Southern Italy fuels our senses with its sights, scents, sounds, colors, tastes, and stories. On this joyous journey we’ll discover art and artifacts of the Roman Empire in Naples, explore the breathtaking cliffside villages of the Amalfi Coast, walk the haunting streets of Pompeii, revel in Capri’s opulent beauty, and get to know an ancient Greek village where temples to the goddesses still stand. All the while, we’re savoring exquisite regional delicacies and gaining unique insight into local cultures and centuries-old farming and fishing traditions of Mezzogiorno—the brilliance of Italian sunshine at midday.

Your local guide is with you every step of the way, introducing you to the sumptuous joys of Southern Italy. We travel in premium mini coaches that have comfortable seats, air conditioning, and large windows that frame stunning views. With far more flexibility than a standard-size coach, we take the scenic routes and back roads through the countryside, fishing villages, plus towns along the coast and up the mountains. Enjoy every moment of this regione kissed by the sun.

"Amazing Ireland Guided Vacation"

Lindsay S.

Jorie, I can't thank you enough for all your help, answering all my 50 million questions and also reassuring me that Ireland would be amazing. When switching my group from Egypt to a different destination, I was so flustered and not confident in where to go, but it was so easy to sell into the group. I have to say, Ireland was not necessarily at the top of my list, but oh my gosh, it is now! You and Authentic do an AMAZING job when it comes to Ireland!

My group literally cannot stop talking about our trip and they ALL loved it. The hotels were amazing. Aghadoe and Glenlo literally took the spotlight. Our guide Seamus was phenomenal and our driver Ian was so funny. We all had such a good time! Even with the other 2 couples that were on the trip. I really can't think of one flaw or hiccup.. everything was so seamless and perfect. I think it was some long days driving for some, but ultimately I think everyone knew that it was inevitable to see all of the beauty of Ireland. The bus was so nice and it was nice that it was roomy enough for us all to spread out. Again, I can't really think of one thing that I was 'ehh..'. It was all so amazing!

Again, I can't thank you enough.

"This Guided Vacation far exceeded my wildest dreams"

Lorraine M.

Dear Jen, thank you for all your assistance and patience with our Ireland vacation. This is my lifetime dream. Elegant and fabulous tour. The best guide and bus driver. Small, lovely. This trip far exceeds my wildest dreams. Seamus is witty, well informed and an excellent guide.

"Trip to London and Scotland"

Kathie S.


My clients LOVED their trip to London and Scotland. They really enjoyed the hotels that Authentic Vacations recommended, especially the Rembrandt. Thank you!

"The entire Ireland trip was a dream"

Jennifer B.

Jackson, NJ

Ellie booked our dream vacation for a total of 15 days to Ireland. We did a self-driving tour with a car rental starting and ending in Dublin. We traveled the entire coastline staying 1 or 2 nights at each hotel. The places arranged for us got better and better each night, ending with our last night in a castle built in 1101. The entire trip was a dream. All the recommendations made to us by Ellie were spot on! I can not wait to work with her again. We plan on returning in a couple years with our adult children. I would definitely use Authentic Vacations again for any trip I plan on taking overseas.

"Great trip in Ireland & Scotland"


Ireland/Scotland trip was a great trip planned with our group and Jorie. We thoroughly enjoyed each city we visited in both countries. All our hotels were very nice but as older adults, I would advise to pack light which is hard to do if your visit is extended but we had to climb stairs in several places. My favorite thing in both countries are the people. Everyone was so friendly and inviting at hotels, restaurants and local sites. We felt completely safe and comfortable. I would agree with other travelers that driving is stressful for both driver and passengers especially in Ireland where the roads are extremely narrow with rock walls on each side. Next trip will include staying in certain cities with tours out. JerPoint Park in Ireland was a favorite of our group of 4. Authentic Vacations plans, reservations and communications were first rate.

"Wonderful Scottish and Irish adventure"


South Carolina

Lauren, thank you for putting together a wonderful Scottish and Irish adventure. In many unexpected ways it indeed was an adventure that we will remember forever. So sincere thanks. Despite a glitch in St Andrews your team's recovery actually made St Andrews the highpoint of our trip. Staying at Rusacks overlooking the first tee and eighteenth green of the old course was awesome. All the Hotels were first rate. Experiences - awesome The Clontarf Castle is an awesome way to the trip. Well done y'all.  Big city stays - We all felt like we could have used an extra day in the larger cities. They all had a story to tell, and we just had enough time to scratch the surface. Self-drive - while less expensive alternative, the person doing the driving misses out on a lot in transit, while the passenger's white knuckle thru the driver's learning process. Also, the roads in Scotland and Ireland are no joke.  Would recommend it is worth it to hire a private chauffer driver or go Small Guided for sure.

"Scotland Birthday Trip"



Adina, I'm following up on my client's train/whiskey tour/ birthday trip to Scotland in October. They had a wonderful time! The whiskey tour day was their favorite, made extra special by their driver Alec who was a superstar. My client's boyfriend is a real train enthusiast. They enjoyed all the train trips, and Nick was like a child on the Jacobite train. Thanks so much for your help with this trip. You clearly know Scotland and planned a very nice route with some unique requirements. I greatly appreciate your expertise and attentive service. I look forward to working with you again in the future. An early Happy Holidays!

"Memorable Trip in Italy"
