We had booked 2 tours with Extreme Ireland and we were quite dissapointed witht he 2 tours. It was a rented bus and a driver but not a guide!
We visited cliffs of moher burren and we did not learn much at all. The driver spent all the time speaking to the 2 girls in the front seats with him and explained them the sights, the rest in the bus behind had absolutely no explanation of anything.
The driver stopped at Burren and we found out only because we asked, otherwise he said that there was no need to stop the bus and we can drive through the sights. We had little opportunity for phototaking, and the driver was not friendly in general. We are not sure to remember his name, but maybe he is called Paul.
We arrived back in Dublin ay 6.30pm while the brochure at the tourist office said that we would return back at 7.30pm. We got back 1 hour earlier. We compared with other tourists in the hotel later, and learnt that they visited other sites and had interesting stops with other tour companies. Avoid this Company!
In addition, we had some problems witht he volcanic ash problem, and this company is inflexible and require a 7 day cancellation policy to have a 90% refund. It was difficult, who can predict the volcano with 7 days look-ahead information. Anyway we felt cheated with this company. The guides were not trained, and did not seem to know much on the sites except the roads to drive there. They did not know if there were ATM machines, where we can go to buy stamps for postcards etc. They did not know the cities well at all, one driver stopped to ask for directions as well during the tour!
