this tour, turned out to also have his own tour company, and next time I'd book an area tour through William instead.

If interested, you can also read my reviews of the two other tours I took through the companies.
