Take a fabulous journey on one of our most adventurous England tours! This 9-Night Marmalade, Gin and Beer Adventure takes you from London to Liverpool and through multiple stunning national parks.

Kicking off your tour, a classic black cab transfers you to your accommodation, centrally-located in vibrant London, with Hyde Park nearby. Enjoy the park’s soothing green spaces and waterside dining options. On Day Two, a unique Afternoon Tea Bus Tour facilitates effortless sightseeing as you savor delicious morsels atop an iconic red bus.

A private chauffeur collects you on Day Three, providing peak luxury transportation to the Peak District. Entrance to the Queen’s residence, magnificent Windsor Castle, is included along the way. Spend two nights in the Peak District National Park, enjoying its Tolkeinesque landscape divide between the Dark Peak and the White Peak. You’ll also forage for wild botanicals and make your own gin!

On Day Five you’ll be chauffeured to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with a myriad of sightseeing opportunities along the way. Experience a unique Pub Safari on Day Six, visiting three traditional pubs in the Dales and delighting in the local drinks and produce.

Your chauffeur takes you to the mesmerizing Lake District on Day Seven. Stop en route to see Hill Top, Beatrix Potter’s 17th-century farmhouse, and Dove Cottage, home to poet William Wordsworth for over eight years. Day Eight is a sweet one with a scenic lake cruise and guided walk, a private tour of Dalemain Mansion with a delicious lunch, all rounded out with a marmalade tasting.

Your adventure ends in Liverpool - see the Liverpool Cathedral, take an immersive journey at The Beatles Story and enjoy an overnight here before bidding England farewell.

"I love working with Authentic Vacations"

Dorothy J.


Lauren has done an amazing job taking care of my honeymoon clients and providing great customer service. I especially love how easy their itinerary is to read and navigate. Thanks Lauren.

"Trip to Big Sky"

Shelly G.


This trip was a dream! Amanda A helped us book a trip to Big Sky, MT and it was the most amazing vacation ever. The whole trip was smooth sailing and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience. The hotels were sooo nice, all of the activities she planned out were so fun. I will never book a trip another way, Authentic Vacations is the ONLY way to go! Already looking forward to booking my next trip!

"I’m just blown away by the quality of the trips"

Kristina A.


I’ve been looking for a company like Authentic Vacations for a long time. When my clients’ Hawaii honeymoon was cancelled, Lauren designed an amazing trip to Oregon for them and they were thrilled! She was super responsive and helpful, the itinerary planning was top notch, and my clients had an amazing time. The attention to detail on their customized itinerary blew me away. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!!

"Family vacation"

Kristy M.


Amanda A. is the best travel agent I have ever worked with! She is friendly, nice and really cares about her clients. I will always recommend her to my family and friends. The places we stayed and activities she recommended were all terrific. We are looking forward to planning our Ireland/Scotland vacation with Amanda's help for next September. We love her!

"Couple's Vacation in Wales"

Kellie H.


We have just booked our 3rd trip with Lauren to Wales next summer and we expect that as usual it will be amazing. Lauren has previously sent my husband and I to Ireland and Scotland and we know that with her everything will go absolutely perfect. She really goes above and beyond to tailor our trips to our personalities and she knows what we like to do. Every hotel or B&B we've stayed in have been perfect. We have never worried about logistics etc... It is so wonderful to go on a trip and know that when you get there absolutely everything is taken care of and all there is left to do is enjoy! We will continue to call upon Lauren for future vacations and cannot wait for our next adventure!

"Awesome Yellowstone Vacation"

Duane K.

Thank you, Josi! What a wonderful trip it was. I cannot tell you how happy we are you made dinner reservations. We ate at all the best spots, but we watched them turn away customer after customer because they were over booked. Great weather! It snowed a bit the day we arrived, and was in the 70’s/80’s and sunny the rest of the time. Just beautiful. Did you order the weather too? Spring Creek was great. The Yellowstone tour was awesome (Bison, Deer, Antelope, Bear, Elk, Moose). Paddleboard company was great. Also, the Hotel in Salt Lake is 5 star. I’ve stayed in the nicest hotels in New York, Chicago, LA and this one is a classic. My appreciation to you!

"Very helpful thru all this Virus interruption"

Helen V.


"What can we do to improve your experience with Authentic Vacations?" (Survey)

I have only used Authentic Vacations recently, having just found them in my search for a private experience with a small group to Ireland. They have been very helpful thru all this Virus interruption. Hoping to use them more in the future.

"Amanda A. is Amazing!"

I have worked with Amanda for many of my client's trips. She is always so detailed, helpful, and truly knowledgeable. I can tell her the very custom details of a client's dream trip, and she is always able to make it come to life and completely blow my clients away! She is so professional and such a friendly agent. I will continue to turn to her for ALL of my United Kingdom bookings!
