"Ireland & Scotland Mother Daughter Adventure"

Julie O.

I had the best experience working with Authentic Vacations! The staff is caring and helpful throughout the entire process. I will use them again and highly recommend them.

"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.

"Winter vacation in Jackson"

Lucy C.


I am a travel advisor and I worked with Authentic Vacations for a winter vacation in Jackson WY for my clients. In their own words, my clients said that this vacation may be the best ever! They shared that the accommodations were perfect and tours had knowledgeable and engaged guides. It was great working with my Destination Expert at Authentic Vacations - he was professional, responsive and patient and he helped me to provide an exceptional experience for my clients.

"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!
