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.

Oh my goodness, Viv was amazing and wonderful! We had a great day and could have kept going.
We had an outstanding tour of Windsor Castle with Norma. Although we arrived somewhat late for our tour as a result of the heavy traffic getting to Paddington Station, Norma was waiting for us upon arrival. She made the most of the time we had remaking before the castle closed, and gave us an excellent tour.
Sarah is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. We enjoyed the tour with her very much and she was so kind to give us assistance to get to our next tour at Windsor Castle.
