RYE, NY, Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Vacations is excited to announce the release of its 2014 Europe and Britain, Eastern Mediterranean & Morocco brochure! Insight's new 2014/2015 program features 15 amazing new vacations with itineraries visiting every country in Europe except one - more than any other tour operator. Insight has also incorporated three new countries, fantastic original Country Roads journeys, additional Signature hotels, and fresh dining experiences. Insight understands the vacation experience is not just about where you go, but also what you see, where you stay, and the people you meet. Every Insight Vacation provides an authentic European experience where you will explore historical landmarks, witness original art, taste unique flavors and meet interesting locals who share insights regarding their amazing homelands.
"Great consideration and care has gone into keeping the features that our guests know and love about Insight Vacations at the heart of what we do," explains Marc Kazlauskas, President of Insight Vacations. "The business-class legroom on coaches, premium hotels in central locations, high level of inclusions and working with Tour Directors at the peak of their careers remains consistent throughout our tours. What we've added is a truly amazing array of inspirational and engaging experiences that will add an authentic dimension to all our itineraries and ensure our guest experience is unparalleled."
"Signature" is a sign of authenticity, and Insight's new brochure highlights a variety of Signature hotels, dining and experiences. Insight selected nearly 60 Signature hotels that are truly spectacular - beautiful châteaus, manor houses, and properties set in incredible locations such as the Hotel Ruze in the center of Cesky Kromlov and the five-star luxury Ashford Castle in Ireland.
"We know that it's authentic local experiences that turn any given day on tour into a highlight," continues Kazlauskas. "Signature experiences have been designed to capture the imagination of our guests whether they are watching sheepdog training in the Scottish highlands, olive oil tasting in Provence or visiting glassblowers, artisans, clog makers and stone masons to watch them at work and gain insight into their lives."
The introduction of Moldova to the program as part of the new 12-day Ukraine, Moldova and Crimea and Andorra and San Marino on the 16-day Principalities of Europe means Insight Vacations now has itineraries in every country in geographical Europe except one - and is the only tour operator to do so.
"Insight's geographical coverage is huge. For anyone trying to count, we visit 45 countries so we can say with more certainty than ever that we will take you to where you want to go," adds Kazlauskas.
