Where can I find room options?

If you a traveling in a party of three adult guests, please note triple rooms on occasions have a fold out, or limited space for three beds.

How much is the solo supplement?

Select your departure date and review your solo travel options in the ‘Trip Overview’ section.

What is a definite departure?

A departure is shown as 'Definite Departure' once it has reached a minimum number of guests. That particular departure will definitely run, barring any extraordinary circumstances. It is highly unlikely a departure won't meet the minimum number of guests. But if this is the case, you will be offered the best alternative dates or a full refund of any payment made.

If there are ever any changes to your departure, one of our Travel Experts will contact you.  

How many guests will be on this tour?

A personal experience is at the heart of what you can expect. Choose from 2 group sizes, where you’ll always enjoy dedicated attention and access to unique experiences thanks to all groups being smaller than the mainstream tour companies. With both group sizes you’ll travel on custom ‘Business Class’ style coaches that offer more leg room and larger window spans.

Choose an average group size of just 33 travelers: Capped at a maximum of 40 guests, these groups offer an enhanced experience versus larger mainstream tours of 50 or more.

Or, choose an average of just 20 guests: Capped at a maximum of just 24 guests, this choice is perfect if you prefer an even more individualised experience.

Choose your preference in the dates and prices panel of your tour page or speak to one of our Travel Experts or your local Travel Advisor.

With your comfort in mind, Insight Vacations assigns every tour an activity level. The activity level for your chosen tour is displayed in the tour introduction.
