    Trip: I was really looking forward to this tour since it covered seven countries in 18 days. Some of the destinations have been favorites on previous trips and a few were going to be new to me. I was blown away by everything we saw and were exposed to! Chantal Sucaud was such an outstanding Tour Director. She was so experienced and ready to handle any situation that occurred on our tour. We learned so much about every country we traveled through. She was a fabulous leader for our tour! With all the terrorist events in Europe and around the world, she helped us to be smart about our surroundings and feel safe! The optional experiences were all such a great value. My sister and I have found that we like to do all of them because they are so well planned with exceptional local guides! The meals we enjoyed, the ambience of the restaurants and the local entertainment at the group dinners were all way above any expectations I had! I consider myself a "foodie" and nice meals are important when I travel and I was never disappointed. I posted photos on FB every day of our tour and tagged them with #insightmoments and #insight vacations and I think I have convinced numerous friends to look into your travel company! They loved traveling vicariously with me! I would highly recommend this vacation to anyone who is ready to see and enjoy Europe. I have traveled with several other companies and Insight is the best (this was my fourth tour with them)

    Service: I am so impressed with Insight customer service. A couple days before our tour began, I called with some questions about the starting time of our tour. I was answered promptly, to reassure me that our flight times and arrival for the tour were correct with the timing of the tour.

    Trip: Excellent was we saw, loved the selection and countries. Felt too rushed in really being able to take in the experiences. Would add a few more days to really enjoy the sights and wonderful places.

    Service: prompt in replying to my questions- not as well versed in currency requirements for the trip as I had hoped - appreciated the package I received in the mail- not sure I had been told when/if this was coming

    SERVICE:

    Trip: The Eurostar was great but not sure about the accommodation. It was a very busy hotel and the service was not what you would expect in something as expensive as that.

    Service: This was out first time with Insight Vacations and we did the 15 Day Highlights of Europe and had Philip as our guide. We wanted comfort in travel and a guide that was knowledgeable. We got both of these and would certainly use insight vacations again. I have recommended Insight to my family and friends.
