Questions & Answers

Question: Are there any amenities for handicapped travelers?

There are accessible friendly tours and we can work with you to help accommodate your needs. Please call one of our travel consultants to confirm that the tour you are looking at is accessible friendly.

Question: Are the airport transfers included?

Airport transfers are included if you choose to purchase operator airfare through CIE. Any consultant here would be more than happy to make those arrangements for you. If you decide to book your own airfare then transfers will cost an additional amount.

The itinerary gave us a great feel for Ireland. It gave you experiences you wouldn't get traveling on your own. The driver / tour guide, John, was exceptional and well versed in the history and current climate of Ireland. The bus was clean and comfortable, offering WiFi and power ports. The hotels were very nice and accommodating.
