Our Travel Directors are carefully selected for their local knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm. They go through an advanced training course and our development program ensures they’re able to share their stories and knowledge with you. They’re truly Local Experts and are with you every step of the way; whether it’s sharing their favorite local gems or giving local tips and recommendations, they help make the most of your time to ensure the best vacation possible.



Our Local Specialists on our Guided vacations meet you along your journey and help you connect with the places you visit on a deeper level with history, culture, insights and anecdotes. They are true locals with a breadth of knowledge and can answer all your questions.

“I'm able to show guests what makes Ireland is so special, that's us, the Irish people.”

– Stephen Clarke, Local Specialist, Westport, Ireland



On our Be My Guest experiences on our Guided trips, we connect you with Ireland and Scotland locals who are proud to welcome you into their home and share their culture. You’ll experience traditional eats and get a view through the eyes of a local while your host tell tales of their homelands and offers their warm Celtic hospitality.

We give our visitors the unique chance of getting under the skin of Scotland and the Scots.  We are all musicians and we really enjoy sharing the music of Scotland -and Ireland- with our guests.

– Fergus Wood, Be My Guest Host, Scotland



While traveling on our Locally Hosted Rail vacations, our Local Hosts are waiting to greet you in each city. They are available 24/7 to give you the ins and outs of the destination, providing tips, local spots to eat or enjoy a wee dram, and give you a taste of the Celtic friendliness they’re known for.



Our private chauffeurs give you the ultimate, personalized experience and are with you every step of the way. Not only do they get you safely from place to place, our chauffeurs have expert knowledge about their country and bring each destination to life with the tales and history of their homelands. No task is too big or too small for our chauffeurs and you can plan your days with them as you prefer and at your own pace.

“I am really proud of Ireland and really enjoy showing guests around the country and seeing the enjoyment they get from their vacation here.”

– Brian B. Private Chauffeur, Ireland
