Dear Mr Michael Reaney,
My husband, Matthew, and I are from America (Palm Springs, California) and we recently enjoyed a tour with our Dutch friends, Simon and Nancy Molenaar, through Ireland. The four of us toured with 24 others from Monday, June 24th, to Monday, July 1st. The tour was through the Kras Travel Agency; our tour guide was Dorien and our driver was Clifford. I hope this email address is okay to write to express our gratitude for Cliff’s professionalism and kindness.
Clifford is a FANTASTIC ambassador for the Reaney of Galway bus company. He has a terrific personality, smiled often, was extraordinarily patient with a group of elderly Dutch travelers, and worked tirelessly with Dorien to make our trip interesting and special. In fact, the driver/tour guide relationship was exceptionally synchronistic and professional. Above everything, Cliff is an absolutely safe and smooth driver. He ceded the roadway to faster moving traffic, drove at a comfortable speed, used the breaks gently and accelerated smoothly. While the substitute driver that drove for one day was also a good and professional driver, Cliff’s style of driving was patient, smooth and very conducive to sightseeing and picture taking.
As we embarked and disembarked the bus at each tour stop and at the end and beginning of each day, he cheerfully greeted us and always had a happy remark to make to bring a smile to our face. Throughout our days, he was appropriately playful with everyone and because of that, we looked forward to seeing him each day and throughout the day as we made stops to sightsee. He was glad to share his knowledge of the areas we traveled and never once conducted himself in a way that could remotely be perceived as anything but him being the consummate professional. Each day the bus was ready to go on time, things were picked up and clean and he was good to have water available for us to buy – that was very appreciated.
I took over 4,000 photos during our week long tour and was glad to snap a picture or two of him along the way. He will always be an endearing memory for my husband and me and for our two friends – indelibly etched into the history of our terrific vacation. He is a treasure – a real gem – authentic and kind and we are glad to have made his acquaintance.
I felt it important to let you know that you have a fantastic employee on staff and I hope you’ve heard from others as well.
Matthew and Sylvia Baran

A Note Of Thanks To Reaney’s of Galway,
We recently had the pleasure of being driven by Nigel and Paul each day to La Thuile to ski. Their interaction with our group was superb and they helped to make our week amazing and easy. They joined in with our singing, supported our students and did your company proud. Recognition is deserved – two great chaps!

We’ve just returned from our school ski trip to Italy with Interski and were super-impressed with the coaches and the drivers you provided for us. As such, I’ve requested that our tour operator get in touch with you to see if you would be able to do our Tour again next year.
All the best,

“Nice Trip, Nice Company”
“The trip through Ireland exceeded our expectations, partly by the tour guide and driver. Through the stories they could tell about Ireland, the Irish music that turned them on the bus and the ability to deviate from the program, if any, what was created itself is it became an unforgettable trip”
