This is a really great tour! You get a lot in for 1 day. *BE CAREFUL* though if you get motion sickness even relatively easily! This would be a problem for ANY bus tour you take over less forgiving terrain, not just this one, but if you're prone to getting sick in a simple car ride, it is 10x worse on a bus. Fortunately, it was a slow day when I took the tour, so there were only a handful of other people on the bus I was on to witness this; unfortunately, I threw up on two separate occasions from getting so sick (I went to the back and had a bag ready the second time). The tour guide, though--whose name I regrettably forget since I waited several months to review this--was so chill about it it was insane. Due to the small group, we had a bit of extra time, so he also made a special stop along the road to visit a sweet local donkey and we got to feed it an apple. 5 stars for the tour but extra stars for the tour guide.

this tour exceeded all expectations. the cliffs were breathtaking and obviously worth the trip, but every other stop the bus made, from the castle to the impromptu coastal stop was so beautiful and worthwhile. our driver John was incredibly kind, welcoming, knowledgeable and hysterical! we would recommend to anyone.

We really enjoyed this bus tour. We felt very well taken care of and enjoyed all of the sights. Our guide, Mark B, did a great job of navigating the roads and keeping us on track.

A wonderful tour. Our driver John was able to tell us a lot about the country and its people and was very committed. We can only recommend the tour

John the tour guide was very knowledgeable, personal and approachable.
