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.

Booking With Global Journeys
Unfortunately the tour was not like the previous ones we have done due to our tour guide who did not make this holiday as enjoyable as it should of been. Roger I felt lacked personality and communication skills and his time management was not up to scratch. The accommodation we had fell short of expectation. This is was also the view of a lot of the other passengers on the trip. I am not sure if we would use Insight Vacations again.

“First class accommodation and tour highlights”
Value
Guide
Accommodation
Pace
Booking With Global Journeys
A typical high standard Insight tour with the usual first class accommodation and tour highlights in a comfortable spacious coach. Excellent Tour Director with a sense of fun. Time was available to see a show on Broadway but extra time was probably required in Washington to look at the Smithsonian. Probably would have liked more opportunity to have lunch at places where things like Subway or similar, even a supermarket rather than Hamburger joints a way from any other choice. Will travel with Insight and book with Global Journeys again.
