Bespoke and Customized Tours

Booking a customised tour should be an easy experience and I try to make it so.

To begin your journey send me an email detailing the following…

  • Some information on the group, is it family, a group of friends or work colleagues etc
  • When are you due to arrive and how long are you staying in the area (I can alert you to any special events like festivals that are only advertised locally)
  • What sort of things are you interested in seeing? Castles, lush countryside, traditional thatched cottages, military forts, the film sets from Braveheart or Saving Private Ryan? There is so much to see! Check out the other pages on this site for inspiration!
  • Finally let me know of any dietary restrictions, allergies and if you would rather an alcohol-free alternative to the complimentary whiskey?

I will draw up an itinerary and send it to you, together we make a few tweaks and thats it!

Typically my clients prefer to make the tour all inclusive of entry fees and lunch but should you prefer, I can leave that to you and just charge you the driver guide fee.

I will send you on an itemised invoice, you can either pay a 50% deposit and the remainder in cash on the day of your tour or the full amount whichever you prefer.

Payments can made via Paypal, bank transfer or through Stripe

Our party of 6 seasoned international travellers from Atlanta, Georgia (3 active senior couples) spent a most delightful day with Lorraine as she shared the southeast area around Wexford with us. Her clean and spacious car was perfect, her driving safe and assured, and her knowledge of the region was outstanding. We liked the fact that we could be flexible in our choices of what to see and do, including skipping some of the usual tourist sites and opting for the more obscure, but more intriguing spots, such as an old windmill, a fine pub with excellent seafood, and other off the path places. Lorraine was good company and was sensitive and responsive to our various energy levels and tastes. She provided clear and accurate cost estimates before our arrival and adjusted them based on what we actually decided to do. We all felt we received more than full value for the terrific experience she orchestrated, including the late-night Irish moonshine toast after we crept in very late to our lodgings. If you’re looking for a top-flight, flexible tour guide with enormous knowledge and a pleasant personality, you couldn’t do better than Lorraine and a Gallivanting Tour.

We had a fantastic day. French Canadian family of six, children aged from 8 to 16. Everything was better than we could have asked for. Lorraine knows so much about the history and always has a great story to tell. When I first contacted her, I told her about our interests and she organized a wonderful day just for us. It’s like having a great friend from Ireland showing you around with a very professional attitude. I would recommend to anyone because she can give you the private tour according to your taste and interest. Well worth the money, don’t hesitate!
