The staff at Further Afield have been wonderful to deal with! Rona got back to me promptly and the whole booking process went very smoothly.

Beth and Sandy were extremely helpful as well. I will definitely remember to reach out to Further Afield again when booking future vacations and will recommend you to others, if the opportunity arises

Well planned!

2018 Ireland Exclusive Small Group Tour. A great big thank you, Further Afield and Joe Fahy for a most wonderful experience of Ireland.

The trip was well planned and each stop was a new experience. The accommodations all exceeded expectations and I especially appreciated the smaller group.

Look forward to my next Further Afield tour.

2018 Ireland Exclusive Small Group Tour. If you are looking for a great way to tour Ireland in style, we highly recommend Further Afield Travel and Tours - Signature Ireland Small Group Tour - Castles, Countryside and Irish Heritage.

Sandy, our tour leader, took care of all the little details, and the accommodations were top notch. We even stayed in a castle for two nights!!! Joe, our driver/guide, was a delight with his extensive knowledge of Ireland and jokes.

It was a great worry free trip!!!

2018 Ireland Exclusive Small Group Tour. This was hands down, THE best organized group tour I have ever been on!

Truly an educational experience!

2018 Ireland Exclusive Small Group Tour. My wife and I have just returned from a 12 day excursion of Ireland with FURTHER AFIELD TRAVEL out of Oakville, Ontario. 

Our tour director was one of the co-owners, Sandy Lidka, and she was marvellous . Our accommodations were awesome, and every day brought more jaw-dropping scenery with many side trips off the beaten track that the average tour wouldn’t even think of including. It helps that Sandy has many ties in Ireland.  Both Sandy and our driver/guide  “Joe” blew us away with their knowledge of the country’s history , culture and politics . It was a truly an educational experience . 

We would not hesitate for a second to recommend FURTHER AFIELD TRAVEL to our family and friends, and we shall look forward to future tours with them . 

Most sincerely, David & Mary

Crazy Last Minute Trip - Portugal. I would like to thank Further Afield Travel and Tours, especially Sandy, for putting up with me and my crazy last minute trip.

Sandy answered my many, many emails pretty much instantly with the information I needed and was able to put together a great little trip with only a few days to spare. I've worked with them before and have always been super happy with how thorough they are. I am so glad to have these guys because they do all the work and I do all the travel!!

Many, many thanks.

Further Afield has not only organized our air travel both domestically and internationally, but also booked hotels, cruises, hikes and many other travel activities! Sandy Lidka, our key contact, is also quickly accessible when the need arises!

Villa and Tour in Italy. Dear Further Afield, thanks for such a great job organizing our Italy trip. Thanks to you, we avoided long line ups and enjoyed many hours of sight seeing instead of standing in lines. We were treated like real VIP's 


...from the airport, to the train station and to the great hotels...first class. We would certainly recommend your services to anyone travelling to Italy if they want to have a most memorable vacation.
