“Simply Lovely Vacation!”

Oct 31, 2018 by Jacqueline Murphy. Your Hometown: Parish, NY

The week with my granddaughter was wonderful! Anastasia did an outstanding job coming up with an itinerary to accommodate us in our short time in Ireland. The B and B's were excellent as well as the hotel! The rental car was perfect. Our self guided tour was better than we expected. I needed to contact Anastasia while in Ireland and she immediately responded to my question. Well Done!!!

“Outstanding Holiday to Ireland”

Oct 25, 2018 by Kevin Murphy. Your Hometown: Summerville, SC

Megan did an outstanding job of creating a custom 3-week vacation based on the information I provided to her. We basically toured the entire island in a clock-wise direction. All of the accommodations were outstanding! Although this was a self-drive trip (which certainly is a trip, driving in Ireland!) but Megan provided numerous points of interest for each of our 11 destinations. I felt the tour was reasonably priced and it went off without a hitch. Megan's attention to detail was fantastic. I would highly recommend Authentic Vacations and I would definitely use them again for any future trips to Ireland or the UK!

Oct 25, 2018 by Robin. Your Hometown: Moss Point, MS

My husband and I just returned from a 10-day trip to Ireland/Scotland for our 30th wedding anniversary. When I started looking at this trip, I came across this site and Jocoya Fox-Jones came across the chat. I told her what I was looking at and she planned the rest. Our trip was AMAZING and we couldn't have asked for a better person than Jocoya to have planned our trip. We've already decided that we will be using her again for our next adventure. She made our bucket list vacation a perfect one!!

Oct 16, 2018 by Sunny Holtzman. Your Hometown: Tel Aviv, Israel

This is the third trip I have booked with Jocoya Fox-Jones. Ireland, Iceland and now Japan. She has been consistently WONDERFUL, professional and has answered my every request quickly and so well. She is the BEST.

“9-Ireland Vacation”

Oct 9, 2018 by Maggie. Your Hometown: Missouri, USA

This vacation was surprise graduation gift for my two sisters who graduated from nursing school this Spring. We have all talked about traveling outside of the country, but we had never acted on these plans. I wanted to find a travel company that could help a novice traveler create a vacation that my sisters and I would remember. Thankfully, I happened across this site, and Jordan Elzerman! She took my travel requests and created the perfect itinerary for us. I don’t think the girls and I could’ve asked for a more perfect vacation! We’re already talking about “next time”. To any one who may feel reluctant to drive, I promise you that it’s not as scary as you think! We had at least one paid event every day that we were on vacation, and all the other time was free time that we could spend on whatever our hearts desired. It was the perfect combination of scheduled activities/free exploration.
