The best vacation we've ever had in our life!

Stephen Richards from United States traveled to Ireland

Overall, the best vacation we've ever had in our life! This Private Island tour was very well organized by Firebird. They had all of our hotels, excursions, train tickets, tour drivers, everything mapped out very well, and we did not have any problems or surprises. They set up the tour to include all of our must-have activities, and most of of the tour guides provided were all excellent. Most of the cars/vans that they used were Mercedes, so very nice. There was one driver who was basically a taxi driver and not a tour guide. His car was a bit of a mess and he was not a native Irishman, so he didn't really pass on anything useful about our sights, but he did provide an interesting world view about Ireland and Europe in general. All of the hotels were 4 star and centrally located, with full breakfasts included - we ate like kings! (one hotel was listed as a 3 star hotel but it was as nice or nicer than a 4 star hotel). The worry-free aspect of the private tour was fantastic. We just followed the itinerary, and everyone took great care of us for 9 days. What we loved most was learning the history of the country, and it's people from the various tour guides - and from the locals at the pubs at night!!
