My mother, sister, and I just returned from our trip to Ireland. We started the trip with a tour of Co. Meath, and it couldn't have been a better way to start! Derek was our tour guide and he was absolutely wonderful. He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. His passion for the area and sites was obvious. He was also very flexible with my indecisiveness of what I wanted to see!
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the area and learning along the way! And don't forget to ask for Derek. You will love it!

What a wonderful time we had on our tour with Derek. He is very knowledgeable about the area and really helped with access to Newgrange. Picked us up at the hotel and off we were for a fun day. We even saw areas of Dublin that we hadn't expected to see. We liked the personal attention of the tour as he arranged lunch, got us to the sites before the crowds arrived and so we were first in to enjoy them. Derek had wonderful family stories to tell as he is from that area. He kept us entertained all day. Thank you for such a great introduction to Ireland.

We recently went on this tour at the recommendation of a friend... and wow, did she know how to pick them! We had Derek as our driver, and we couldn't have asked for a more professional, courteous, or friendly man to show us around. Derek is a man who knows his country, and is passionate about the places he takes you to. He showed us some wonderful sights, including quite a few that don't get shown on local tour buses. He even made it a point of getting out of the car at every stop, introducing us to the locals, and arranging group discounts for us. In some spots, he even acted as our tour guide. Derek's demeanor was very relaxed. He never pushed us to meet a timeline, and was respectful of how long we wanted to take at each location. The price we pair for Derek was incredible, and considering the experience we had with him, the money was far better spent on a man like him versus another busload of tourists. Highly recommended!!

: I can't say enough about how terrific our day with Derek was! We were initially interested in seeing Newgrange and ended up getting so much more out of the day. We were able to see far more of beautiful county Meath than we thought possible. Derek's tour was one of the highlights of our time in Ireland. It is clear that he is passionate about Meath and dedicated to exposing tourists to all the county has to offer.

We were a group of 7 friends of varied interests who wanted a small group tour of some of the popular sites near Dublin during our vacation.
What we got was a fantastic trip through time with Derek, who took us not only to the "popular" tourist spots, but also to some off-the-beaten path locations. He was engaging, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about what he was sharing with us.
The cost for our tour was eminently reasonable, in fact we paid less per person than we would have on a "big bus" tour. Thank you again, Derek - you started our vacation off on a perfect note.

We came to Ireland to see New Grange; boy did we get so much more. The guide (Derek Smith) was very helpful and courteous.
We had a tight time schedule and the he made the day 10 times better because he allowed us to maximise the use of our time without making it feel like we were rushing. Next time we are back, we will definitely do another tour. I would recommend Derek Smith to anyone who wishes to have an educational and entertaining visit to Beautiful Meath..

Derek was a wonderful driver and took us to all the incredible sights in Meath. He was punctual and had knowledge of the area. He was very easy to work with.

My wife and I visited Ireland in October 2008 and had Mr. Derek Smith as our tour guide. He was an informative, knowledgeable, and very pleasant tour guide. He took us to exciting Irish restaurants to eat, and showed us the real Ireland. He opened up his family history by showing us his grandparents home, and other relatives. This is a great company to use to see areas that public bus tours would not show you. Derek we will be back with our family the next time!
