“Enjoyable Rhine river cruise”
We very much enjoyed our first river cruise. The included excursions were excellent though started quite early in the morning (8 - 10am) so you had to be up quite early. The lower floor cabins were fine though probably not as well laid out as some of the ocean cruises we have been on. Some of the food was lovely other meals ok. The only thing which may put me off river cruising in future is that it was near impossible to spend time away from other travellers unless you were in your room. There were ...read more no little hideaways where you could be by yourself. This surprised me but of course the boats are not that big.
“Great trip around Southern Ireland”
Great trip, Tour Director Katie was excellent. Global Journeys and Tracey bent over backwards to assist us in organising our trip. Thanks to all.
“Four day tour Cairns and Great Barrier Reef”
Accommodation was good at the Novotel. There was absolutely no contact from AAT Kings, which lead to some minor confusion in hotel pick ups for excursions etc.
Global Journeys organisation and contact was first class, prior to and during the holiday, as it has been on previous holidays we booked with them. This holiday was not a tour as such - like the trips we have previously booked with Global Journeys. It could easily have been booked as separate excursions out of Cairns. Maybe there would ...read more also have been a cost savings if the holiday had been organised by us, this way. Perhaps Global Journeys management should look closer at 'holiday partnerships' with other companies, as in this case AAT Kings let the side down somewhat. Yvonne Brooks was extremely helpful, prior to, and during the holiday, in handling any queries that we did have, due to the lack of contact by AAT Kings.
“A trip from gardens to glacier ”
This was my fourth trip with Trafalgar. This time I travelled with a friend. I chose to travel in the summer to enjoy the Butchart Gardens in all its glory. I was not disappointed as the day was sunny and bright and the beauty and scents around me were to be thoroughly enjoyed. Photos will bring me back many memories of the day. This is one of the highlights of the tour for sure. Another highlight was the chance to walk on a glacier, a first for me. Despite tentative steps on the slippery path, the ...read more sight was awesome and the majesty of the surrounding mountains almost overpowering.
Each place we visited during the nine days was unique. Our hotels were very central to surrounding shops and restaurants with the exception of the Kamloops accommodation. Unfortunately, though this was a very comfortable accommodation, it was in the middle of nowhere with not really anywhere much to walk and explore. Our hotel in Victoria was amazing... a suite with so much room. In all, the bedrooms in the hotels were enormous with clean, modern facilities. Exception being the Sawridge Inn in Jasper. This hotel was not very well maintained.
Our tour guide was not the best one I have encountered on previous trips with Trafalgar as the information shared with us was rather confusing leading to two of us becoming lost on our first day! Our driver was very experienced and I felt safe at all times in his care. I look forward to travelling again with Trafalgar in the future. I am usually a solo traveller and have always felt looked after.
