Vacation:
We had a wonderful trip! We booked the Scotland and Ireland Gold 16 day escorted vacation. Everything was well organized with plenty of time to enjoy our surroundings. Our guides were well trained and had tons of information for us. The hotels along our journey did not disappoint, we felt like VIP’s throughout our stay. We would not hesitate to recommend CIE to our friends and would love taking another trip with them in the future. An added bonus were the friends we made on our trip. We are actually planning a vacation with great friends we met on this trip!

Needed more history type info on the Scotland trip. Couldn't turn the Irish guide off. In contrast, 5 years ago, Rose Petrie had maps and song handouts, taught us the names of things, played games with us (the prize was a bag of haggis chips), and made the trip memorable. I liked having all the entry tickets paid for up front too. Great value.

Yes I have recommended them to others. In the future I would use an agent rather than handling everything on my own. Your representatives were helpful and polite and efficient. It would have been easier to coordinate our plans with two of us traveling together but not at the same address.

The tour was well planned and managed. The tour guide, especially the lady that managed the Ireland portion of the tour was exceptional, taking into account that those of us arriving from the Scotland portion of the tour were already pretty worn out.

Customer: Linda Gail Dickey

Vacation:
Really good itinerary, drivers, tour guides, and lodging overall ...would have been perfect with a few less castles in Scotland and adding one full day at Isle of Skye. Also, felt rushed at times and had some really long days trying to accommodate shoppers at local vendors shops. Most lodging was located within walking distance to downtown areas which was really good. Also, a short escorted tour in Dublin would have been nice.

The tour directors and bus drivers were great. 5 stars The sites were great . 5 stars The hotels were great. 4 of 5 were 5 stars - Jury’s Glasgow 1 star The plane reservations system broke down. CIE failed to provide Klm/ Delta with my email address so I couldn’t print the boarding pass and failed to provide seat assignments from JFK and we were not told about the extra cost of $22.50 for wanting our assigned seats before we get to the airport and wanting them together. Moreover having to go to Amsterdam because there was no direct flight (except initially there was. ). Plus we had to wait 2 hours at Glasgow airport for other group members after leaving Albany at 8:30 am Tuesday September 25 and arriving at 10am the 26th. My luggage was also damaged beyond repair along with that thr suitcase wet through and my clothes being wet.

itinerary, bus driver, guides, hotels - everything was great. I only wish we would have had more time in St. Andrews. Scotland was my favorite part for the sheer beauty, history and scenery. The Irish people could not have been surpassed for warm, friendliness and kindness. I have nothing but glowing memories of my tour.

I rated my experience 4 stars because that was the rating of the hotels that we stayed at and food we experienced. Some hotels were more exceptional than others, but all in all, it was a four star experience. The guides, drivers, people we encountered deserve five stars. They were wonderful. I loved my experience in Scotland and Ireland. Our days were exhausting but I wouldn't eliminate anything from the itinerary.

Booking was by phone and went well. But no documents received until I called 4 weeks later. Our driver and tour guide in Scotland were exceptional. They were always in the lounge and dinning area in the evening to help in any way. They made the effort to engage anyone who sat by themselves. We couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Danny were delightful. Our driver and tour guide in Ireland were adaquet and polite. But they were not as personable nor as engaging as Pat and Danny. They did ask questions but were not about in the evening .

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.

Customer: Karen Reta Mckay

Date: 11/06/2018

Vacation:
I was unhappy with the amount of stops - too many which resulted in not being able to see each thing satisfactorily. When we stopped in a town - it was so late that the stops and attractions were closed and we left too early in the morning to see anything. The accommodations were often very far away from the town so unable to see things in the evening. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. One of our accommodations was far below sub-par - we should have received a refund for the terrible room that did not even have a bath tub or proper shower. Had a broken lamp, huge heave in the floor - terrible place.
