This year I had the pleasure of taking my 4th Vagabond tour. The first was in 2003 and since that time I have been hooked. I have friends that ask why I keep taking the same tour repeatedly and my reply is always the same: It’s not the same tour over and over again. I mention going to Ireland again... More

After web searching for a small group tour of Ireland I stumbled across Driftwood Tours. Without any first hand knowledge of the company (apart from all the positive on line reviews!), I booked the 11-day tour leaving mid-October, and was the best tour decision made.
