David plans, designs, and leads European tours for PRIVATE AND SPECIALTY groups of any size.

Our mission is to encourage Americans to broaden their cultural mindset through engaging and exciting travel experiences in Europe. Our tours are for small groups of up to 18 passengers and include daily activities and sightseeing, yet allow time to experience the locale on your own. No need to worry about tips and gratuities; we’ll take care of those.

Hotels are clean and safe, have private baths, and are central. Eating well is a priority, so we include all breakfasts and half of your dinners. Our tour leaders and local guides are experts who share our destinations’ art, history, culture, and experiences. Our booking conditions are generous and flexible, with opportunities to change or cancel if needed.

Finally, we strive to provide a stress-free, informative, and exciting travel experience. Overall, aiming to empower our guests with knowledge, guidance, and confidence to embrace the adventure, seize the moment, and, most of all, have fun!

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will take on the Florida State Seminoles in Dublin on August 24, 2024.

David McGuffin’s Exploring Europe has offered tours to Ireland, Scotland, and Wales for decades.  So, when we learned this match-up was in Dublin, we were all in!

David has meticulously arranged his highly regarded tour routes in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales to seamlessly fold into the GAME DAY EXPERIENCE.  Our tours take you off the standard big-bus tourist routes and immerse you in the charm of small towns, cozy restaurants, lively pubs, and local folks enjoying life to the fullest.

These custom AMERICAN COLLEGE FOOTBALL tours vary according to the destinations, duration, and cost.  They all come with an all-inclusive price, with no surprise add-ons or options.  Tips and gratuities are included too!  We think you’ll find these tour experiences far surpass any other offer you’ll find.

Game Day Tickets are not included in our packages.  They are available for purchase at the usual online ticket outlets and through the educational institutions themselves.

This tour package is offered solely by David McGuffin’s Exploring Europe.   It is in no way affiliated with the Dublin and Ireland event organizers, Florida State University, Georgia Institute of Technology,  or any other entity in the world.
