Booking With Global Journeys
We were very disappointed at the start of our holiday. When we arrived in Copenhagen we found where we had to wait for the Courier. The previous people had been picked up 20 minutes before we arrived. We were supposed to wait 2 hours which stretched out to 3 hours. By that time 14 of my tour had arrived. A Globus van arrived to pick up 3 people from another hotel and tour. After much deliberation squeezed us into the bus. We arrived at our Hotel 15minutes before the Welcome Dinner started. At the start of the tour we were supposed to receive "whispers" these didn't arrive till days later. Oslo Hotel was very hot and was apparently being closed for refurbishment soon after our stay.
