Budget

Tours through the vibrant cultures and cuisines of Europe are populated regularly by families and travelers, and for good reason — they’re a great way to experience world-famous sites, sounds and tastes without all the work of planning and organizing yourself.

 

In an effort to make it even easier to experience, for a limited time, CIE Tours International is offering a two-for-one deal for couples and families seeking European flare on a budget. Jumping on the New Year’s resolution bandwagon of more travel and experiences with the family, CIE Tours is promoting a free flight for travelers traveling in twos on specific seven-day or more tours. Book by Jan. 31, and explore Britain, Iceland, Italy, Wales, Scotland and Ireland on trips departing April 1–Oct. 31, 2019 — just use the code 2FOR119.

 

While the offer is limited, the tours are not. Read more about what each excursion includes and plan your 2019 getaway.

 

Taste of Iceland

While one day shy of being included in the offer, Taste of Iceland is a great offer you can book any time. The six-day, five-night trip explores Iceland’s hidden gems and must-see highlights, from waterfalls and geysers to the world-famous Skaftafell National Park and Golden Circle. Fill up with local eatery experiences, including lunch at Fridheimar Tomato Farm and dinner at Blue Lagoon. Prices begin at $2,399 per person.

Taste of Italy

A little longer and therefore qualifying for the two-for-one airfare discount, Taste of Italy is a must for art history lovers and foodies alike. Explore Italy’s rich history through masterpieces in Florence, gondola rides in Venice, ancient sites in Rome and fine dining and architecture literally everywhere you go. Prices begin at $1,899 per person, but don’t forget the code to book by Jan. 31 for the free flight.

 

Irish Spirit

Focusing more on the lore and famous locales of Ireland, Irish Spirit is a tour for John Wayne-loving, whiskey-drinking music fans. The eight-day, seven-night trip showcases filming sites from The Quiet Man and tours Jameson Distillers and traditional Irish pubs. Explore the Cliffs of Moher and Kilkenny Castle with the family and enjoy full breakfasts and dinners along the way. Prices begin at $1,799 per person. 

 

Irish Foodie Tour

Another great way to start the New Year? Booking a foodie tour of the Emerald Isle. Foodie families enjoy tea tours of Dublin, whiskey and chocolate tastings and even seaweed foraging in this unique foodie exploration through Ireland, beginning at $1,998 per person.

 

Taste of Wales

Over nine days and eight nights, guests enjoy hearty cuisine and fun local pubs along the Taste of Wales tour. Enjoy the incredible culture and breathtaking landscapes of the countryside with castle tours, Stonehenge and cathedrals. Prices begin at $2,549 per person and include a visit to Cardiff and a full exploration of the country — literally top to bottom.

 

Scottish Isles & Glens

One of the longest trips and a great excuse to use the offer code, Scottish Isles & Glens is an incredible escape. Travel for 12 days and 11 nights across the Highlands of Scotland. See the famed Isle of Sky and Orkney Islands with a few foodie stops along the way. The tour begins at $3,299 per person and makes great use of the two-for-one offer.
