“We had the perfect vacation with ICT. Jeff did all of the work and we just enjoyed ourselves. He is the most knowledgeable tour guide. It was moving to hear the history of each place we visited, along with the country’s history, too. We shall cherish deeply all of the wonderful memories of our trip to Ireland.”
—Dr.and Mrs. Michael Halpin and sons; Kalamazoo, MI
“Globus is great, but Jeff is better! A trip like this gives you a more intimate experience of the country; the ability to get out among the people and interact. This is something that is lost when 60 people emerge from a bus. Also, the buses can't get to many of the "off-the-path" places that we enjoyed, which were some of the most meaningful. The spiritual "feel" of sacred sites could be savored in a small group. We could go to the gardens at Blarney Castle, which we enjoyed as much as the castle! We could switch plans based on the weather, interests and energy levels. Jeff, you were so gracious in sharing your knowledge and love of Ireland with us. Ours was a trip we will never forget!”
—Michele, Tom & Meredith Gossman, Kalamazoo, MI
“The road less traveled offers the true glimpse into Irish heritage, the triumphs and tragedies of a great nation, The road less traveled elevates the awesome Irish beauty in the nooks and crannies of far off places, The road less traveled reveals the common, decent, civilized Irish people, The road less traveled is where the leprechauns make their mischief and magic, We took the road less traveled. … We seemed to get more than our monies worth … while I can’t prove it, I have the feeling you actually saved us money!”
— Keith Vassau, Kalamazoo, MI
“ …there were amazing pastoral settings and breathtaking coastlines … we took a giant step backward in time to a slower-paced, farming environment, where talking over the problems of the world in the local pub is a valued and worthwhile thing to do … I love the endearing humor of the Irish and that every town has its own castle ... Americans are treated as welcomed friends where-ever we went … “
— Mimi Gabriel, Allegan, MI.
“ … Jeff, I enjoyed the trip very much - you did an excellent job of driving, showing us the interesting places, picking out great bed and breakfasts and bringing us to fun pubs, restaurants and the medieval banquet. I have nothing but good memories. It was a relaxing, stress free, and interesting trip.”
— Carol Cox, Holland, MI
“ … It was so lovely being in a new country and not having to worry about how to get places, arrange accommodations and figure out where to eat or shop! If I wanted to know anything about the country, either historically or currently, Jeff was a wealth of knowledge. His enthusiasm for Ireland was contagious and inspiring. This was a restful trip because of so many services being provided.”
— Chris Gulick, Atlanta, Georgia
“ … My identity has been completed by taking this trip … I loved the Sky Drive at Clifden. The first castle we visited … and, we were ALONE on the grounds for a while to explore and feel the magic.....All the sights were glorious......Trinity College, the library with all the history......Kylemore Abbey blew my mind. Also, the Newgrange Passage Tomb was very, very powerful! The BOYS (Ardgroom Stone Circle) was an enchanting site and had my imagination spinning as I stared at them all in a circle. Again, just us and the cows.....those moments were precious to me. Bunratty was a dream.....the singing......and feeling like I was being embraced with history and emotion that was pure and will always belong to me! The Muckross House and garden — wow!.... Your input was outstanding and the amount of knowledge you have to offer was more than perfect!
— Lucy Gabriel, Phoenix Arizona
