“Scenic Tour Portugal, Spain & Bordeaux river cruise in France”
Wendy - SA, Australia Sep 2019
Our booking through Global Journeys was all via email and went very smoothly, without any hitches. We would not hesitate to book with them once again and in fact already have!! The Scenic 21 Day Western Discovery Tour was very well organised and all went well. The Bordeaux River cruise varied a little from the original program, but this part of the tour depends on tides and water levels. We saw everything that was listed in the programme and more, but just not in the same order as listed. Scenic ...read more

“A roam around the wineries”
Roger & Mary - NSW, Australia Aug 2019
This was a bit of an unusual trip compared to other river cruises we have undertaken.

Carol - NSW, Australia Aug 2019
Our Uniworld River Cruise was amazing but there were a lot of optional tours which we think should be included for all passengers when you have already paid top dollar for the river cruise.

“22 days from Paris to Porto with Scenic”
Pauline & Colin - ACT, Australia Jun 2019
Firstly, I have nothing but praise for Jemma Rosen and Global Journeys in how our trip was organised. Jemma was always helpful, efficient and considerate in replying to any queries we had. This trip included two river cruises, the first in Bordeaux and the second on the Douro River in Portugal. Compared to other river cruises we have done, the Bordeaux trip was a little disappointing - the scenery is not as picturesque and the rivers are very muddy. The cabin on Scenic Diamond was very cramped ...read more
