David McGuffin's Exploring Europe Logo

Ireland is the land of forty shades of green, all the sheep you’ll ever want to count and a warm welcome on every doorstep! It is a mystical place, full of fairy forts, stone circles, ancient passage tombs, and superstitions that run deep.  During the “Dark Ages” it was the home of saints and scholars who carried on teaching and learning while the rest of Europe struggled just to survive. Furthermore, Celtic heritage is proudly displayed in traditional music, the Irish language, and Gaelic sports. Our Ireland tours are the  perfect match of sightseeing and cultural experiences offering a worry-free taste of the history, culture, music, and cuisine of Ireland.

All David’s tours are designed for strictly small groups ranging from 6 to 24 travelers. This means that we can travel off the beaten path and under the big bus tour radar and experience Europe on a unique and personal level. Eating well is also a priority, and you’ll get your fair share of fine food sourced locally by excellent chefs. I’ve spent years poking around Europe’s nooks and crannies looking for unique restaurants, clean hotels with character and cozy B&Bs. Our tours include all tips and gratuities to drivers, local guides, and your tour leader. Finally, we’ll never nickel and dime you with extras and add-ons. The advertised price is the price you pay. 

David plans, designs and leads tours to many  European destinations.  Please contact us if you do not find a specific tour, destination or departure date here that meets your needs.  We frequently add new destinations and departure dates and your input would be greatly appreciated.
