    Insight Vacations commented on this review
    We thank you for sharing your experience with us; as here at Insight Vacations, we take all feedback we receive very seriously. With that said, we were genuinely disheartened to learn that your recent Splendors of Egypt guided vacation had fallen beneath your expectations, and that this was due to a few different aspects of the trip. Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our Reservations and Operations departments for their attention and careful consideration going forward. In this way, they will endeavour to establish what potential improvements we might be able to implement, to continue to provide the most enjoyable, comfortable and seamless travel experiences to our valued guests. We note that you have also shared these concerns with our Guest Relations team, and would like to confirm that someone from the team will be reaching out to you directly in due course. In the meantime, we hope that you have returned home safely, and with some positive memories from your time in Egypt.

Your Well-Being is Our Top Priority

We Are Committed To Your Well-Being

We have all adapted to this new world, where it’s imperative for us to take additional measures to stay healthy. That’s why you can travel with us reassured that we have put numerous new measures in place to elevate our hygiene standards and protocols. The health and well-being of our guests and team has always been, and always will be, our primary concern.


In this new, fast changing COVID-19 era, we are doing all we can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that we have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the needed peace of mind during your travels in these new times.



Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Our Travel Directors have been newly trained in new and enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of our guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. We will also look to you being well informed before you travel about new protocols required in these areas, and that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of our Travel Directors while on your trip. Our Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.



A Full Team Of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, our operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.



Stringent On the Road Protocols

Our customized luxury coaches are sanitized before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken additional measures to elevate our hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations.


Our drivers are trained with the latest hygiene protocols and will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis.


All our guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organization including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitizing when required. Hand sanitizer is freely available on board for our guests to use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, as these are required to be worn in public in some countries, and additional hand sanitizer to make you feel comfortable.


Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes are available for guest distribution on all trips.



Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

We are very selective in who we work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the health and well-being of our guests as seriously as we do and agree to meet expected guidelines and specifications. We only work with establishments that we are confident will consistently adhere to our standards.



Smaller Groups, More Personal Space

Thanks to our perfect-sized smaller groups and customized luxury coaches with fewer seats, you not only enjoy twice the legroom of a standard coach but also more personal space on board. Smaller groups also mean less queuing whilst embarking and disembarking, as well as at hotels and attractions, so it’s easier to maintain a comfortable physical distance.



Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC), Insight Vacations is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of our partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, our teams work to ensure our supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.



Personal Responsibility – COVID-19 Warning

We have introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you, our other guests, and our team members.


An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the World Health Organisation and government health bodies, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.


We ask that you please take personal responsibility for your well-being. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitisers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practises throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from our professional staff once you are vacationing with us.


In choosing to travel with Insight Vacations, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.


Let’s help keep each other safe and healthy.

Insight Vacations Guides

Questions & Answers

  • What is the pre-registration form required for?

    Insight has a pre-travel registration check-in program which provides your Travel Director with advanced security information which may be required by hotels and border crossings as well as giving them important insights into your interests and preferences. As the information is provided by you before you travel this gives your Travel Director plenty of time to better prepare for your individual needs in order for them to make your holiday experience even more enjoyable.
  • Do you have a past passenger discount program?

    Insight does have a past passenger program and every guest is automatically enrolled in after they complete their first trip with Insight Vacations (or one of their sister brands). Please let our team of Travel Experts know at the time of booking if you are a past passenger to see if you are eligible for any additional discounts.
  • Do you have a non-smoking policy on your tours?

    There is a no smoking policy when you are travelling on the Insight coach. However, your Travel Director will ensure you have plenty of convenience stops giving you the opportunity to smoke, use local restroom facilities, take a scenic snapshot or just relax and enjoy of cup of coffee.
  • What is an optional activity?

    Optional activities are not automatically included in the tour cost but are offered at the start of your tour and designed to enhance your travel experience in the places you visit if you wish to undertake them. Your Travel Director will have a list of available options and the costs of the activities which they will pass onto you on day 1 of the tour. An example of an optional activity is it could be a seafood lunch in Venice, an opera in Vienna or a Grand Canyon Helicopter ride. For more details please have a look at your detailed travel documents which you will receive before departing on the tour.
  • What are some of the advantages for having fewer seats on your coaches?

    When travelling with Insight, it's not just extra legroom that can look forward to but there is also extra large windows. Plus, you can recline without worrying about bothering the passenger behind you and have more room for personal belongings. As the coaches hold fewer people it also means embarking and disembarking the coach takes less time so you have more time to explore the beautiful cities you are visiting.
  • Are the coaches modern and comfortable?

    The luxury coaches have incredible space and comfort for you to enjoy when travelling. The coaches have been specially reconfigured with fewer seats, you will get to relax in style whilst enjoying up to twice as much legroom than on a standard travelling coach.
  • Is travelling by coach relaxing?

    Insight will do their best to make sure you are as comfortable as possible whilst travelling by coach on the tour. They ensure comfort levels by including plenty of rest stops during each coach journey and on each coach, you will find an on-board washroom for all coaches travelling long distances (expect in Morocco). Your Travel Director will also introduce a seat rotation plan each day which guarantees everyone gets to enjoy the magnificent views whilst travelling head and shoulders above the other traffic.
  • What is an Insight Travel Director?

    Insight Travel Directors are amongst the finest tour guides in the touring business and on your tour they will help navigate you through the beauty of the region you are travelling through by exploring the different cultures, languages and diversities.
  • Why should I book onto an Insight Vacations tour?

    Insight is completely unique as they are currently one of the only tour operators to give you more legroom on every tour at no extra cost, you will consistently stay in quality hotels in desirable locations, you will enjoy more included sightseeing and because you travel in smaller groups you will receive more of a personal service from your experienced Travel Director and Travel Driver.
  • What is the best way to exchange my cash for Euros?

    The best exchange rate is always generally with your credit card or debit card but almost all cards are now charging on average a 3% foreign transaction fee. Many places do not accept AMEX as their bank charge is higher than Visa or MasterCard. Another option is simply going to a currency exchange store before you depart to get some Euros converted from your usual currency to cash.
