Insights Tours is a boutique, family-owned tour company operated by the Tuckerman family. We are based in the city of Wollongong, on the east coast of Australia.
We have more than 15 years of experience in planning, operating and escorting tours in a wide variety of places including Tasmania, the Australian Outback, New Caledonia, Brazil, Galapagos Islands, Asia and some of the remotest corners of the globe including Central and Southern Africa and South America.
Insights, not just Sightseeing
Insights Tours specializes in showing you the depth and breadth of the areas we visit. We carefully plan our itineraries with the aim of engaging you in an authentic and memorable experience. Our tours visit places that may be off the beaten track, unusual or well-kept local secrets. You’ll experience a broad and diverse range of attractions. Not just cultural and scenic but historical and industrial. Sometimes this means we arrange special one off visits to sites and facilities which may not normally be available to the public. Insights Tours can include inspections of artisan workshops and factories producing goods specific or important to the region.
We take the hard work out of touring. All our tours have an Insights Tours escort so you can relax in the confidence that all of the logistical and administrative details and arrangements are being taken care of. Our escorts pride themselves on resolving any logistical hurdles without our guests being aware wherever possible. All our tours are designed to provide a spacious and comfortable travelling experience. The number of guests is restricted to ensure that guided tours and visits are of greatest benefit. The maximum number of guests is specified in each tour itinerary and is dependent on the type of tour and the means of transportation and places to be visited. Insights Tours engages our own guides to ensure that our guests have the best insight into the location being visited.
How we travel
Each tour presents its own opportunity for various modes of transport – depending on the region, the country, the historical perspective and practicalities: you could be traveling in a heritage railcar or on a chartered train, a spacious modern coach, a ferry or at other times by light aircraft, chartered launch, outrigger canoe or a combination of several of these modes. Insights Tours arranges comfortable, quality accommodation with ensuite facilities, generally of a 4 star standard. We include all meals and provide a complimentary refillable water bottle and in areas where drinking water is not potable, we provide drinking water. Guest numbers are limited to ensure a commodious travelling experience and to ensure that visits and guided tours are of maximum benefit. We always specify the maximum number of guests for each tour.
