My sister, goddaughter and I had such a wonderful time on our two-day tour with Gerard. We had never been to Ireland, so when Gerard asked where we would like to go and what we would like to see, we didn't really know what to tell him. I think our response was "we want to see the countryside and we like learning about history". To an average tour guide this information would have probably gotten us a very mediocre tour, but with Gerard's knowledge and expertise we got the trip of a lifetime. He made sure that we got to see all the typical highlights, but then he took us on all the back roads and we ended up in these fabulous areas where you definitely won't see a tour bus (which in our mind is very good). It was like a backstage pass to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. Our trip was so wonderful we are trying to figure out when we can go again, and when we do, we will definitely be contacting Gerard again. If you are lucky enough to book a tour with Gerard be sure to ask him about "The Great Book of Kerry", it's simply fascinating.

Traveling to Ireland has always been a dream of mine. This past summer, I had the opportunity to travel County Kerry with my family, guided by Killarney Guided Tours. Killarney Guided Tours not only made our trip exciting, but also relaxing. They were very flexible when it came to our day to day adventures. Gerard, our tour guide, was excellent. He took the time to get to know each of one of us, and made us feel very comfortable. If you plan on venturing to Ireland in the future, I would highly recommend choosing Killarney Guided Tours for a once in a lifetime experience of Ireland.

We toured with Killarney Guided Tours and could not have asked for a more relaxing vacation. Our guide, Gerard, seemingly effortlessly blended our interests with all of the attractions/sites we'd hoped to visit. Looking forward to exploring more of the breathtaking country and would highly recommend that if you are looking for a more private, luxury type experience (without any pretense) you consider Killarney Guided Tours.

I would highly recommend using Killarney Guided Tours to anyone. From the moment you step off the plane until you have to get back on it Gerard was able to set a very relaxing pace yet we were able to see so much in just 8 days. Gerard truly loves what he does and it comes through when touring with him. His knowledge of the land and history shines through as you travel to many wonderful places whether touristy or hidden. He will go out of his way to find a cafe where parts of a book were written/mentioned and surprise a friend with a delicious birthday cake or find out if we still have time to make a show! Gerard thank you for making our trip spectacular!
