Susie,Glad to be back home after an amazing adventure. Tauck made this special in every way--very knowledgeable tour director with a great sense of humor, the hotels were definitely five star and all the details of the tour were perfect in every way. It is difficult to name one highlight. Visiting Varanasi at sunrise with a boat ride on the Ganges and then returning to the cremation area by boat at sunset, being the first couple let in to see the Taj Mahal at sunrise, riding an elephant up to the palace in Jaipur, a hot air balloon ride over villages near Udaipur, and seeing the villages of Karala in southern India on a rice boat were all highlights. It will take us awhile to process all that we saw and experienced. On top of it all, the group we traveled with were all enjoyable. Looking forward to hearing about your trip.--Elaine

Lough Corrib
When your Frostian heart demands the road less traveled and your dreams beckon to places not yet seen, prevail upon the powers of Art of Travel to transform your intentions to reality.  

A woman on a mission, I required an itinerary with well-planned logistics whilst exploring specific archeological sites in the west of Ireland, from Galway to the surrounds of Beautiful Clew Bay with an island for every-day of the year.  Art of Travel plans maximized every moment. By providing the perfect, knowledgeable-chauffeur, I experienced a seamless extension of planning real-time oversight lending the necessary flexibility to accomplish all my goals. Plus, extras!

From the wild Atlantic Way and Connemara, to Cork and then Dublin, Art of Travel facilitated access to every request for people and places.  I should have asked to meet the President! Art of Travel connected all dots into a trip of ideal beauty and form.  Helen
