Below is a glimpse into three new outstanding itineraries from the Luxury Gold by Insight Vacations program:
Jewels of the Aegean - first departure on April 29th, 2016
Welcome to the land of ancient gods and legendary lifestyles. With the new 10-day Jewels of the Aegean itinerary, Insight expertly combines the wonder of the ancient Greeks, the flavour of the idyllic Aegean Islands, and the attention to detail that defines every Luxury Gold vacation to create an experience of Homeric proportions. Guests sail across crystalline Mediterranean waters to track down the birthplace of Apollo. They will enjoy an Epicurean Dining experience by savouring Michelin-starred cuisine in the shadow of timeless ruins and collect their stars at the exquisite Varoulko Restaurant overlooking the Mikrolimano Marina. Guests will traipse along the rim of Santorini's caldera to arrive in the vibrant heart of Fira. At the Grande Bretange Hotel Athens, a truly exceptional Luxury Gold property, guests are offered breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament. The Jewels of the Aegean itinerary brings clients' personal epic to life with an unforgettable series of destinations, excursions and culinary triumphs designed to please gods and mortals alike.
Harmony of Central Europe - first departure on May 1st, 2016
From the beginning, the 14-day Harmony of Central Europe Luxury Gold itinerary brings every element of guests' ideal vacation into perfect harmony. After walking in the steps of a 6-year-old Mozart at a specially arranged, out-of-hours Exclusive Insight visit to the glittering Schönbrunn Palace, clients take their seats for a Michelin-starred meal that is a virtuosic performance all its own. They will savour every note of their delicious Epicurean Dining experiences as the First Strudel House of Pest gives way to a private champagne cruise on the 'blue' Danube. Not to be outdone, guests will experience an exclusive, private Chopin recital before celebrating the culmination of their tour with a Celebration Dinner featuring a fine selection of local dishes and wine at a beautiful local restaurant in Warsaw. Guests will be met with truly exceptional hotels along the way, such as the five-star Boscolo hotel in Budapest, offering old-style prestige and elegant interior design. It features the New York Café, considered to be 'the best café in the world' and the Salon Fine Dining Restaurant.
Majestic Switzerland - first departure on June 17th, 2016
Winding high among the world-famous peaks of the Swiss Alps, the 10-day Majestic Switzerland itinerary is designed to provide a breathtakingly elevated experience both literally and figuratively. In St. Moritz, guests take in an Exclusive Insight by joining a nature guide for a mountain stroll, taking in scenic views and spectacular mountain scenery. Here, idyllic alpine passes, a Michelin-starred meal at the chic Seerestaurant Belvédère as an Epicurean Dining experience, and perhaps the highest expression of both cheese and chocolate in Broc and Montreux, meet the lofty standards for quality and service that are the hallmark of a Luxury Gold vacation. Guests will also be treated to stays at some of Switzerland's most exceptional hotels including The Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains in St. Moritz and The Mont Cervin hotel in Zermatt, offering fantastic facilities such as their various gourmet restaurants and a spa. Clients will enjoy all of the advantages of Insight as they are taken above and beyond in Majestic Switzerland.
