Extremely pleased with our Insight vacations tour! The Tour DIrector was fabulous and the Driver excellent as well. All hotel locations were in the center of town which was really nice. Some of the hotel bathrooms were quite small but ok. The bus was very roomy with lots of legroom. We only had 34 people on our tour which was great. All very nice travellers and respectful of each other.
