What’s The Difference Between Vagabond & Driftwood Tours?

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

  • Pace
  • Activities
  • Tour Vehicles

No matter which you choose, you are guaranteed fun, free time, history, culture, 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, we try to squeeze the most out of each day, departing the hotel by 9am and returning at 6pm (or sometimes even later).

In contrast, 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 town with shopping opportunties where your group wants more free time, you may depart later in the morning.

Equally, you may reach a hotel even earlier in the afternoon on a particular day or later to accommodate a particular destination or activity.

2. Vagabond Activities Require Good Fitness

Expect a mix of adventure activities and Irish history on a Vagabond Cultural Adventure.

Hiking. Biking. Sea-Kayaking. Horseback-riding. Rowing. Surfing. Sea swimming.

These are just a few of the activities you may choose on a Vagabond Cultural Adventure Tour.

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

You'll focus on quaint villages, spectacular landscapes, historical castle ruins and other heritage destinations.

IMPORTANT: Even though most activities are optional, Vagabond Cultural Adventures require a good level of fitness to enjoy them to the max.

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.

Our tour vehicle fleet is 100% updated and refreshed each year with the latest Mercedes-Benz models.
