Gerard is truly the best! From the moment he met us at the baggage claim to the last minute of our 4-day tour of the wild Atlantic way , we were laughing and talking as if we had known each other for years. He made my husband and my 2 twenty-something sons feel welcome and immediately at ease and ready for great time. He’s not only a Killarney native but he’s a student of all that is not only Irish history but goes ++ and beyond to understand your history as well. With a humor and familiarity that is so genuine, we could not have asked for more. He touched on everyone’s interest, from my family ties to golf interests to, music, pubs, food and entertainment. He’s a treasure trove of all the best places and makes you feel like you’re not a tourist —even though you are!! Great fun. Can’t write enough to capture the experience. Truly personalized and will only book with him in future. Thank you Gerard for an unforgettable trip!!A+++++

I would rate Gerard Scott and his company Killarney guided Tours as one the best we have taken anywhere in the world. First, he was amazing to answer all of my questions over several days in complete individualized answers, always prompt responses. He provided recommendations I would have never thought of and helped us avoid crowds, not once did he take us to shops for half hour because I let him know we hate shopping! He was early both of our full days, GREAT knowledge and personality. We learned so much about Ireland's history and culture. those two days were the only way my poor husband got to see Ireland!! I can't emphasize enough you need driver for the unbelievable narrow and windy rides plus the driving on left side. worth every euro you will spend on your trip. Only regret is I would have done more days!! We first did Dingle Pensulia and it was great experience. Second day was out of Kenmare with Killnary Park, incredible hidden abbey, Killarney Center (DO NOT Miss), Muckross And Ross Castle. He took the time to figure out exactly what types of things would be of more interest to us. The car was perfect and I'm recommending to all the places we stayed to tell people about Gerad's services, just wonderful experience and made out trip.

Gerard was a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable about the sites, roads and history. He was professional- on time, with the car spotless. We never had to stop for gas or delay in any way. He was always ready to go when we were. Our trip was customized efficiently for a golf detour. Gerard was ready with a smile and with a hand for the luggage. We lucked out getting Gerard for our trip. Definitely would recommend him!

After spending 2 full weeks with Gerard Scott on a private tour of beautiful Ireland, I feel extremely qualified to write this review. Don’t hesitate to book anything that Killarney Guided Tours has to offer! Even if it is a few days with this knowledgeable and accommodating man, do it! Although we are seasoned in renting a car and setting out on adventures Gerard took the same approach to our trip by listening to our interest and non interest, nudging us a bit when he thought something really was special (he was right) and making us feel safe and secure in our time with him. The importance of having someone with these guiding skills in this post Covid travel time will help ease any concerns you may have about the what ifs. Thank you Gerard for your commitment, lightheartedness, musical talents, driving skills. Photography and of course, your wonderful stories! We hope to meet again. I will be passing your name on to anyone I know traveling to Ireland. God Bless

Killarney Guided Tours was THE BEST way to begin our third tour of Ireland. We had read so many outstanding reviews, that booking with Gerard Scott was the only option we considered. Our experience was far from the standard tour fare. He came to know us very quickly and ascertained what would provide the best private experience for our 50th Wedding Anniversary Tour. We took many of the roads less travelled and had so many incredible photo opportunities. We would be honored to travel with Killarney Guided Tours when we return to Ireland! Thank you, Gerard, for memories that will last a lifetime!
