Britain-focused tour company CIE Tours International announced it has opened a London office. The new location is the company’s third, joining its Dublin-based office in Ireland and its headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey.
CIE Tours has placed its new office near Blackfriars Underground Station in the heart of London. The location will serve as the company’s new European base and will ensure executives will be on hand to help travelers with its British tours. The company has tasked its new London team with building partnerships with regional entities and developing new European vacation packages.
“Demand for authentic, meaningful travel experiences throughout the U.K. continues to grow, and London – as the beating heart of Britain – was a natural choice for our newest office,” said the company’s CEO, Elizabeth Crabill. “The team in place brings incredible expertise to the business and will be focused on supporting our British guides and guests, as well as sourcing new products and opportunities.
The announcement of the new office follows the CIE Tours’ recent decision to expand into new markets, beginning with Iceland and Italy. New itineraries for these locations will begin next year.
CIE Tours is an 86-year-old New Jersey-based tour operator that specializes in guided vacations to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. The company offers a variety of travel options, including coach tours, small group travel and highly curated private itineraries.
