Health and Safety Protocols for CIE Tours

Before 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 Team

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.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Our itinerary was exactly as explained in the description. Once we arrived, our tour guide, John, was absolutely outstanding. He was funny, knowledgeable, and showed us things that weren't on the listed itinerary but we're on the route. Fabulous trip!! Would absolutely recommend this one.

Did Ireland pub tour. Great tour,great tour guide. Learned a lot of Irish history plus had a lot of fun.

Amazing value and excellent accommodations consistent with daily tour itinerary following theme of tour.

The tour director/bus driver was professional and welcoming to all the guests.

Very disappointed with what was called a pub tour. We only spent two nights dining in a pub with the group. Every other time we ate dinner at the hotel and went our own way afterwards. That was not the way a pub tour was described to me. I thought we would be doing more as a group and spend more time in pubs listening to music and having dinner there and mingling more with the local poeple, getting to know their culture. Very disappointed.

A wonderful tour! Great fun, excellent choice of activities, and for the most part, top notch accommodations and meals. I highly recommend this tour, and hope you get our awesome tour director, Johnny. His stories and jokes livened up our days! My only concern was that as Canadians, we didn't receive our tour packages in advance, so I felt less prepared than others ( ie backpack, tax card, etc) .

Tour and booking was great. Only problem is they should inform you of a time table before hand.

We took the Irish Pub Tour and it was FANTASTIC!!! We visited interesting places, saw some traditional tourist places and some cool, out of the way sites, and had a pint in some of the best bars in the world at the end of the day. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy Ireland and all the wonderful spirits produced there. Our bus driver was amazing - he was knowledgeable about Irish history and folklore, the sites and places we went to see, and was a wealth of information on where to get great food and drink in every town and city we visited. He was funny and helpful when needed, and he took care of everyone. We were on time for everything and enjoyed him tremendously. C.I.E. provided us with a great trip and I would definitely book with them again. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Ireland!
