“I loved the educational tour I went on with Insight Vacations.   I have had many clients travel with Insight and they have come back loving the company and touring again and again with them.  Insight has two types within the company, Insight (where they have 5 different styles of tours) and Insight Gold (luxury travel).  Both companies use buses with more legroom, I took a photo of our tour guide Brad who is over 6ft tall in one of the seats and he has ample legroom.

They have an element called Signature Experiences where you get to engage in authenic experiences.  Our trip started with landing in Madrid and a dinner reception to get to know the other in our tour group.  We did a city tour the next day that included a stop at the Prado Museum.  In the afternoon, we had free time.  The next day we ventured to the city of Toledo, which is famous for its swords.  We got a walking city tour and visited the Church of Santo Tome with El Greco’s famous painting.  We stayed the night in Granada,  The next day we toured Alhambra Palace and the royal summer residence before we departed for Seville.  We did see the 15th century cathedral, which is the final resting place of Christopher Columbus.  That evening we were treated to a Flamenco show.

The next morning, we traveled to Cordoba to see Mezquita an 8th Century mosque with a Christian Church built inside it.  It was amazing to see something that had been built so long ago.  The next day we traveled to Lisbon with a stop in Jabugo.  When we arrived in Lisbon we got to see Christ is King in Almada, which is similar to Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. On our last full day in Lisbon we went to the famous Pasteis de Belem where they have managed to keep the recipe a secret for over 100 years.  We did visit Jeronimos Monastery with its amazing architecture.   I would love to travel back to explore more of this area in the near future!”
