My husband and I booked the 11 Day Ireland Driftwood tour that covered the entire Island in a leisurely laid back style during May 2022. We highly recommend this tour and company for many reasons.
First, the tour itself covered many differing areas, from city to town to country and back again. Ireland's beauty and unique/rich history was on open display and we found all activities of equal merit. Our hotels also showed varied styles and reflected each area just as did the cuisine. We booked a few extra days in Dublin because it is not on the itinerary and highly suggest doing so to take in many interesting sites.
Secondly, traveling with Covid threats may seem ridiculous but Vagabond sterilized the van each morning, masks were available as well as hand sanitizer. We were asked to keep masks on at all times within the van, sanitize during each re-entry and windows were open to provide circulation. We weren't surprised when our required Covid tests were negative for a return to the USA.
Lastly, our tour leader Tim Orr, has a wonderful sense of humor, an in-depth knowledge of Ireland and is an excellent driver. He catered to all 13 passengers needs in what seemed to be an effortless manner belying the hard work behind the scenes. He's a joyful master of many delightful stories and I can honestly say he deserves to be called a legend. I know from other friends who booked with Vagabond that all of the staff is as personable and professional as Tim.
