The Low Down

Collette While new to the Australian market in 2017, Collette have actually been operating since 1918. Offering coach touring and small group explorations around the world, you won't find too many Aussies and Kiwis on their trips yet, but clients of ours that haven taken the plunge over the last season have come back with very positive reviews. Collette is very popular in the US and now has offices and support in Australia, Canada and the UK too.

Collette market their trips as 4 star accommodation with 5 star service and inclusions - so if that sounds like your cup of tea, then how about this - Collette also includes a roundtrip home to airport chauffeur service for those within a 40km radius of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Darwin, Cairns and Hobart airports.
Globus The Globus Family of Brands, which includes Globus, Cosmos, Monograms & Avalon Waterways are always popular with our clients. Globus offer a premium guided touring experience all over the world, catering mainly for the 55+ market - but like most Operators are open to all ages.

This Collette tour turned out to be one of the best experiences I’ve had traveling with a tour group. All the overnight stays were at nice locations, especially the Sahara camp with the unique accommodations, dromedary ride and scenery. That was one of my favorite stops. Our travel manager, Mohamed Merri and most of the local guides were excellent ...read more with a lot of expertise.
Touring the south of Italy   7 , NSW, Australia, Nov 2019
Great tour of Sicily with a very professional Tour Guide and most experienced bus driver. Stayed at very comfortable and clean hotels with breakfasts included. Tour included visits to famous sites as well as passage through rural areas with olive groves and citrus orchards and great eating experiences. The tour could have included an archaeological ...read more museum or two. On the whole a very enjoyable experience.
Finnish Finland   5 , QLD, Australia, Oct 2019
We just loved Helsinki and the Lille Roberts Hotel which was located in easy walking distance to the town centre and markets. The local Helsinki dining experiences were good especially Emo. A brief introduction to Helsinki and local knowledge shared by our guide was reasonable. Unfortunately, the Lapland component of our tour was misrepresented which ...read more did not take into account seasonal variations to the advertised brochure. The tour was lack lustre and had too much individual time. There easily could have been more touring and places of interest included. At no time was our guide at fault; she went beyond the call of duty to make at least one day memorable for our group. Fault with this tour lands in the lap of Collette who sold an expensive tour which did not deliver.
Iceland and Northern Lights   10 , SA, Australia, Oct 2019
We would recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see what Iceland has to offer. We saw some amazing scenery and were fortunate to see the lights even though it rained every day. Our guide was a bit too laid back, disorganised and even bought her granddaughter to our meet and greet meal which we thought was a bit unprofessional. The accommodation in ...read more Vik is 7 minutes out of town and set up like a summer camp with dormitory style bedrooms away from the reception and restaurant area. Meals were served buffet style and offered a large variety of tasty options. Be warned that everything in Iceland is very expensive to buy.
The Most Beautiful Scenery Imaginable     6 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2019
We have visited most European countries and although all of them are special in their own right, Slovenia and Croatia take first prize for the variety and incredible beauty they offer. This was our first tour with Collette and would use them again. Being met at the airport with a glass of wine was a new and welcome added extra. Kotor, Plitvice Lakes ...read more (featured in our photo) and Dubrovnik were the highlights. The tour was well organised, with a Croatian guide and excellent driver, who skilfully navigated the scenic, but high roads. This was a truly memorable trip. Thanks again to Georgie for arranging the trip.
Magnificent Cities of Central & Eastern Europe   4 , QLD, Australia, Jul 2019
Overall the tour was OK. Hotels and locations of the hotels were good. However some of the coach journeys were long, especially from Budapest to Krakow and Krakow to Warsaw. Could have cut out going to Donaly in Slovakia as we only stopped for lunch there. Seemed a bit of a waste of time as we were then caught up in road works all the way to Warsaw ...read more which made the journey very slow. The coach driver and Tour Manager would have been aware of the road works and the day could have been better planned.
Spain, Portugal and Morocco 2022   0 , NSW, Australia, Apr 2022
We met our tour guide, Abadi along with the rest of our group in Lisbon. We had dinner and got to know more people. We visited several monuments in Lisbon and tile work shop which was very interesting. Our local guide in Morocco was Rashid, who was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Rick's cafe in Casablanca was a beautiful building, we also toured ...read more through a prayer room in the King's mosque. The Marrakesh markets were huge and we saw a Berber carpet cooperative.

The buses all had charging ports for our phones and great WiFi. I loved seeing how the oasis cover valley floors and that there are three different types of desert. Returning to Spain and Costa Del Sol was lovely and the trip to Mijas was special, but I was totally blown away by the Alhambra! We were blessed with amazing weather for the entire trip and saw as much as we could. The hotels throughout the trip were superb.
I loved that Abadi gave us a list of email addresses for our group on the last day. We had a great time.
Very enjoyable tour through Poland   0 , NSW, Australia, Mar 2022
Was an amazing tour with an amazing tour guide. Nothing was a hassle and all stops were taken to ensure everyone was included and had a great time.
Canyonlands Escape   0 , CA, United States, Feb 2022
This was my first tour, other than just day trips, and I was wondering how the tour guide could keep everything organized and on schedule. Well, it didn't take long to relieve any of those thoughts from my mind, because Dereck was definitely in charge and knew what he was doing. Now, for the sights of the tour. The selection of stops, by Globus, for ...read more this trip was spectacular and best of all the bus gets all the close parking spots. We were lodged in the best hotels and dined at nice restaurants. So, to wrap it up, I'm looking forward to planning my next tour with Global Journeys.

The whole process was great. Jemma is a gem. She was extremely helpful right from our first contact. Silvio the tour guide was sensational. His local knowledge was incredible and much appreciated.

Scottish Escape winter tour     3 , ON, Canada, Nov 2019
I must say Scotland is a very interesting and a beautiful country full of history, people are friendly and warm. And this trip made me see the things I've wanted to learn and see about Scotland. Our tour guide was fantastic. Her name is Fiona. I appreciate the way she explains the history behind places we went to. Gave us enough time to explore the ...read more places we went to and answer all questions asked. Fiona is very helpful and responsive. She helped me find my way to Glasgow airport from Edinburgh. Our bus driver Liz of Edinburgh was fantastic as well. Her driving skills are over the top and I've always felt safe while she was driving. I'd definitely recommend this tour if anyone is interested to discover Scotland for the first time. I enjoyed my time a lot and I'd definitely visit again.
