What our clients are saying about their cruise journeys around Australia
“Magnificent Kimberley Coast”
The Kimberley coast cruise with APT has long been on our bucket list. We had read many positive reviews and they were all true. The ship, the crew, the organisation, the food, the excursions were all exceptional. The expedition staff, led by Jane, went out of their way to ensure we maximised our experience. Well done APT. Closer to home Yvonne and Global Journeys ensured all pre-cruise organisation went smoothly.
“Outstanding Kimberley trip by land and sea”
We had a wonderful 10 days on the land from Broome to Broome via at times very rough roads. Thanks to our driver, Ray, who was a mine of knowledge, as well as working tirelessly to make the trip as smooth (!) as possible. The component by ship gave us a totally different insight from the vast landscape we encountered. We would have liked more time free in Broome, rather than being taken on a coach trip before boarding the ship. Additionally we would have liked to be able to upgrade our flight seats, ...read more rather than being told the APT seats were not upgradable. I feel that Global Journeys should have discussed this with us at the time of booking.
“Kimberley Wilderness Adventures ”
Booking with Global Journeys was good. Overall, the trip was excellent, but we are still extremely disappointed that APT could not see fit to refund a night's accommodation that was booked accidentally, so we will think twice about using the company again. Accommodation good. Time of year was good. We mixed well with other travellers and plan to keep in touch with some. Driver/guide Basil was excellent.
“Complete Kimberley's tour”
Great trip well organised but I suggest people do the land trip first and followed by the cruise.The food, accomodation and itinerary for land and sea trips were first class.
