What our clients are saying about their river cruises and tours through Asia

“Nice small group cruise”
Jenni & Susan - QLD, Australia Jan 2020
This cruise is really well organised and goes where a lot of the bigger cruise boats do not go. G Adventures supports small local operators for their day trips and this was evident in a number of places as other tourists were not to be seen e.g. brick making, mule ride, hand made pottery, lunch at training restaurant, etc. Tour Leader (or Chief Experience Officer, CEO, as they are officially called) was very helpful and efficient especially when I had an unexpected trip to hospital. The cabins are more

“Mekong River Cruise with Travelmarvel”
Merrilyn - QLD, Australia Jan 2020
The whole trip was a very enjoyable experience - there is no better way to explore Cambodia and Vietnam than by river boat! Global Journeys made the whole booking process simple and stress free - all information was readily available and any questions I had were answered promptly and professionally by Hannah. I will definitely book future trips through Global Journeys. Travelmarvel exceeded my expectations. The pre and post accommodation was of a high standard and the cruise itself outstanding. more

Stephen - Australia Sep 2019

The crew and tour guide from G-Adventures were first class and we disembarked each day to a new local adventure. Only downside was the five hour bus ride on day 1 to the departure port - I understand that this is now the normal procedure regardless of river levels. G-Adventures delivered on more
