What our clients are saying about their journeys through Southern Australia
“An Enjoyable Trip”
Just returned home from our trip to the Great Ocean Road and Kangaroo Island and Adelaide. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every part of the trip. Our tour guide and coach driver were great. The food was so enjoyable and the accommodation was the best. My sister and I could not find anything to complain about so I am sure we would travel with your company again. Once again thank you for an enjoyable trip.
“Great Ocean Rd, Kangaroo Island and Barossa”
Global Journeys was very helpful, easy to deal with, efficient and reliable. We had a great trip. We met some great new friends and had a ball. Highlights were Kangaroo Island and the Barossa tour was very good. The accommodation was very good, even in smaller towns, and we were very pleased with the included meals - all were of high quality.
“The best of the best”
My trip to Australia was just as amazing as my last one. Once again Juliet was a great help and she truly set me up with one of the best tours there was on offer. The National Geographic tour was one of the highest rated tours and it truly showed! I got the best of the best on this trip. I loved traveling to the desert and seeing Uluru and also getting to see some koalas on the Great Ocean Road. Unforgettable for sure. The only thing I was somewhat nervous about was when I first showed up for ...read more the welcome meeting the age demographic was a lot older than me and I'm not sure if I was warned about this before I booked the tour. Definitely not Juliet's fault, since I had already had a different travel agent who left on maternity leave before I was put in touch with Juliet. I stayed positive though and still found a way to make friends even though they were 50 years older than I am. My tour guide was young, along with a couple of other people in the group so I stuck with them and really made some friends that I will never forget there as well. Australia was absolutely beautiful and there were so many opportunities to explore each city and do optional activities. I think for this trip, my G Adventures tour guide made it amazing.
“Worry free holiday from Sydney to Melbourne”
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip, Especially the visit to Craig's sheep farm. The meal he put on for us and his talk on sheep rounding up and shearing were great and the place had a pleasant welcoming, homely feel. Immersing ourselves in the history of Ned Kelly and his gang as we visited the places where his story took place really made us feel the harshness of the times when they lived and how injustice could soon turn to tragedy. Unfortunately, heavy rain in Melbourne dampened the last day of the ...read more trip curtailing excursions but then we can't order the weather. Travelling by coach certainly teaches you the distances and nature of the terrain journeyed over.
