“We have been taking groups to Ireland for over 20 years and the main reason we have repeat customers is because they know Dave Yeates is going to greet them upon their arrival. Dave’s goal on each tour is to make sure that everyone has the most enjoyable time possible and that each person leaves Ireland already wanting to come back.  His attention to detail both on tour and behind the scenes is exemplary. He brings humor and laughter to every tour in addition to his incredible knowledge. One of his unique attributes is his ability to take a group of strangers and in a short time turn them into one big happy family. Dave is definitely one of the reasons our tours have been so successful and will continue to be.”
“Dave’s expertise and knowledge of Ireland is like being on a traveling Irish history class. He makes each person on tour feels special and develops a bond that lasts beyond the tour. That bond becomes part of the experience and friendship that Dave cultivates and can last forever. Dave always ensures that each member of his group is treated in a way that makes each person feel special by his wit and humor and attention that only Dave can bring to the group. He also ensured that things were in place for the day I proposed to my future wife, he was so instrumental in making that day very memorable. A day without Dave as your tour guide/driver is just another day. Experience the tour, experience it with Dave!”
Ric Hewitt, Tour Attendee
“Dave took a group of 20 plus strangers and made each one of us feel special and at ease.  His love and knowledge of Ireland, his sense of humor, and his genuine concern for each member of the tour group was instantly apparent. And…I believe the man could drive the motor coach through the eye of a needle.”
Michael Mulcahy, Repeat Tour Attendee
“Dave made my trip to Ireland the best trip I’ve taken. His knowledge, humor, caring and concern; the vistas and little extras, and the wonderful stories and music were woven like a tapestry in the memories of my mind! He is a man who [has] found his niche and excelled beyond excellent! It was so wonderful and even now, years later, I remember so clearly the fun and wonder of my trip to his enchanted Isle!”
Winnie Kerwin, Tour Attendee
“I was blessed enough to join the 2013 Dave Yeates Ireland Tours’ maiden 5-day tour of Ireland with 3 generations of my family. The trip was destined to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience our heritage together as a family…and Dave Yeates EXCEEDED all expectations! Each stop on the tour (mostly planned, sometimes not!) was more beautiful and memorable then the last. I felt at home and at peace each and every moment of the trip. While Ireland’s beautiful landscape speaks for itself, Dave brings the energy and life. Dave’s knowledge and stories show his passion and dedication to his country, profession and fellow Irish. A true Irish gentleman, I trust no other with my future Ireland tours. Dave Yeates IS IRELAND.”
Jennifer Harsh, Tour Attendee
“I have been on many tours, but this is the only one that exceeded my expectations.  I have to give Dave Yeates, our driver/tour director, major credit for it being such a success.  Dave is a talking history book on Ireland and its people.  How he can maneuver the bus on some of the roads and parking is beyond me.  His humor kept us laughing throughout the tour.  The bottom line is he is a true professional who knows the tour business, treats everyone with dignity and respect, and has fun in the process.”
