Health & Safety Guidelines
As the leader in Ireland and Britain and one of the longest-standing tour operators in North America, CIE Tours is partnered with the leading tourism authorities, and operates at the highest levels of health and safety guidelines in the US and Europe, including regional and national standards for COVID-19 procedures. We are proud to work in conjunction with the following organizations and charters and operate in compliance with all local and international tourism certification guidelines.
For guests traveling with CIE Tours after January 1, 2023, COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended, but no longer required.
On the Road
100% of the airflow on the coaches comes from fresh air from outside the vehicle and is continuously run through high efficiency filters. For those who prefer a smaller group and more independence, we have an extensive offering of small group departures, private driver vacations and self-drive options.
Our Tour Directors are not only local experts but are also trained to handle a variety of unexpected situations - including illnesses and emergencies. They are thoroughly trained on enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures and ensure that guests know what to expect every step of the way. If any issues arise, we have systems and protocols in place and the Tours Directors also have extensive local support to assist.
Our in-country operations and logistics team is on call 24/7. In Ireland alone, we have 30 back-office operations staff with an accumulated 500 years of experience with CIE Tours. This team, based in our Dublin operations office, is always ready to assist you and our Tour Directors in the event of an emergency.
