Travel Reviews

With the new Friendship Four champion crowned in the SSE Arena, this was the last event of what was an unforgettable tournament and week-long travel experience in Ireland for Clarkson University, Providence College and RPI.

From a Titanic Thanksgiving celebration and the capital cities best hospitality to our expert local guides and safe and knowledgeable drivers – we did it all for you, in the name of wanting to show you an unforgettable time. After all, we treat our clients like the very translation of our name – ‘Chara’ is Irish for ‘Friend’…

Check out what this years travelers thought of their experience in Ireland and with Cara Group Travel.

Overall, my sister and I had a wonderful trip. Though we joined the trip Wednesday, we were made to feel welcome. The Europa was fantastic. The McCombs Day Tour of the Antrim Coast was a highlight so thank you for recommending them.

Thanksgiving at Titanic Belfast was memorable and delicious! Our airport transfers between Dublin and Belfast were very smooth. We had an amazing trip with your help! Thank you!!

I had an amazing experience during my first time abroad! This trip was a great way to explore a small piece of Europe for the very first time. I appreciated how everything was well-organized, and the itinerary allowed for plenty of free time to explore. The entire trip was a seamless experience, from getting picked up at Dublin airport to the return at the end of the trip.

The instructions and directions were clear, and the trip was run on-time and on-schedule. Our bus driver, Matt, was amazing! I really appreciated his commentary on the history of Ireland, and his superb navigational skills as he maneuvered the bus around the winding roads of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Overall, I had an incredible time traveling with Cara Group Travel. I thought the communication throughout the trip planning process was great, and all of my questions were answered. Throughout the duration of the trip, I felt at ease knowing that the major touring and sightseeing aspects of the trip has been pre-planned.

Thank you again for a great experience.

We loved the trip. We thought we were able to see a lot with the tours and have enough free time to explore and relax.

This was the best trip my husband and I ever took. We enjoyed the sights, the people, the culture.

Cara Group did a fabulous job with the coordination of all the events associated with the trip!

The four of us, my husband and our two friends really enjoyed the trip to Ireland. Everything was perfectly organized, our driver and tour guide drove us safely through this wonderful country, telling us about the history and the life in Ireland.

All in all a wonderful trip!

It was a grand tour! Thank you for organizing this for Providence College. From our departure at Logan airport through our return flight home, this was a smooth experience. The hotels selected in each city (The Academy in Dublin and The Europa in Belfast) were great selections.

Gerry was a wonderful coach driver! The tours were fantastic and it was great to have free time in both Dublin and Belfast. Thank you! 

O’Meara, Providence College

The trip was great.

Shoen, Clarkson University

Overall an excellent trip. Very good balance between planned excursions/events and free time. Hotel locations were great. Really liked the Gresham. Another positive was the Belfast city tour. I had been there for the 2012 Navy Notre Dame game. This tour was much more comprehensive than the one at that time.

Overall a great experience. I would be willing to travel with Cara again in the future.

Scollar, RPI

Well done by the Cara Group.
