Tour Ireland: explore your heritage: Driver guided tour
Sample tour focuses on the ancestry of someone who knows that their family came from Enniskillen in Northern Ireland. The tour can be adapted to suit for other cities or for a more general touring experience
to see Ireland and to experience the land of your forefathers.
Based on 4 people travelling together throughout the tour with a driver guide from Ireland and staying in Bed and Breakfast (B & B) accommodation, we can offer this tour for $1,300 per person subject to change based on
currency exchange rates and the availability of accommodation.
The tour can be adapted to your requirements, for example a longer stay in Dublin can be arranged.
The tour can take in the South of Ireland if that is where your heritage and ancestry is from.
We work with you to develop a tour to Ireland that fits with your knowledge of your family�s ancestry and home town or village, and we can also assist you with finding out more and undertaking new research.
