5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
All our tours sell well so this is a tough one to answer, if we were to pick one we would say our Dingle Way 8-day tour. Why, well I guess it is because of the Fantastic array of landscape, beauty, history and nature that the peninsula has to offer.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
Dear Mr. Stacey, I'm back in DC, and when my friends ask me how my trip was I explain to them that I am in a state of grace. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for the week you provided us. Who knew? Who woulda thunk? that it would be so, so, so, so very, as the Irish say, grand. Christopher, you should immediately change your title to "Spirit Guide." It suits you. Thanks for the kindness, stories and laughter, Molly
