Insight Vacations has released its new Exotics Collection, bringing together the countries of India, Nepal, Bhutan, Greece, Jordan, Israel, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco in to one new brochure.
The collection features a range of new premium escorted journeys – including the new 11-day Bhutan, Dragon Kingdom - and an expanded range of Signature hotels, dining and experiences.
The new Bhutan itinerary begins in the capital of Thimphu and travels to Paro, with a host of Signature Experiences along the way such as viewing Buddhist manuscripts at the National Library, meeting local artists, watching monks study at the great Gangteng Monastery and taking a traditional Bhutanese cooking class.
Prices start from £4,475 including flights, VIP door-to-door airport transfers, ten nights' bed-and-breakfast accommodation in four- and five-star hotels with a further five meals, included sightseeing and the services of a tour director.
Two new itineraries have been added to the operator's India programme for next year. As an example, an 11-day Colours of Rajasthan itinerary allows guests to explore Rudyard Kipling’s realm in search of the elusive Indian tiger in the Rathambhore National Park, as well as visiting Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. Signature Experiences along the way will include visiting the Taj Mahal, visiting the house in which Mahatma Gandhi spent the final 14 days of his life and ascending by jeep to the Amber Fort. Guests will stay in the company's Signature hotels, including the five-star Taj Lake Palace Hotel. Prices start from £3,375 including flights, door-to-door airport transfers, ten nights' breakfast accommodation in four- and five-star hotels with a further ten meals, included sightseeing and the services of tour director throughout.
A range of Signature inclusions have also been added to existing itineraries such as the 14-day Treasures of Greece & the Islands, which now includes a cooking demonstration in Olympia and accommodation in the Divani Caravel Hotel. The eight-day Turkish Delights itinerary has also been enhanced with a night in Izmir at the Swissotel Grand Efes overlooking the Kordon Promenade on Turkey’s Aegean Sea.
