Considered 3 tour companies and chose Tenon Tours for their expertise, responsiveness, professionalism and pricing. We were pleased with all aspects of our private chauffer driven tour of Ireland & Scotland.

Excellent! The staff members with whom we made all the arrangements were very friendly and professional. After reviewing the initial proposed itinerary, I researched a lot of the locations and essentially changed the entire itinerary. Tenon Tours was very accommodating and made all of the changes without any problems. Our trip from the time we landed in Dublin went exactly as planned without a single problem. Well, that’s not quite true. On our first evening as we drove in the rain and on a paved cow path with two way traffic toward our first destination, I had to swerve to miss an oncoming truck and broke the passenger side rear view mirror. But, thanks to the full coverage insurance provided as part of our package, that event turned out to be a minor inconvenience rather than a problem.
Thank you Tenon Tours for a most enjoyable and memorable 40th Anniversary trip.
We had a super visit to Ireland and Tenon Tours made it easy by arranging the hotel in Dublin, airport pickups and delivery, the rental car, GPS, and phone. The vouchers for B&Bs worked very well as did all the vouchers. We planned our own itinerary but Tenon Tours made it all much easier. We recommend them for travel in Ireland. What a great country to visit. We loved it.
Even though we did a lot of the planning ourselves, this was our first time traveling to Europe. Tenon was an invaluable tool for our learning curve. They answered our questions and helped us to decide our itinerary.
The transportation to the hotel and rental car was smooth. It was great to have the GPS. We didn’t use the phone much but it was comforting to know we had it and could call Tenon at any time for help or to make any changes. The accommodations that they assisted us with were comfortable and adequate.
In celebration of our 50th Wedding Anniversary, we wanted to have a special vacation and Tenon Tours let us do just that. The itinerary was perfect in every way.
Gerry and I will definitely use Tenon Tours again for our next UK trip.
I had a wonderful experience with Tenon Tours. I had never been to Ireland before and this tour made it easy. I knew where I was staying and how I was getting to each city. Once I was there, I still had the freedom to explore what I wanted and go where I wanted. The price was reasonable, especially for the peace of mind it brough since I was traveling alone. As a bonus, the other travelers in my tour group were amazing and we may travel together again at some point! I think I have made some friends for life!
Wonderful trip to Ireland. Tenon Tours offers much more than a trip of too many tourists on a bus. It allows the independence to really explore Ireland.
My experience with Tenon Tours was fantastic! Starting with the planning stage they were there to plan, advise and take care of the tour. We did a self-drive tour where all of the hotels were arranged ahead of time. This worked extremely well. I felt that Janet really listened to what we wanted to make it a great experience. When we had a couple of issues, Janet handled them even though she was on a trip. Would definitely work with them again.
This was my first experience in booking a trip online and I had initial reservations. Tenon Tours through Barbara delivered all I could have hoped for: their organization and bookings were flawless. I hope to be able to use them again and will recommend them to all.
Great travel experience! This was our first time using a tour company to travel and I would definitely recommend Janet Dudley and her staff to anyone wanting to use a tour company. They made our planning and travel so much easier and stress free.
Tenon has good tours to offer. Knowledgeable representatives. We had a great time on our 10 day Ireland trip. I would book another trip with Tenon Tours.
Our representative was very prompt and easy to contact in relation to our trip. He recommended locations to stay and things to do and see. The price was almost all inclusive and extremely competitive. We had a few minor snafus (outdated GPS, lost reservation), but overall had a great trip!
Wonderful tour!!!!!!!!! Thanks for all the memories!

