Thanks to our driver Mike for a great day trip! Overall a great tour featuring highlights of the Ring of Kerry. If you happen to have a car (like we did) I always recommend a day tour which will provide an overview of sites, then you can drive yourself another day and take a little longer at sights. Deros is a great local tour operator and we always favor the smaller buses.

Deros Tours provided us with a great day! This was a last minute decision as I had considered driving the Ring myself, but changed my mind. Parts of the drive I could have done, but other parts...NOPE. So glad we took this trip instead. Our driver was amazing and so very entertaining balanced with informative. We made an unexpected (additional cost) visit to learn about sheep herding and it was AMAZING! Well worth the extra few Euros. We never felt rushed and our driver kept us on time with the right amount of time allotted for photo stops and lunch. EXCELLENT!

Ray was very informative, friendly and flexible. He made sure everyone had a great day. There were 10 people on the tour, and the trip was beautiful. This is a great idea when the weather is good or bad. There were stops at beautiful places and there was more than enough to see. During the lunch break, we had a nice talk about farming related topics. Ray is open and interested to talk about all kinds of topics. Thanks for the great time!

The driver was knowledgeable, polite, and very competent. The only criticism is that the seats are quite narrow. I’m a small person (5’3” and 120 lbs) and felt a little squished sitting in the window seat next to my husband.

This tour was well worth the time and money spent! Michael was our tour guide and he was just great. He was knowledgeable about the area and Ring, punctual, patient, and just a pleasure in general.

The chosen stops included Dingle Bay, Ladie's View, Torc Waterfall and a handful of other amazing points that you wouldn't want to miss. The views were everything you would expect to see out of Ireland and more! If you're planning a trip to Ireland and not looking to drive the Ring yourself, this is the way to go!

(I haven't uploaded any photos quite yet, but take my word, your camera roll will be stocked.)

Six of us went on a private tour in a Mercedes van on the Ring of Kerry. It was a nice respite from driving the very narrow roads in a van. Ray was our driver....very informative. Provided lots of history and we were able to make lots of stops, even finding the house where one of our parties mother lived where he even met a cousin. Definitely worth the additional money taking a private tour. Make sure you get a Ray!

I joined the Ring of Kerry full-day tour with Deros the last week of September 2018. I must say that the tour itself was quite nice, with great photo stops along the way.

As a solo traveller, however, I felt I was unfairly treated when seats were being assigned prior to boarding the coach. When I reported to the office, I was told to come back 20 minutes later. All the while, multiple people (non-solo travellers) reporting to the office after me for the exact same tour were being assigned seats. When asked why this was the case, I was not given a straight answer. Then the lady suggested I could take the 'pilot' seat (the fold-down seat right by the steps near the coach door). When I refused she reluctantly assigned me a proper seat. Notwithstanding special circumstances and within reason, seat assignment should be done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

After self-driving on the VERY narrow roads in Ireland on the left side of the road, it was an absolute pleasure to take the tour of the Ring of Kerry and Killarney National Park with Ray as our driver and tour guide! The sights were amazing, and we learned a lot about the landscape and history of this beautiful country.

Nice bus tour around Ring of Kerry with some stops. We had a group of ten and enjoyed the tour but there were a few minor negatives. First, the lunch spot they stopped at wasn't good - one of the less remarkable meals of our trip. Also they made us throw out 10 coffees before getting on the bus as there was a "no coffee" "no ice cream" rule for the bus. Then of course we stop for $6 irish coffees and ice cream later on as part of the tour - maybe coincidence but was annoying.

THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN POSTED TO US IN ERROR THIS WAS NOT OUR TOUR COMPANY..... I have confirmed with our driver/guide and none of his passengers threw away any coffees and lunch stop was in a village where you have a choice of a lot of restaurants . Also on our tour we did not stop for Irish coffees/ice-cream later that day. However I am very sorry to hear that you found your tour annoying next time you are in Killarney book with us and we can guarantee you a great tour.

My wife and I decided to wait until we got to Killarney to decide whether or not to do a day tour because we weren't sure our 17 month old daughter could make it through. We were staying at Fairview Hotel in Killarney and the morning of the tour we asked Reception to book us a tour. We are so glad he booked us with Michael from Deros Sightseeing Tours! Michael picked us up from the hotel and after stopping by their office in the city center to pick up more passengers, we were on our way. The coach was clean, new, had USB plugs above the seats so you could charge your phone, wi-fi was free on-board, and spacious. Michael was a great driver (clearly an expert driving on narrow roads) and tour guide. He pointed out everything of interest as we drove by. When we had stops, he let us know how much time we had, but didn't rush. This gave us time to do what we needed such as take photos, have lunch, or whatever we were doing at that particular stop. At the end of the tour, he dropped people off where he had picked them up and helped folks off the bus. We can not say enough about Michael and Deros Tours and highly recommend them!

Wow ! What an amazingly nice and comprehensive review Darrin - thank you very much for taking the time and going to the trouble of writing and posting it up here on trip advisor. Michael said it was a pleasure having you do the tour with us and is very grateful for all the kind comments that you made. He is indeed a excellent driver/guide and he's professional and fantastic attitude helps us to stay a highly recommended tour company in Ireland. We hope that we will have the pleasure of your company again at some stage in the not -too- distant future and we hope you have lots of happy Irish memories.
