Peter Sommer Travels : Exploring Ireland

By mrc on 11 Aug 2017

Rating for this holiday 5

Absolutely fabulous 10 day trip around the island, exploring the culture, history, and beauty of Ireland - not to mention the cuisine! Led by a wonderful, knowledgeable, and very personable pair of guides. Accommodates were over the top - everything from castles to lovely country homes, surrounded by beautiful gardens.

A Fantastic Time Exploring Ireland

We have enjoyed four prvfious tours with Peter Sommer Travels (PST) and we had been searching for a high quality, small group tour of Ireland. Thus, when PST offered the Exploring Ireland tour, we booked withou hesitation. The main tour guidewas Heinrich Hall with whom we had toured twice before and whom we admired for all the reasons you get to "love" a fine tour guide. As usuall with PST tours the itinerary was varied and interesting. The food was always excellent and abundant. The accomodation were all very fi e and, more importantly, uniquely charming - highlights of the trip in and of themselves. Our local guide was Dr. Siobhan Hargis and she proved to be as knowledgeable and as caring and considerate as Heinrich. One could not possibly ask for two more wonderful tour guides. People who choose PST archeology-focused tours may be seen as at least a somewhat self-selected group and, tnus, it is small wonder that our group was a "success" from the start - we met wonderful people, made new friends, and had fun exploring Ireland with them. All or most of us were "alumni" of one or more previous PST tours and that says a lot about the quality of the tours. After this wonderful tour experience, I indicated my eagerness to sign-up for future tours, so I believe that documents my complete pleasure with, and enthusiam for, the Exploring Ireland tour offered for the first time by Peter Sommer Travels.

Exploring Ireland with Peter Sommer Travels

Our first visit to Ireland. We chose Peter Sommer Travels as our tour operator given previous experiences with Peter Sommer Travels. The tour itinerary had been thoroughly researched prior to commencement, the hotels extremely comfortable, mostly country houses and the restaurants, whether in the hotels or stand alone, offering a range of fares, from haute cuisine to country kitchen, all worthy of a return visit and high recommendation. The coach was immaculate and superbly comfortable with a seating configuration which had seats facing each other, separated by tables. This configuration allowed for conversation and interaction between the guests and the guides. The two guides Siobhan and Heinrich , both academics, are superbly versed in their subjects and able to impart their knowledge to their audience in a manner which maintained interest and was suitably peppered with humour. They also hosted the group in an exemplary manner at the dinner table and structured the daily itineraries to afford the guests personal space and comfort.

Seamlessly organized with academic guides who knew how to impart knowledge without ever being patronizing. They combined humour, patience and professionalism in equal parts. Well done, Peter Simmers Tours, for the third time!
