Wonderful day spent touring the Ring of Kerry with Peter!
, Sep 2021
We had an excellent private tour with Peter on 8/23! My friend and I were visiting from California and decided to splurge on a private tour so that we could skip the mega bus during Covid. We also wanted to go to the Kerry Cliffs, which the bus cannot get to...It was SO worth every penny! Peter was just so informative on so many things. I didn't want to just see the sights, but also wanted background info and special knowledge on what we were seeing and Peter had all of that in spades. By doing the Ring of Kerry in the opposite direction than the Mega Buses go, we were able to avoid lots of the crowds. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and when we got to the Kerry Cliffs we were in awe - I can't believe how many people miss them entirely when they visit. It was just breathtaking. Peter always checked in with us and made sure if we wanted a coffee or lunch that we were taken care of...I really trusted him on the drive as well which takes a good level of driving skill. We cannot recommend Peter and this tour enough! We came back to CA still dreaming of everything that we saw that day - just magical!
Best tour imaginable!

The Ring of Kerry is spectacular in and of itself, but having a tour guide like Piotr truly made for a memorable experience. His knowledge of the history and evolution of the land and people, as well as the local lore, was outstanding. And he was so willing to tailor the tour, stopping only where we wanted and for as long as we wished, made for a perfect day. And he made us all anxious to return to Ireland soon. Five stars all the way around.

Thank You for visiting us. we had a great day. I always hope to see my guests again. Do not forget Ireland :)
Great scenery-so glad to have a driver.

This is some of the most beautiful coastline views. Yes, the clouds can sometimes hamper, but if you are patient you will get to see eventually. Although we rented a car to drive around Ireland, this is some very harrowing windy, narrow roads with hairpin turns. Dan was a great driver and guide. He showed us all the highlights on the ring of Kerry and gave us history and background to learn about them. He also made some great recommendations for where to stop on our next drive. It was so nice to go off season when the ring road wasn’t clogged with busses-it was even worth putting up with the cold wind and rain. I highly recommend doing this day trip from Killarney.
Saw a lot on a short day

William was great. He showed us about as much as it was possible to see on a late November day. His knowledge of the area's history and culture added significantly to the experience.
The marvelous Ted Kennedy
, Oct 2019
What an exceptional tour of the Ring of Kerry provided by Ted. He was amusing, always with a fun Irish story. A challenging drive on winding roads that Ted rode with ease and confidence. He went out of his way to show us every exceptional view on the Ring as well as on side roads. There is no way a large tour bus could have given to us a more spectacular. He knows the Ring. If you come to Ireland and you wish to tour the Ring of Kerry if you do not have the pleasure of Ted Kennedy providing this service you are missing out.

Thank You for a fabulous day. I am so glad. I hope You will not forget Ireland and come back soon.
Fantastic day

This tour was awesome. Our driver Tony is quite the personality, if you know what I mean (you’ll understand that comment when you take his tour). Tony showed up at our hotel on time and took us on a very pleasant tour of the ring of Kerry and places in between. He finds out what you like and recommends great points of interest. I usually just drive myself around but I’m really glad we took this tour as I would never have found the great spots that Tony knows, he seems to know every bump in the road. The only tiring part of the trip was getting in and out of the car to take hundreds of photos of all the wonderful scenic views. I’ll be recommending this trip to friends and family. Thanks for a great day Tony, you’re the best.

Thanks for great opinion. Tony will be really happy and all of us are really glad that You had a nice tour. Hopfly see You again. Kind regards Peter.
Fantastic Day

We booked the trip a couple of days in advance and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The driver, Brian, was extremely friendly, knowledgable and brought us to places my parents had never been to, and they have been going to Kerry for 50 years! Also this tour goes to areas the buses cannot reach due to the roads. The van would fit 5-6 people very comfortably and the freedom to stop where you like for how long you choose really makes the day.

Thanks Ronan for great review. I really appreciate it. If You ever need guide in Ireland , we will be ready. Regards Brian.
So happy we booked this tour!

This tour was fantastic. We had Will Fleming, who has received numerous other excellent reviews ... and we found out why. He’s very informative on so many fronts - history, politics, economics, nature, etc., all while he navigates the windy, often narrow roads of the ring. He was also very accommodating to our needs, including access by car to the cliffs of Kerry, which is normally not allowed, and finding us a charming lunch spot on our personal time table. Compared to a large bus tour or trying to enjoy this trip in our own car, this tour is a no brainer, so happy we booked it!!
Peter was amazing
, Mar 2019
We booked this tour of the ring of Kerry, even though we had rented a car, because I’ve read that the roads are pretty treacherous in some parts and with tour buses, it was a difficult trip. I am so glad I did! We were driving in from Dublin that morning and Peter stayed in communication with us via telephone to schedule a pick up time. He picked us up promptly at the Holiday Inn in Killarney, and he was so knowledgeable about the area. We saw a waterfall, and cliffs, and castles, and beautiful beach and country side views. Some I had suggested and some he had. We even stopped at a quaint authentic Irish pub for a bathroom break and a pint. He talked to us about the history or Kerry and Ireland along the way, and it was a really great tour. Definitely worth the money. There were 4 of us, and we all enjoyed ourselves. We weren’t squished in a car either. He had a 6 seater car that made the trip even more interesting. Thanks Peter!
Perhaps our expectations were too high...

Perhaps our expectations were too high, but we were expecting a tour, not just a taxi ride. Our driver was very accommodating, pleasant and brought us to the beautiful sights of the Ring of Kerry, plus an additional couple of requests we made. However, we were anticipating context and insight in addition to the ride as is typical for tours. Even more disappointing, the taxi that arrived to bring the 4 of us for our 9 hour excursion was very uncomfortable for 3 adults in the back seat.
