Insight Vacations is a reputable company with a great formula for success. This is our fifth trip with them. We know what to expect and we are always very pleased with our trips.

Insight Vacations consistently provides excellent tours, services, drivers and tour directors.

This is my 5th Insight Tour in 5 years...they are great at what they do; their staff, the tour bus and the great optional excursions. I am ready to book my tour for next year.

Insight is a wonderful company and offered an amazing experience traveling throughout Europe. We would highly recommend it!

Toured with Insight before and have never been disappointed! Understand, you are on the go and walk a lot. But, that is what we wanted and paid for!

This was a perfect vacation!! We loved being on a boat and having one room to return to each night no packing and unpacking or hauling belongings from place to place. We were surprised how roomy and very comfortable our room on board was. Even the bathroom gave us plenty of room to move around in. And the boat itself was spacious, clean, and laid out with lots of thought put into the needs of guests. The staff onboard was phenomenal. They went above and beyond, always smiling, helpful, and spoiling us. Everything was clean, the food excellent and plentiful, and planned stops included keeping passengers safe at all times. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the Adriatic! Thank you Affordable Tours.

I have been on 4 trips with Insight and will continue to use them. They are a wonderful company

This was our 2nd tour with Insight Vacations and it was a wonderful experience. Michael, our tour director, was excellent!

The Tour Director and Driver were excellent! Very enjoyable.

Insight took care of everything! Great hotels and excursions!

Insight not only provides an educational and cultural experience, but they also lessen the stress that can come with traveling as they provide airport pick ups and drop offs, and just tell us when to have our luggage outside our hotel door. We would definitely travel with Insight again.

Got my money's worth! This was a fabulous trip! American the Beautiful has a deeper meaning after seeing unimaginable beauty every mile of the way. The Tour Guide and Wellness Coordinator were fabulous, and you just can't find a better bus driver. The extra legroom available on Insight Tours makes all the difference when you are on a bus for 10 glorious days.

This trip was one of my best. The itinerary was just right. Everything went to perfection

This was my third trip with Insight Tours. It was a very good tour. I chose Insight because of their itinerary for this particular tour.

The best of the trip, definitely the staff! Thanks!
