excellent guide, driver, and small enjoyable group of internationals.

By Kay W on Aug 27, 2016

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 !!!

By Maria S on Aug 27, 2016

Can't say enough about insight vacations as I have done 7 of them with this last Croatia trip. They do an amazing job.

By Sandra M on Jul 15, 2016

Everything was well planned, and we experienced no problems at all. The itinerary was great, and we especially enjoyed the extra time in Norway.

By Sukhjender G on Jul 10, 2016

Every thing was fine . Could use little more time for lunch but that's not a big deal

By Bobby H on Jul 01, 2016

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!!

By Mohinder S on Jun 26, 2016

The tour director was very knowgeable and organised. Handled emergencies well. Accomodations were very good. One negative: this trip to Morocco was during Ramadan when the entire country is closed during day time. Thus unable to shop or see the ambience of famous attractions. Recomend to not include Morocco during Ramadan.

By Anne V on Jun 20, 2016

This was our first tour with Insight, previously we toured with Trafalger. Both tours were enjoyable, but other than having more leg room on the Insight Coach, I think the Trafalger tour provided more value for the cost. Our tour director on the Trafalger tour was a native of the country we visited, not so with the Insight tour director and I think that made a difference as well.

By Brenda K on Jun 04, 2016

I have taken several tours with Insight Vacations and have been extremely happy with them. They are prompt, attentive and pay close attention to details. They make every attempt to make sure each person on the tour is having a great time.

By Teresa H on Jun 04, 2016

The accommodations exceeded my expectations. The majority of the accommodations were located center city city were all the action is. It was easy to walk to many attractions and stores.

By Mary P on Jun 03, 2016

My trip was very exciting and enjoyable.

By Ronnette B on May 28, 2016

Overall, my expectations for this trip were met.

By Lee D on May 28, 2016

Some of the hotels were not 5-star.

By Susan R on May 13, 2016

The Painted Ladies in San Francisco are not accessible by the tour coach, it says you see them but only go near the street. The same is true for the crooked street also in San Francisco and the Welcome light dinner when you arrive is light appetizers not a dinner.

By Barbara M on May 13, 2016

Everything about this trip was superbly handled, professional in every aspect and done with a most pleasant and courteous staff!
