I can't say enough about this trip with Vagabond and our guide, Mia! We had a group of 8 ranging in age from 10 to 78 and everyone had fun -- a terrific feat! I usually shy away from guided tours but with the size of our group we decided it was necessary. We loved the flexibility of the itinerary and the ability to mix more active activites into our schedule. The highlights of our trip included things we wouldn't have come across on our own: kayaking with a dolphin escort, Murphy's ice cream, walking with the hawks, hiking along the edge of the Cliffs of Moher. As we explored small towns and by-ways, Mia always had expert recommendations and background knowledge that made it more enjoyable. We came away loving Ireland as much as she does.
