A full-time professional Portuguese guide, who is both the driver and an expert on Portuguese history.
My wife and I just returned from the Ireland and Scotland Tour in September 2016 with Olde Ipswich Tours, were very satisfied with and impressed by the arrangements made by them. Prior to the trip, Robin in their office handled administrative details, airline reservations, and answered pre-trip questions. All questions and emails were answered the same day. All of the accommodations at the hotels and B&B's in Ireland and Scotland were first class and the food served at the breakfasts and dinners was delicious. The pace of the tour was just right and we were able to see and experience the sights of both the big cities as well as the small towns in both Ireland and Scotland. Our guide, Bob, and our bus drivers could not have been more friendly and helpful during the trip.They took care of everything. I am a photographer/videographer and made some short video clips that show more than just words about some of my experiences on the tour. This short clip is about the Cliffs of Moher and the Ballinalacken Castle Hotel in Ireland where we stayed for two nights: https://vimeo.com/185569940. This is a short video clip about our walking tour of Edinburgh, Scotland: https://vimeo.com/185073535.
