We took the 12 day Giant Ireland tour. Excellent, interesting, helpful tour guide Mark regaled us with songs and tales and was a fount of historical and current information about all the sites we visited. We had sunny weather 10 of the 12 days (* results not applicable for all users!!) so the beautiful scenery was enhanced all the more. Loved the smaller size of the tour, the efforts to avoid heavily touristy areas (or at least times), the flexibility for individual preferences and the "behind the scenes" feel of taking some back roads. The company has some excellent values and standards and lives up to them (environmental sustainability, personalized service etc). Activity/ pace was as expected and good (at least from my view).
