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.

I would highly recommend this tour company! We did the 3 day with Brian as our tour guide and it was honestly the best way to see the northern half of Ireland. Brian had a lot of information about everything and kept us all entertained with his bad jokes and the odd song. It is well worth the money because it's without doubt the best and most economical way to see Ireland as there is no time wasted navigating, vast local knowledge, no important sights missed and most importantly of all at the end of the day it was straight to the accommodation without getting lost! At night Brian always seemed to know where the best place would be locally to hear some Irish Music and boy did we hear some top class stuff. I would highly recommend this to couples or small groups looking for a fun, relaxed tour with the option of changing the itinerary at a moment’s notice, thanks to the “few to many in Leo’s Tavern where we met Moya Brennan lead singer of Clanad!!! We were planning a return visit in autumn 2020 but due to the current pandemic we now hope to go in spring 2021 as Brian has agreed to put together an alternative 7 day tour covering the same route but with different sights, we really can’t wait. Thank you Brian for such a wonderful trip and for the lifelong memories we have created.

We recently used Chieftain Tours for a 2 day tour of Donegal County. It was a great experience! Joe was our tour guide and his knowledge and history of the area was exceptional. Joe was extremely helpful in planning our tour. I provided Joe with our wish list of things/places we wanted to see. Joe was able to maximize our time based upon our wish list and suggested places that we did not include. We trusted Joe's suggestions and we were not disappointed! Joe picked us up each morning on the scheduled time. The van that was used was so comfortable, roomy, chairs and tables and even USB charging ports. It was very easy to hear Joe as he drove us around and describe different points of interest to us. We highly recommend Chieftain Tours! They were the highlight of our 16 day tour of Ireland! Thanks Joe!! Go raibh maith agat!!!

Chieftain Tours put together a customized tour of County Donegal that was fantastic! Our tour guide, Joe, had deep historical and geographical knowledge that was so helpful as we toured the area of our ancestors. Chieftain Tours arranged for a private tour of Fanad Head Lighthouse that was a real highlight and they made it so easy for us to get around from place to place so we were able to see quite a lot over a few days. Chieftain Tours really delivered a once in a lifetime experience and I would highly recommend them.

Joe Greene of Chieftain Tours is simply outstanding! He is gregarious, funny, smart and very creative! We had a personal tour of sites in Donegal and Northern Ireland. He speaks Irish and seems to know everyone! Very knowledgeable. If you are in search of a challenging walking tour of Ireland's sites, Joe is #1 ! He easily climbed up steep inclines at the Slieve League Cliffs and the Giant's Causeway which made me jealous! I strongly recommend him if you want an interesting, informative and engaging tour experience. He can customize a tour to fit your interests.

I wanted a private tour that would combine northern Irish sight-seeing with genealogical links to my immigrant ancestors. Chieftain Tours began by providing an itinerary of well-known tourist places, and I, as the sole client, was able to tailor the tour to include ancestral locations that I knew about. Joe worked out all the logistics and it was well beyond my expectations.

Joe from Chieftain Tours was the perfect way to start our trip in Ireland. It wasn't just his obvious love of country or the awesome van we toured in; Joe had a way of grounding us in the present moment. And he did so as he shared a wealth of information only someone living in the area can provide. Our group spoke of Joe and his insights often as we continued our tour of Ireland. I know our group will never forget him.

While on a vacation to Dublin Ireland, we looked into tours in Northern Ireland and stumbled on Chieftain Tours. We went on the 3 day tour and Joe our driver and guide picked us up in Belfast as arranged. What an amazing experience we had! We visited the Titanic center, bushmill whiskey and along the beautiful Northern Ireland coastline. We also went along the Wild Atlantic Route of Donegal and this was absolutely unreal. The stories and history of that area is just fascinating and we would have loved to spend more time there. This tour was the highlight of all our vacations so far and we hope to be back again in the future to explore all those mountains and amazing beaches!

We just had a great day touring with Joe. He took the time to find out what we like to see and do and customized the day for us. We're a little unusual in that we like mostly old and historical sites, and Joe accommodated us perfectly. He gave us lots of historical details, but no too many! The day could not have gone better. Joe had a ton of suggestions and would have been able to work with the touring preferences of any group. If I were to do the trip over again I would book two or more days with Chieftain Tours. We'll just have to return.

I traveled to your area with a group of 20 people for a golf vacation. Joe provided transportation for all of us and our equipment to the courses and back to Donegal for a week. We had a great experience as he was friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Also helped with some dining recommendations and reservations a few times. I would highly recommend them!

We had a private tour with Maureen who is a real gem! My father was born in the area and Maureen took us to Killybegs, Roughra, Ardara and Slieve League. Because of her efforts, we met distant relatives who showed us the remains of the cottage where my father grew up. It was an amazing day! Chieftain Tours helped create a memory that my husband and I will never forget!
