We recently went on a 11 day tour with driftwood tours and can honestly say without a doubt, it was the best tour that my wife and I have ever been on. Our guide, Mark Doherty was the secret ingredient to put it over the top. What a jewel Vagabond tours have for a guide. With his knowledge, insight and character we never had a dull moment not to mention the beauty of the tour itself. Combining all of this with the excellent accomodations and meals and the timing Mark set up our itinerary for viewing key highlights so that we could get the most out of it, congratulation Vagabond tours. You are Number One in our books.
PS. Keep the songs rolling, Mark

Hello Mark and Linda, thank you so much for this review, we are really happy you enjoyed your small group tour of Ireland. Mark has been a guide with us from almost the beginning - what he does'nt know about Ireland could be written on a post it! He loves the odd tune or two and we will be sure to tell him to keep the songs rolling. Maybe see you again on another tour, Kind regards, Helen Cole, Marketing Manager

Just came back from the 7 Day Tour of Southern Ireland and had the best time. From the minute we left the hotel we set of on adventure, we balanced history with adventure. Our guide Mia was so great at telling the history of Ireland. The small group size made it possible to do things that bigger groups can't do. I loved all the hotels and towns we stopped in. Ireland is breathtaking, even in the rain. I can't wait to come back and do Northern Ireland with Vagabond. It is definitely a must see place.

Hello Melissa - thank you for reviewing our 7 Day Tour - sounds like you had a super adventure in Ireland. Mia has been a Vagabond Tour guide for quite awhile, she knows Ireland so well. We like small groups here at Vagabond Tours, we can get you to some out of the way hidden gems! We look forward to welcoming you back soon on our 6 Day Northern Ireland Driftwood Tour.

Wow, wow, wow!! Our family just got back from 8 day Vagabond Wild Irish Rover tour.
What a great way to travel, everything was great. Tour guide Kim was excellent and made us fall in love Ireland. She was very knowledgable and funny and kept us busy and entertained.

People back home keep asking me about my favorite part and I'll have to say THE WHOLE THING!!! ☘

Wanted to tour Ireland with a small group that could take us to the major historical sites as well as lots of country side and small villages. This tour did that and more. Every "to do item on my list" was checked off and so much more. Our driver, Denise, was professional, personable, fun, easy to understand and provided us with lots of history and folkfore as well as answering all of our curious questions about Ireland. Easy and quick in and out of the bus. At some points we were given options on excursions and Denise adjusted our route accordingly. She took us places we would never have known about or found to visit. Denise provided lots of recommendations for food, shopping, and things to see. We stayed in charming hotels (with lots of history) in small towns, as well as 3 castles that were simply beautiful. In addition, the customer service from the office was excellent. I can't say enough about this tour. This was the trip of a life time and Vagabond made it exceptional!!!

I recently was on an 11 Day Driftwood tour with Mark Doherty. What a wonderful experience. Mark is knowledgeable, funny and very caring of his passengers. The accommodations were all encompassing including a castle, country house and hotel over pub in city atmosphere. Mark's stories, songs and poems kept us well entertained. We experienced the must see places as well as the off the beaten path. The food was incredible. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.

Hello Catcook - thank you for your review and we are very happy to hear you would recommend us. Our guides are incredible, each with their own unique style, Mark does like to sing and recite poetry. On our tours we tick the iconic sites off the bucket list and show you some hidden gems, off the beaten track. Helen, Marketing Manager
