What our clients are saying about their journeys along the rivers of Europe & Asia
“River cruise delight”
We are extremely happy to leave some feedback about our recent Avalon River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. The program was first class as was every aspect of the service. Great, knowledgeable and very friendly staff. They went well beyond what we'd expect to make the journey so special. Our cruise director was brilliant and so entertaining. Avalon made sure every little detail was addressed and this was confirmed when we discussed issues with travellers who were cruising with other companies. ...read more It was relaxing yet very special and the overwhelming feel was of that of pure satisfaction. I only wish I had the will power to resist the food! This is not our first cruise but I would certainly recommend Avalon to anyone considering cruising.
“A tip toe through the tulips ”
We booked this Tulip Time Cruise because my husband is a keen gardener and thought we would be gliding down the rivers of Holland and Belgium seeing endless fields of tulips. Unfortunately this was not the case and the only opportunity to see tulips was the included visit to Keukenhof Gardens. In fact, we did not see much of the countryside at all as the boat sailed at night except for 2 afternoons towards the end. This was very disappointing and rather disturbing sleep wise. The cities we visited ...read more were all lovely with beautiful old buildings we don't have in Australia but I would have liked to see the little towns along the river too. The boat was nice and well appointed, the staff friendly and very helpful and of course the food was good with a French chef, maybe a little bit too fancy as only the French do. There was a mix of nationalities on board, the majority of passengers being American, Australian, and English. Everyone seemed to get along. We had a few showery days and it got unseasonably cold for the last few days but overall the weather was as expected. We were disappointed with the amount of entertainment on board... there was only a few nights when anything was on. They were good acts but we were expecting more local acts. We booked the trip with Jemma and as usual it was easy and everything went as planned. Thanks Global Journeys once again.
“River cruising on The Rhine & Moselle”
Throughout our journey we were looked after every step of the way. We came across Global Journeys online and were very impressed with the service right from the beginning and each step of the way. Hannah was very friendly, helpful and kept us well informed. We were away for a total of three weeks on a Scenic European River Cruise along the Rhine and Moselle Rivers which also included a 5 day land tour of Switzerland. The ship was very comfortable, well equipped and modern. The staff and local ...read more guides were all very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the variety of day tours and activities on offer. The scenery was amazing and it was lovely to sit back, relax and watch the world go by. We highly recommend this trip and thank you to Global Journeys for all their help. We would definitely use their services in the future.
“Viking trip from Budapest to Bucharest”
Like any trip there are a lot of positives and an occasional grouch. Our last trip with Viking fell into that category. The trip was well organised, delivered excellent weather which made all the activities pleasant to complete and had a group of people with us of similar age and outlook. Viking manage these trips very well and have a skilled team to ensure your outcome is as pleasant as possible. They employee local guides with good knowledge and generally coherent English language skills which ...read more is really important for those of us with hearing difficulties. The only downside to the trip was food choices particularly at dinner were too much of the same and in some cases quality was not up to a previous high standard.
