Insight Gold is an exclusive collection of deluxe escorted tours, each celebrating the fine art of luxury travel, genuine local experiences and great service.
Our Iconic Hotel Collection exudes elegance and style, featuring luxury hotels throughout. You'll enjoy Manor houses, Relais & Châteaux and unique or culturally typical hotels when visiting smaller and picturesque towns. Many properties are members of Leading Hotels of the World or other internationally recognized upmarket or specialised hotel associations.
Insight Gold has more leisurely itineraries than other deluxe tours. We feature relaxed stays in the best locations in the most sought-after towns, cities and scenic areas. In each destination you will enjoy plenty of free time for personal exploration and individual activities.
You'll delight in our delicious & authentic dining. Savour four course and full buffet hotel dining, a-la-carte menus in gourmet and smaller local restaurants and full cooked breakfasts. You'll never be issued with dining vouchers or color-coded menu restrictions!
Insight Gold has a more personalised service, with smaller group sizes, less waiting, no crowding and more individual attention from the finest Tour Directors in the business. Our Tour Directors are caring, seasoned professionals each of whom has a love of travel and a vast knowledge of each destination. They'll take care of all the hassles, dealing on your behalf with the labyrinth of languages, customs and currencies. He or she will act as your 'Personal Concierge', so you'lll feel like a local as they introduce you to people and places, assist with private dining or theatre reservations, and personalized free-time activities, excursions, transport and services.
We take care of everything. You'll never have to carry luggage nor worry about hotel & dining gratuities or entrances fees & taxes (tour director & driver gratuities are at your discretion).
