Booking through CIE took the guess work out of everything and I didn't have to worry about a thing before, during, or after.

Trip:

From the time we booked throughout the entire tour CIE was fantastic. Booking was easy and the agent was helpful. Our guide and driver Brian was the best. He was organized, knowledgable and very entertaining. We had been nervous about taking a tour but we saw more and learned more about Ireland than we would have on our own. We would recommend this company to anyone looking for a perfect vacation!

Trip:
Service:
Our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and courteous at all times! He always made sure we understood where to be and at what time each day. He pointed out points of interest along the way and filled us in with lots of history and folktales during our drive. We got to see and experience many of the highlights of Ireland without the trouble of learning to drive and possibly getting lost in a new country! Our hotels were amazing and beautiful and were full of rich history. Our bus was amazingly clean and comfortable, which was one thing that had concerned me before we got there. I would definitely travel with CIE again!

Trip:
Service:
I prefer to talk to a real person rather than booking online. The CIE representative was patient, very knowlegeable and made the booking process easy. Our follow up emails were always answered quickly and efficiently and changes were made without a hastle

Trip:
Service:
The tour was great! I suggested places I had not seen before and they were included on the tour along with places I enjoyed seeing once again.

Trip:
Service:
The booking service was fairly simple and easy.

Trip:
Service:
CIE gave us the most immersive experience possible in the 8 days we were in their care. I cannot imagine a better introduction to Ireland than the historical and cultural staples we visited during our Irish Adventure Tour. Our driver and host, Paddy, was incredibly informative but also exceptionally hospitable and pleasant. We will definitely book with CIE in the future!

Trip:
Service:
I would definitely buy from CIE again. The service was great. I basically just had to show up.

Trip:
Service:
Very helpful and answered all my questions to my satisfaction.

Trip:
Service:
Very professional, our trip was everything I thought it could be and more. CIE was wonderful to work with and answered any possible question I could come up with. I will definitely use them again in the future and I also tell everyone that will listen to check them out. Our coach driver, Patrick, was professional and extremely knowledgeable about everywhere we traveled and even places we didn’t. Thank you CIE for the trip of a lifetime.

Trip:
Service:
CIE is a first class travel agency to Ireland. I would recommend to anyone their tours to Ireland.

Trip:
Service:
I had a few issues when I had to change my dates. Not the best follow up, but might have been me being anxious also.

Trip:
Service:
They were fantastic from beginning to end. The tour guide Patrick was great. He made the trip. So informative and fun. It was the trip of a lifetime and can't wait to go back.

Trip:
Service:
Great tour- Ireland is beautiful! Didn't like our bus driver/ tour guide. I don't think he ever learned the names of anyone in our party, and he was pretty gruff. He also used his phone many times while driving those crooked Irish roads. ..made us very nervous.

Trip:
Service:
Overall, it was a good tour. But it would have been better if we would have had a professional guide on the coach during the tour too, not just a driver-guide! The local guides we had in some of the small towns we visited were excellent! - too bad we only had them for a short time! But the driver-guide and the local guide in Dublin were below expectations. It was also too much time spent on the coach and very early departures every morning! So it felt a bit superficial and rushed, but otherwise we wouldn't have covered that much. Some of the hotels and meals could be improved, but in general they were ok.

Trip:
Service:
The agent who booked our tour did everything I asked of him -- including calling our fellow travelers to arrange for us to travel together.

Trip:
Service:
This was a fantastic trip. Everything was super easy all we had to do was show up and gave a good time.

Trip:

Well planned, we'll timed visits, packed with interesting history and destinations.

Murt made our vacation! The whole experience exceeded our expectations!

Booking through CIE was super easy and user friendly. The trip was well planned and well organized. There were great excursions planned and plenty of free time to explore.

Trip:
Service:
I liked CIE tours so much that this was my second tour with them and I brought three others with me.

Trip:
Service:
The tour was wonderful! Everything was well organized and planned out and even though we had a schedule of places to visit, we never felt rushed. Gerry our driver/guide was great with shared lots of information about Ireland, its history and politics, as well as the areas visited. The Adventure tour was ideal for getting to see many different areas of Ireland as well as major attractions. The hotels were comfortable and the food was always good. The choice of places to stop for lunch gave us a chance to dine in a really old Irish pub as well as taste traditional dishes. We would definitely use CIE tours again.

Trip:
Service:
Took my first tour to Ireland in May and everything went smoothly from start to finish. Thanks for a great time.

Trip:
Service:
Our visit to Ireland via CIE Tours was more than I could have ever imagined. Every need was met and our guide was happy to go the extra mile to please each person on the tour. Our love for Ireland and the people there has made us eager to return soon. We have shared our experience with other to encourage them to visit also.

Trip:
Service:
From the first phone encounter everyone was polite,knowledgable and helpful. Upon landing in Dublin we had no problem hooking up with the representative there, and from then on the CIE personnel and service continued to be excellent. Our guide/driver, Dave, was fabulous - personality and knowledge all rolled into one. In short, a great experience. We saw and learned so much on this first visit to Ireland and were enchanted with the country and the people. The only thing to complain about was that we did not have as much time as we would have liked in some special places that "spoke" to our family - but understand some things have to give on an organized tour.

Trip:
Service:
Everything was well planned, all hotels, tours, paperwork ahead of the trip with information including meals.

Trip:
Service:
Prompt pickup and delivery at the airport. Schedule was very well managed, and have already recommended CIE.

Trip:

Very easy. All needed information was well published on the website. All email inquiries were responded to very quickly.

Trip:

The entire trip was very well planned. The staff's at each hotel were very friendly and the tour guide was amazing

Trip:
Service:
Solid bus tour company. Well organized, all hotels and activities pre-booked as part of a package.

Trip:
Service:
We had a great time on our tour, but booking wasn't completely clear at the beginning (once they got our deposit). Specifically asked for a few places to see but when we arrived we found out we weren't seeing those places because we didn't book the last day. This was our first bus tour and our first tour of Ireland so we didn't know or understand the schedule resulting in what was a rocky start with the driver/tour guide but a fabulous finish. CIE never contacted me to apologize, explain or anything although Murt said he contacted the main office. I never heard from Ian Macgregor (our initial contact) although I emailed him and left about 5 phone messages.

Trip:
Service:
Pleasant representatives but often difficult to get on the phone when we call. We were also given incorrect information about a transfer to the hotel from the airport.

Trip:
Service:
Any time I had a question they were always helpful. It was easy to work with them even when we wanted to make changes. The trip itself was well organized and included all the things we wanted to see in Ireland

Trip:
Service:
Friendly, efficient, good follow up

Trip:
Service:
The online booking was easy to do and when questions came up they were quick to respond and help. They were very professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with CIE tours again.

The CIE tour specialist clearly explained all the aspects of our Irish tour. I was confident she was truly concerned that all my questions were fully answered.
