What our clients are saying about their cruises around the Arctic, Baltic and Scandinavia
“Happy sailing with Viking”
The cruise was everything we had hoped for. The ship was beautifully presented with many areas to relax and enjoy the scenery. The food and service in the World Cafe was exceptional. Housekeeping was also exceptional with friendly staff who were always there to assist. The Port Talks were very useful and informative and we recommend guests attend them to get the most from their shore excursions. Once again Global Journeys were great and we look forward to booking further cruises with them.
“Viking Ocean Adventures”
Great cruise, one of the best we have done. Our booking, Viking Sky, the food, the ports, the crew, the cabin were all excellent.
“A Holiday You Wish Wouldn't End”
This holiday exceeded our expectations. It was the first time we had travelled on a group tour, as we usually do our own thing, so we were a little anxious. The small group guarantee by Bunnik was therefore attractive. Well, we couldn't have hoped for a better group of people, tour director or bus driver. They were all fantastic! Norway was amazing!!!!! A postcard on every turn in the road and this tour didn't leave anything out. It would be so hard to pick a favourite location or site as there ...read more are simply too many to choose from. I guess if we had to pick a favourite town in Norway it would be Bergen, such a picturesque city with great people, food, wine and scenery. Norway is expensive, but we knew that when we booked, but I must say not as expensive as I first thought. It all depends on what you are shopping for! The Cruise on the Baltics with Holland America was also fantastic. We hadn't been on a cruise since our early 20's so again a little anxious. All anxiety disappeared from the moment we set foot on the ship. The ship staff couldn't be more obliging. The quality of the service and food on board was amazing. Though the ship (MS Zuiderdam) was a little older than some others it was still in good shape and very comfortable. All the ports we visited were great. I think Tallinn (Estonia) and Stockholm were probably our favourites. We only booked tours in St Petersburg and did our own thing in all the other ports. We heard mixed reports on the tours being offered by the Holland America, it really depended on who you spoke to. Overall I would recommend this tour to people who want an enjoyable, hassle free holiday. The pace is good, with only a few longish days in the itinerary. We had one of the best holidays we have ever had and thank Global Journeys and Bunnik Travel for putting this together for us. We will definitely be back for more!
“Couldn't have been better.”
Having always organised our own trips and never having done a tour in a bus with others, we were nervous. However from day one everything was excellent and kept getting better! We can't praise our tour guide Mat and the driver Emanuel too highly. They were professional but fun. Their knowledge of the areas was a major factor and the organisation for each day went as smoothly as clockwork. Mind you our group of 13 could take some of the credit! The itinerary was beautifully planned. When you thought ...read more it couldn't get any better, it did. The accommodation was always in wonderful locations and the rooms spacious and comfortable, All meals were excellent. The unexpected inclusions and the variety of activities were amazing. We initially thought the price was reasonable but came to think it was excellent value. We were looked after right up to the moment of boarding the cruise ship. This also applies to our pre trip booking. Yvonne was the epitome of patience and helpfulness. Thank you Yvonne and Bunnik / Global Journeys. I've been singing your praises since returning home. The photo attached shows just one of the fabulous views from our hotel room.
