Royal Irish Tours (RIT) has been accepted into Virtuoso’s portfolio of luxury travel partners as the first supplier designated solely for the Canadian market. 

“Virtuoso’s acceptance process is incredibly selective, so becoming a preferred partner is a true honour,” said Conor Duffy, Vice-President of RIT. 

“The reputation Virtuoso member advisors have for outstanding dedication to their clients is a perfect fit with our own bespoke approach to service. Now that we’re part of this renowned network, we look forward to offering Virtuoso’s Canadian advisors and their clients special amenities, values and experiences that surpass their expectations.”

According to Tim Morgan, Director of Business Strategy in Canada for Virtuoso, travel to Ireland from Canada has doubled since 2010. 

“Virtuoso’s Canadian advisors asked us to add RIT to our portfolio as a respected tour operator who understands this market and can fulfill the increasing client demand," he said. "We’re delighted to welcome this family-owned and operated partner into the Virtuoso network and extend its experiential offerings to our Canadian clients.”
