The Tauck Difference

A marvelous trip from beginning to end. Beautiful and varied scenery: rugged coast, serene fields of sheep, mountains in the mist. But overriding everything (great food, great accommodations, great Tauck Director) was the genuine and universal friendliness of the Irish people.
