“I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week tour with Walter’s Way Tours! There were 10 of us on the tour, and he took the time to understand each of our interests and incorporate them in the tour. We saw many lovely sights that other tours would not have been able to take us on. If you book a tour with Walter’s Way Tours you’ll be getting the best experiences around Ireland! He was very flexible with whatever we wanted to do, and he was well organized. He is so knowledgeable and easy to get along with! I definitely had one of the best experiences of my life through Walter’s Way Tours!”
