Nancy Gardner – Gardner Family Reunion Tour

Peter,

“Our trip to and from Ireland was absolutely picture perfect.  After last tour two years ago, I was a little nervous. It couldn’t have been better this time, like clockwork. The whole trip was fabulous. I didn’t realize the Glenveagh Natural Park was going to be so far a drive, but it was still good to see something new and I did love the Glenveagh Castle. Thank you for all you did to make it work like clockwork. I know you must have been pulling some strings along the way. It was good to see you again, thanks for joining us for breakfast”.

Diane Brennan – Enchanted Ireland Tour

Brack Tours, 

“My husband and I had an amazing time and it’s important to note that neither of us is really keen on traveling with tour groups. We are so glad we did! The logistics of visiting the various places were very well planned and helped to keep time on the bus to a minimum.  Additionally, I especially enjoyed a more relaxed tour setting.

We loved the changing weather.  It added so much to the whole experience as you could feel the “moodiness and ruggedness” of Ireland with the changing weather. This was certainly the case at Slieve League. The beauty was enhanced by the mist and wind and all that heather!

We had never really thought much about going to Ireland before as neither of us are of Irish descent but we both loved everything about it and kind of feel we are part Irish now!”

The Hughes Family – Best of The West Tour

Dear Brack Tours, 

“The glow from this dream has yet to fade. We had more fun than a human should be allowed without including monkeys. New friends and old were the joy that made this trip the adventure it was. Peter Clarke, our driver and tour guide, brought us to places beyond imagination, with knowledge and skill. He drove that huge coach as if it were a mini cooper, all the while, telling us stories of the most beautiful country on this earth”.

The Dalys – Music & Dance Around Ireland

Hi Peter, 

“Geof and I sure did have a GREAT time on your tour last week! Must say it was an adjustment not to hear your cheery, “Good Morning Everybody” when we got up!!! Don’t know how the tour could have been any better.

We loved all of your commentary and historical background, jokes, music, personal attention to every detail, and just getting to know you! Thanks again for getting my Nook reader in time! We lucked out with the weather as well. God was on our side for the tour!! The only down side to the tour, and this wasn’t your fault, but we needed MORE TIME!! You just want us to come, I know. He He He!!(That is you Laughing!!) Ireland really is a beautiful and photographic country, best of all were the friendly people – lovely. I hope we can come back one day and we wish you every success with the business. You do a great job! You da man! Now, “Get outta here!!”

Janet Watson – Makem & Spain Tour

James, 

“John and I had a wonderful time! We have heard nothing but great things from everyone that was in our group. Everyone preferred the smaller towns and country areas of Donegal and Connemara, to big cities like Dublin and Belfast. Finally, we ended up finding a pub that we loved and seen many of the beautiful sites in Ireland. We are discussing with Carol about our next group tour as it is the only way to travel in Ireland”.

Molly Kaklamanis – Carol Reed Annual Tour

Peter,

“Just returned from a wonderful visit to Ireland with the St. Brigid’s Sports Club, South Boston, MA, USA. The Brack Tours trip was made ever so extraordinary because of the remarkable assistance of your tour operations manager, Nuala Saul and Sinead Greaney of your staff. The professionalism, attitude, style and grace of these two women is outstanding and an asset to your company.

While we were in Ireland my sisters and I needed to have the original certified copies of our grandparent’s birth certificates because we hope to obtain dual citizenship and an Irish Passport. In addition, we had all of the required information of the dates and towns where they were born, but because of time constraints on the tour, we would not be able to arrive at the Registrar’s Office in Galway before closing time on a Friday. Both Nuala and Sinead went out of their way to assure that we would indeed acquire the documentation that was important to us by going to the authorities and securing the documents. The service that they performed went above and beyond what was hoped for because they made a difficult and unattainable task seem easy and uncomplicated. Nuala and Sinead are definite assets to your company”.

