This was my 4th tour with CIE. We were going with neighbors and had hope to get a discount. At first they wouldn't give us one but after an e-mail they not only gave me one but gave my neighbors one also. I was able to pay something every month for our two week tour. The only disappointment was that my neighbors were able to book transportation to the airport at the end of the trip and we were not offered that as we had to use a different airport at the beginning of the trip and find out own way to Glasgow. We were told we could not book transportation for one way.
Fantastic trip - I highly recommend this tour to everyone.Booking was incredibly easy and they were patient in answering all my questions. I talked with several different agents and each one was courteous and professional.
Every part of the booking experience and tour far surpassed my expectation. All you have to do is give them your information ... pay your fee and they take care of everything! Excellent phone etiquette!
Staying with CIETheir agent was very thorough. Loved the follow up and make sure we had everything covered. I wish they could have booked my pre and post hotel stays where I wanted. But that is a small price to pay. Good detail and everything was as planned. CIE has had great drivers and guides. They move so everything stays smooth. They try and insure your needs and whims are met. I have traveled there 9 times and CIE's tours have been among the easiest and most inclusive.
First Class tourThis was a first class operation, providing excellent lodging and a wonderful tour guide. Michael Connelly made this a very special tour and took care of our every need. We will definitely book with this tour service in the future.
CIE Tours was excellent!We were very impressed with how seamless everything was with CIE Tours. They were on time, no hassle with the luggage and our driver, Pat Smith, was excellent. He was very informative and so much fun to travel with. Would definitely use CIE again and have recommended them already!
Awesome trip to Prague, Vienna and BudapestGreat trip, great tour guide, loved all three destinations, included meals were great, local guides were also good. Marco the bus driver was terrific. Hotels were good, upgraded to water view in Budapest which was spectacular. Generally loved everything.

Had a great time despite the weather! I want to go back!!Our tour director was extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of Irish culture, history, politics, economy, etc. and he really "made" the tour. There were some times when we weren't able to do some things that were on the itinerary - due to weather - but our director did the best he could to arrange alternative plans. This trip hit many of the highlights of the Southern half of Ireland but it really only whet my appetite to come back for more!! We enjoyed every place we visited!
Our guide and driver were wonderful! Attention to detail and professional to the max!
