Mythic Greece, the cradle of Western civilization, is the home of democracy, art, and culture. Philosophy was raised to a science, and the gods ruled over all. Greece is at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa, and is also heir to the heritage of the Ottoman Empire. Bordered by the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Ionian Seas, you are never far from a beautiful beach.

Let us take you on a 12-Day adventure through sleepy towns with inspiring history, legendary food and drink, and a walk through the mysteries of gods and goddesses. Discover both her ruins and her modern personality. A local guide is with you every step of the way. We travel in comfortable, air-conditioned mini coaches with windows that frame extraordinary views. This is remarkable Greece at her finest.

"Sisters Trip"



Jolene was wonderful! She’s a friendly and professional trip advisor and arranger. She put together a 12-day tour of the Wild Atlantic Way in southwest Ireland for us. We’re happy to say that everything went smoothly and to plan, including picking up the rental car, the hotel reservations, the ticket vouchers for tours, the highlights to see along the way and returning the car. Jolene promptly followed up on emails, questions and phone calls before our trip and made sure everything was set up and in place. She made sure to cover all the “what if” questions before we left but we didn’t need any further assistance once in Ireland. My family and I would not hesitate to recommend Authentic Vacations because of the attention to detail and great customer service, especially from Jolene!

"Couples Vacation"



Lauren was wonderful to work with and helped us plan a perfect vacation in Ireland. Everything from our flights, rental car, and every BNB was outstanding! We've used Authentic Vacations for 3 trips to Ireland …'s to planning the 4th in the near future! Thanks Lauren!

"Wonderful Ireland"



Amber, Ireland is wonderful, and we’re having a ball. We got in to Kinsale late this afternoon and are taking a breather now to overcome some jet lag. When the town wakes up tomorrow, we’ll see it and shop a bit before going on to Killarney and Muckross.  By the way, The Irish House Party was perfect. Fun, not loud and crass but classy and friendly, entertainment. We recommend it highly. Thank you for all you did to help us put this trip together.

"Amore Italy"



I am a travel advisor that uses Authentic Vacations and my client just got back from Italy and can't say enough about the Italy tour we booked for her.  It was a Rome add on for cruise clients - it was a 3 night behind the scenes of agent Rome, and they LOVED it!!  Thank you, Ellie. The hotels, tours everything was great.  My clients want to go back to Italy again and I will use Ellie and Authentic Vacations in a heartbeat!!

We recently returned from a dream trip in Scotland and Ireland. We worked with Lonna and she is incredible.
