We were very pleased with the features chosen and the variety chosen which gave us a great insight into the history and a feel for the present, along with the show casing the beauty of Ireland.

The driver and the guide were excellent in their interaction and their commentary and his driving ability.

We did indeed enjoy the extra insight that the "Back Roads" gave us.
