Heritage and High Spirits on a Trip to Ireland and the UK

On a trip to Ireland and the UK, every place tells a splendid story. No matter which countries of the region you tour—England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, or Ireland—you’ll find the land steeped in rich history, heritage, and cultural traditions.

Imposing castles and stately medieval cathedrals are a ubiquitous part of the landscape. You may feel you’re in a time warp when you stop at historic inns and country guest houses, dreamy stone cottages with exquisite gardens, and vintage and antique shops.

While London is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest cities with cutting-edge culture, art, museums, theatre, and iconic landmarks, there are many other fabulous smaller towns and cities to explore. You can have a full English breakfast in the gorgeous Georgian city of Bath, lunch in the idyllic village of Castle Combe, and be sipping a pint by the river in the university town of Oxford by dinnertime.      

The British and Irish countryside oozes charm. Journey through the picturesque English Cotswolds, or past cliffs and coastal towns in Ireland’s County Cork and County Kerry. Breathtaking scenery is an understatement whether you are exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Lake District, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, or the Scottish Highlands with its legendary Loch Ness.

The UK and Ireland are known for the quality of their spirits. Scottish and Irish whisky trails include calls at historic distilleries for tastings. Here visitors get to sample a range of aromas and flavors until they find their very own favorite single malt. Alternatively, savor artisanal gins or ales, along with hearty local fare at a cozy pub or bar. The Irish capital Dublin is home to the Guinness brewery and storehouse, but it’s also a UNESCO City of Literature, as is the Scottish capital Edinburgh.

For the literary traveler the British Isles is a top destination. References from literature abound. For some, a visit to Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station or Sherlock Holmes’ 221B Baker Street in London may suffice. Others will settle for nothing less than a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of Shakespeare, to watch a riverside performance by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Whatever you do, set aside an afternoon for a quintessential British indulgence—full afternoon tea—best experienced at an elegant hotel or tea room. For our part at Enchanting Travels, we’ll make sure we create the high tea of UK and Ireland itineraries for you. We’ll round up an ideal tour, with perfect sips and bites to suit your every fancy. The only thing we can’t predict is the weather.

OUR AWARDS
At Enchanting Travels, our unique tours are built on extensive knowledge of our destinations, an outstanding team of professionals, and personalized top-notch service. In 2019, we were recognized with the Travel Weekly Magellan Gold Award for being the World’s Leading Tour Operator – Overall. In 2020, we have been nominated by World Travel Awards as Europe’s and North America’s Leading Tour Operator, and have won the Most Trusted Online Tour Operator Award by Lux Life Magazine.

My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!

“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”

“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”

Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!

“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”
