Magical Monkey Mia   0 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
Travelmarvel tour director, driver, coach, accommodation and meals were all good. There are some early starts and long days on the road, due to the distances between highlights. Global Journeys timely and professional involvement was much appreciated.
Great river cruise     1 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2023
Had a great time on this river cruise, fabulous weather, plentiful delicious food and wine , staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Good trip but beware of misinformation   2 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2023
Our rail trip was great but could have been perfect if not for a few issues with lack of information and last minute changes to itinerary by Great Rail Journeys which cost us more money. Specifically, we asked what kind of rail pass we would get as this tour was planned almost a year in advance, however we were made to believe that we were getting a ...read more 15-day rail pass that would allow us free rail travel for 15 days which will cover our free days and a day after our tour, so we bought full fare tickets for those days that wouldn't be covered. Well, it turned out that we received a 30-day half fare card which would have entitled us 50% discount on rail trips we already bought for days that they said wouldn't be covered by the swiss pass. Also, for the free days during tour that we did not buy tickets, we could have bought discounted tickets much earlier as fares would have been cheaper 3-6 months before our trip, rather than day before we arrived in Switzerland.

Travel Marvel, Global Journeys and Great Rail Journeys failed to inform us that last minute changes were made to the itinerary which resulted in some of us cancelling private tours we booked on free days and rescheduling at a higher price than what we originally booked. Some of us totally missed out on the private tour. Luckily, these group of 10 friends made the most of the tour so it was still enjoyable despite the nuisance we have encountered. On a positive note, although the tour director could not resolve our issues, he was still great and helpful in his capacity.
Amazing Canada   1 , WA, Australia, Aug 2023
We had an amazing tour to Canada. Everything was so well organised and our accommodation was excellent. Even though we were on a fairly tight schedule each day, we enjoyed every moment discovering and absorbing the beautiful Canadian landscape and cities with our wonderful tour guides. Our many thanks to Toni who was very helpful and efficient with ...read more our booking and answered any queries we had quickly and thank you to Travelmarvel too.
Great Scenery and Culture But the Trains?     0 , NSW, Australia, Jul 2023
To tour the two countries (Sweden & Norway), was great because you could see the similarities and appreciate the differences. It was not too onerous a pace and we had time to look at museums/churches and other points of interest in our free time.
The itinerary was good. We had a variety of experiences. It was good to get to the north of both countries. ...read more We appreciated the culture in Sweden and the landscapes in Norway. The breakfasts at the hotels were amazing and the comfort was good.

Our tour leader was amazingly affable and made sure that we were as comfortable as possible and that we were enjoying the tour.
We were a little disappointed in the trains - they are not tourist trains which meant you did not always have a good window to see the country-side. Whilst this was not as important in Sweden as it was in Norway. In the end, we felt a tour by coach would have been as good.
Great trip to Canada and Alaska   2 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2023
We have just returned from our trip to the Canadian Rockies and Alaskan Inner Passage cruise. It was amazing and met all our expectations. A must do for everyone if possible.
The Rockies and Alaska   2 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2023
Great trip booked by Georgie Walpole. Enjoy booking with Georgie and Global Journeys. Both Western Canada and Alaska are so beautiful. Weather was great. Only rained for less than one hour for the whole trip. I will definitely book future tours with Travelmarvel. No complaints about the tour director, coach driver and cruise liaison - all great and ...read more very helpful and accommodating. Only issue is the cruise ship - Volendam cabins require updating. Cabin carpets are old and dirty.

We had the most wonderful holiday Rachael McSorley from Global Journeys was a blessing she was so helpful with booking and organising our river cruise with Travel Marvel. Cruising down the Danube was a dream come true and the ship and staff did not disappoint. The tours and food were amazing. We will definitely use Global Journeys and Travelmarvel again ...read more in the future.
River cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest     1 , Paphos, Cyprus, May 2023
Everything we hoped it would be, the boat and staff/service were first class. We were so lucky with the weather which helps but also the cities and towns visited were wonderful.
Absolutley Amazing!     0 , VIC, Australia, May 2023
Everything about this trip was truely incredible. The guide was a wealth of knowledge and super friendly. The accommodation was above and beyond expectation (in most cases) the meals that were included, the food was fantastic (except for the place in Whistler that stuffed up the breakfast boxes to go). Canada is the place to go! xx
Enchanting Rockies and Alaska Cruise   0 , VIC, Australia, May 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. Rachael McSorley, our Travel Advisor at Global Journeys was efficient, professional and so helpful.

