Each year Insightful Travels and Tours takes a number of trips to Europe. Our travel philosophy is simple and we call it the “Three A’s” Authentic, Affordable and Awe-Inspiring. We have over a dozen years of leading tours abroad and we have some very happy customers.
Why Go with ITATs?
It is difficult to get an authentic version of Europe. You have to be in the know and work a little harder. It is easy to fall into tourist traps and lull yourself to sleep on endless tour busses. We help you find authenticity in each place that we go…maybe its finding an out-of-the-way family owned restaurant or a little know spot with a view you will remember for a lifetime.
We price our trips competitively. We stay in clean, family owned European style hotels that we have been using for years. We eat in restaurants that highlight local and regional cuisine where the locals eat. By going a little off the tourist pathways and eating and drinking where the locals eat and drink you find better deals.
Part of the joy of travel is sight-seeing. There are many places that we see that will impact you with their beauty and history. We try hard to bring these sites to life and not bore you with endless dates and statistics.
Our tours are designed for the traveler who wants to have a meaningful cultural experience and do more than just “check off” a series of sites. Our trips are led by academics and by people who are passionate about the places we go. We believe that good traveling is creating a series of experiences each day and learning how to embrace the serendipity inherent in these moments.
