Awesome Europe experience     0 , NSW, Australia, Nov 2023
We did the 7 countries in 10 days tour; it was a well-organised trip and whatever was promised, it happened; no surprises; can I say our amazing Tour Director Luigi has been great, very knowledgeable and giving us extra places to visit as long as time permits, making sure our visit to a country is all well-spent and worth the long drives from one country ...read more to the next. Our coach driver Mateo is the best driver, he drove us everyday in safety and we can all rest and sleep soundly on our seats. Moreover, he always keeps our coach neat and tidy. Thank you for this wonderful experience and great value for the cost of the tour; all the hotels were good and clean (Novotel, Accor Group). Will definitely plan our next holiday with Global Journeys.
Enjoyable short trip to NZ   0 , NSW, Australia, Oct 2023
We booked this 7 day coach tour of the south island of New Zealand to use up some credits Global Journeys were holding for us. Global Journeys had previously helped us organize 2 two-week tours in Canada but we had to cancel them. The NZ tour was good. There were 21 people on our coach, all Aussies and all over 50. They were all experienced travellers ...read more and good fun.

The tour covered all the usual places in the south island, including the TranzAlpine rail trip from Christchurch to Greymouth. We were really enjoying it until we reached Arthur's Pass, and the train was forced to return to Christchurch due to torrential rain. Fortunately our coach was able to pick us up almost immediately, and we continued on our way. We had to organize a few to many of our own meals but the tour was inexpensive, so that's understandable.
A Visit to Europe.     0 , Vic, Australia, Oct 2023
Had a wonderful two weeks. Cosmos were great again, George the tour leader, Giovanni the driver. Had a wonderful group of people on board. Highly recommend. Booking through Global Journeys and Georgie was hassle free once again.
Canyonlands Fall 2023   0 , TX, United States, Oct 2023
It was a wonderful trip. Blue skies, new motor coach and great guide. I think the highlight was each day, each park was better and better. The accommodations were all appropriate for the setting and the dining options were fine, but not memorable. Really impressed with the luggage handling and room check-in efficiency. Maybe a bit more info on Day ...read more 1 logistics to meet the guide and check-in would help but the hotel knew the drill. I would definitely take another Globus/Cosmos tour in the future.
Way to go!     0 , SA, Australia, Oct 2023
Leaving Madrid and our first walled city of Avila, cobblestones, churches and overlapping cultures, was the start of journey through Spain, Portugal and Morocco to beautiful Lisbon and Seville, the mysteries of Morocco and the opulence of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. It is hard to pick one thing out as a highlight. The tour covered the countries ...read more and Cosmos looked after you. Some free time for the more independent traveller but great tour leader, drivers and comfy Coach, to make for easy travel. The wifi was a bonus.
Best way to see most of the Eastern USA and Canada!   0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
The highlight of this tour for us is Niagara Falls where you will ride a boat to the falls nearly in front of it. Cosmos delivered what it says on the itinerary and the quality of the hotels is pretty good, With the exception of no breakfast on almost all days. The hotel rooms are much larger than in Europe and you will see a lot of places in 15 days. ...read more We loved Canada with its many beautiful places especially Ottawa and also enjoyed the eastern side of the USA which is historical and there's much more to see especially New York City and Washington DC where there are lots of museums that are free. Be sure to watch a Broadway show in NY for the experience as you will see Times Square at night and it's amazing! We had one of the best times of our lives and this tour made it happen!!!
Great time in Germany and more     0 , SA, Australia, Sep 2023
Tina and Salvatore made our tour in Germany and Eastern Europe so easy. We saw so much, including lots of art galleries, without the hassle of getting places. Enough free time to do what we wanted and always a great orientation of each place we stayed in. The hotels were comfortable but this came at the cost of being further out from the city centre. ...read more Nothing was too much trouble for our Tour Director- she cared for each person and obviously enjoys people and her job. I would travel Cosmos again in preference to any other tour group.
A Beautiful Country   0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2023
Canada is an amazing country. The tour does a loop through the Canadian Rockies, and the scenery changes every day. We saw rugged mountains, rivers and streams, glaciers, snow fields and wildlife everywhere. The days traveling weren't too long, but you were always on the go. Our tour guide Tarek was extremely knowledgeable about where we were, what ...read more was around us to see, and the country in general. We would highly recommend doing this tour, as we saw so many thing and places that we wouldn't have seen by ourselves.
