There is also time to explore the atmospheric Old City, a maze of narrow streets lined with palaces, sprawling over the island of Ortygia.

We are very satisfied with our tour with Insight Vacations. We thought it was a great tour and we will have no reservations about booking a tour with Insight in the future. We were happy with the attractions we saw, the accommodations were very nice, and the meals were good. The buses were advertised as having extra legroom and they were comfortable.
I just went on the Vienna, Prague and Budapest tour and it was amazing. There were a lot of sights to see with our expert local guide as well as ample downtime to shop at the Christmas markets and have a coffee while resting. Affordable Tours made my experience stress free, educational, relaxing and exciting. We stayed at 4-5 star hotels with amazing continental breakfasts, where the staff was polite and English-speaking. The bus driver was polite, safe and punctual. My experience with Affordable Tours was phenomenal! Thank you.
Had a wonderful time. Hotels were great and our Insight tour guide/director was awesome.
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, all the hotels were high standard & very clean, Our tour guide was nice & humerous, bus driver was an expert & safe, bus ride was pleasant & comfortable, food was exceptionally good, places visited were beyond imagination & very impressive, would love to go back again one day.
The Easy Pace Tour of Budapest, Vienna, and Prague was amazing with Insight Vacations. It was beyond my expectations. Each city is a fairytale in its own right. The tour director, driver, and local guides are the best. I learned so much from them which made the trip even more memorable.
Wonderful trip to the Western National Parks. Beautiful scenery, unbelievable lodging and meals inside the various national parks, and a fun and knowledgeable Tour Director!
First class service from Insight tours!!!!
Well organized and hotels were always very nice. Tour director was excellent in her knowledge, and her attention to the individuals in the group. Will definitely book future tours with this company.
The Insight tour to Morocco was exactly as I hoped for and expected. One thing about escorted tours that I still don't like is the amount of dinners at hotel buffets. The dinners in restaurants were by far the better part of the trip. I understand getting 40 people in a restaurant is difficult, but it would still be my preference.
excellent guide, driver, and small enjoyable group of internationals.
This was our 6th tour with Insight...and as usual we loved it!! Over half of the other people on our tour had been with Insight Vacations before. We all love them !!!
Can't say enough about insight vacations as I have done 7 of them with this last Croatia trip. They do an amazing job.
Everything was well planned, and we experienced no problems at all. The itinerary was great, and we especially enjoyed the extra time in Norway.
Every thing was fine . Could use little more time for lunch but that's not a big deal
This is a "Must See" bucket list tour. The amazing sites and views were incredible. The accommodations, fantastic. Food was amazing. I would take this tour again!!
