Scotland and Ireland trip was more than we expected! We were told by locals that the weather we experienced was the best that they have had in the past five years! We never had to use umbrellas or ponchos. Accommodations were outstanding, food was interesting and surprisingly good, specials were fun and interesting, sights and excursions were interesting, fun, and educational. So many memorable moments. The "Queen" was even at Holyrood Palace while we were in Edinburgh ... Lots of wonderful memories between the beginning of our trip and the close of our trip in Dublin - where we had the opportunity to view the books of Kells of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John ... It was the most congenial group of people I have ever traveled with on any of my trips! Many of us will stay in touch with each other. Our tour guide, Patrick, and our bus driver, Jim, were outstanding...friendly, knowledgeable, funny, caring, lovable. Davis and I will miss them! Sincerely, Pamela E. Witt and Davis Witt

It was a wonderful Ireland trip with a very knowledgable tour guide. Patrick and John did a great job bringing us to places in Ireland which have great historical significance to this country. The two Irish shows were fantastic and very entertaining and at the same time showed how the Irish struggled to come to its status now as a beautiful country. It was a trip worth remembering and keeping in my heart and memory.

It was wonderful and packed with charming surprises like Scotch tastings, tea with clotted cream and scones, and morning Irish coffees! It was informative, interesting, and full of an excellent variety of history, culture, beautiful landscapes, and fun! Both of our tour managers were great and we came home with lots of “Christina-isms” and “Cecilia-isms”. And both tour managers took good care of us including box breakfasts on the two days we had to be at the airport early. We also appreciated recommendations on pubs and restaurants such as the Dirty Duck in Bath or the Bracin in Waterford! We plan on traveling again with Gate 1 Travel. Mike and Pat Mickelson
