Get a little more space to explore

If you love the idea of group travel but want a more intimate experience, our small group departures can offer you the best of both worlds. 

With just 26 guests on our small group tours, you'll almost always get a window seat with panoramic views of the incredible scenery, you'll have more access to the guide and local experts, and you'll enjoy a little more time at each stop. 

You'll find small group departures for most of our itineraries—just look for the SG notation and for departure dates that work for you.

Toasting at Cleaver East restaurant, Dublin

"Our tour was very well organized. The tour guides and drivers were excellent, very knowledgeable, extremely personable with great attention to detail. Accommodations and meals were all excellent, and a very comfortable coach. Great choices for attractions. We hope to go on another CIE tour in future—we felt totally spoiled."
