Beautiful area. Anita was very good in sharing the history of the area. We learned lots about her family as well. She was not as personable as we hoped. She never introduced herself until someone asked her . We had a great time with most of the people in our tour . Again, we felt that we were left on our own more than we expected.. It would have been nice to have another meal or 2 included for the price we paid. More time in Liverpool and Cotswolds would have been nice
We were unaware that our return trip was cancelled on April 4 which was when we were on your tour.. I understand that neither CIE or our Travel Agent were notified. We only found out that our flight was cancelled when we were planning on boarding on April 20th. Luckily our son lives in Edinburgh so we were able to stay with him on April 20th.
We really enjoyed our previous Ireland tour with CIE If this would have been our first tour with CIE, we would not have returned.

Good Beginner Tour
TD was very informative and I learned something new even though I am a history buff. Watch too much British TV, have lived there briefly & visited on my own many times.

Anita was our guide and she was so wonderful, thoughtful and full of knowledge as we journeyed.
It was awesome for me, I would do it again with CIE
