Review: Best of California with Insight

California - Golden Gate Bridge

My wife and I recently took the Best of California tour with Insight. This was a beautiful trip and a wonderful experience for us. We arrived in San Francisco and took the shuttle to the Omni Hotel. The hotel was in a great location, surrounded by shops and restaurants. We met our tour director (Larry) and our traveling companions the first evening. We all hit it off immediately. We then enjoyed a light dinner and a couple of drinks, and turned in for the evening.

Review: Canada’s Rockies With Trafalgar

Lake - Trafalgar Canada

I live in Houston, Texas so when I first contemplated a getaway from the August heat, I wanted somewhere cool and somewhere I’d never been before. I specialize in, and typically take cruises on most of my vacations. I’ve never been on an escorted tour before, so when I decided to try it out, I also wanted one that would be easy to get to, with visits to cities not terribly far from each other, as I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about traveling by bus every day. When I found Trafalgar’s Canada’s Rockies, it was the perfect fit. I got to escape 100 degree heat, and enjoy summertime outdoors in beautiful 60 degree weather, with breathtaking scenery. Outstanding!

Review: Adventures in the Wild Northwest With Trafalgar

Review: Adventures in the Wild Northwest With Trafalgar

My husband hadn’t been to San Francisco before, so we arrived a day early for our tour in order to take in some sights on our own. From China Town to Nob Hill, street car rides to Lombard Street, and Fisherman’s Wharf, we explored the city before we began our tour. The adventure began on Sunday evening with Jason, our expert Travel Director, for a Welcome Reception at the magnificent Hyatt Regency, located across from the old San Francisco ship/ferry terminal in the Embarcadero area.

Review: Austria, Germany & Czech Republic With Adventures By Disney

Review Adventures Disney - Central Europe (Czech Republic, Austria and Germany)

I recently enjoyed a storybook kingdom vacation with Adventures by Disney, where the itinerary included Central Europe (Czech Republic, Austria and Germany). While Adventures by Disney has many guided tours, this particular itinerary is designed for both adults and children 10 years of age and older. This tour was filled with site visits to cathedrals, palaces, castles, medieval villages, ice caves, UNESCO World Heritage sites, galleries, elegant renaissance-era buildings, charming cafes and restaurants. So much history in this region. Hotel stays included 5-star luxury accommodations at the Prague Marriott Hotel, Hotel Edelweiss Berchtesgaden, and the Ritz Carlton. All hotels are centrally located, which allows for great walking tours.
