CIE has the best hotels and include so many activities

We had a wonderful trip. We were very pleased with the itinerary and the quality of hotels provided through CIE. We would recommend CIE again.

Everything exceeded expectations. I couldn't be happier with our CIE tour.

We had a lovely tour throughout Ireland. The service and accommodation exceeded my expectations! We were fortunate to have good weather. Ireland is very beautiful and the people are gracious to all tourist!

CIE is a solid company who provide friendly, strong tours. Affordable Tours was a excellent company to book through. Having both companies working together to support us outside the tour then during the tour was helpful. We had a very bad situation happen at one of the hotels when the hotel baggage people misplaced our luggage into an empty room thus we did not get our luggage. The CIE director had the hotel staff search every room until the misplaced luggage was found. This piece of luggage had all my wife's clothes and very valuable things locked in it. If not for the tour director this in issue could have been quite miserable for us. The hotel was not taking us seriously until she stepped in and resolved the problem. She was a strong tour director which helped the tour run smoothly.

Good starter tour for someone new to the UK. Use of a Hop on Off in London let's people see more of what interests them. Dinner at the hotel in Bath was excellent.

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.

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.
