Insight Vacations eyes gold with luxury tours

ref="" target="_blank">Insight?Vacations, is taking its first steps into the luxury market launching a range of top end tours for 2011.

The Gold Tour Series features seven specially crafted trips which take the fundamentals of a classic Insight tour but tailor them to suit growing demand from more affluent clients.

Director of sales Paul Melinis said during its regular dialogue with agents it was clear that the demand for luxury tours has been increasing sharply.

He added: “The rise in demand is unmistakeable and if our agents need something from us we always do our best to deliver it – hence the Gold Tour Series.

“What really sets the new Gold tours apart are the fine luxury hotels, for example on the Iberian Classic Gold tour clients will stay in the Westin Palace Madrid which was ranked as one of the world’s best hotels and the cruising section of the Gold Egypt tours is aboard the luxury MS Tosca.”

All the itineraries, with the exception of the Egypt tours, are new and include upmarket features like five star hotels, dining in some of the best restaurants in the destinations and offering leisurely itineraries with premium sightseeing tours included.

The destinations featured in the new tours include:? Britain & Ireland Gold; European Masterpiece Gold; Iberian Classic Gold; Italian Vogue Gold; Elegance of Egypt Gold; Elegance of the Pharaohs Gold and Elegance of the Nile Gold.
