Exploring Europe, Your Way

Europe is on your mind, but how will your vision play out in real life? Discover three completely different perspectives with CIE Tours’ guided vacations, and we’ll help you find the essence of your Europe.

Italy: A Classic Love Affair

For over 87 years, CIE Tours has established itself as a leader in travels to Great Britain and Ireland. Now you can experience that same sense of hospitality on an escorted journey through Italy. All of the classics are within easy reach — from meeting gondoliers to marveling at the Colosseum and the Uffizi Gallery’s art-filled halls. In between the highlights are engaging stories from your expert guides, an exclusive visit to the fascinating town of Orvieto and plenty of free time to seek out the pastimes that appeal to you. Our advice: Pop into Harry’s Bar and order a peach-kissed bellini for a classic Venetian experience.

Ireland: A Culinary Journey

After nearly nine decades together, CIE Tours and Ireland are practically inseparable. Led by jovial guides who know every detail of this fabled land, you’ll get to know Ireland’s most iconic sights as if you were a local. Go even deeper into the culture on a guided culinary tour to meet the artisans and taste Ireland’s signature cuisine. An excursion to a Dublin whiskey distillery is followed by a cooking class; the goat cheeses you sample while exploring a Cork farm will later appear on your dinner plate; and a meal of locally foraged ingredients is as astonishing as the views of the Cliffs of Moher.

Iceland: Nature at Its Finest

As if crossing over to Ireland wasn’t enough, imagine leading up to the adventure with three days in Iceland in one seamless journey. Photos can’t capture how epic the land of fire and ice really is, but your guided tour through the Golden Circle will bring it all to life. Dedicate this stopover to enjoying the dramatic beauty of Gullfoss Waterfall and the mighty Strokkur Geysir, along with free time to appreciate colorful Reykjavík. A tip: Travel between September and April for a chance to see the brilliant Northern Lights dancing above.

Finding the right European adventure begins with you, and we’ll work with CIE Tours to bring all the details together. From fully inclusive coach tours to curated independent excursions, you’ll have expert guidance from beginning to end.
