Outstanding Experience
We just returned from the 8 Day Vagabond Wild Irish Rover Tour with Kim. We had an amazing experience and visited sites that were unique and not normal tourist spots. The hikes and views were incredible.

Incredible tour!
I am not sure I can put into words how amazing this trip was. My wife and I travel extensively and it was the best trip we had ever taken. We hiked, cycled, travelled by boat to the Skellig Islands, and absorbed all we could of the Irish culture. The accommodations, food, and each day's activities were all top-notch.

Unforgettable Ireland Experience!
My husband and I just returned yesterday and are still processing this trip of a lifetime. It was a great mix of physical activity (hike, row, cycle, etc.) and sight-seeing. There were opportunities to do things as a group as well as times to explore on your own. Photos do not do this place justice...each view is truly more beautiful than the last.
