Taking a ‘Chauffeur Holiday’ ? – Here’s what to look out for . . .

Chauffeur Holidays are great fun, just like taking a cruise, but on land.  You have all the benefits of a pre-planned journey (customised to your liking of course) plus the benefit of a knowledgeable Driver/Guide to whisk you through the countryside to your next destination, event or venue. What better way to enjoy a vacation than to sit back and experience the comfort of a Prestige Saloon, MPV, or luxury mini coach, to take you, your partner, family and friends into the most remote corners of this very green and pleasant land; especially along the Wild Altantic Way, and the most northerly regions of County Antrim.
