    Testimonials

    • Once more a big thank you for a gorgeous week with splendid weather (which probably was none of your doing) and your splendid company (which certainly was a lot of your doing).  As if I hadn’t known: Connemara is a very beautiful spot on Gods earth.

    • Many thanks for a well-planned trip. We had a blast. The hiking was fantastic…no rain…accommodating and lovely B&B’s…nice folks along the way…. just beautiful. We enjoyed a new play at the Abbey Theater and saw everything on our list in Dublin! Thanks for all your great instructions and helpful suggestions. I have recommended you to some friends from Arizona going this summer.

    • The walk you led was one of the best trips David and I have enjoyed. I have been thinking about why that is so. Ireland itself is beautiful scenery, lovely friendly people. But Ireland is not alone in having those attributes.
      I decided the factor which contributed the most to our enjoyment was the fact that you were able to create a group of friends out of people who just met at the airport. That is very special, and one of the reasons I think Teresa is a very lucky woman (and from your comments,she too is very special).
      So again heartfelt thanks for leading us on a wonderful walk through gorgeous vistas.
