Only half way through the 8 day Wild River tour and having an excellent time. Kim, our driver, guide, and host is wonderful and smart and has surprised us with some amazing adventures. There is a lot going on so be prepared. Know you will see some really cool sites

Our family of 5 did the Driftwood 7 day Treasure Ireland Tour and Rhys was our driver. Rhys and the Vagabond Tour exceeded our expectations! The 15 of us on the bus hit it off the moment we stepped onto the bus. Rhys kept us entertained by telling us Ireland history, his personal stories, and took us to places that were not "touristy". The out of the way places we saw were extraordinary in picturesque value and residents. All the towns, hotels, meals, and Irish family were wonderful. We are so excited that we had such a wonderful time and memories of Ireland. Thank you to Rhys, Vagabond Tours, Irish family and our bus companions for a fantastic trip!

My mum and I were on the Driftwood tour and it was amazing! It was the perfect way to see Ireland. Our guide, Mark was amazingly knowledgeable and took us to places off the beaten path. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see All of this phenomenal country. I would love to do this again!

This is our second tour with the company, having done a Driftwood tour 3 years ago. This time we wanted to do something slightly more adventurous and booked the Magnetic North Vagabond tour. About two months out, we were notified that, due to a cancellation, we would be the only travelers on the tour. Ciara in the office offered us the opportunity to customize our tour and even arranged pick up at our hotel. Our guide, Andrew, went over and above to accommodate our photography requests and the schedule quickly became more of a guideline. As long as we ended up at our hotel each night, we were free to linger at sites and hike at our own pace. Andrew challenged us on activities but was encouraging. We did some hikes that we never would have attempted on our own (Slieve Guillion, Horn Head, Croagh Patrick) with Andrew’s guidance. The Magnetic North tour is pretty off the beaten path but that was the slice of Irish culture we were looking for. We especially appreciated the tours of Belfast and Derry and the understanding of The Troubles that we gained. Our experience was unique due to being, essentially, a custom tour. Nonetheless, Vagabond exceeded our expectations and we are already thinking about our next trip. BTW, Guinness is better in Ireland!

Hello LTCDon, we never cancel a tour here at Vagabond! Thank you for your 5* review and we are very happy you enjoyed your small group tour of Ireland. Guinness is always best enjoyed - in Ireland!

What a great tour! We saw so much of the country with great stories and great company. Our tour guide (Edel) was excellent. Told us entertaining stories along the way. Tour was very flexible and Edel made stops along the way if something interested us. Hotels and food were also great. This is the only way to travel. Believe me’ you do not want to drive and the big tour bus is so impersonal

Hello Robery H, thank you for your 5* review of our small group tour of Ireland with Driftwood, our more relaxed pace of tour. It really is the only way to go, small groups, family run hotels, off the beaten track, what more could you want! Rob Rankin, Owner.
