With having no experience in Ireland, it was really nice to have the activities pre-planned to help keep us busy while getting to know the areas. Starting out with the electric bike tour in Dublin allowed us to get the lay out of the land. The sea kayak tour allowed us to find some cool castles and towns during the drive to the kayak location. Loved that we did a bus tour to the cliffs of Mohr. That drive is insane. Definitely do not recommend driving yourself. Really loved all of the pubs and music scene.
Our trip was perfectly planned by Marilen for two weeks in two countries. I liked feeling like we got the good highlights of everywhere we visited and didn’t feel rushed. We had such a great variety… electric bike tours, driving, bus tours, Guinness tours, Sea Kayak tour, Castle tours, Edinburgh Military Tattoo… Ireland and Scotland are amazing and the people are wonderful. It was so cool to have people at all of our tours know we were on our honeymoon. We have much more to explore. Now we need to go back to check out southern and Northern Ireland and southern Scotland!

I normally travel on my own. Research my own itineraries, accommodations, etc. but sometimes you can hit a wall. Marilen had much more access to a database I could only dream of. Having studied woodworking abroad before, I approached my upcoming woodworking study trip to Vietnam the same as always but was coming up short. I couldn’t find the exact kind of intensive learning programs I wanted to experience if I’m flying halfway across the world.
Not only did she find me a master woodworker, she found me THE master woodworker. She handled the logistics and set me up with a charming flat near the shop and a translator for the first day just in case I needed one. What occurred was a once in a lifetime experience. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for assistance in planning their next trip, no matter if you’re looking for luxury or off the beaten path.

The trip was SO perfect. Truly. I don’t have one complaint. And the excursions could not have gone better. The personalized service was out of this world and made the trip feel incredibly intimate and meaningful for my mom and me. Each excursion we did had an even better tour guide/host. And the personal driver was AMAZING. I’m so happy we went with that. The family owned vineyard we did the grape stomp, that was my favorite activity/day. Again, I couldn’t get over how intimate and personal the whole experience felt. The truffle hunting experience was a VERY close second for the same reason. I also really appreciated getting to know the culture on a close level. Oh! The cooking lessons were so different experience-wise and perfect in their own way. The chef whose house we went to and cooked with was something I will never forget. Truly a perfect trip. I can’t thank you enough; I know we wouldn’t have had half the incredible experience we did without you and your team’s help. So, thank you.
