British Isles Vacations

Tours to this part of the world can visit England, Ireland (also known as the Irish Republic), Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. While escorted tours include a guide who travels with the group, we also offer packages that include only hotel stays but allow ample free time.

Great Britain is a region of fascinating history, sweeping scenic landscapes and vibrant culture. While in England, you might stop at legendary Stonehenge, with its massive stone structures that some believe to be 4,000 years old, or Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare. Explore the beautiful Lake District, which inspired many 19th-century poets, or take in the sights of London, from the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace to the magnificent St. Paul's cathedral.

To the north is Scotland, where most itineraries spend time in Edinburgh. Tour participants often travel the Royal Mile to the city's castle to see the Scottish Crown Jewels. In this land of heather-cloaked moors, you may also have a chance to sample the products at a whisky distillery or scan Loch Ness for its mythical monster.

In Wales, highlights can include the Gothic-style Cardiff Castle in the capital city, the lovely vistas of Snowdonia National Park and the imposing citadel at Caernarfon. Hop across St. George's Channel to reach the Emerald Isle. Scenic highlights of Ireland, or the Irish Republic, include the towering Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry, which winds past seascapes and mountain peaks. In Northern Ireland, see the unusual basalt columns of the Giant's Causeway or the landmarks of Belfast.
