Destinations for 2019!      

The “Best of the Old, Best of the New” Year!!!   The Cruise will be 7 days, each tour will be 14 days.We will do an All-Scotland and an All-Ireland tour, each in the summer! Italy has won the toss for this year's fall tour, and it is filling fast. Features sights and experiences that have not been on any previous tours,  with favorite aspects of past years! Out of the way, in-depth, unusual, “hidden” aspects of the Celtic world ...including the Caribbean, and Italy!           

We do all the work arranging our tours, from airlines, to bus lines, to hotels, meals, and entertainment (and we publish this website ourselves.) This means you will enjoy a tailor-made tour based on years of experience, personal connections and friendships. And it means leaving the worrying and planning and DRIVING to us!


Our Ireland & other international tours include airfare, transport to and from airport, transport during tour, all overnights, breakfast and dinner every day, and any special admissions to tour sites! Trip insurance included!