The scenery was magnificent, the Rocky Mountaineer train was absolutely fantastic, ...read more the meals and accommodation were great and the fellow travellers really nice!

Such a wonderful holiday more than we imagined.     0 , VIC, Australia, May 2023
Our tour was packed with adventure. So much to see and do. The accommodation was was very nice. Breakfast s was delicious. The only let down was when we arrived at Victoria our first day, there was no one to greet us . So l had to arrange a taxi.
Our bus driver Gil was very accommodating. Yes we would travel again with Travelmarvel and you Georgie ...read more Walpole were very helpful while we were filling in our paperwork. Thank you again for your patience. We have some beautiful and amazing memories of our holiday adventure.

Too little time in New Zealand   0 , CA, United States, May 2023
A wonderful one-week trip through the beautiful North Island of New Zealand. We came away wanting more. Our tour leader, Fernando, and coach driver, Matt, were capable and caring throughout. Matt did a terrific job driving us through flooded roads from the Bay of Islands to Auckland.

Highlights were our visits to the Waitangi Treaty Site, the Hobbiton ...read more Movie Set, and the Te Puia Maori cultural experience. Included meals were consistently good; however, stops for lunch "on your own" that left us with too little time to find a good meal in unknown small towns were rather disappointing. Hotels were clean, and had friendly staff, but were not the best -- bathrooms in particular had too little space and were not well designed.
Canada & Alaska 31 Day Tour     0 , QLD, Australia, May 2023
To say our trip to Canada and Alaska was amazing is an under statement. It was a trip that included everything you could think of plus more. Waking up to a Niagara falls sunrise view from our room was just breathtaking, as per our attached photo. Our tour guide Lezlie, on the east coast was excellent. Our tour guide Zac on west coast and Alaska was ...read more nothing less than amazing. His knowledge and compassion for the country and the environment is second to none. Also his care and concern for our group was always evident, thank you Zac. Also Georgie from Global Journeys was very helpful and arranged everything as I requested, thank you Georgie. We would not hesitate to use Global Journeys, or travel with Travelmarvel again.
Swiss rail journey   0 , WA, Australia, Apr 2023
Overall a good trip. It was out of season for Switzerland but a couple of the stops were not too interesting as we really had to wonder around for a couple of hours with nothing much to do, particularly on one Sunday when the place we visited was a bit desolate.
Wonders of the South West   0 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
We were very happy with the tour and everything went smoothly. The accommodation, meals and sightseeing were great and our driver and tour director were excellent and gave us lots of information about the areas we were travelling through and also the history. Western Australia is so vast that we would never cover the distances that we did on the tour ...read more by ourselves. Also we were very impressed with how clean and well kept every city and town - no graffiti anywhere! The highlights were Monkey Mai, Pinnacles Desert and Wave Rock. We would have liked to spend more time in Margaret River. We would definitely travel with Travelmarvel again and book through Global Journeys. And thank you Jemma for all your good work with the bookings as everything worked out perfectly!
Excellent   5 , VIC, Australia, Dec 2022
The whole trip was excellent. I have nothing bad to say. The accommodation was great, the food was to die for and the trips where good. Our cabin on the ship was lovely and in fact the whole ship was great. Crew were also excellent.
Great value for money river cruise.   4 , QLD, Australia, Dec 2022
So glad we chose Travelmarvel's European Gems cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest for our first trip after covid restrictions for the past three years. We sailed on the Polaris, a brand new ship which was modern and tastefully furnished. The staff and crew worked very hard throughout the cruise and were very friendly and eager to please. The cruise director, ...read more Andrew, was always available and approachable and he made sure everyone was informed about each day's tours and activities. The food and drinks were of a high standard and plentiful. We were looked after in every way and felt very special indeed. There were so many lovely passengers on board and we enjoyed their company very much. We saw some amazing places and were thrilled that it also snowed for some of the cruise. Of course, being December, the Christmas markets didn't disappoint either. A big thankyou to Georgie from Global Journeys who always makes booking so easy and stress free and Travelmarvel for a wonderful cruise that was everything we could have hoped for.
More than a relaxing holiday   1 , WA, Australia, Dec 2022
This was a birthday gift for my husband 60th birthday. I fretted and worried that it would be an OTT organised activity trip which he hated...BUT was so pleasantly surprised at how stress free and optional it all was. The tour leader Andrew was fab. The staff superb.
Absolutely everything was outstanding. Could not fault it. Was really hard to get ...read more off!!
