When deciding on which “way” you wish to “experience” Ireland there are many options available to you.
There are single advantages to the first three but number four has the major advantage of having all of the advantages of the first three combined.
1. Self drive with Guide Books- ( You get to see Ireland at your own pace and get off the beaten path)
2. Organized Coach tour ( Its comfortable, convenient and you don’t have to think to much about the roads)
3. Bicycle or Hiking Tour – (Its slow enough that you can mingle with locals and take lots of nice pictures)
4. Private Guided Tour. - (slow/ fast, intimate, guided, expertise, comfortable, convenient, relaxing, memorable)
The private guided tour option has the best of the other options as it give you the relaxed pace of the self drive, the comfort and convenience of the coach tour and the photo opportunities of the Bicycle Tour.
It also has the benefits of being completely private so you get to travel at your own chosen route with an expert who will add flavour and colour at every turn of the journey.
The “Private Guided Tour” as the very best option to see a “scenic touring country” like Ireland in style.
