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!
Exceeded my expectations. Wonderful accommodations, very interactive experience with the tour stops.
Wonderful experience, we are looking forward to booking another tour.
Price very reasonable. Nice accommodations. Great tours and good amount of free time.
It was a great experience from beginning to end.
I would highly recommend CIE Tours. The tour, accommodations and food were excellent. Our driver, David, was the best!
2nd trip with CIE. both were up to expectations. good drivers and guides. good selection of places to tour.
This was a great tour with lots of included activities. CIE was very accommodating and helpful.
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.
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.
CIE was great. Tour Director was wonderful.
