Guided Fantasy through The Emerald Isle!

Glen made our trip amazing. We want to book again through your company for another round with him as our guide! We saw things we could have never found on our own. Amazing!
Product : Glen made our trip amazing. We want to book again just for him! Amazing trip, highlighting details we would have missed on our own!
Shannon, 30th Nov 2022
Excellent, exceptional.
View on FeeFo
Our guide, Glenn was fabulous. He looked out for us every way he could. Kept us on time, participated with us, was very, very knowledgeable, entertaining and fun! If I were to suggest anything it would be to arrive at the hotel destinations a little earlier so that the surroundings could be explored. Perfect example was our last night at Gougane Barra. Absolutely beautiful area but not enough time to traverse the area.
Will do another tour with Vagabond!
Product : Very well organized. Hotels were mostly great, a couple needed some work. Loved the pubs, as they were all ready for us and the destinations.
Ed, 30th Nov 2022
The tour displayed the basic everyday life of the Irish people
View on FeeFo
Excellent tour guides. They could relate stories, information, and Irish traditions of all the locations we visited. They were exceptionally good drivers and flexible to weather conditions and the varied abilities of the passengers.
Product : Vagabond tour as previously explained.

Vagabond 7 Day World Tour of Ireland
"KUDOS TO VAGABOND!"

A couple on a 7 day tour of Ireland at Cliffs of Moher

This was our first multiple day tour so when we starting searching we knew we didn’t want to be on a huge bus with lots of people. We couldn’t have made a better choice then Vagabond.

Both our guides Brian and Mark were just wonderful! They were personable, had great sense of humor, they were very informative and their singing was top notch!!

We loved the fact that we were able to go places that larger groups couldn’t we met so many amazing local people and stayed at some great places — even a castle!

We had a great group of just 15 people so we were able to get to know each other which was wonderful.

Vagabond 7 Day World Tour of Ireland
"YOU WON'T REGRET IT"

Two tour guests with a Vagabond guide on a 7 day tour of Ireland

My mother and I had the dream trip to Ireland and got home just about a week ago.

Vagabond was fantastic to work with. Many tour options from active to more laid back. We chose the more active option.

Alan was a great tour guide on our off the beaten track adventure. There was a mix of lovely accommodations, most of them right on the water. We visited some lively towns and some that were tucked away.

Ireland is magical and I would highly recommend Vagabond Tours for your visit. You will not regret it.
