Fantastic trip, more than I was expecting.

By Pamela A on Aug 11, 2019

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!

By Joan G on Aug 10, 2019

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.

By Thomas T on Jul 17, 2019

2nd trip with CIE. both were up to expectations. good drivers and guides. good selection of places to tour.

By Robert C on May 09, 2019

This was a great tour with lots of included activities. CIE was very accommodating and helpful.

By Thomas M on May 06, 2019

CIE is a very solid tour company. This was our third trip with CIE and we have toured with five other companies, all well known. CIE is not the cheapest, but the quality is excellent and there are no optional excursions. Everything is included in the price. This means they stick to popular tour options. Optional excursions offer the chance to customize the tour or to opt out of some selections. There were no CIE scheduled attractions that we would have left out. Service and organization were very sound as always.

By Glenda S on Apr 08, 2019

Our driver/ guide, Murt, made the whole experience very enjoyable. He had a great sense of humor, provided interesting stories & historical events and gave us the best amount of time each day to see all the events on our schedule.

By Raymond H on Mar 26, 2019

CIE was great. Tour Director was wonderful.

By Marilou V on Nov 11, 2018

Our tour director, Gary, was very professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. The itinerary was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable.
