      From booking to the end of the trip Collette was informative and keep us apprised of each step. Our driver and guide were excellent. Hotels were very accommodating and lovely.

      I've traveled the world extensively; therefore, my 4-star rating is how I stack Collette Tours against other tour operators and outfitters I've used which include Lindblad Expeditions, National Geographic, AMA Waterways, MAKOR Israel Group Tours, Asia To Africa Outfitters and Uncharted Outposts. Collette Tour representatives exhibited an efficient, customer oriented approach with 1st class vendors, i.e., hotels, buses, tour guides.

      Overall, 12 days was too long, 8 days would have been more appropriate. The choice of group flights forced the group to miss the entire first day in Dublin with their arrival at 8pm. Thankfully, I arrived on my own flights at 8am and had the entire first day to tour Dublin. I would have been very disappointed had I not had the 2 full days in Dublin. Tour highlights were 2 days in Dublin, including St. Patricks Cathedral, Christ Church, Trinity College, the Book of Kells, the Kilmainham Prison and the Irish Music Show in The Den Bar after dinner in the Lansdowne Hotel. Beyond Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford and the Blarney Castle were all worth seeing as the roads were excellent and the length of bus rides were minimal. In addition, the final night in the Cabra Castle north of Dublin was a must see. Less enjoyable was Killarney to Belfast (southwest to northeast Ireland along the west coast), the sites to be seen were a poor trade off for the length of the bus rides and the condition of the roads. I would like to have had an extra night in Belfast with its rich history which would have afforded a walking tour of the shipping district and murals created by the IRA and less time at the Titanic tourist hotspot. While the hotels were all very good, I would prefer to stay at hotels in the towns and villages where walking to sites and night life is available. Two of the hotels were so remote that walking to city venues was prohibited. I strongly encourage you to include the Kilmainham Prison Tour in Dublin in every tour you conduct in Ireland. The tour explains the history of Ireland from 1840 - present day which lays an excellent foundation for the rest of the trip.

      John was an excellent tour guide with lots of interesting information about Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. He proud to be Irish and wants visitors to learn as much as possible about Ireland just as we Americans want to tell visitors about America. He is a very good representative for Ireland. He and Tommy (bus driver) were always very professional, very pleasant, helpful and extremely patient. Tommy is an excellent driver. We drove through a lot of light rain. Not once did I feel concerned about how he was driving. John made sure we knew the directions to our rooms in each hotel. He also guided us through the entry to the Heathrow airport and got us to the proper level after we had checked in. This was not something he had to do.

      This was my second trip to Ireland and was much better than my first one. It was with a different tour company. I liked St Patrick’s.
