The tour was perfect. Mark Doherty was not only knowledgeable and interesting but was as entertaining as a show business headliner while also being a fantastic guide.The beauty of Ireland and its people are highlighted in every aspect of this tour. Couldn't recommend it more highly

Just returned from the Vagabond 12 day tour. There were nine of us in our more than comfortable vehicle that took us to many spots that no large tour bus could possibly get to. For example, I can think of no other tour bus that would travel off the beaten path to the middle of Paddy O'Leary's field to view an ancient standing stone. Nick was our guide and he was absolutely an awesome book of Irish book of knowledge. His cheerful demeanor and positive attitude helped us to develop an appreciation for the history, culture, music, geography and all things Irish. We had choices of what to do most days and the pace of the tour seemed to be adjusted to fit the needs of our close knit group. There was very little down time, we were always on the go and very active, which is what everybody wanted. I strongly recommend this tour. If you are an active individual that wants to stay busy, learn a lot and just have a great time, you will want to sign up for the Vagabond Tour.

The company understands the needs of travelers. They provide an excellent tour of Ireland. Just excellent. They constantly monitor the quality of lodging and the delivery of the optional activities, to make sure that they meet or exceed expectation. As an added bonus, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Ireland and was so kind to all in our motley group.

My aunt and I toured SW Ireland with Driftwood July 11-17., "7 Day Driftwood Treasure Island Tour". There were 13 of us in our tour group. It was the perfect sized group, in a comfortable Mercedes 16 person van. Our tour guide Triona is an exceptional guide, and a wonderful person. Her passion for her Irish heritage was infectious and intriguing. She provided very interesting details about the areas we drove through and the places we visited. She gave us a real feel for Ireland and the Irish culture with music and stories of famous and influential Irish citizens. As a group, we shared many fun and memorable moments, and much laughter throughout our time together. We truly grew to care about each other by the end of the trip, and were sad to say our Good-byes. We also enjoyed an fun day with Connor as our guide. He is an accomplished musician and played the button accordion for us, which was a great treat. Touring with Driftwood was a wonderful way to experience Ireland. Thank you very much for an amazing experience.

This was the most fun tour. I just returned from the 8 day Irish Rover Tour with Sean. It was quite simply one of the best times I've ever had. I had no idea what to expect but wanted to visit Ireland and really see the country, and not on a 40-passenger coach bus visiting the Waterford Crystal Factory and other famous touristy spots. It was anything but that! 8 new friends were made and experiences had that I never thought I would be able to do. I climbed 618 steps to Skellig Michael, rode a horse on a beautiful beach, hiked countryside scenery every day like no other, biked in Kilarney National Park, watched a sheep farmer train his fabulous border collies, and stayed a night in a Downton Abbey Manor House. It was just fabulous and I highly recommend it for all! Please ask for Sean too!
