At CIE Tours, we’re passionate about providing a superb travel experience.  Each year we ask our guests to rate every aspect of our tours, from attractions to the all-important hotels where they begin and end each day.  We want their honest opinions, and we use this information to continually refine and improve our tours as well as reward our top partners.

For more than 30 years, our annual CIE Tours Awards of Excellence have been a coveted achievement throughout Ireland and the UK, and the success of this constant feedback is reflected in our 95% customer satisfaction rate. Each of our CIE Tour partners who qualified for an award, delivered an exceptional quality experience and welcome to visitors, achieving a customer satisfaction rating of over 92%.


2020 Partner Recognition Program -  All Stars and Rising Stars

For 2020 no tours meant no customer feedback, but we hate to miss a chance to celebrate the partners who help us to create experiences of a lifetime. That’s why in 2021 we are taking the opportunity to reflect back on our 30 years of customer feedback to recognize the hotels and attractions that have consistently delivered a superior guest experience. All-Stars are decades old partners that year after year score in the top tier of customer satisfaction. Rising-Stars are up-and coming partners who don’t have the same long history with CIE Tours, but reliably receive high scores from our guests.
