Good price for a great tripYou had the best prices for the level of tour we were interested in. We were a bit frighrened to learn that the agent we were working with was no longer with your company but happily it all went well anyway.
We had terrific guides and bus drivers. The schedule and activities were all interesting and timed well for our energy level. Most of the hotels were fine. It was hot and most didn't have AC, but all the hotels met our needs. The one in Inverness was particularly lovely.
I would absolutely use CIE tours again. I loved that everything was paid for ahead of time. No hidden surprises. The hotels we stayed at were nice, I really liked the itinerary. It was our first time to Ireland and felt we got to see a lot during our stay. Everything was planned out ahead of time, very punctual. The best part of our whole trip was out tour driver Oisin Quinn. He was great!! He was full of knowledge and really gave us interesting information. He made the whole trip. Would love to go again.
We had Mick as our driver and Liam as our tour guide and they made the whole trip even better than we had expected. We all felt like we were their favorite group, and we all got along so well. There was so much fun every day and lots of interesting information. We didn't want to miss a minute of it. We were always on time everywhere and missed the crowds, plus we all had fun writing silly Limericks and Liam was always game to read them. Mick and Liam always greeted us and helped us in and out of the bus safely. Thank you for such a wonderful trip
Very satisfiedProfessional service from start to finish of the tour, our guide Elvis was excellent & very knowledgeable. The time spent at the different locations was just right and the local guides were very good.
Yes I would recommend them to friends and famiy.
What a wonderful trip!I enjoyed every minute of this trip. The accommodations were great, the bus was new, clean and comfortable and our guide was superior. I would absolutely recommend both this trip and this tour group. And I'm a tough cookie to please!
Tour was great but preparation was a bit lacking.It was a great tour. But, I was a bit nervous several times after we booked and before we left because there was absolutely no communication from them for months. I'd suggest that CIE follows the Viking Cruises model and set up some sort of automatic, "It's only 3 months until you go!" kind of email that is sent every month of so. That was literally my only concern in the whole process.
This holiday tour of Scotland was the second time I traveled with CIE. The best by far! I wouldn’t contemplate booking with any other company. Our brilliant tour guide Graham was so friendly and knowledgeable.
Our driver was The best super knowledgeable and wntertaining definately set the standards for my other tours which didn't even match up to his.
