Britain unbuttoned! Unexpected experiences are unveiled and juxtaposed with iconic sights on one of our most exciting England tours. Beautiful 4-star accommodations and a full breakfast each morning is included.

Kick off your adventure in style with two nights in vibrant London. Enjoy a panoramic tour of London’s remarkable landmarks from an open-top bus—at night. You’ll have ample time to explore at leisure, perhaps touring the Tower of London or ambling down Oxford Street, the busiest shopping street in Europe, with origins dating back to Roman times.

On Day Three, collect your rental car and head for royalty at Windsor Castle where you’ll be treated to a tour. Gorgeous gardens are intrinsic to England, so stop by KEW Gardens to see elements illustrating significant periods in garden art from centuries past. You’ll spend three nights close to Bristol, an excellent base for visiting the awesome Aerospace Museum, home of the supersonic Concorde, and stepping aboard the mighty SS Great Britain. A unique tour of a family-owned, artisan cheesemaking facility will make you taste buds tingle. A thirst-quenching visit to Wadworth Brewery could be in order.

On Day Five, see the rickety lanes of Lacock, used as a filming location for Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, and Pride and Prejudice. Entrance to the Roman Baths awaits in the World Heritage city of Bath, where the cosmopolitan coalesces with ancient history. Your last full day in England commences with entrance into mystical Stonehenge, with origins dating back nearly 5,000 years. Don’t miss Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey) and the magnificent cathedral in Salisbury. The following morning it’s time to depart, but not without England securing a place in your heart.

"Great Experience"

Anne

East Leroy

Amanda did an excellent job booking our driving tour. She made arrangements for everything we knew we wanted to see and had suggestions for other great places as well. Accommodations were great. The one slight snag was handled efficiently and completely to our satisfaction. I recommend Authentic Ireland and Amanda. We would certainly use them again.

I cannot express more how amazing the customer service has been with this company. Jocoya has truly gone above and beyond for us. We had a few hiccups in our travel arrangements and with a quick turnaround, she did her absolute best to accommodate us. I would be thrilled to use this company again in the future.


Thank you Jocoya! You are a star!

"Wonderful Ireland Vacation"

Jackie

This specially designed package designed for myself and my granddaughter by Anastasia was perfect! Everything from the rental car to the B & B's and hotel was splendid! The food at our lodging areas was superb!! I needed to contact our customer representative, Anastasia, while we were in Ireland. She responded quickly and it was on the weekend! You cannot ask for better service than that, in my opinion!!! I will definitely book with this company again!!!

"Great way to book your trip"

Joanne

I was very happy with the whole experience. The hotels booked, recommended destinations and sights to see and the rental car all exceeded expectations. It was very easy to book the trip with this company. The consultant I worked with was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this company.

"Perfect Honeymoon"

Joel

This company gave us the perfect honeymoon that we've been dreaming of. Everything was smooth from the B&B's to the experiences that they've pre-booked, it's as if everything was just waiting for us to come. Can't recommend them enough!

Their customer service was top notch, very personal and will not leave you hanging. They support each other and really want you to get the best experience.

"Beyond our expectations"

Beth

My traveling companions and I were over the moon with excitement upon going to Ireland!!! Michaela, our travel agent, was tremendous in planning the trip according to our hopes and dreams and budget. Our lodging in Enis, County Clare, was a beyond our expectations, so lovely, comfortable and cozy. It was so nice to come home too after our day travels. Ireland is beautiful and stole my heart.

"AMAZING TRIP"

Janna

Our first trip to Ireland could not have been more beautiful or amazing. Alaina went above and beyond to make our trip wonderful for us on very short notice. She assisted with unexpected issues on the fly and found us places with air conditioning, which is not easy. Our 7 night vacation consisted of driving from Dublin and seeing the southern half of the Republic. Each place Alaina arranged for us to stay and each customized adventure was wonderful. We throughly enjoyed the people, culture and beauty. We celebrated our 28th Anniversary with our “dream” vacation. We look forward to our next vacation to see Northern Ireland!

"Authentic trip"

Patty

Our 30th anniversary trip to Ireland was simply wonderful! Jocoya did an awesome job picking all the wonderful places, B&Bs, etc. We felt it truly was an “authentic” Ireland trip. Thank you so much! I will definitely recommend you guys again and again.
