"Friends Getaway"

DARLENE

I have to say that Authentic Vacations made this trip very easy for us. From start to finish, I can honestly say they kept me informed and provided the best experience. This trip was scheduled two years ago but kept getting pushed back because of the pandemic. During the entire time, I had an agent always keeping in touch with me (I had a total of 4 different ones throughout the entire time but they were all very helpful and present). All accommodations were perfect for the three of us in the group and it was nice to wake up each day and not worry about grabbing a bite to eat before our travels began each day. Though we did experience an issue with one hotel, it is no reflection on the travel agency and the room and location was perfect. The voucher system made everything go smoothly as well. We would walk into a location and hand them the voucher and would receive nothing but praises from the staff for making it so easy for them. The added experiences that Authentic Vacations included with our trip were great as well and places we wanted to visit. And I can't say enough how easy they made our departure by adding the private driver to the airport. I will definitely be using Authentic Vacations for future travels and will be recommending them to my friends for future travels. Thank you again for a wonderful experience. And a big thanks to Ben, Michael, Naomi and Jorie for their assistance throughout the entire time prior to our departure. They were nothing but professional and very personable.

"Scotland Anniversary"

Danya

We booked our 10 Day Scotland trip pre-pandemic and have been so excited every sense. Jennifer made sure everything was perfect! From booking the cutest bed and breakfasts in Skye, Fort William, and Inverness, to a castle outside of Edinburgh. The experiences included in the trip were a highlight though. The Taste of the Highlands whisky and music night in Inverness was my absolute favorite thing to do. Jennifer was also incredibly communicative the day before our trip as some of our plans in Edinburgh changed due to HMQ’s laying in state. Would absolutely book through Authentic Vacations again!

"UK & Ireland 70th Birthday"

Emer

Our clients just finished their 14-day trip to the UK & Ireland and are raving about their experience. The driver guides have been phenomenal, the hotels amazing and the castle stay topped the bucket list for them. We use Authentic Vacation for most of our UK/Ireland trips and are never disappointed. Another great trip in the books - Thanks Michaela & Authentic - you make us look like Rock Stars !!

"Scotland Family Vacation"

David

Adina and her team were fabulous. We planned a trip to Scotland and had to postpone it a couple of times due to COVID. And then, the day before we were to depart for Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth II passed and her remains were of course brought to Edinburgh. I can't tell you how comforting it was to receive an email from Adina telling us that she was monitoring the situation and would help rearrange things if necessary.

Aside from having to cancel a couple of things, we were able to witness history and also have the vacation we always dreamed of. I could not recommend these folks more highly.

"Ireland & Scotland Family Vacation"

Kevin

Kailua

Our trip through Ireland and Scotland, with Jennifer's arrangements and guidance, was a tremendous success. All of the routes, transport, housing, and activities arranged were wonderful! Everyone who we encountered with the hotels and transport were very friendly and helpful. Special shout-out for the teams at Dublin Airport Transfer and Little Chauffeur for their very helpful and personable drivers as well as the Pembroke, Ballinalacken Castle and Bonham hotels as they went above and beyond in providing guidance and just all-around exceptionally friendly and service-oriented staff. This says a lot as the staff at all the hotels arranged were very good.


All of the activities were great, but the Guinness tour, Burren Smokehouse, and Scotch Whiskey Experience exceeded our expectations. The Giant's Causeway and Loch Ness - Highlands tours also worked out exceptionally well in providing us with a very efficient and fun overview of the landscape. The Black Cab tour in Belfast was especially interesting and enlightening.  Jennifer was very patient and helpful in considering our goals and requests with the result being the design and planning of a great tour.

It was a pleasure working with Adina and her team. They helped curate a private and customized tour for a family with many requirements. The attention to detail and suggestions were impeccable. I can't wait to work with Authentic Vacations again. Thank you for a wonderful experience and helping me look like a super star with my clients.

"Post Covid Ireland"

Carol

WI

We were beginning to think that this trip would never happen! Planned for March 2020 (we all know what happened) we went to Alaska instead. Authentic Vacations did a fabulous job of transitioning that one also. Finally made it to Ireland in September 2022. All fabulous. Thanks to Mandie for making some magic happen days before our departure. Will use them again for future trips.
