What are your thoughts about guided vacations ??
In the history of travel, and before I got into the travel business, personally, I associated guided vacations with busloads of older tourists at top attractions with cameras & plaid pants.(I’m talking Ireland in the 80’s :))
No more – these days, guided vacations are immersive, exciting, challenging, incorporating local hosts, cooking experiences and lots more.  Today’s travelers want to go beyond the superficial and really connect with a destination.
Some of the immersive experiences available, but certainly not limited to:
  • Meeting a local Artist and having cocktails at their house while learning all about them and the area/craft.
  • Dining with a local family in a different country
  • Exploring an olive oil farm in Andalusia & having dinner with the owners
  • Foraging & storytelling in Ireland
  • Tasting homemade limoncello from the Esposito sisters’ lemon farm in Italy
  • Interactive cooking classes, such as collecting ingredients from the bustling market in Chiang Mai to use at the Best Thai Cooking School.
Would you like to mingle with an Austrian princess or a British duchess at their castles?  Sip bourbon and swap stories with Grammy-award winning country music star Charlie McCoy in Nashville? Chat with a Marchese over lunch and sample local wines at the second oldest winery in Italy, set amid Marchese Francesco Mazzei’s Tuscan estate?  All available !!!
We have clients traveling this week on an Insight Vacations Luxury Gold tour of Ireland and the itinerary is fabulous – also, at the end of their trip, we’ve organized an intimate professional photo shoot in Dublin City to celebrate their anniversary.
