Where do we go?


Ireland is a wonderful place to visit: It’s got an unrivaled reputation for friendliness, a rich store of music and lore, and a fascinating cultural heritage arising out of its turbulent history. There are so many reasons to explore – and love– this magical destination. From the spectacular scenery including the majestic Cliffs of Moher to the winding roads of the Ring of Kerry, this special island will capture your imagination.


Discover the majesty of Scotland on your next vacation. This breathtakingly beautiful, friendly and dynamic country has so much to offer visitors: epic history, a distinctive Gaelic cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and storied great cities. Scotland is also a photographer’s dream – from the stunning wilds of The Rannoch Moor and the mysteries of Loch Ness, to dozens of imposing castles and the charming Jacobite Steam train, and much more, you’ll never run out of things to see and do!


From the awe-inspiring sights of London to the ancient wonders of Stonehenge, our tours to England are a great mix of the hot spots on everyone’s bucket list. England is also a literature lover’s dream. Discover the birthplace of the Bard himself in Stratford-Upon-Avon. See where Shakespeare was born and spent his childhood, and discover more about his life and work. Or if you’re a fan of the magical world of Harry Potter, you might be up for being transported to Hogwarts with a visit to Warner Bros Studio’s “The Making of Harry Potter to see original sets, along with real movie props and costumes.


Wales is full of charm, with plenty of picturesque delights, and has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world – over 600 of them! While many have returned to nature and only mounds remain, you can still see about 100 still standing, in various levels of ruin or restoration today. Cardiff Castle is a particular favorite – this restored medieval castle is one of the most beautiful and most historic in Britain. It’s a Roman fort that became a Norman castle and was renovated into a fantastic palace during the Victorian era, in the Gothic Revival style. Today, you can tour the castle and many of our guided vacations that go to Wales allow you to enjoy an evening of Welsh entertainment and a traditional banquet in the castle.


Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. CIE Tours is thrilled to offer escorted tours to this amazing destination for the first time!


For lovers of art, history, architecture, delicious food, beautiful countryside or “la bella vita,” Italy is a dream come true! Experience all the highlights – the top attractions, most-beloved sights, and magnificent scenery. While the itinerary is brand-new, you’ll get all the signature features of the CIE Tours experience that we’re famous for: local, highly knowledgeable guides with a knack for storytelling; immersive experiences; and small, luxury coaches. Come explore with us on this exciting new escorted tour and get 10% off for a limited time!
