"Wonderful trip in Iceland"

Paula S.

We had a wonderful trip. The hotels were lovely with excellent restaurants and very attentive staff. The location in Reykjavik was perfect. Lots of shops and restaurants and the bus stop within a few blocks. 


We enjoyed all of the tours very much, especially the glacier hike and zodiac boat iceberg tour. 


Everywhere we went was filled with gorgeous scenery. It’s sort of like Scotland and Hawaii combined. 

"Amazing Ireland Vacation"

Christine W.

Colorado

I started planning my trip in May of 2019, planning to budget out and get a good idea of what a 2 week trip to Ireland would cost. Josi was incredible in helping me get a cost outlined early on, and when 2020 hit and things were changing by the week we were able to plan some things out further. Come the month before my vacation we had all the excursions and sightseeing outlined, everything set, and I was able to have an amazing experience in Ireland. I hope to go back again and see more of what I only got a sampling of.

"Anniversary in the Rockies"

Everything was great. The upgrade from a hotel room to a townhouse was excellent. I loved the Yellowstone tour and the Grand Teton tour. Spring Creek Ranch was the best place to stay.  Disappointed that two tours were cancelled.

"Family vacation in Ireland"

Peter D.

Texas

The six of us truly enjoyed our 12-day family vacation, and appreciated the planning effort and support we received from Authenticvacations. Everything went smoothly. Renting cars and driving on the left side of very narrow roads in Ireland may not be for everybody, but we had drivers with prior experience in our group and for us it worked out great. We are looking forward to planning more trips in the future. Thanks Michaela.

"Wedding and Honeymoon in Ireland"

We couldn’t have asked for a better planned adventure! Our wedding was breathtaking on the Cliffs of Moher and we had the best accommodations. I am forever grateful to Authentic Vacations and their wonderful travel agents Maggie and Lizzie!

"Love Ireland!"

Kathren A.

Ireland

Love Ireland I will be going back. Still a lot of places there to explore. Loved doing the little towns and B&B's. All my landladies where exceptional! Helpful. Grand breakfast every morning. Beautiful country. The Cliffs of Moher! Spent three hours there walked 6 miles. Took 75 pictures. The hardest part deciding which picture I want blown up!
