This was our first Insight tour and we would definitely take another. Our tour guide (Ann) was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much information about the area and the places we were visiting. She had a great personality and you could tell that she loved what she did. Our bus driver (Kevin) was pleasant and courteous and kept the bus windows spotless!
Vacation
Hotels/lodges were all nice. Meals that were included were very good.
