"Christmas in Ireland"

Julia H.

Shreveport, LA

This Ireland trip was amazing, and Jennifer did a wonderful job planning it! We booked it fairly last minute (booked the experience Nov 1st for a departure date of Dec 20th), but despite that, Jennifer was able to create an itinerary that covered everything we wanted to do and stay in amazing locations. All of the pre-booked events worked out flawlessly, never ran into any issues! Jennifer was super helpful and answered all my questions; she made traveling during these Covid times way less stressful. Thank you, Jennifer and Authentic Vacations for an amazing Christmas in Ireland!

"Ireland Anniversary"

Paige C.

Milwaukee, WI

This trip exceeded our expectations on every single level. Adina planned the absolute PERFECT Irish experience that enabled us to celebrate our third wedding anniversary better than we ever could have imagined. Every single step of the planning and booking experience was straight-forward, and we were always able to contact her if we had a question or concern. Michaela was also another agent we worked very closely with and her kindness is something I will always remember. I have already recommended AV to everyone I know, and we will absolutely be taking more trips through this agency in the future. This was the trip of our lives!!

"Experience family roots in Scotland"

Sue O.

Muskegon, MI

It took a while to get there after dealing with multiple delays because of Covid, but we finally made it to Scotland. Authentic Vacations worked with us so well for the initial plan and with all the necessary revisions. Our hearts were happy to see where my husband's grandmother was born. The accommodations were just right for us, and the experiences that they arranged were great and helped us to enjoy the beautiful country. Thank you!

"Beautiful Florida Vacation"

Marti L.

Florida

I had never used Authentic Vacation before. They were great my trip was exceptionally well planned.  Lonna was excellent to work with, she had all my answers and put us in beautiful hotels, she had also arranged all of our outings. Things went extremely smoothly. They are an exception to the rule.

"California Getaway/Wedding"

HOWARD N.

NY

After the cancelation of our Ireland trip, we were supposed to do just as everything closed down, I thought we would never get away. It took a while to get things figured out with this company but in the end, they came through and help me plan a trip to California. The hotels were perfect and everything else went as planned. Thanks, Lauren for helping us figure this all out.

"Worth The Wait - Birthday In Ireland"

Jennifer S.

IN

After two reschedules due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we were thrilled to finally be able to make it to Ireland. It exceeded our wildest expectations. From quaint seaside B&Bs to a night in a castle to lovely boutique hotel, we had a varied and beautiful experience. We loved the ability to modify our itinerary as we went so that we could discover things on our own time. But, the planned pre-booked events all worked out flawlessly. Couldn’t Recommend Michele more. She helped us select a location for a return Covid PCR test and was available for any questions.

"Fantastic 46th Anniversary In Ireland"

Ed & Marie C.

Florida

Finally, after postponing our trip twice due to COVID-19 we were finally on our way! Michelle, our Authentic Expert, was fantastic & everything was perfect! Our hotels were magnificent & everything was in order. We had absolutely no issues.


After our 3 nights stay at the luxurious Shelbourne, we set out for the following for a magnificent, unforgettable 12 days with Jimmy. We traveled 2058km through Galway, Connemara, Derry, Bushmills, Belfast, Trim & back to Dublin.


The highlights of the trip, besides the grand Jimmy, were the Wild Atlantic Coast, Connemara area, and the coast of Antrim which was absolutely incredible, some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen. The bonus was Jimmy’s audible historic narrations throughout our trip. We consider Jimmy a friend & will keep in touch.


Succinctly stated the only way to see Ireland is bypass. Having a personal driver was the only way to travel Ireland.


Ashford Castle was beyond our expeditions! So elegant and absolutely beautiful! The spa is a must. Walking the ground was stunning! I did the Hawk walk! I had my own Hawk, walked through the woods & let him go, a few minutes the Hawk flew back & landed on my arm. I cannot say enough about this experience. Afternoon Tea was certainly a must!


All the hotels recommended by Authentic Vacations were a very high standard.

"Hawaii Honeymoon & Birthday"

Kristy S.

7

Considering All, and COVID messing up a Scottish trip. Hawaii was lovely. Although the Hotel had troubles with their book keeping and no meals (continental breakfasts) were served due to Covid mandates. We did enjoy the place and getting a room on the water side with a lanai was key. Otherwise you would have a view of a parking lot or local road. Lots of wild roosters crowing around 3am. Very rustic and local.
