“Amazing tour of Ireland ”
Michelle - VIC, Australia Apr 2019
Very well organised booking service, always there ready for my queries. Friendly and very helpful staff that suited my needs.

“Great tour guide and a hassle free tour”
Sandra - NSW, Australia Mar 2019
We did this tour for my partner's 50th. It not only met expectations but went above. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a hassle free tour of Ireland and would use Cosmos for further tours. Hannah from Global Journeys was very patient and helpful and I hope I can get her next time I am travelling.

“British Escape ”
Glenn - WA, Australia Jan 2019
Enjoyed Stonehenge and Bath and the other stops on the way to Liverpool. Arrived in Liverpool too late to see much on the City Tour but the Cavern Club was good. Going north, the stop at Gretna Green was a waste of time - a dreadful little tourist trap. Enjoyed Edinburgh and the Castle tour, and the Scottish Night dinner was great entertainment, but not sure about the tiny little thing they served up as "haggis" (NB the rest of the meal was fine). I had a wonderful lunch of "Haggis, neaps & tatties" more

“Beautiful Britain”
Cynthia, Anna, Chane & Adam - QLD, Australia Jan 2019
Great trip, covered a lot in a short period therefore very fast paced. Would have been nice to spend more time in some places to explore. Taking this trip in summer when it is warmer and longer daylight would be a plus but overall great tour.
