Dr. Cullin crafted an amazing trip based on my specific needs. My goal to see much of how Christianity grew over the centuries and how the monastic influence directed Christianity in the past can be used contextually today was exactly what I was hoping for....More

Ok, so first the bad... I had booked a July tour in November. When I saw it was a tour led by a PhD focusing on St. Patrick, I jumped at it! I actually planned my entire 3 week vacation in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and...More

Therese will customize an Irish tour for big or small groups. She covers the Republic and Northern Island. Although she focuses on religious sites, she covers other topics as well. Her approach is very personable and casual. She has a doctorate in Irish Church history,...More

We had an amazing day with Therese. Because some of us speak english not that good, she organized a german speaking guide who did a great job as well. Everything was perfect, instead of the wheather ;-). I highly recommend this agency.

Therese is well-organised and very flexible. Given her academic background, she is very knowledgeable and knows all about St. Patrick but yet she is also a spiritual person and very connected. She brought me to a nice private chapel which was not on my itinerary...More
