"Couple's Vacation in Wales"

Kellie H.

Texas

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!

"Ireland Vacation"

Nicole A

What an amazing trip! Michelle was amazing at assisting in the planning. Our hotels were amazing. The recommended itinerary suited exactly what my family and I wanted to experience on our trip to Ireland. I would definitely utilize Authentic Vacations again!

"Driving through history"

Ed

Edmonton

We had an excellent trip. Absolutely no problems with bookings that Donna arranged. Driving Ireland and seeing it at your own pace lets you stop to admire ruins not normally on a tour. Only thing we would do differently is upgrade the car. As someone who enjoys driving I regret not having something a little more sporty!

"Christmas in Ireland"

William

We talked to Lainie about what we were looking for. She listened to our wishes offering suggestion and developed our plan. We got exactly what we were looking for. Made sure we were happy and answering a million questions. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you Lainie !

"An epic solo road trip!"

Anthea O.

Singapore

Just want to say a big thank you to Anna for all her help and patience in supporting my free and easy solo road trip across Ireland, chasing writers poets and thin places. The bed and breakfast choices were fantastic. I don't usually go through an agent to help with booking accommodation etc. but I had little to do so myself so am glad that I had Anna to take that load off me. I appreciate too that Anna was on WhatsApp with me and very responsive. I felt very supported. Thank you.

"Ireland birthday trip"

Stephanie S.

Minnesota

Josi was an immense help. From the beginning with her planning based on our wishes and prompt replies we felt very confident everything was covered. And it was! beautiful locations great suggestions for sites to see we could not have been more pleased with the whole Adventure. It was so nice to have all the reservations set and the car rental covered it made the whole experience stress free. I will definitely reach out to Josie for my next vacation.
