Five years ago my husband and I took two Insight tours - the Grand
Tour of Italy and the Grand Tour of France. We really enjoyed them.
The mix of people was good, half Americans and the rest Aussies, like
us, New Zealanders, Canadians and British. We felt the balance of the
tours was quite well worked out with some free time as well. Just be
sure to budget for optionals which are not included in the basic
tour. You don't have to take them of course, but some, like the Blue
Grotto in Capri and the Accademia in Florence I would not have
missed. Generally the quality of the hotels was OK and the meals
would not offend anyone (not adventurous!) I hope you enjoy your tour.
