Experience the Magic of a European Winter Wonderland

~ Insight Vacations introduces three new Christmas Market itineraries for 2015/2016 ~

DELRAY BEACH, FL, April 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Vacations ® has launched its 2015/2016 Europe Fall, Winter & Spring brochure, including the Eastern Mediterranean and Christmas Markets. This collection includes 40 unforgettable premium itineraries, including three exciting new Christmas Market itineraries and three new Egyptian Gold Luxury journeys. These tours are priced up to 40% lower than those in the summer season, and guests who book and pay by August 31 can save up to an additional $982 per couple.

The popularity of last year's Christmas Market holidays inspired this expanded collection, which now includes seven tailored Christmas journeys visiting some of Europe's most historic and picturesque markets. Insight guests can experience the joyous holiday spirit in such famed marketplaces as Zürich, Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Rothenberg, Nuremberg and Munich. Three new itineraries also visit some of the lesser known markets in Poland and Italy, adding value for repeat travelers looking to re-experience a European winter wonderland.

This winter brochure takes guests into some of the most coveted destinations in Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean such as Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Alps, Central Europe, Morocco, Greece, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Israel. The collection's three new Gold Luxury journeys provide the most exquisite way to explore Egypt, incorporating a cruise onboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection's elegant all-suite River Tosca - the Nile's finest ship.

All of these destinations attract noticeably less tourists during the winter period, providing guests with better access to attractions that can be extremely crowded during the summertime. Winter travel also allows for discounted airfares and milder temperatures.

Signature Experiences are hallmarks on all these journeys, as guests immerse themselves in the local traditions and festivities. Meeting a local stallholder at the Vienna Christmas Markets, sampling delightful regional delicacies, and taking a horse-drawn carriage through the snow-capped mountains of Innsbruck are just a few of the authentic experiences Insight guests can look forward to enjoying.

Signature Evening experiences forgo the typical nighttime tourist activities. In Seville, Insight guests are amazed by a dramatic Spanish flamenco performance while Cappadocia visitors celebrate Turkish tradition at a folklore show. Signature hotels are located in the best locations throughout Europe, including the sumptuous Le Berbère Palace in Ouarzazate, the Gran Meliá Fénix in Madrid, Lisbon's Altis Grand and the Swissôtel Dresden.

Each escorted journey has a host of inclusions such as Premium and Luxury centrally located hotels, an experienced Tour Director, many meals, luxury coach transport with Business Class legroom, smaller groups, Signature Experiences, priority admissions, free Wi-Fi and airport transfers.
