The Sloan Travel Difference

Small, Family-style, and Private Tour Groups.

The goal of a lot of the cookie-cutter, budget companies is to fill the bus to overflowing. At half to a fifth the size of most groups, Sloan Travel tours are designed to feel a lot more like family and a lot less like a wild herd of cattle, with 8-24 guests, per trip.

Simply put, it saves time! We get an estimated 45-90 minutes more out of every day with smaller groups. That’s like adding an entire extra day’s worth of experiences over the course of just one tour.

Full-time Services of an Energetic and Professional Guide.

Our guides will ensure that you experience the very best of each destination. Guides from many tour companies are often hired to simply to deal with the mechanics and work toward merchant kickback, but our guides are qualified and hired to help cultivate a smooth and enjoyable tour, enjoying every moment right alongside the group itself.

If ever you have a need, your guide will be there to help you navigate your way.

All Tours, Sights, and Admissions – at no extra cost

Our tours cover over 25 sightseeing stops per trip. Many companies charge you for these stops, but we will never do that.

Take our Connemara Coast tour of Ireland, it includes over 28 tours, sights, shows, and admissions; including, The Cliffs of Moher & Ocean Cruise, Trad on the Prom Irish Music & Dance Show, Kylemore Abbey & Gardens, The Ireland School of Falconry, plus much much more. All of it… included.

Great & Memorable Accommodations

To keep you well rested, we try and insure that most of our stops are for at least two nights when possible, and we now have a few tours where you never have to leave your accommodation. From ocean side cottages to Victorian manor houses, the accommodations we hand select for each tour will add to your overall custom experience.

Take the Highland Hideaway Tour, we stay in some lovely thatched roof cottages right next to a lake where ducks and swans are freely swimming around. They are quaint, comfortable, quiet, but still centerally located along our journey.

Two Meals Daily

On a Sloan Travel Tour, you can expect breakfast everyday, as well as either lunch or dinner along the way. All in all, two thirds of your meals are covered in your tour cost.

We give you a savory experience of the local cuisine, protect your wallet, and give you opportunities to make some delicious discoveries of your very own.
