We retained the services of Kerry Experience Tours recently for a four day tour of Western Ireland. We could not have made a better decision. Our guide and driver was Gerrit, the owner along with his wife, Esther. We strongly dislike anything resembling a "tour bus" experience, and we're not disappointed with Gerrit. He skillfully guided our family and a guest away from the throngs of tourist and the endless supply of oversized buses crowding the narrow roads. Still we saw every major attraction, and others not so well known, at a pace of our choosing and comfort. Gerrit was knowledgeable, witty, gregarious, and extremely accommodating. He made everyone feel like family and we were sad when the time ended to see him go. Would definitely recommend Kerry Experience to anyone who wants to see Ireland on their own terms. When we make a return trip, not if, we will book them far in advance to make sure the second trip is as good as the first.

It was a great trip. We stayed in Ireland for 5 days. We've seen everywhere in five days. Our guide Gerrit was very professional and successful at his work. We are looking forward to see ireland again.

Hi everyone!
We took a one-week-trip to Ireland and were blessed to choose the Kerry Experience Tours. We had just a couple days left in Ireland and needed a miracle, as we were set on visiting The Ring of Kerry and its surroundings in 2 days, but found out that no conventional small group tour matched the places we had hoped to go to.
So we placed our bet on The Kerry Experience never having gone on a personalised tour before and let me tell you what a wonderful time we had!
Ms. Ester turned out to be the most amazing guide of our 3-week stay on the Isles:
Firstly, she was very professional and truly knowledgeable of the area. Her punctuality and good disposition made her a pleasure to be with, always telling us about the history and lore of the places we visited. She also proved to be a good listener, showing a genuine interest in aspects of our culture and country.
Being a resident of area herself, she proved to know every nook and cranny, and was able to adapt our schedule along the way depending on the climate conditions and our own preferences (historical, scenic, religious routes etc.)
After the tour, she sent us beautiful pictures that you can only get from somebody with a trained eye and a true love of the place!
Also, the minivan was very comfortable and well supplied, and just the right size to negotiate the narrow roads and huge tourist buses we encountered along the way.
My advice: Without a doubt, this Experience is definitely worthwhile!

Thank you Gerrit & Ester for a wonderful 10 day adventure! The van was perfect for our group of six giving us each a window with plenty of room to stretch out comfortably, occasionally nap and plenty of storage for our luggage.
Gerritt shared his knowledge of Ireland but also let us savor the moments.
Highly recommend Kerry Experience Tours! Leave the driving to Gerrit! He knows the roads and the best on and off the beaten path places to visit.And remember to ask him about Liam the Lobster!

We had an absolutely lovely time touring the Ring of Kerry with Ester, who scooped us up in a super comfy fan at our lodge in Kenmare and returned us after a full day. We were dealt quite some unfortunate weather but Ester's knowledge of the "off the beaten path" of the Ring combined with her personality and wit made the day unforgettable, even if we didn't have the best views. In a way the crazy weather made it seem more authentic. Ester even brought us to an amazing lunch spot on Valencia Island. I would def recommend Kerry Experience Tours with Ester!
