    This is a great tour if you really want to see Ireland. We saw so many places that I feel like I got a comprehensive view of the country. It is fast-paced since you stay only one night at each hotel except in Dingle so as long as you are okay with that, you should enjoy the tour.

    Loved everything about it. And the good weather was a blessing. Emmet, you were the best guide ever. Thank you for all the interesting chats on history and archaeology, etc. and the accompanying blarney. You are a treasure!

    AWESOME! My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary on the 12 day Giant Irish Adventure and loved every minute. First of all, Ireland is SPECTACULAR. The views of the fields, coastline, mountains, ruins, towns and small villages were so much better than I had hoped. The Irish people are extremely pleasant and want to hear about you and what you think of their land even though they've probably heard it from hundreds of other tourists. You have to be disciplined not to take pictures of every field, mountain, inch of coastline, house and storefront and person you see. Secondly, choosing Vagabond was our second best decision next to choosing Ireland as our first European vacation. Booking was simple and easy and a good value compared to other trips we looked into. Any follow-up questions were answered promptly and courteously. Vagabond is a small company focused on small groups so that means it has to have great personal service, and it does. If you are thinking about renting a car driving yourself, think again. The driver sits on the right side and drives on the left side of the road which is tricky especially at intersections and roundabouts plus you would miss so much scenery along the way. Our Vagabond group was made up of just nine folks including ourselves. They included a young Canadian couple on their honeymoon, a young man from Germany a couple in their fifties from California who had traveled extensively, a middle aged woman from Maine traveling alone taking her fist vacation since retiring, and a young girl from Australia. If you did the math from my statement that my wife and were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary, yes, we are in our early sixties. So, you can see the group came in all sizes, ages and from different counties, but all spoke English. Larry, our guide and driver added SO much to the trip. Besides knowing how to get around the whole country including a lot of back roads, some of which could barely be called roads he was a walking, and hiking, encyclopedia of Irish history and culture. His knowledge of Irish history including the present time was just amazing. He paced the trip well so that we were in the vehicle (check out the retrofitted Land Rover on the website) no more than 90 minutes at a time. Besides his educational information Larry sprinkled in music, some timed for the location, like the Talking Heads song "Road to Nowhere" as well as more traditional Irish music, most of which tell sad stories. Larry also answered questions, pointed out interesting types of landscape, types of sheep (there are a LOT of sheep in Ireland), buildings both old and new as well as a few corny jokes. He even sang a few songs. Larry knew all the places to pull off for photo ops as well as took us to out of the way places for some great hikes and yes he was with us every step of the way. A special shout-out also for Larry helping me find and taking us to a VERY out-of-the-way location to recreate a picture of my father taken by his brother on a trip 32 years ago --- no that is personal service that I am extremely grateful for! To summarize, if you are considering an active vacation through an amazing county give Vagabond a call. But be prepared. Be prepared to Look, Listen, Learn and Laugh as well as do some good hiking (not too strenuous but some hills). Also be prepared to get wet. It rains in Ireland a LOT but it won't stop you from enjoying a great vacation.
