We booked a Connemara tour and picked between 3 companies offering identical itineraries. I picked the wrong company. Every other bus and company left on time and in nice coaches. We were left waiting more than 30 minutes for a very small coach with little leg room and no bathroom. The speaker system was so muffled that we could hear nothing. The guide was made aware of this but she did nothing to address it. Perhaps it was just as well since she was delivering a very monotone lifeless description of anything when she chose to speak at all. Perhaps she was on the Guinness all night before? She brought her little girl which was no problem, but she herself had zero personality and made no attempt to make up for the late start to our morning simply stating that it couldn't be helped. I guess part of our scheduled itinerary was replaced with the 4 extra bathroom breaks as well as her coffee stop. The brochure advertised a free Connemara walk and included pictures of some of the places we would visit. We did not receive a walk through a famine village, or the Connemara walk, or the picture opportunity of the Quiet Man Bridge. What we received for our euro was the old bait and switch. How else was she able to get us back into town 30 minutes early with the late start? We were not given the value for our money despite her proclaiming, "We received everything and more." We should have stuck with the other company, Healy, as we very much enjoyed our tour and guide from the previous day. I presume that if we were scheduled with any other guide this would have been a different experience. Run for the hills if you learn your guide will be this woman.
