Classic Ireland Tour FAQs

1. Will I meet like minded travelers on my classic tour?

Yes, you will meet like-minded people that love the outdoors, exploring off-the-beaten-track locations, sharing memories and getting to know all the cool facts about a destination. You generally end up being friends for life. 

2. How many people are on your classic tours?

We believe in small group travel and therefore you travel with a maximum of 16 like-minded people and an expert driver guide.
