Grand Group Getaways!

Ever fancied taking the whole family away on a big grand European tour?  Not just immediate family, but whole generations of relatives as well! Be it your own parents, grandparents or uncles and aunties, travelling and experiencing some of the wonderful and facinating countries waiting to be explored.

 Travelling in a group can also save you money. For example, if you travel with Trafalgar Tours or Insight Vacations, you could save 5% for a group of  5 – 8 people on the LAND-only portion of your holiday. Even better, if nine or more guests travel together,  one traveller qualifies for a 50%* discount off the LAND-only portion of the holiday. In a group of 16 guests, one traveller qualifies for 100%* discount off the LAND-only portion of the holiday- WOW!

If you want to try visiting a few European countries or just stick to one, the choice is amazing as there are numerous travel companies wanting to make your wish come true – without all the hassle of having to plan things yourself! Take in a glimpse of Europe on a tour that lasts a week or try something longer for a much grander holiday.

The choices are endless and it’s not only Europe that wants your company, America and Canada also call for some extensive exploration in their vast landscapes of diverse cultures, breathtaking National Parks and stunning Canadian Rockies.


St. Patrick’s Day party in Ireland!


There is nothing better than the beautiful Emerald Isle to make your wishes come true!!

Even better is the fact that the Irish know how to party – big time! Be a part of the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day party in Dublin and rub shoulders with locals and travellers alike – thousands take to the streets to celebrate Ireland’s patron saint with their biggest annual party. Spend an epic day in the city packed with Irish culture & tradition, singing and dancing.

 Alternatively, spend the summer in this glorious land. The sights and scenery will take your breath away while the many pubs and restaurants will cater for your fun side and enable you to try out the best traditional Irish food and drink.

For a more mythical journey try visiting some of their wonderful old pubs where you might catch some good old story-telling reflecting some of Ireland’s myths, beliefs and folklore!

If that’s not convinced you, bear in mind that Ireland may be small, but the Guinness, excellent music and craic sure make up for it !
