“We toured the Wild Atlantic Way with Hilltop Treks in June of 2019 and had one of the most memorable experiences of our lifetime. The itinerary to the beautiful countryside gave us a real sense of our Irish heritage. The hikes, cycling and boat rides to well chosen sites as well as the pub visits provided a real Irish experience. Our guide, Hugh, was amazing. He couldn’t have been more knowledgeable, attentive and personable.”
