Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

CIE Tours provides fully escorted vacations of the British Isles that include accommodations, daily guided sightseeing, premium motorcoach transportation, admission fees and most meals. No optional "extras" are sold on CIE tours -- everything is included, such as dinner shows, medieval banquets, walking tours, open-top bus tours and more.

The company has launched three new family itineraries with departures in summer 2018: Irish Myths & Legends, Scottish Lochs & Castles and English Knights & Wizards. Our customers can save $500 off a family of four or more on these trips. Book by December 30.

The multigenerational, guided vacations incorporate interactive historical experiences, entertaining shows, family-friendly restaurants and fun activities. Tour Dublin by land and water in World War II amphibious vehicles, meet Britain's largest native land mammal at the Red Deer Centre in Scotland's Highlands or visit "The Making of Harry Potter" at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.

Two August departures of the Scotland family tour include tickets to the famed Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Held at the city's namesake castle, this perennially popular event showcases the bagpipers and drummers of Scottish regimental bands and performers from all over the world.

CIE also is offering Vacations To Go customers savings of up to 5% off a range of 2018 Britain tours when you book by December 15.



The United States Tour Operators Association has released its top travel destinations for 2018. The list comes from its latest member survey. The USTOA was founded in 1972, and its members collectively provide 8.6 million travelers annually with guided or hosted vacations.

Click any link below for a complete list of tours in these locales and applicable offers.

The USTOA named the following as countries that are particularly popular for international travel: Italy, France, Spain, Iceland, Australia and Japan.

Iceland also was named the top emerging or off-the-beaten path destination for 2018, followed by Colombia and Vietnam.

U.S. destinations that were highly ranked in the survey included California, Hawaii, Alaska, New York and Washington, DC.



We have many great tour itineraries for readers who are looking for adventure on their next vacation.

For some, adventure travel means going to exotic, far-flung destinations such as Antarctica or the Arctic, the safari destinations of Africa or the wildlife-rich Galapagos Islands. For others, it means engaging in some sort of recreational activity while on vacation, like hiking, biking, climbing or kayaking. These trips often emphasize interaction with the environment, people and cultures of the regions visited.

Two leading operators in adventure travel are G Adventures and Intrepid Travel. Both companies are committed to the principles of low-impact, sustainable travel and using locally owned lodgings and restaurants.
