Whether you’re marking off vacation bucket list sights or showing off a city you love to new explorers, Insight Vacations creates the difference between simply seeing the sights and truly experiencing them.
Packed with action, completely carefree
Bring your walking shoes to Egypt, where carefully crafted itineraries include all the highlights while local guides add thoughtful perspectives. Perhaps you’ll reflect upon the more than 3000-year-old tombs in the Valley of the Kings, lose yourself in Karnak’s Hypostyle Hall or indulge in the custom of afternoon tea. Despite the busy pace, the mood is decidedly relaxed. That’s because all the details are handled by Fox World Travel in partnership with Insight Vacation’s highly trained travel directors, who are more akin to traveling concierges. They’re ready to help with any request — even taking that iconic shot of you next to the Great Pyramids of Giza.
Camaraderie comes easily
A laid-back tone does more than just make you comfortable; it creates an atmosphere that fosters friendship. Fellow travelers become true companions as you build bonds over visiting ruined Blarney Castle and kissing the famous Stone of Eloquence. It also helps groups are smaller than traditional escorted vacations — no more than 40 guests — and appeal to an international crowd. Whether you’re traveling solo or as a couple, it’s easy to share special moments with others as you gaze in awe at the lines of the old city walls and architectural splendor of Vienna.
Instead of simply ordering a glass of wine, learn from a local expert about the nuances of vino rosso and how to pair it with Florentine cuisine. Such engaging travel experiences resonate on a deeper level. Passionate guides attuned to the nuances of the culture are able to lead you through the narrow alleyways of Capri to those hidden vistas and trendy cafés that only residents know about. Thanks to longstanding insider connections, you can even gain special entrance to the Vatican Museums, skipping the lines to go behind the scenes at the Bramante Staircase — normally off-limits to the public.
Little extras, big differences
Beyond special access to essential sights, you’ll find thoughtful details throughout your journey. Stay connected with complimentary Wi-Fi in your luxury motor coach, where business-class seats boast up to twice the legroom as a standard touring coach. Look up and you may discover your travel director is giving out handcrafted Swiss chocolates she picked up at a local stop. Centrally positioned hotels put you in the heart of the action, while specially curated dine-around evenings showcase the most laudable local restaurants. Little touches make a big difference when you’re traveling abroad, and you’ll have them all when you and your Fox travel agent create your trip with Insight Vacations.
