Insight Vacations Launches Small-Group Van Tours in the U.S.

Insight Vacations has introduced a collection of regional, small group van tours in the U.S. where guests will travel in intimate style in a new fleet of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans. These tours include an intimate group of no more than 17 guests, besides a two-person team of a travel director and expert driver. The trips can be booked for private groups or joined publicly on scheduled departure dates.

Guests can enjoy access to more immersive experiences, special restaurants, highly rated hotels and locations that aren’t available to larger groups. The trips are inclusive of “Make Travel Matter” sustainable experiences.

Each of Insight’s Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans have spacious seats, overhead luggage space, outlets and USB ports, a TV monitor and a filtered water dispenser. The small van tours are offered on two seven-day regional itineraries, exploring Northern California or Yellowstone National Park.

On the “Yellowstone Discovery” itinerary, guests will begin their adventure in Bozeman, with the opportunity for a hike or archery in Big Sky, before embarking on a four-day sojourn into the Yellowstone National Park. They will visit geysers and hot springs, spot wildlife after-hours with a local expert and join several hikes around the park. A finale awaits guests at Grand Teton National Park, known for its mountains. Guests can indulge in a “Make Travel Matter” experience to learn about the National Elk Refuge, its habitat preservation for endangered species and the nationally significant Jackson elk herd.
