Fantastic Croatia and Albania     , VIC, Australia, Nov 2023
Wonderful group of people (28 of us) with a large age range. Everyone got along and Alex, our guide was great. Had a few rainy days but that didn’t dampen our spirits. Itinerary was well thought out with just the right amount of free time. Would highly recommend this trip or any with Globus as I had no complaints at all.
Christmas markets   , NSW, Australia, Nov 2023
As usual, Hannah from Global Journeys was very helpful with my booking, and I will be booking again with her. The Trafalgar trip itself was more relaxing than most in that there were three night stays in each of Prague, Vienna and Budapest. The tour was well planned, and the colder weather only added to the atmosphere, especially with the wonderful ...read more Christmas markets we went to in Vienna and Budapest. The Vienna hotel (Hilton Danube Waterfront) was disappointing for its location in a residential area away from amenities.
First Explore tour, 1st South East Asia Tour   , QLD, Australia, Nov 2023
This was a busy tour from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. We had many different experiences. My favorite was the Ben Tre home stay in the Mekong Delta, a long day to get there: 5.30am departure from Hoi An hotel, bus to Danang airport, flight to HCMC, bus to Ben Tre then finally a boat to the home stay with a great seafood lunch onboard. Our overnight train ...read more from Hanoi to Hue was impacted by floodwaters and we ended up travelling the last 3 hours by bus - we arrived safely.

Weather wasn't great, we had a lot of rain and barely saw the sun but it didn't impact on the planned itinerary. Most hotels were equipped with large golf umbrellas which was very handy. Accommodation was very nice. The tour was full: 16 people, all British except 2 of us from Australia and 1 American. 5 couples, 3 solo females and 3 solo men. I enjoyed the tour and I'm looking at travelling with Explore again. Some fellow travellers had done numerous tours with Explore. Booking with Georgie at Global Journeys is always straightforward.
Awesome Europe experience     , 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.
