Our Inclusive Advantage

Get more without spending more! Other tour operators charge extra for some aspects of the tour – but with CIE Tours, there are no optional extras. Everything you’ll need is included in the price.

No optional extras means more money in your pocket.

We include the entrance fees to all listed attractions and traditional entertainment. You’ll get most meals, including daily hot breakfast starting on Day 2, plus a welcome drink to meet your tour director and fellow guests.

All on-tour transportation is included. Plus, get free wifi on coaches and in hotels. We’ll handle one suitcase per person throughout your holiday, and we’ll cover all local taxes and hotel service charges.

Our trip was everything I thought it could be and more. CIE was wonderful to work with, and I tell everyone to check them out. Thank you, CIE, for the trip of a lifetime.
