What’s The Difference Between Vagabond & Driftwood Tours?

Discover the 3 main differences between active Vagabond Cultural Adventures and gently-paced Driftwood Journeys of Discovery:

  • Pace;
  • Activities;
  • Tour Vehicles.

Both tour types offer fun, history and culture, free time, outstanding tour guides, spectacular scenery and excellent overnight stays. It's really a matter of how fit and adventurous you feel.

1. Vagabond Cultural Adventures Are Faster-Paced

On an active Vagabond Cultural Adventure, you'll be moving between fun towns, historic sights.

We try to squeeze the most out of each day on a Vagabond Tour, departing the hotel by 9am and returning at 6pm or even later.

Driftwood Journeys of Discovery have a more relaxed pace. You'll spend quality time strolling quaint villages, browsing craft shops and visiting elegant period homes.

Your Driftwood tour will typically leave your hotel at been 9 and 10am each morning, returning between 5 and 6pm. These timings may vary in certain places. For example in a destination where your group wants more free time. Equally there may be the desire to reach a hotel earlier or later to accommodate a particular destination or activity.

2. Vagabond Cultural Adventures Are More Active

Biking. Sea-Kayaking. Horseback-riding.

These are just a few of the optional activities you can choose to indulge in on a Vagabond Cultural Adventure Tour.

Explore Ireland's coast by sea kayak. Horse-ride along a beach. Or take a guided cycling tour of Killarney National Park.

In contrast, the activities on a Driftwood Journeys of Discovery are less adrenaline-fueled.

3. The Tour Vehicles Are Different

Vagabond Cultural Adventure Tours travel in VagaTron 4x4 tour vehicles.

Driftwood Journeys of Discovery use slick and comfortable mini-coaches.
