I seriously wouldn't do it any other way. We wouldn't have been able to see or do as much as we had without your group and our amazing guide, Andrew.
Even though my husband and I aren't particularly outgoing people, we did make some friends along the way...
The sights were incredible and the entire experience was simply unforgettable...
If anyone I know is looking to go to Ireland, I would emphatically recommend your company.
GINGER, APRIL 2022
I have been raving about Vagabond tours since I returned home from Ireland about a month ago...
Even though you go from place to place daily, it was so easy because everything was planned, booked and you just sat back and took in all of the beauty of Ireland.
You couldn’t plan a trip like this on your own and get the same fantastic results... The hotel accommodations were awesome...
There is sooooo much more I could say but I would go on and on…. This was truly the most amazing trip!!
VERIFIED GUEST, JUNE 2022
Everything was brilliant. From navigating the user-friendly website and reading about the different tours, to the ease in booking online and receiving email updates/communication up to the morning of tour departure, everything was effortless.
Our tour guide, Bebhinn, was truly exceptional. She looked after everyone in the group, always checking and making sure all was good and that everything was going well throughout.
She made sure we had memorable experiences, taking us to amazing places and on great adventures while sharing with us her knowledge of Irish mythology, music, culture, and history.
