Last year, Insight Vacations' Gold programme saw a 56% increase in demand following the launch of its deluxe programme the previous year, and the operator has added seven new deluxe Gold standard itineraries to its 2013 US and Canada programme for this year.


They include a 21-day Rhythms and Flavours of America, a nine-day Southern Tastes & Dixie Tunes and an eight-day Icons of the American Heartland, some of which take in new destinations such as Chicago, Nashville, Cape Cod and an authentic paddle-wheel steamboat cruise on the Mississippi River. 

The company's latest launch is also more comprehensive, featuring a total of 24 premium and luxury escorted journeys. Each tour provides a combination of included sightseeing and priority admissions, personal insights, optional excursions and experiential highlights such as the chance to taste wine on the famous Napa Valley Wine Train and an insight into the Amish lifestyle. 

New accommodation options have also been added with 37 new and upgraded hotels ranging from the avant-garde Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, to the historical Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac in the heart of Old Quebec. 

As an example of new tours, a nine-day Gold Boston, Cape Cod & the Islands leads in at £2,950 per person, based on two sharing. It visits Boston, Plymouth, New Bedford, Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod, and the price includes flights; transfers; breakfast accommodation; four further meals including two highlight dinners and a celebration dinner; a tour director; transport; and sightseeing.
