Family visit to Waterford and Kilkenny
Sue_K, Aug 2023
We had a wonderful experience. Everything went like clock work. Picked up on time. Itinerary as described. Our guide was good natured and knowledgeable. She even worked in lunch which I had left out. My Mother loved and collected Waterford crystal. She would have loved the tour of the factory. The 7 of us had a memorable day. 3 generations traveling together.

Not worth the $1,000- take a cab
w2stcy9zkt, Jul 2022
Most importantly, the guide was great. The car was wonderful. My issue is two fold. First, the ad promises paid tickets to three sites. No tickets were provided to any site. Most importantly, we arrived at Waterford Crystal, and fortunately were able to buy late tickets. None were even reserved and space was limited. We were lucky to see the tour. Second, even if you travel only occasionally, you don’t need this. This tour is for older folks or those who never travel. For $1,000, this just doesn’t have value. You can take a taxi to Killarney and buy the the tickets yourself. It is a small place. Waterford Crystal is on the main drag. You could spend $200 (including tickets) or pay $1,000 and get a fancy 30 minute ride with no tickets (though you paid for them).
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Rob, We are very surprised by your comments about our Waterford tour. All the admissions are included on this tour. We had spoken with our driver/ tour guide and he guarantee us, gave you all the vouchers to show on the gates/ receptions for each site, so I am wondering what did you do with the vouchers, please? In any case we verified that Kilkenny Caslte has no charge you anything extra nor has Rothe House. About Waterford Crystal, you haven´t show the voucher or identified yourself on reception that is the reason you pay again, so if you get in touch with us on private mode though our email: topprivatetoursuk@gmail.com, we will be happy to pay you back these 2 tickets. Regarding, use a taxi to do this tour, it is a good option but I doubt any taxi driver has the area knowledge of a driver/ tour guide. About your comment: it is a tour for seniors people, I have never thought that acquiring knowledge and general culture was limitid to that sector of population Many Thanks Pilar Gonzalez
Wonderful day with a great guide.
Diane_K, Jun 2022
Wonderful guide! Our guide was very knowledgeable and flexible. He is from the area and knows the history and culture - very informative. He gave us a really great tour and taste of Waterford and the Kilkenny area. Highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
