What our clients are saying about their journeys to New England
“Excellent scenic tour of New England with great autumn colours”
We thoroughly enjoyed this 9 day Globus tour which covered the 6 New England States of the USA - Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Everything about the way Globus ran the tour was spot on: an excellent Tour Director who knew the locations extremely well; a very modern, comfortable coach with on-board wifi; an excellent coach driver; excellent hotel accommodation; good breakfasts and a number of good included dinners. Our tour group of 40 was friendly ...read more and cooperative, with good interaction between the American majority and and the Aussie and English minority. Highlights included the Acadia National Park, the Kancamagus Highway and Newport (Rhode Island). We were fortunate to get a lot of spectacular fall foliage colours, especially in the more northerly parts of the trip. The tour is quite fast paced and we covered a lot of ground in 9 days, but it was not overly demanding. We have no complaints or criticisms of the tour or Globus at all. Highly recommended.
The Maritimes are rich in both geography and history. The tour ranged from the rocky coastline with its lighthouses to the wooded inland, with stops in the villages and towns in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Cabot Island and Prince Edward Island (a must for the fans of Anne with an E). Highlights included; the Cabot Trail, Cadillac, the Fisheries Museum in in Lunenburg (where the fate of the cod fishing industry was described), the guided tour of Halifax (along with the visit to the graves of the dead ...read more from the Titanic, the memorial to the victims of the 1917 explosion of a munitions ship and the Citadel), the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, the ‘hookers’ of Cheticamp and, of course, Green Gables. Architecture buffs will appreciate the changing styles of the buildings from Maine to Prince Edward Island. Travelling during the North American Fall, with the trees changing colour, was an added bonus. The accommodation (apart from the last night) was superior and the meals provided as part of the tour did not disappoint (unless you don’t like lobster and scallops). I also liked the free time to potter and explore at our various stops. However, a trip like this depends on the tour director and the driver. I had prepaid the gratuities for both and felt that neither really deserved them, especially the driver who knew only two speeds: fast and stop. Nor did he see it as his job to clean the coach on a regular basis. The tour director sometimes gave information on locations visited, at others not, leaving us with a very patchy sense of the historical and geographical significance of places visited. Nor did she make any arrangements for stops for group members to photograph the changing colours of autumn. Yet, neither director nor driver could detract from the extraordinary beauty of the Maritimes. As for Global Journeys: to use an old Australian expression, their blood is worth bottling. Thanks Jemma.
“Coach and cruise”
We loved our recent trip both by coach and cruise ship. It was fascinating to visit the three beautiful cities of Boston, Montreal and Quebec. The first part on the coach was fast paced, well organised and very well hosted. Our fellow travellers were mainly Americans which was both interesting and delightful to meet such an enthusiastic bunch. The cruise, as always with Holland America was perfect, great staff, activities and excursions. Smooth waters for the most part too. I would recommend this ...read more trip to see a part of the US and Canada not always visited from Australia, especially for lovers of history.
“Lovely Eastern Canada and New England Holiday”
We've just returned from a delightful Travelmarvel journey through Eastern Canada including a Holland America Cruise of New England, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island finishing in beautiful Boston. The scenery was exceptional, hotels were lovely and our tour guide was knowledgeable and ensured our trip went smoothly. Hannah assisted us beautifully with our booking.
