2018 Portugal Small Group Tour. Ron and I had a wonderful vacation!! I feel we gained a great understanding of the country and its history, as well as, its current condition in the EU. The locations you selected were awesome, and the activities were a great way to experience Portugal, not just see it.
Jorge was an amazing wealth of knowledge and such a kind man. The group was really good fun to travel with...and it all went by too fast. Thanks for everything. Another great memory for us.
Cheers, Pam and Ron
Memorable extended family holiday. Organizing 3 families with 5 adults, 3 young adults and 2 children around the holiday is not easy.
We were looking for a safe, fun and easy going destination and the folks at Further Afield delivered in spades. Not only did they manage to co-ordinate all of us in 3 different departing cities to arrive minutes of one another, they recommended a wonderful destination with a little bit of everything for everyone. In the end a memorable family holiday.
From beginning to end, the service from the folks at Further Afield was impeccable. Clear and prompt communication, accurate paperwork and documentation and just the right amount of follow-up. Thanks for a great week Further Afield.
I have used Further Afield for many different travel bookings, including a wonderful mother/daughter Alaskan Cruise, a private island getaway in the Grenadines, a hiking trip in the Carolinas, a weekend getaway in Utah and a tour of Portugal.
The team at Further Afield are extremely thorough and responsive to my needs. Their suggestions are always spot on, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every travel experience they have booked for me. I highly recommend them!
Ireland small group tour, 2017. Our trip to Ireland was all we could hope for. The attention to detail, the accommodations and the itinerary choices were all exceptional - even our weather cooperated.
We especially loved listening to our bus driver Joe's informative commentary. His exceptional knowledge of all things Irish and sense of humour were most enjoyable. Many thanks Sandy.

Ireland small group tour, 2017. I found travelling to Ireland with Further Afield provided some of life's greatest memorable moments.
When you decide on a vacation your aspirations are always to see more than what is offered at home. On many occasions, the plans went "beyond their duties". They offered a fun time, with knowledge and hassle free travel experience.
Ireland, Small Group Tour - 2017. It was with great pleasure that we joined Further Afield Travel in September on their tour of Ireland. After reading the itinerary our expectations were high but our expectations were more than exceeded thanks in part to the personalized attention to every detail by owner of Further Afield Travel who accompanied us on the tour and made sure every day ran smoothly for us all.
Our bus driver/guide was incredible with an encyclopedic knowledge of all aspects of Ireland so that by the time we left we had a deep insight into Irish culture. Five star accommodation, wonderful meals, great times. I would not hesitate to recommend Further Afield Travel to anyone and I am sure we will be accompanying Further Afield on another adventure in the future.
Ireland Small Group Tour - 2017. I wanted to thank you for a wonderful two-week trip to Ireland. Jeff and I feel that we saw a lot in two weeks and especially liked that it wasn't all museums and castles.
I think the Murphy's Pub experience, Bushmills whiskey tasting, the jaunting car ride and Merry Ploughboy's show set it apart from other itineraries. We especially enjoyed our evening at the pub in Dublin. Hopefully we can travel with you again someday.
