Feedback On Travel Company And Travel Experience
We were not a large group as we were only three people traveling to Ireland, so we were a little apprehensive about booking a travel agency. And prior to that, some of the friends suggested I hire a guide when you reach there, but we abort this idea of hiring a guide and rather we booked a travel agency that can give us hassle-free traveling experience. We explored the Aran Islands, with such perfect planning by our agent and guide that the six of us arrived by plane and had the magnificent cliffs surrounding the ancient Dun Aengus fortress to ourselves before other visitors arrived later in the morning. Although it was too early in the season to attempt the climb up Skellig Michael, we circled the monastic island by boat (and were secretly relieved that we did not have to make its challenging climb!) Each day as we rambled along our guide made the stunning Irish countryside more meaningful by providing relevant Irish history lessons, and he punctuated his pleasant and informative mini-lectures with jokes and songs. Although the trip was perfectly planned and executed, our guide also displayed an amazing degree of flexibility, as the situation required. He suggested and implemented an impromptu visit to a church cemetery when he learned that a genealogy search by one of our group indicated that she had relatives in a particular County. He stopped the coach at village pharmacies when travelers' sniffles appeared. He changed his own plans when the weather threatened ours.
