What travelers are saying

"Our tour of Egypt was incredible. Our Concierge Amira Hosny made the tour extra special and extremely informative. Her knowledge of Ancient Egypt is incredible and her bright personality made the trip extra special. She is by far the best tour guide we have had on our various tours over 25 years. The crew of the riverboat were excellent, from the Hotel Manager to Chef to Housekeeping. Cruising the Nile is a great way to experience Egypt."

What travelers are saying

"We just went on Iconic Ireland and Ashford Castle and had a wonderful time. This was our first bus tour and we didn't know quite what to expect, however, we couldn't have had a more perfect time. Ireland is a beautiful country and we were stunned and thrilled with all the beauty we were able to see. The hotels were great - some definitely better than others but all were comfortable. My only complaint was that our last hotel had no ac and Ireland was experiencing a heat wave so the fan didn't help very much. That wasn't anyone's fault and I just went with the flow. Barbara (our guide) and Marina (our driver) were great and genuinely seemed to be concerned with everyone's comfort. The grande finale of Ashford Castle was incredible. Such a beautiful place and to be able to stay a night there was incredible. I ended up doing the Hawk Walk and horseback riding and I would recommend both - especially the hawk walk to anyone - I think people who are good riders would probably get to do more than we did but it was still great. I would recommend Brendan and this trip to anyone. Perfect amount of down time and activity. Loved it!"

Custom Tour Selection Trips

  • Expect to pay somewhat more for a customized tour than a regularly scheduled guided tour
  • While you make the ultimate decisions on where and when to travel, part of what you’re paying for is your tour agency’s expertise, so take advantage of their advice   
  • Customized tours can be guided or unguided – you make the call on how much assistance you want
  • Many tour agencies that primarily offer guided group tours will now customize a tour for you as well 
  • Custom tours can be ideal for families, honeymooners, or small groups of friends who want to travel together 
  • Work out a maximum budget in advance before planning your custom tour, because it can be hard to resist over-reaching when presented with all the options
  • If you're concerned about Coronavirus, a custom trip is a great option to get you out traveling again. Travel expert planners are eager to work and rates are lower for hotels and experiences
