Fabulous private tour

We had a fabulous time with Fergal. The tour is perfectly paced, takes you to multiple hidden gems on the Northern Irish coastline, and we never felt rushed. Fergal is a very knowledgeable and thoughtful guide who takes great care to ensure that the tour is tailored to your interests. It is an amazing introduction to Irish history and culture.

Hi again both of you and thank you so much for being with me on my first journey in over six months after such a difficult and challenging period for our travel industry and for travellers worldwide. You were super guests, engaging and appreciative all day long. I enjoyed your company from the moment we met outside your hotel and I really was genuinely sad to say farewell to you both. Keep in touch in the months and years ahead. More adventures await and I would love to be your host for all of them. Keep safe and keep travelling my friends. I'll be here waiting you both. Thank you!

It's just awesome, game of thrones or none game of thrones fan one must do this trip. It's absolutely fantastic and shows real life of northern Ireland Worth every penny from the car to the locations to the guide , make sure you book in advance and just enjoy It's complete fun and private trip Fragey will take you to places where there is no visitors in 99 percent of the trip so what you would see you won't see with any travel operators Thanks Fragey, see you soon

My husband and I took this tour with Fergal. He picked us up at the cruise terminal and off we went. We saw everything Fergal could show us in the short port day we had there. We went through the backroads and saw things no one else did that day. It was incredible and the scenery was breathtaking. This is more of an intimate tour which is what I wanted. I didn't want to be on a coachbus. If you get carsick definitely take some medicine before hand as the roads or windy and sit in the front! I was fine but those roads are windy. I would highly recommend skipping the Giant's Causeway and having Fergal take you to more local spots. The causeway was something we wanted to see and it was a nightmare. When we come back to Northern Ireland we will definitely do this tour again!

Hi there you lovely people and thank you so much for such an amazing review of your time here in my beautiful land. I hope that your journey wasn't too scary on our amazing backroads, but then I know that you trusted me with the driving. May you have many other amazing journeys and may I welcome both of you back soon to my delightful part of Ireland. Safe travels my beautiful friends!

If you want a great tour with a guide who is an expert of the area this is the one for you. He drove us to beautiful locations to enjoy without the crowds you get so tired of. We saw many of the spots where “Game of Thrones” were filmed along with several other locations that a normal tour would never go, not to mention a fabulous lunch.

Hi there Jan, this trip is an experience with a consummate professional and not a 'driver'. Thank you for your five star trip my lovely friend and I look forward to seeing you and your partner some time soon in my beloved Ireland.

Excellent tour. Off the beaten path of tourists with amazing views and places that only a local can show you. Awesome day. Can’t say enough good things about this tour. For sure the highlight of our trip to Ireland.

Terrific Tour with Fergal!

We had a great tour with Fergal in his Mercedes! It was a wonderful tour of great sites in Northern Ireland. Fergal really knows his way around this route, showing us all the sites. He's a great driver and was very friendly. When a local celebration had some roads closed, he took a detour without losing a beat and kept us on track to see everything on the tour. He is well known to the locals along the route, who gave us great service at every turn. I would definitely recommend Fergal for this tour!

The Emerald Isle

Furgal was our guide for the day and this was hands down the best tour we had while on the Island of Ireland. He went above and beyond to ask questions to get to know a little about our interests and thus tailored the tour for us. It was a beautiful sunny day and we now understand why Ireland is known as "The Emerald Island". We saw 100's of shades of green at any one time looking over the countryside hills and landscape. We saw off the beaten path places that were truly enchanting. I am so happy we took this tour and if we ever return to Ireland, will do it again and ask for Furgal once again.

Misleading, we didn't get a private tour and missed many stops

We booked the private tour of Belfast months in advance. The day before we contacted Fergal to confirm pickup and were told that one of their two vehicles had broken down and we would be joined by another couple. He said the same thing happened to two other couples two days earlier and they got along fine, saying it wouldn't be a problem. He told us that he was unavailable to personally lead this tour, which was unfortunate as we had read good reviews, but assured us that the other guides (his partners) were just as capable. On the day, we found out that our tour guide (I use this term loosely) did not work for Fergal's company, but was hired to drive us, using his own personal vehicle. The driver was friendly and polite, but missed many of the stops. We missed lunch as the other couple delayed us. We did miss several stops that we had wanted to see like the famed Dunluce castle. There wasn't any running commentary/ history about any of the sites. He nice but what was delivered is not what was advertised for this tour. Overall the day was okay, but didn’t meet our expectations based on the description of this tour. We did not receive the private tour we had booked (or offered a discount), and missed most of the advertised stops on the itinerary.

This would have been an amazing trip except for the fact that at the last minute the guide had to be replaced. He was great but had no knowledge of the sights that we were seeing so basically we had a great driver.

Thanks for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. As we operate as a small supplier, our aim is always to provide an experience that is of the highest quality, integrity and enjoyment. Unfortunately on this occasion our lead guide Fergal was unable to provide our usual five star service. We deeply regret that your day did not meet with your (and our) high expectations. I have noted your comments about our driver on the day and will pass them on to him as soon as possible. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Ireland and that you will consider our five star service next time!
