It is the responsibility of each visitor to read the terms and conditions of your booking. Your booking is bound by these terms.
Passage to Ireland: Private Tours Ireland is an incoming tour operator providing a ‘land only’ service. Private Tours Ireland therefore is not responsible for passenger travel into or out of the state of Ireland. Exploring may sell airline tickets as part of an affiliate program but all responsibility for the sale of the airline rests with the licensed agent. Private Tours Ireland will not be responsible for any delays, cancellations or other hindrance of passage to Ireland.
Escorted Drivers: Private Tours Ireland will provide those visitors choosing an escorted tour with a personal driver/guide. The driver will also act as the guide for the duration of the tour. Where numbers dictate, Private Tours Ireland will designate a driver and an additional guide. The driver will act as guide throughout the passage of Ireland. At designated attractions around Ireland the driver will pass over to the guide at the designated attractions. It should be noted that some attractions are self guided and each visitor will be expected to self guide within the attractions as required. The driver/guide will not normally enter the attraction but will wait outside for the visitors to return to the vehicle. The drivers are allocated to the visitors for eight hours driving per day (an additional hour will be designated within the day for lunch). For the purposes of health and safety the drivers unless in exceptional circumstances undertake driving beyond these hours. Driving is defined as a period from the commencement of the tour to the conclusion of the tour for that day and not timed on a basis of continuous driving for eight hours. Private Tours Ireland considers the safety of its visitors and staff of paramount importance. The drivers will at all times obey the rules of the road. Each escorted tour will commence between 9am and 10am each days and run for 9 hours from start. In some circumstances the tour can start at an earlier or later time but the reasons for the change should be brought to the attention of a member of Private Tours Ireland as soon as possible.
Insurance: Private Tours Ireland is not responsible for any personal injury, property damage or loss a guest incurs arising from acts or omissions by any hotel or other organization. Private Tours Ireland accepts no responsibility for cancellations of or interruptions to a tour due to delay or changes in schedules, flight cancellations, sickness, weather, strikes, war, quarantine, mechanical breakdowns, the actions of any government, weather, acts of God or circumstances beyond its control or for expenses or losses incurred as a result of any such circumstances. To guard against such unforeseen circumstances, we recommend you purchase a travel insurance plan before you travel to Ireland.

"Hi Martin - I wanted to let you know how much you were appreciated by our group on our trip through Ireland. I count it as a big blessing that I found you through the internet. It is a unanimous consensus that you were the perfect person to transport us along those ancient highways. Such courage in spending two weeks in a van with eleven women!
