Enjoyable and informative introduction to the city of Cork. Easy bike riding mostly away from traffic. Guide was knowledgeable about the city history. A pleasant and worthwhile addition to a city visit.

Dáibhidh was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and provided lots of interesting insight for us. This is a relatively easy ride for all levels of experience.

Really enjoyable, informative, and friendly. Provided a great introduction to the city and points of interest. Very knowledgeable on the history of the city. The only downside was lack of clear directions on the parts of the tour when on roads, especially if group includes nervous cyclists.

What a great experience the 8-Day Tour with Beyond the Glass was!

From the beginning of the booking process to the drop-off and e-contact after the tour, I felt that my vacation was in good hands. At all times James, tour guide and owner of the company, was very attentive and showed great flexibility for adapting to our wishes and needs. His Irish spirit and love for the country were apparent and he did a great job in inspiring similar feelings in me.

The tour's itinerary is thought through very well and combines the most important spots with calmer areas and hidden gems - giving a chance for an all-around Irish experience. James' knowledge of the regions travelled, as well as their history, flora and fauna was very impressive and I learned loads during the tour.

Besides the great hikes, cycles and traveling parts, there was ample opportunity to explore Irish culture and cuisine (with the group and alone). Both the restaurants and accomodations chosen for our group were of excellent quality and made the trip even more enjoyable.

To summarise: The tour was a perfect combination of activities along the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way with many interesting insights into Irish history and culture making for a fun and memorable trip. If you want to explore Ireland "beyond the glass" you will be in the right place on one of James' tours! :)

Tour was great. Guide did an awesome job of explaining the history of cork. A couple of hills but all manageable. Highly recommended. Gave me a better appreciation for the city.

Wonderful 8 day tour around the wild Atlantic Way. Edwina, our driver and guide really knew the ropes and the ways around and also gave great overview of the context of the many places we visited. It was great there were only 12 people on the tour. I was the only Australian with 11 Americans but we all had lots of fun.
The tour included excellent accomodation and 4 star eating options, free time to explore and interesting historical places to visit. The Skelligs Michael boat tour was a personal highlight for me and we were lucky the boat could brave the seas on the day we booked.
The tour also listened to the preferences of the travellers and made and effort to include them.
Highly recommend this Company .

Simply amazing! You never know what you will get when booking a tour: hotels, people, activities. Traveling with Beyond the Glass was as close to perfect as you can get. I was traveling with my wife and upper teenage kids.

James is not just the guide, he owns the company. His lifelong love of Ireland came clearly through even before the tour started.

Hotels were great, every one of them. James personally knew many of the proprietors, which afforded us some special access along the way.

Activities. I wanted an active, adventurous holiday, and got just that. From the first bike ride, through challenging hikes in rain and shine. We got an excellent taste of many of the core Ireland tour spots and even more off the beaten track ones.

Group. We were a small group, 12 in all. The van is quite comfortable, even when full. The group consisted of people from their late teens and into their 50s. We all got along quite well, which makes for an even better experience.

Bottom line. I am 100% happy with my choice to join the Beyond the Glass tour rather that go it alone. I would not have chosen one of the larger, more sedate tours. My family feels the same way.

Hello Geoff, Thank you for this wonderful review. It is great to read that you enjoyed your tour of the Wild Atlantic Way. The few days of rain that we did get, did not dampen your spirits nor did it stop you enjoying the activities. I was looking back on the videos of the tour and it is amazing to see the smiling faces, even while you were hiking in the Irish rain. It was a pleasure to host the four of you on the tour and I enjoyed all our conversations as we travelled. Thank you! James

What a fantastic week we had on the 8 day Wild Atlantic Way tour. This was our first group tour and we had a blast. James offered a perfect amount of activity each day and every day was different, beautiful, and exciting. James was a great tour guide and really cared about giving us a meaningful and fun experience. Besides learning a lot from him about the history of Ireland, he was a really fun guy to hang around with during our week. If you want an active, but not hard-core experience in Ireland, this is the trip for you!

Guide was very knowledgeable and we went all over the city. We had a intimate group, which is good with city biking. We toured for about 3 hours.

James did a fabulous job. He had just the right amount of hiking or biking each day and he chose beautiful locations. We liked every hotel we stayed in and the food was great. I appreciated that James gave us suggestions of places we could go in the evening by recommending restaurants or pubs with authentic Irish music. Also, James took good care of us. For example, he was very helpful in calling the airlines for us when our luggage was delayed, or ordering an e-bike for me when I was nervous about a particular ride. He always made sure to individualize a hiking path if someone in our group needed an easier route -they were able to do that and meet us at the end. Lastly, James shared great information about Ireland and he was just an all around good, caring, fun guy.

Hello Carol, Thank you for the review. It was easy to host you and Art on the tour. You were up for the activities and you were not fazed. Even the cancelled flights and lost luggage didn't stop you from enjoying the wonderful Wild Atlantic Way. Thank you very much, James
