Excellent tour exploring Normandy     , NSW, Australia, May 2024
Fantastic tour guide, great hotel 4 nights in Bayeux, good amount of time visiting each town. Highlight was Mont St Michel! Very professional driver too. Would recommend this tour.
Slick and Good Attention to Detail   , QLD, Australia, May 2024
Thanks Intrepid. Booking with a company we had never used before we were slightly concerned at the lack of (tiny) details (prior to the trip), but true to our agent at Global Journeys, Hannah and Intrepid made it all look easy. I know what it's like wrangling parties of 10 or more (like herding fleas), but our group was always on time for meet ups, ...read more and our guide, Valentina Lorrasu was absolutely brilliant. It was her first tour with Intrepid, but she had researched our trip in great detail and was not only great at 'mothering us' along, but she handled some out-of-left-field issues with great aplomb. This was also our first overseas trip since 2019 (COVID), and we came home feeling we had received outstanding value for money, great hotels, terrific food and the sights around Sicily were a treat. Thanks Global Journeys, Intrepid and Valentina - terrific combination of professionals.
Best Scenic Tour   , NSW, Australia, May 2024
I had a great time on this Cosmos tour. Both the tour director and bus driver were so good and professional at their jobs. They went above and beyond ensuring all travellers were happy and satisfied. We also had a good group travelling together who all got on well. The scenery and places visited were very beautiful and unforgettable. The hotels were ...read more overall very good. Weather wise we were had it good with only 1 day not being the best.

Finally the booking process with Global Journey’s and my agent Hannah was both user friendly and faultless. Thank you.
Danube river cruise with Avalon     , New Zealand, May 2024
We did have an unfortunate start to our holiday. When we arrived at Auckland Airport & attempted to check in at Qatar airlines we were told our Travel Agent had cancelled our booking, after a two hour wait trying to sort this out & not being able to get hold of Global Journeys because it was a Sunday we eventually had to purchase two more tickets to ...read more Prague. We have been fully reimbursed by Global Journeys & thank them & Maisie for their quick response. We are still awaiting a full explanation as to why this happened.

The Avalon cruise from Prague to Budapest was fantastic & lived up to our expectations as we had previously cruised on the Rhine with Avalon & were well aware of their very high standards. The excursions available were varied & appeared to suit all passengers. The meals were as expected excellent & the activities & onboard entertainment were very well received by all. Our cruise director Daniela did an amazing job of organising the daily activities & keeping all passengers up to date with up & coming events. We meet some lovely people on board & shared many meal times & a few beers & wines with them.
