The trip was well organised. All highlights were covered. We could have spent more time in some places, like Port Arthur and Anvers. It was a small group but we all enjoyed each others' company. We were well informed throughout the tour.

I loved, loved, loved my holiday, thank you Travel Marvel and Global Journeys. I couldn’t fault anything. Wally the tour director was brilliant! He was absolutely delightful, even his jokes were funny and he knew so much about the history and other interesting bits of information. We had plenty of time at each town we passed through, I never felt rushed. Dave the coach driver was awesome, there are some very tricky roads in Tassie but Dave did a marvellous job - his jokes were funny too!

The accommodation and the food was superb and the other passengers in my tour were so lovely, we all got along really well, I couldn’t stop giggling. I will cherish the memories. Juliet, you made the booking process so easy, you guided me through each step and getting closer to my trip you were just as excited as I was which makes you a very special person, passionate about your job, thank you! I would highly recommend booking a tour through Global Journeys, I will again :)

The highlight was going to Port Arthur and the scenery around this site. We travelled with a mainly older group and most were friendly and easy to travel with. The tour guide and two bus drivers were knowledgeable and friendly towards the group.

I had a good time but probably won't use Travelmarvel again as I didn't realise it is the budget arm of APT. As such the standard of rooms and meals was pretty low, but not all of them, I have to say. There was a lot of driving around in the coach until about 4-5pm and we would have preferred to get into our rooms a bit earlier and have a walk around the area. We only had time to have dinner, then it was too dark to see anything outside and then we were off again at the crack of dawn the next morning. The highlights were all the sights we saw around Tasmania. Carol our tour guide and Ron the coach driver did a wonderful job driving us around and giving us all the relevant facts.
