The flexibility you want

Plus, you’ll meet some fantastic like-minded travelers!

What do we mean by “independent,” “flexible” or “semi-escorted” tours?

We arrange for transportation from town to town, rather than travelers having to drive themselves (self-drive), or having to be stuck on a bus with a tour group for the duration of their trip (fully-escorted). Paired with a provided itinerary and optional tours and attractions, this is the perfect way to combine the structure you need, with the flexibility you want!

Is our tour departure guaranteed?

All tours are guaranteed and will not be canceled due to a lack of travelers. Our flexible transportation contracts allow for us to run a tour with anywhere from three to twenty people.

Tours with less than three (3) travelers signed up per week will be presented with transportation alternatives and pricing as door-to-door transfers with a driver is not guaranteed with less than four (4) combined travelers per transfer.

What type of transportation will we use while traveling on a Hopper?

Hopper tours, depending on your country and itinerary, utilize a combination of transfer types including door-to-door transfers with a driver, trains and/or scheduled bus.

For scheduled Hopper tours with door-to-door transfers between towns, vehicle types will vary depending on group size. While we don’t retain a single vehicle for the duration of your trip, we do work with several local transportation and tour suppliers to ensure comfortable, hassle-free transfers and sightseeing excursions. The type of transfer may vary and is subject to change based on the total number of travelers traveling to/from the same destination on any particular date.

Airport transfers to/from the airport are provided via scheduled service shuttle buses to the city-center. Upgrades may be available for door-to-door transfers with a driver.

If customizing your own Hopper we can help you set up various types of transportation between towns including a private driver, train and/or scheduled coach bus transfer. When utilizing scheduled transportation the proximity from pick-up and drop-off points to your assigned hotel may require up to a few block walk or hiring a taxi at your own expense. Maps of locations will be provided.

What type of accommodations do you use for a Hopper tour?

With a commitment to immersing travelers in the culture of each city, Tenon selects accommodations that enhance a traveler’s experience. Accommodations are carefully chosen based on location and quality in an effort to meet our travelers’ expectations and ensure satisfaction. Hotel locations provide easy accessibly to attractions, restaurants, pubs and public transportation. Whether it’s a boutique hotel or a large chain property, our hotels will always have a quality rating of three or four stars and a TripAdvisor rating of three or higher. Tenon offers a wide variety of hotels in each of the cities on our Hopper Tours. Hotels are subject to availability and the discretion of Tenon Tours. Hotels of the same class not listed below may also be substituted. Travelers’ exact hotel assignments will be issued with travel documents 7 to 10 days prior to departure.

Some hotel examples in Ireland may include: Jurys Inn, International Hotel Killarney, The Western Hotel-Galway, Best Western, Bunratty Castle Hotel, Kilkenny Pembroke Hotel, Park Inn Radisson, Hilton Garden Inn, Academy Plaza Hotel or similar.

Some hotel examples in Scotland may include: Parliament Hotel Edinburgh, Jurys Inn, Glen Mhor Hotel, Best Western, Brooks Hotel, Hampton by Hilton, The Golden Lion, or similar.

When should I arrive at the airport?

Play it safe and plan to arrive 2.5 to 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time to allow for any unexpected delays in traffic, check-in, security, or long lines at the newsstand!
