No Ordinary Tour Vehicle…

...For an extraordinary small-group tour of Ireland.

Carrying a maximum of 13 guests, these rugged Mercedes-Benz 4×4 tour vehicles are equally at home travelling over mountain pass or rocky shoreline.

100% Mercedes-Benz Fleet

Our VagaTron tour vehicles have plenty of space inside. Seats are soft and comfy for cruising between stops.

You'll love the large windows to take in all the stunning Irish scenery.

Our 4x4 tour vehicles are totally unique and only used for Vagabond Cultural Adventures.

Expect jealous looks!

Travel Ireland in Style

Smooth, slick and very comfortable, our Mercedes-Benz Drifters are a great way to discover Ireland.

There’s a strict maximum of 15 people allowed on your Driftwood tour, so there’ll always be plenty of space. Our Drifters all feature large windows so you can make the most of the stunning views.

100% Mercedes-Benz Fleet

Civilised on the motorway, our Drifters are still compact enough to go off the beaten track.

Unearth a side of Ireland you would not experience on an ordinary bus tour. Their smart ‘Brooklands Green’ livery mean you’ll be travelling in style too!

In 2020, we will be operating an all-Mercedes fleet of 9 Drifters.
