Time and time again I have flicked through brochures on South America wondering where do I start.
There are so many countries I want to see, so many natural wonders and so many vibrant cities. I always feel like I need to take a month off to see it properly. Inevitably the brochures are closed and I tell myself – maybe next year. Suddenly the penny dropped – why not discover South America with an escorted tour?
Insight Vacations, the market leaders of premium escorted tours, have just launched their 2017 USA, Canada & South America brochure. To say I have extreme wanderlust is an understatement! You can stay inside America’s National Parks, tour the Rockies with an Alaskan cruise, or take a private tour of Graceland with one of Elvis Presley’s close friends! Personally speaking, the pièce de résistance are the new itineraries in South America….
They are offering three new tours as well as the Treasures of the Incas tour, which was extremely popular from Ireland last year. The eleven day Classic South America tour is magical. It includes overnighting at the iconic Copacabana Palace Hotel. Frequented by many celebrities, it even has a waiting list to stay here! And that’s not all, you will also dine in its Michelin starred restaurant ❤
‘Impossible to follow that’ I hear you say. Maybe not! Your next stop takes you to the only hotel inside the Iguassu National Park. The indigenous Guarani people will welcome you to tell you tales of jungle life, before you go exploring the Iguassu Falls after the park closes to visitors. How cool is that?
If you have more time, Insight Vacations are offering a twenty two day Grand Tour of South America, which takes in Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Want even more off the beaten track? Try the Quito and the Galapagos Islands tour. This seven day journey includes a five day premium cruise in the Galapagos. It can also be combined with any of their South America tours, depending on how much time, and money, you have!
No matter which tour you choose, with Insight Vacations you can rest assured it will be top class. The attention to detail and the high quality accommodation and dining, means you are getting the best that money can buy, and then some. In fact some of the authentic experiences they offer, are not for sale.
Their coaches come with business class leg room, free wifi and your own tour director or ‘travelling concierge’. Insight’s tours never have more than forty travellers at any one time, the average group size is thirty. Hotel and restaurant tips, taxes and porterage are included, in America this is a big deal! Im told the American tours attract a slightly younger clientele than some of their other tours, and 20% are honeymooners and solo travellers – sounds like a great mix.
