The Low Down

Collette While new to the Australian market in 2017, Collette have actually been operating since 1918.

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.

Wonderful tour of Costa Rica     0 , OK, United States, Nov 2022
I do not normally travel with guided tours but decided to try it for this trip due to lack of planning time. This was such a good experience! Tracey with Global Journeys was very helpful in guiding us through our booking process and helping us prepare for the trip. Our Collette tour manager Guillermo was very knowledgeable and really cared about each ...read more of the people on the tour having a great experience in his country. Our tour group only had 19 people in it, and we were all a little family by the end of our 2 weeks together. The hotels were very nice, the food was good, and the wildlife was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone considering it!
Brilliant 14 night tour of Ireland   0 , SA, Australia, Jul 2022
Perfect small group tour of 10 people covering Dublin, Belfast, Derry, Donegal, Eniskillen, Galway, Killarney, Kilkenny and lots in between. Well paced with plenty of activities balanced with good free time. Hotels, food, scenery, culture, history, fun, all amazing. Brilliant tour guide Kevin Byron Murphy and driver David Ryan. Font of knowledge and ...read more humor. Suited me well as a mid 60s solo female. The group was a good mix of singles and couples, all in their 60s and 70s - all lovely people
Great Tour   1 , NSW, Australia, Jul 2022
The tour was just the right amount of time, with adequate time to do your own thing plus interesting and well planned activities. The number of the participants was also really good - about 35 of us so we got to know most people over the 9 days. One thing I was disappointed with was that even though the tour says it was for 9 days it really in essence ...read more was only 7, as day 1 was nothing, just checking in to the hotel for the evening and day 9 again was nothing just checking out of the hotel in the morning. So I think it is a bit misleading to call it a 9 day tour. The hotels were all of a very good standard, only one was below par because when we arrived to our room we found the bathroom had not been cleaned. The hotel rooms were all very spacious and all had 2 double sized beds. The ease of booking through Global Journeys was fantastic - great communication throughout the whole process so would definitely book through them again.
Colors of Morocco   0 , California , United States, Sep 2021
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   8 , 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   6 , 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.
7 day Greece tour     0 , NSW, Australia, Nov 2022
Incredibly well run tour, saw many great things with a good mix of free time and sightseeing. At some of the sights, maybe less explaining and more free exploring would be good. There was really great service, with Anna being very knowledgeable and helpful. Gianni was also a great driver, and very organised.
Wonderful tour of Ireland   1 , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
It was a well organised tour. Everything was fine including optional excursions. The Tour Director Debora was very knowledgeable of Ireland.
12 Days German Highlights     1 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
Overall, I would rate it as average. We visited all major cities of Germany and saw the highlights of the cities. The tour bus was comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, but he needs lots of people management skills. He was sarcastic at times and confused us by unwanted description of the daily schedules. He was crawling with the Americans ...read more and basically ignored the other nationalities. Except for a couple of hotels the others were average. When we were in Black Forest, our one room double bed was in the attic, while a single traveler got a 2 bed roomed suite. The dinner menus were average and basically the German food was not that great. Enjoyed the beer.
Frábær Ísland     0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
We were lucky to get to see the Northern Lights on the 2nd night of tour. Unfortunately, we were not so lucky in the last three days because the fog was so thick, we could not see much. The tour director, Holm, was helpful and knowledgeable. The driver did a great job and was able to drive us to places safely despite the thick fog. Geysir is amazing ...read more but the falls are not up to our expectations. I would recommend people to see the falls in Iceland first before seeing other much bigger falls, such as Victoria Falls, Niaga Falls or Iguazu Falls because the falls in Iceland are like miniatures of those giant falls. Overall, it was an enjoyable tour with easy pace.
Western Canada Alaska   0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
We enjoyed our tour and cruise. Our Tour Director Alba was amazing. Her knowledge was incredible. Half the hotels were very good and some were below expectations. A hiccup in Jasper with no power and hot water at our hotel and although Alba and Globus tried to find us other accommodation there was none. An uncomfortable 2 days. We enjoyed the itinerary ...read more on both the Tour and Cruise, the scenery was amazing.
More than expected.   0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
I experienced 15 days of exploring some of America's great NPs. Globus made my dream to come true with a tour that was organised very well. We stayed in good accommodations. The dinner cookout in NP was one of my favourites on tour and the Buffalo tour was very exciting. Thanks to Louise, our driver who was very responsible and made it all safe for ...read more all of us on the long journey. And to Daniel, our Tour Director who worked very hard and was very enthusiastic. I was very satisfied with his behavior and attitude to everyone during the guiding of our tour. Highly recommend travelling with Globus.