Group Tour Testimonials

Peter, 

“Words cannot express our level of appreciation. Your hard work making each day a memorable occasion. We really appreciated the varied daily activities -from abbeys to churches to farmhouses, to boat rides to castles to pubs. Mostly, we enjoyed your background knowledge of the varied places which was always communicated with a touch of Irish humor. I know it didn’t just happen and you were behind the scenes coordinating each activity. We certainly enjoyed your skillful driving – some of it in reverse! If you ever plan to be in the US to visit John and Joe, keep us in mind. We would get great pleasure in sharing a Guinness with you and the lads”.

Tom & Cecelia – Dady Brothers

To Maureen, Charlie, Peter, Nuala etc all,

“I have travelled quite a bit with my late husband and family members. Although, I hadn’t travelled in over 3 years just for myself. Frankly, I was ambivalent about it for a long time but, My God, Mary, am I glad I went. I have known Maureen and Karen for many years and was thrilled and grateful to make new friends. Peter is an absolute gem, kind, intelligent, funny and all around great person. Having Charlie was icing on our beautiful cake, my granddaughters play instruments and are very interested in his music and of course the wonderful friends of his who were nothing short of spectacular. There were so many special moments on this trip that it would take me days to relate.

In conclusion, anyone going to Ireland needs to do so on a BRACK TOUR! Unparalleled in every way. I plan to take my grand-daughter to Ireland. She is very interested in an exchange year at Trinity.

Thank you, a thousand times over”.

Nancy Birch – Music & Dance Around Ireland

Peter & Nuala,

“So just back yesterday from 8 glorious days on the Ballads, Bars and Backroads Tour hosted by Tom Sweeney and the “motorcoach” driven by the wonderful Peter Clarke. We had such a great time seeing the beautiful country of Ireland, listening to Peter and Tom explain the history and folklore of the old sod. Can’t even put into words how much fun it was. Site seeing during the days and listening to Tom and then the noble call singers, fiddler’s, poetry reciters and the momma limerick reciter it was none stop entertainment. So glad to see so many old friends and to make some new ones along the way.

Many Thanks to Brack Tours for the beautiful hotels and making sure everything went off without a hitch. Thanks also to Frances Sweeney and their wee daughter Finn. Not even attempting to spell that correctly. Thanks for helping behind the scenes. What a great time”.

Eileen McGinley – Tom Sweeney Tour

Dear Maura and Nuala,

“We have just put together our photo album from our wonderful tour of Ireland in June with Fr. Frank Richardson.

I want to specifically thank you for giving us an extraordinary driver and tour guide in Peter Clark.  He is a real “Renaissance man”, a skilled driver, and amazing guide! His Irish wit, hearty laugh, and encyclopaedic knowledge of history and current events truly made “Ireland come alive”!

We have many wonderful memories of our 10 days on the Emerald Isle and thank you for your organization and assistance”!

Schwendlers – Tour Ireland with Fr Frank

Dear Sinead,

“Many thanks for organising the Gillet tour in such a professional and thoughtful way and for your patience when some members of the group needed assistance. Everything in the program exceeded the expectations of the group and they all came away with a very high regard for Ireland. It is impossible to rank the various items in the program as they were all different and important to forming a picture of Ireland. The guides at all occasions were excellent.

It was nice of you to come around when we were in Galway (which gave some members of the group and opportunity to meet the person they had spoken to on the telephone).

Everybody returned to Sweden with a piece of Ireland in their hearts and I am sure they will all recommend Ireland as a prime target for a vacation”.

Bjorn – Djursholm’s Gille

Dear Peter,

“We wanted to write a note to let you know how much we appreciated your understanding of our situation and refunding our trip to Ireland. It was a gesture that overwhelmed us and one for which we are very grateful, your actions speak volumes that you care for your clients. These days too many companies talk about how much they care, but you proved that you have a commitment to your customers. If anyone asks about our experience with you, be sure we will share our positive thoughts on your caring and customer service. Thanks again for your commitment to your customers!”

The Siraks – Carol Reed Annual Tour

James, 

“The tour was excellent!! I would not make any changes. The dinner/show the last night was a great way to end the trip. We all had a great time and a lot of laughs. Peter adjusted the schedule to meet everyone’s needs. Thank you and Peter for an excellent vacation/Holiday”!!
