We were given the wrong address on the ticket and the email that was sent the day before. The guide hiked up to find us when we weren’t at the newer location. Though we had a rough start, the guide and tour were 5 Stars and beyond. We enjoyed the information and sites. We especially appreciated the guide nicely, but pointed asking people to not talk while he is giving his tour talks. There were plenty of opportunities to speak with friends between the history bits, and we had some chatty people in the group. It was difficult to hear over the chatting, which is why it was nice that he asked them to be courteous and wait until after his history bits to resume talking. The guide was very polite about it.

Very entertaining driver whose English was easy to understand. Again and again great stops and enough time to look. So you can enjoy the panorama perfectly. The driver was very careful that all groups and couples can sit together. Unfortunately the organization was a bit chaotic at the beginning as the office in Killarney is closed. The bus arrives from Cork. The driver therefore picked us up on Main Street a little late and led us to a larger parking lot. Killarney's phone number is therefore no longer available: it's best to call Cork.

loved the guide, hated the organisation. -this tour is not really a tour, but a part of a bigger one based in Cork, i suppose a honest description would mention that. However it shouldn't be an issue if organization was ok, which it wasn't. -the meeting point was Killarney paddywagon office 10:40. The bus arrived at 11:30 and we left at lunch time (11:53). In addition to the delay, there was zero support or info about the delay from paddywagon (number on getyourguide app was invalid) - despite the meeting point being their office on a Monday. None was there. We found out later that we were waiting while people from the Cork tour were doing a horse tour in Killarney before rejoining the bus. -no seating plan in bus, so sitting together for couples was made difficult since no plan was made for lone travelers when joining the existing tour. This created some tension for some travelers. To sum up, overall the tour was great and we loved our guide, but the organisation was a bit messy.
