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.

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 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.

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!!!

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!

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.

Our family tour of Inishowen Peninsula was truly amazing…Joe went way beyond my expectations, with his wealth of information about Ireland and our family’s history, his congeniality and diverse talents (he plays flute and sings)! He helped made my first trip to Ireland one I will never forget!
Thanks Joe!

We had the great fortune of having Joe as our tour guide for a second day of exploring the amazing sites and history near Donegal, Ireland. Traveling the Wild Atlantic Way, we explored many places including Grianan of Aileach, Doe Castle, Glenveagh National Park, Glenveagh Castle, and more! Once again, Joe was so skilled at sharing the history of the locations. Why they were important at the time and today. Not to mention, he to excellent photos of us and the incredible views so we could have them as a reminder of our incredible day. Chieftain Tours provided us with a few amazing days during our time spent around Donegal and we sincerely appreciated the stories, history and the skilled driving to get us to all of these wonderful places.
Joe and this tour were exceptional! Amazing history, stories, and incredible views. Learning about the people and places really provided the experience we were looking for. We were able to get lost in the locations and imagine what it would have been like to live back in those times… It was a transformational experience. Thank you, Joe and Chieftain Tours, for the education, memories, humor, and wonderful sights.

Joe was an extraordinary guide, and we immediately knew it would be a great day with him the minute we engaged with his remarkable personality! He suggested that we briefly discuss the tour and our preferences so he could ensure he would meet our expectations (which were exceeded). We are seasoned travelers with a strong interest in learning about the history, stories, and culture of the places we tour. Joe, having been born and raised in Ireland, was definitely prepared and uniquely qualified to deliver an exceptional experience.

As we began our journey, Joe shared the historical background of our first location and described the stops we would make along the Wild Atlantic Way. What stood out to us right away, is that he shared how the history of these incredible places and events impacted those living in these locations during the periods covered, as well as the Irish people living there today. His expressive storytelling provided us with a much deeper understanding of the people of Ireland. We also learned how far back the history of Ireland has been verified (prior to the neolithic era)!

If you enjoy history and learning about the people and places you visit when traveling, this educational, entertaining and impactful experience is for you! Joe was also a skilled driver with a wonderful sense of humor, which he generously shared with us as he graciously shared the road with others. Thank you, Joe, and Chieftain Tours, for creating treasured lifelong memories and an incredible day of sights, stories, and fun!

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.

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!
