“WOW!!! Another great Insight! ”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2018 5 Helpful Votes

There were many highlights of this well-structured Insight tour. Our tour guide (Howie Geib) both inspired and amazed us with his knowledge of the history and geography of our track around North America. His boundless energy was infectious, and his eagerness to go the extra mile to keep us safe and incident free was amazing. We are happy to highly recommend this tour of Eastern Canada and the USA (and Howie).

“A taste of north east Americas”
- QLD, Australia May 2016 2 Helpful Votes

Everything was handled with perfect smoothness, from the initial booking with Global Journeys, and the actual organization by Insight , to the wonderful care and entertainment given by our tour director and driver. It was all a class act. Our 16 day tour gave a taste of this large area and everywhere we went I want to go back to. Our time was organized well though, and we did see a lot. A lovely bunch of fellow passengers was the cherry on top.
