This is the best review I have ever written about a tour we didn't take! The wife and I were to cruise from NYC to Dover, UK, with various stops in route. We booked a tour with eCoach/Butler Tours last August . Well, with all the problems going on, and surgery set for our return, I was told that if I left the country, my surgery would be cancelled. We cancelled our cruise and contact Ian at Butler to cancel our excursion. He was most pleasant and understanding, even thought it meant a loss of revenue to him. After sending my bank information, he wired a full refund to my account. I can't say the same for Irish Tours, who won't return my calls nor e-mails. Thank you Ian!!

We have been on many cruises and always choose our excursions through the cruise line but this was the first time we booked through a third party and we were very happy we did. We were picked up and returned to the boat. Our guide was very informative and explained the history and culture of Ireland as we took a scenic drive to Blarney Castle. We never felt rushed and had plenty of time at each stop to explore and enjoy the scenery. The cruise line had offered a very similar trip but this trip was cheaper and the experience was much better than other excursions we have been on. It was tailor made for our cruise so we had no worries about times or pick up points. We would definitely take this excursion again.

Our two bus drivers were both lovely.They were very talkative and engaging, with a nice sense of humor to boot! It was very pleasant to listen to what they were saying, very confident and smooth trip overall, with good weather 75% of the time.
