Frequently Asked Questions
What vehicle do you use?
All our tours are conducted in a Volkwagon Caravelle 8 passenger van, larger tours are accommodated by using a local coach company I have partnered with
How much are the tours?
The set tours are priced to include all motoring expenses including insurance, tax and fuel. Also included is my fee as your private driver and guide. This is fee is set by the ATGI and Failte Ireland, the Irish tourist board. If you wish to make it all inclusive with lunch and entrance fees, I budget €25 per person for meals and the entrance fees vary from place to place.
Do I get to visit all the sites listed on each tour?
Unfortunately, due to our very pretty but rather impractical road system (!) and depending on your location, it can be difficult to fit more than four sites into a days touring. However, if you are willing to forgo lunch and keep each visit brief, we can fit more in!
Will there be other travellers with us?
Not unless you bring them, I am your driver and guide
Do your tours run all year?
I run all year round, winter and summer. During the winter months, some sites do close and some you can’t always access due to bad weather. But should there is still plenty to see and do, far less crowds and you get to take your whiskey by the fire!
Can you take larger groups ?
I can cater for groups up to 55 people, including organising accommodation, please contact me for information
Can you cater for disabled tours?
Currently my vehicle is not set up for wheelchair use, however, Gallivanting is a new business and as we grow, the next large purchase will be a Wheelchair Accessible bus. If you are comfortable with assistance from me or members of your group instead, I am happy to accommodate you on any of my tours.
What age group are your tours designed for?
My tours are designed for families and friends and are suitable for all ages. However due to the busy itinerary and alcoholic beverages they might not suit families with young children. However, the tours can be altered to included family-friendly lunches and alcohol-free toasts.
What languages are your tours available in?
Currently English for small groups (under 8) but for larger groups I can provide French, Spanish and Russian speaking guides
Do you offer tours of the rest of Ireland?
Sorry, not at this current time. I am an area expert for the Leinster region and prefer to focus on this area knowing I can answer any and all questions, and highlight the profound beauty, the wonderful heritage and fantastic people of this region. I can provide a multiple day tour taking in Wicklow, Wexford Kilkenny and Waterford and leave you on the final day in Cork. Where you can continue your vacation into the Wild Atlantic Way with a guide I can recommend if you are looking for such a service.
