"Fantastic trip In Ireland"

Scott F.

Long Island, NY

Our trip started in Dublin and we went north to Belfast and went “counter clockwise“ to the west coast and back to Dublin. Fantastic trip.


Here is why you book your trip through Authentic Vacations; unforeseen problems. All of the accommodations were great—Brooks Hotel in Dublin, Europa in Belfast (great hotel), Manor House, Clontarf Castle, Lough Eske. One hotel was a disaster. Within one hour of contacting Michelle she changed our accommodation to The Bushmills Inn. That is the value that Authentic Vacations provides.

"We had a wonderful time In Scotland"

Richard C.

Wilmington, DE

We started in 2019 planning a May, 2020 vacation to Scotland. Then Covid hit and we ultimately had to postpone our trip 3 times until we finally were able to go in September, 2021. We were very impressed with the way that Authentic Vacations (AV) worked with us to make modifications over that 2 year period. We worked with AV to modify the basic itinerary as we learned more about the Covid restrictions and changed our plans to adapt to these restrictions. The people we worked with at AV were terrific and were always quite helpful with good recommendations. We even worked with AV to plan an alternate itinerary to Ireland when we thought that Scotland was not going to open up for visitors in a timely manner. Ultimately, we were able to go to Scotland and we had a wonderful time.


We couldn't be more pleased with how adaptable AV was in coping with the ever-changing environment caused by Covid rules and restrictions as well as their own staffing challenges during the pandemic. We highly recommend Authentic Vacations and will be using them for our future travel planning.

"Anniversary In Florida Keys"

Timothy T.

Florida Keys

We received all we wanted on this trip, sun, water, excellent hotels, and tours! Naomi did an excellent job planning our stays at resorts that let us relax and take in the local tours and places to see. Everything was arranged and we had no issues when arriving at a hotel or a tour. Naomi also recommended some awesome tours aboard the African Queen (Key Largo) and a sunset sail cruise (Key West) on the Appledore Star!


We look forward to using Authentic Vacations to make our Ireland trip just as great!

"Beautiful Ireland Vacation"

Sandra P.

Alabama

Ireland is so beautiful. Loved the Rock of Cashel, the Viking Triangle, Kilkenny Castle, and green, green, green. The only thing... if you are not an exceptional driver, be prepared to take a nerve pill! The roads are way narrow and driving on the left...well, you can see the difficulty.


It was worth it though. Such lovely buildings and scenery.


Amazing trip.

"Family Vacation to Ireland"

Ronald K.

Il

It was very satisfactory. This trip was delayed twice over 18 months because of Covid. They kept the communication lines open and made the overly complicated process simple.

"Definitely worth the wait!"

Helen P

Texas

I started planning this Ireland trip in late 2018. It’s been rescheduled several times due to covid. Josi was the best travel agent I could ask for through the whole process. She was so patient and answered all of my questions the best she could. I finally made the trip this month and it was better and more beautiful than I could have ever hoped for. I did the pub tour and plan to go again some day. Definitely worth the wait!

"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.
