United Kingdom and Ireland Private Tours and Small Group Tours

United Kingdom & Ireland Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Famed for their music, theater, literature and sport, these small island nations have had an outsize influence on the world
Situated off the coast of western Europe, the United Kingdom’s four countries—England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland—and the Republic of Ireland have long stood apart from the European mainland, defined by the mingling of their native Celts and Anglo-Saxons with visitors like the Norse, Romans, and Normans.

These unique dynamics are reflected in the UK and Ireland, which all bear distinct customs and traditions but also share a long history of cultural innovation—ranging from illuminated manuscripts to Shakespeare to soccer—not to mention a lively and welcoming pub culture.

Fiona was outstanding, relating equally well with the kids (teens) and their dad. It was a super fun day with Fiona.
We have used Context for many years and Tim ranks among the best guides we've ever had. Knowledgeable, engaging, considerate. Our day with Tim was the highlight of our London experience.
Rosemary is thoroughly professional, of another generation and work ethic. My one suggestion is that Stonehenge is very complex, and might benefit from more contextual materials. For example, materials summarizing, "what we know and what we do not know". Or materials (e.g., maps) describing the geographical relationships between the island and continental groups of the period. I found myself (and believe the kids did too) seeking to place the stones within larger patterns. Otherwise, it's just picture taking, as Rosemary noted. Bath is more easily grasped, and Rosemary did a great job with this. For what it's worth, it was fun to hear from Gary, our driver, with respect to the local perspective. They were a great team.
