We just got back from an incredible trip touring Ireland and Scotland. This was a trip that had been on our bucket list for many years. We are in our 70’s and we knew we wanted a private tour (no driving for us!) and after much research, we found Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Over the course of the next 17 months, we worked with many wonderful people at ICT, who answered our endless questions and emails to finalize our amazing itinerary. 
Our personal driver guide, Paul Feehan, was the BEST!! He listened to us and took the time to make what we wanted…happen. Basically, Paul made our wishes come true. Paul started out as our driver guide but by the time we said goodbye in Edinburgh, he had become our friend. 
We will always remember this trip with fondness and we can thank Ireland Chauffeur Travel for that!
