Europe Travel Ideas (2)
I had the opportunity to visit Ireland this past week via Brendan Tours and it was grand. This was my first escorted deluxe tour and I really enjoyed myself. No stress, great service, deluxe accommodations plus unique local experiences that Brendan Vacations offers. Every guide was educational & entertaining. I couldn't have been more comfortable in the new Volvo coach. I saw much of southern Ireland while being wined & dined. If you want to immerse yourself in a destination, having a tour director is truly an asset. Learning about Ireland without having your face in a tour book is refreshing.
One highlight of this trip was hiking the cliffs of Mohr & then driving to Dromoland Castle for the last night. (I would suggest 2 NTS here) I did the Falconry experience on the grounds of Dromoland Castle, with the leather glove & the falcon perched or flying. This hunting technique of kings may go back 15,000 years.
The Emerald Isle lives up to its name; rolling green hills, ruined castles, stone terraces, quaint towns & a very lively Dublin.
Ireland can be seen by car i.e. self- drive or chauffeured, rail and or escorted tours. You can reside in B & B's, Hotels, Manor Houses & Castles. Whatever your style, I will match the itinerary & style to your Irish dream.
Why travel to Italy in 2016? The dollar is strong & Italy is just too beautiful & amazing to pass up.
Most travelers to Italy visit the big three i.e. Rome, Florence & Venice. While these cities are a must on everyone’s Italy itinerary smaller cities like Assisi & Orvieto, both can be considered day trips from Rome, are unforgettable. If clients have time I suggest 1 or 2 NTS in Assisi & an afternoon in Orvieto on way to Rome. Clients who have chosen this route have loved it.
Now let’s hop the train or take an escorted tour & head south to Naples & the Amalfi coast –Sorrento, Capri, Pompeii & Postiano. The best time to visit is from April – October. Many hotels are closed doing the winter months. Check out this a video I found that really does the Amalfi coast justice:
