The Difference between Hopper Tours & Traditional Escorted Tours

Ireland.Kerry.RingofKerry.SSWhen you read “Tours to Ireland, the UK, Italy and/or Iceland” what do you think of? Most people picture the age-old group bus tour with 40 to 50 passengers traveling around the countryside day in and day out led by a guide carrying an umbrella, paddle or flag to make sure everyone stays together. 7:00 wake-up, 8:00 breakfast, 9:00 bus departure to hit the sights. Get back to your hotel in the evening for a group dinner with a set menu then maybe you’ll catch a trad session at a local pub if you’re close enough or mingle with the group at the hotel bar. Go to sleep and up the next day to do it again. This is the case NO MORE! There is a new way to explore our destinations.
