Viking cruise Venice to Istanbul   , VIC, Australia, Aug 2023
Thanks Tracey, the cruise and itinerary was first class with nothing too much trouble for the friendly Viking crew. There were highlights and tours at every port, each one offering amazing insights into these ancient countries and cities. Global Journeys made the booking process simple and assistance always available.

The only downside for us was ...read more the airline choice and final booking for flights seemed rushed with limited options. I realise we chose Singapore Airlines economy but on reflection it was a poor choice, crowded and uncomfortable. I think more time and advice from Global Journeys should have been available. The return flight took the shine off the experience.
Brilliant cruise, perfect ship, outstanding crew     , WA, Australia, May 2023
16 days of pure luxury, with brilliant and caring staff. The cabin was great as was the food and the entertainment on board. Shore excursions were very good particularly Ephesus & the Acropolis. Croatia was a delight with wine & olives. Only disappointment was shore trip to Burano and Murano, which were interesting once we had arrived but two hours ...read more on the most uncomfortable hard seats in the cramped boat was not pleasant.
Cruising the Dalmatian Coast with TravelMarvel - with 26 passengers aboard.   , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
This was a fabulous holiday, relaxing, cruising, touring, eating, drinking, having fun, meeting new friends and listening to their stories, etc. Our stops included ZADAR (beautiful town); KRKA (National Park with amazing water falls); SIBENIK (lots of history); SPLIT (stunning open air restaurants); KORCULA (more historic fortresses, etc); and finally ...read more we arrived in DUBROVNIK (picture post card beautiful). In each port we get a walking or bus tour to familiarise ourselves with the town. I enjoy looking at all my surroundings but if I felt overloaded with too much history dating back to the 9th century about the Otterman era, Roman, Venetian etc. I simply wandered off on my own.
8 Day Adriatic Coastal Cruise   , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
This was a well-priced fabulous cruise, particularly as it was a small group tour. Croatia is a must-see destination. We were fortunate in having a great tour leader, Karen, who was very knowledgeable and always available.
