Insight always chooses the best available hotels in the area. Our tour director. Tom Hogan, was excellent. His knowledge of Ireland was comprehensive and interesting making our journey more enjoyable and fun. His diplomacy and sense of humour made the tour one of the best bus tours we have experienced. Thanks so very much Tom. We look forward to our next Insight holiday.Read more

Fantastic trip. Ticked a lot of the boxes I wanted to do. My biggest gripe with the tour, like every other tour I done, is never enough time to enjoy all the amazing places. Having said that, I would highly recommend this tour.Read more

I absolutely loved this trip!Read more
This tour was just over 3 weeks, and completely worth every dollar spent. The tour covered so many different places throughout the United Kingdom and the republic of Ireland. If you are looking for the best way to see as much if the UK as possible, then choose this tour.
The group on this tour was aged roughly between 50-86. It was a much older group. I myself am in my early 30's, and I chose this tour as I am not into the big drinking partying scene that can happen on tours. I chose this tour as I wanted to see as much as I could without the rukus that can happen with much younger tour groups. I was worried that I would not fit in, given that I was so much younger, but I was very much included in everything.
Insight Vacations had planned this well. Breakfast was included on every day of the tour, and most nights we had 3 course meals included also. (Drinks were extra). We always had stops for lunch and also mid morning and afternoon snacks if we chose.
Accommodation was 98% of the time, incredibly comfortable. The times when this was not the case, we were in some small town where we had the best of what was available.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, and made an effort to answer whatever questions were thrown at her. She spent a lot of her free time preparing for the upcoming days, ensuring we had the best opportunities and time for the activities available.
The coach was cleaned every night, and our driver managed to steer his coach through some of the smallest narrowest streets around. His precision driving was second to none. He was also on hand to answer Questions and share and partake in jovial conversation.
Overall, This tour was fantastic. I was a solo traveller and paid the extra for the single supplement. I would recommend this tour to anyone (Solo Adventurers or Couples and Groups) that mentioned wanting to see the UK, no matter how old they are.

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.Read more
Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.
Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.
I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.
Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.
Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.
Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.
Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.Read more

Located in London, and part of the sweeping family-owned Travel Corporation, Insight Vacations provides signature itineraries according to 7 specific trip styles.
What Makes Insight Vacations Stand Out?
Insight does not skimp -- hotels tend to be centrally located, even if more expensive, so that guests can experience a destination at night and have more free time at their disposal.
“Signature” experiences dot every itinerary: these may be interesting historic hotels, special activities (such as a private opera or orchestra performance),or authentic local restaurants. Most everything is included in the base rates.
Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Insight Vacations?
Insight’s typical customers are upscale English-speaking baby boomers in their 50s and 60s.
The kind of traveler who appreciates the finer things, loves the idea of a day out in the fresh air followed by a private dining experience with high caliber food and wine, will love the exceptional service that comes with an Insight Vacations tour.
If you enjoy meeting new people in a small group setting, the group travel experience with Insight is all about creating the intimacy and opportunity to meet new friends and make lasting connections. And they provide a few different ways to make this possible, from groups of around 32 people, to special interest trips.
However if you prefer the idea of traveling in a private setting, Insight will customize the travel experience to what you and your friend group or family group want to see.
Foodies will definitely enjoy traveling with Insight Vacations as well! They make food and dining a focal point of interest on their itineraries, in a way that really stands out.
Insight Vacations offers premium motor coach tours throughout Europe, North America, and increasingly, India.
Insight Vacations Travel Style
Insight seeks to fill a “premium” niche that falls above first class and a notch below luxury. Customer comfort on the road is a priority. If visions of cramped bus tours come to mind, note that Insight coaches have been stripped down to 40 seats, compared to 49 to 53 for normal tour buses. This allows for double the leg room, and a truly upscale coach travel experience.
Meanwhile, tour directors and local guides keep passengers entertained by delivering “insights” (in English) into local culture, history and politics.
They also take your dining experience into account. Insight offers several different ways to make food a highlight during your trip. These include fine dining options at innovative local restaurants, unique farm to table meals, cooking demonstrations, and even learning to make local dishes yourself.
Similar attention is paid to selecting the hotels and accommodations you will enjoy throughout your Insight Vacations tour. Lodgings are chosen for their central locations as well as significance to and representation of the destination.

If you’re looking for luxury beyond the silk sheet stereotype, consider Insight Vacations. Everything is planned out to the letter, groups are small, and you experience personalized service and passionate travel guides every step of the way.
