Following on from the success of its inaugural India & Nepal programme launched late last year, premium and luxury tour operator, Insight Vacations, has released its brand new collection for 2013.
Covering India (including Rajasthan, Kerala and India’s wildlife), Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka, the new programme offers two luxury Gold itineraries, three Premium escorted journeys and eight brand new mini tours which perfectly complement the longer 7 to 13 day Gold and Premium journeys.
To showcase these fascinating, diverse and culturally rich destinations, Insight’s expert team has crafted each itinerary so travellers can experience the absolute best India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka have to offer. Holiday-makers will enjoy enhanced dining experiences at the finest restaurants, opulent accommodation at hotels and palaces, luxurious transportation and a professional Tour Director, who acts as a ‘personal concierge,’ to accompany guests throughout the journey and show the land, customs and people through the eyes of a local.
Insight guests will be spoilt throughout each spectacular region with incredible Gold and Premium experiences and fantastic sightseeing. Every day there is something special to see or do from a cycle rickshaw ride through the ancient walled city of Old Delhi, a cruise to Mumbai’s Elephanta Caves to touring the medieval architecture of Durbar Square. Guests will also meet with specialist local guides, expert chefs at cookery classes, the residents of fascinating towns and villages and wildlife experts including authorities on the Bengal Tiger.
There will be tantalising dishes in stunning palaces including a Highlight Lunch at the Laxmi Vilas Palace and a lavish dinner at Ja ipur’s City Palace, Welcome Receptions, Celebration Dinners and authentic regional lunches. To ensure guests also experience the utmost luxurious accommodation, the Insight Gold itineraries feature historic palaces, exotic resorts and many leading extravagant hotels. In Udaipur you will stay on your own private island in the white marble surrounds of the Taj Lake Palace and in Agra you will stay in the stunning Oberoi Amarvilas with unrivalled views of the Taj Mahal.
For each of the escorted journeys and mini-tours, Insight has used in-depth guest feedback and personal onsite inspections to handpick some of the region’s best and most indulgent hotels including leading brands such as Fairmont, Taj Hotels, Le Meridien and Hyatt Regency.
There are also a number of ways travellers can save with Insight’s Frequent Traveller Saving which offers five per cent off to those who have travelled with Insight previously. A discount of five per cent is also extended for those travelling in small groups of five to eight people and to those booking two Insight Vacations’ tours together (reduction available on the lower priced tour).
