The Art of Traveling in Style

Since 1978, Insight Vacations has been bringing an up close and personal approach to travel, connecting women with the world, far-reaching communities and with a sense of wonder when we wander. Our tour experiences engage guests and support women-owned businesses and heritage preservation, connecting our guests with their destination’s local traditions, historic arts and craftwork, and culinary talent.

It is deeply important to us that travel has a positive impact on the places we visit, and also empowers the passionate people of those locations to share their talent and culture. We believe that travel is empowering to women throughout every aspect of our trips, from the bonds formed with each other in our groups to the immersive connections with the many female-centric communities, families and individuals we visit. As a part of The Travel Corporation’s family of brands, we are driven by the singular ethos of service, not just to the guests we lead, but to the communities we connect with and the world we explore. Come and join us on the journey and witness it for yourself.

For decades, Insight Vacations has offered premium guided tours, where guests can enjoy all the sights and insights of immersive and enriching guided tours. These tours are seamless, with stylish and comfortable transportation, hand-picked hotels, authentic dining, and cooking demonstrations, all expertly planned and with a standard of skip-the-line access.

Each tour is crafted for true comfort and style with premium 5 and 4-star hotels and coaches with extra legroom. Authentic and unique dine-around and dine-at-home experiences offer guests the opportunity to enjoy an exceptional culinary journey through the places they visit, with extensive Vegetarian options across all tour series.

In March 2024, Insight Vacations introduced 11 new Women-Only Tours, based on research from JourneyWoman readers.  Not only do these tours cater to women’s interests, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites, history, culinary, art and wellness activities, each itinerary also includes an immersive MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. These inspiring travel experiences encourage travellers not only to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (notably #5: Gender Equality, to empower women and girls), and highlight important local traditions and businesses owned by women.Several of the new itineraries are 12-day trips, and are offered at an 8 percent discount if booked by May 31st, 2024. On a $7,000 trip, that’s a savings of about $500.

Aligning with Insight’s values of sustainable and empowering tourism bringing guests truly authentic moments meant for curious travellers, we are on our way to ensuring every single tour includes a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. These unique, rigorously chosen experiences not only advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals, also well they positively impact travelers and local communities. Experiences, restaurants, and hotels are chosen to make a powerful impact through their actions, from rebuilding a community center in war-torn parts of Croatia to preserving the ancient art of glassblowing on the Venetian Island of Murano.
