The Tauck Difference

A marvelous trip from beginning to end. Beautiful and varied scenery: rugged coast, serene fields of sheep, mountains in the mist. The weather was not a problem: a bit of rain, a bit of sun, mostly overcast around 60º. But overriding everything (food, accommodations, great Tauck Director) was the genuine and universal friendliness of the people. I think gaining a deeper understanding of the (often tragic) history of Ireland, both ancient and modern, is what will stay with me longest.