Escellent itinerary for 3 countries (England, Scotland, Ireland) with great lodgings, professional and personable drivers and inclusive of all points of interest in non-rushed time frame – most professional.
We were very happy with Tenon Tours. They arranged tours, a rental car, accommodations and more for us. Everything was flawless. We did not have to waste vacation time arguing or sorting out problems
Tenon Tours offered top-notch knowledgeable, friendly, efficient customer service from beginning to end, and I would recommend their flexible, professional service to anyone! Our trip to Ireland was amazing!
I would recommend Tenon Tours to anyone considering travel abroad. The only surprises we had were good surprises, as in “I had no idea the Cliffs of Moher/Aran Islands/Titanic Experience, etc., were so amazing when seen in person!” Not one single complaint!

We wanted to take our time, drive around the island & stay where we wanted, not on a bus tour which stopped at specific spots for only a short period of time. After finding a self-drive castle & B&B tour on-line which allowed us to pre-pay for all B&B’s in advance we were excited. Plus instead of having to book a rental car separately, this tour included the car rental, a GPS, a phone & gift discounts. All of us were very pleased with the attention to details & the service we received. If we decide to return to Ireland, we would definitely re-book with Tenon Tours.
Tenon Tours is simply the BEST. After using Tenon 4 yrs ago for an Ireland trip, we used them again for a golf vacation to Scotland. They handled everything included Tee Times. Would not use anyone else, Great customer service, the best in the business as far as I’m concerned. If you are traveling to either of these destinations Tenon Tours should be your ONLY choice. Would not use anyone else!
My wife and have booked our self drive tour for Oct. I want to thank Janet for the fine job she is doing helping us get our trip in order can’t wait for Oct to get here! Will post more after trip
The best thing about using Tenon Tours for a self-drive tour of Ireland this summer was the great advice and information I received from Taryn Harrison, my assigned represetnative. She was so responsive and helpful and I worked with her for a year without her ever getting tired of my questions. Tenon also set us up in a great hotel for our one night in Dublin. Our only problem was an equipment clitch with the provided cell phone, but it didn’t really affect our trip and certainly didn’t cancel out the great service we received from Tenon Tours. I will use them again!
Tenon Tours put together a personalized itinerary for us since we were mostly interested in doing genealogy research in small towns. We also wanted to experience castles. They arranged everything for us from being met by a charming and well-informed driver at the airport to tickets for special events. Our 10-day journey included all breakfasts in wonderful, centrally located hotels, an SUV and a Garmin for the parts where we drove ourselves, a cell phone and many tips for traveling thru Ireland. We were well prepared and equipped by Tenon tours. Five smiles and 5 stars
Tenon Tours made our Ireland and Scotland a wonderful experience. We picked the cities and tours and they did the rest. They made the planning a breeze. Their advice was on the towns to visit and tours was great. We couldn’t have done this without Tenon. I will definitely use Tenon on my next trip.
Tenon Tours planned the best vacation to Ireland. My friends and I had so much fun thanks to them!! I don’t know what we would have done without them. Thanks again!!!
Had a wonderful trip to Ireland. Tenon Tours and Stephanie really helped make it all possible. She really worked with me to hammer out an itinerary so I didn’t miss anything I wanted to see. We came, we saw and we conquered! Met the friendlies people after thinking it was a “tourist board hype” that everyone was so nice and helpful. We went looking for my wife’s families ancestral estates. We were on tiny back roads, but people would get out of their cars and talk for 20 minutes and tell us everything they knew. We found 4 out of the 5 estates we were looking for!
Tenon provided a helpful, consolidated travel package for us to get our lodging, rental car and various other logistics taken care of. They were very helpful, responsive and flexible with having to revise plans to meet our schedule. They are a very well run organization.
Awesome to work with. Love the people at Tenon Tours have actual been to Ireland several times and have stayed at the B&B’s and hotels so they really know what they are talking about.
They really listened to what we wanted to do and the things we wanted to see. They didn’t just point us to a standard list. What they came up with in guiding us as we picked our own path helped make this a perfect vacation.
Received prompt and efficient service-appreciated professionalism of the travel consultants-everything promised was delivered with a smile! I would Highly recommend Tenon Tours .
