Delve into an incredible variety of over 100 included Insight Experiences, meet fascinating people and step into their homes and their lives. Learn about the history and pioneering projects, or maybe take a cooking class or learn to dance. Discovery Journeys are the ideal tour style for first-time travellers, showing the very best of a region - Europe, Britain, USA and more - has to offer. Insight Vacations will introduce you to multiple countries in one comprehensive journey. A variety of Insight Experiences immerses you in the destination and its people. 

Travel deeper by picking one place that you’ve always longed to visit.  

Their Regional Journeys are carefully planned to let you explore one region or country in depth, to really know its people, traditions and culture, or perhaps choose to get off the well-trodden tourist path and visit hidden retreats, meet amazing locals and enjoy Farm-to-Table dining.

Country Roads journeys are the perfect choice for travellers who have already travelled with us or have already seen the iconic tourist sites in a destination. A fabulous and enriching experience.

On our collection of Easy Pace journeys, you will have more time to explore destinations at your own pace. In each destination, you can settle into your hotel by enjoying a minimum 3-night stay, experience more free time with additional Relaxed Starts built into your itinerary and delight in days at leisure at select points on your tour.

Every year Insight Vacations create a series of Special Interest Tours to complement their collection of premium guided tours; whether it is celebrating your love of European art, exploring the famous Chelsea Flower Show or experiencing the once-in-a-lifetime performance of the Passion Play in Oberammergau. Special Interest Tours let you explore your passion with like-minded travellers that allow you to truly immerse yourself in what you love most. These various tours cater for a wide variety of age groups.

Contiki does not just do it for the places, they believe in creating shared moments. Moments that widen eyes.

Moments that fill up digital memory cards with hundreds of photos or cram your Instagram feed and cell phone’s gallery. Do it for the memories. The memory of dancing until the sun came up, laughing until you couldn’t breathe, sharing a part of yourself with the world, and yes, got so, so much more in return. Do it for a community you’ll be a part of for life.

A Contiki tour is an organised, cultural embracing trip led by expert guides, where travellers get to explore new and interesting places and make friends from all over the world, with zero hassle, delicious meals included and multiple travel styles from which to choose, turning your shy hellos into tearful goodbyes.

Offering tours that typically vary between one and two weeks in duration, that are cost-effective (under R16,000-00 for example) but best of all, trips consist of small groups of people (usually 10 travellers or fewer).
