A tour through Britain and Ireland will take your group to sites of royalty, ruins, and leprechauns, and you'll experience beautiful scenery, deep history, and colorful myth.
By tour, a guide can provide information and history about these destinations that will bring them to life for you and take care of the travel details so you can focus on enjoying your vacation. Most tours in the area start with a flight into London, and we recommend that you take advantage by adding enough extra time to your trip to enjoy the attractions that London has to offer, including icons like Big Ben, museums of art and history, and entertainment. On the way to Ireland, get ready for breathtaking stops in places like York, Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, Stonehenge and Bath.
On the Emerald Isle you can experience the Ring of Kerry, the beautiful Lakes of Killarney, and the bustling city of Dublin. Activities in Ireland are likely to include
shopping at the Waterford Crystal Factory, a visit to Ireland's oldest hand weaving mill at Avoca and a drive through the scenic Wicklow Mountains. To get immersed in the spirit of the communities you visit, be sure to spend time at the local pubs in both Ireland and Britain along the way. These are not just great places to get a drink but often serve as the cultural center of the town, and it's a great opportunity to enjoy some colorful local company.
If your group can swing it, be sure to book an extended tour with visits to extend through nearby Scotland and Wales.
