Booking With Global Journeys
Loved the trip. Very nice hotels, good food. Tour guide kept us informed of all events. For me it was a hassle free trip. I'd certainly consider another tour with Globus. Only 2 comments, I wasn't given the option of travel to London and I was told I needed to book and pay for added excursions before I left Australia. That was not the case for other travellers, they booked and paid as they went. (GJ. Globus highly recommend travellers pre-book their excursions before they leave in case due to availability, however it's not compulsory.)
