Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Insight Vacations Tours

Insight Vacations has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Insight Vacations and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Insight Vacations is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Insight Vacations will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Insight Vacations have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Insight Vacations was a big disappointment in many ways. We have done many tours with many companies so we know that there are ups and downs in any tour especially long tours like this one. Let's face it we all can book hotels, transfers, city tours, etc. over the internet so what we utilize a tour company for is it's ability to have the best tour guides and to get you transferred and through the formalities of leaving one country and entering another. Insight missed the mark on both of these things: 1) We had four tour guides on this trip - two, Rafi in Israel and Muhammad in Egypt were outstanding (top 5 in any tour we have ever taken) - the other two (one in Jordan and the other for Abu Simbel) were terrible (in the worse 5 in any tour we have taken) - the Jordan guide seemed burned out and the Abu Simbel guide drank coffee with another guide at the distant exit to the tour while we toured on our own. 2) The transfer between countries (Israel and Jordan) and within Egypt (Aswan to Abu Simbel) were disjointed, unprofessionally handled and less than we paid for. By way of example to transfer from Israel to Jordan, we were put into a cab in Jerusalem with a non- English speaking driver and sent to the border. At the border the cabbie stopped the car, put our luggage on the street and left. He left so fast that we forgot our camera in the back of his car as we hurried to figure our what he was doing with our luggage, where we were to go from there, etc. We then proceeded to ask strangers how to accomplish leaving Israel and getting into Jordan, I have been in well over 100 countries and this was the least professional approach to a border transfer I ever encountered (and I have been through the many countries of the Silk Road and Iran). In the process of the transfer one of our travelers was lost and we all waited over an hour until she figured out on her own her mistake and made her way to the Jordanian border control - the Jordanian Guide was no help and didn\'t even have time/credits on his cell phone to make a call to help. 

I enjoyed very much the trip. However, I do feel that should be more information should be given about the last day of the trip. This happen to us twice. It seems to me that we did not have the full time we expected at the end of the trip. it seems that it was short one day, for the time we had to leave. Also I would like to see that the tips for the luggage and all tips to the hotel help etc is reduced from the price and let us know how much to give because I feel uncomfortable not given a tip because is already taking care & end up given them something else ourselves.
