Learn More About CIE Tours
CIE Tours International has long been regarded as one of the best tour operators in Ireland. That's no surprise, as the company has been leading escorted tours of the country since 1932. Although the company focuses on tours in Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales, it continues to expand into Eastern Europe and Italy. Its river cruises along the Danube and in the Black Sea have also grown in popularity, with new itineraries being added each year.
Unlike some other escorted travel operators, CIE does not offer "optional excursions." All of the most important sightseeing, exciting activities and entertaining shows are included in your itinerary. This allows your tour director to focus on your needs and enjoyment of the tour, not selling additional day trips.
Also, CIE guarantees that no increase in land costs will be charged to the client once a deposit has been paid for the tour. This is your protection against international currency fluctuations.
Hygiene and Safety Protocols - CIE ToursBefore You Arrive
Because rules and guidelines vary from country to country and are continually changing, before you travel, we will provide you with the most up-to-date information to ensure you are informed about protocols in your destination.
Most airlines have announced new procedures including requiring flight attendants to wear masks, sanitizing all surfaces between flights and having seating configurations that allow for physical distancing. We recommend visiting your airline's website for specific information on their policies.On the Road
- For guests who elect to go on a group tour, the majority of our departures will be small groups, with a number of empty seats on coaches to allow guests to space out for a more comfortable experience. For those who prefer an even smaller group and more independence, we have an extensive offering of private driver and self-drive options. While specific protocols will vary from location to location, some general guidelines will be followed:
- The interiors of our coaches will be sanitized daily, including regular cleaning of high-touch areas and surfaces. Scheduled stops will facilitate frequent hand washing and hand sanitizer will be available at all times.
- At hotels, guest rooms will be disinfected thoroughly between stays and common areas such as lobbies, elevators, restaurants and fitness centers will be cleaned continuously throughout each day.
- When visiting attractions, all appropriate local safety precautions will be followed, and guests may be rotated in smaller sub-groups when necessary.
- Social distancing will be incorporated in some form in most activities and visits. Teams are working hard to make this as seamless as possible, ensuring your comfort and security.
Our Tour Directors are not only local experts but are also trained to handle a variety of unexpected situations - including illnesses and emergencies. They will be thoroughly trained on enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures, and will 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.
The trip was wonderful. This is our second CIE tour and totally enjoyed both and highly recommend.
Fantastic trip, more than I was expecting.
We greatly enjoyed this tour. The itinerary covered a lot of fabulous places to see, the accommodations were excellent, and the tour guide/coach driver was very entertaining and informative. We will definitely consider CIE and Affordable Tours in booking our next vacation. Thanks!
I expected more hands on guidance in the choice of pubs, more going as a group. However I liked very much our driver/guide, Matt Nolan. His manner was very pleasant, his introductions to the areas we visited and history talks were just enough, and he was skilled driver on the narrow roads. Time on the bus was calm and quiet which seemed to suit us. He managed all the travel details professionally.
Great tour, Highly recommended!
