What our clients are saying about their journeys along the rivers of Europe & Asia

“The lights of Budapest to the palaces of Prague”
Neil - SA, Australia Jun 2019
Travelling from Budapest to Prague with Avalon Waterways via the Danube was a memorable experience. Our ship was the Avalon Passion built in 2016. The ship was clean and comfortable and the entire crew were friendly, polite and helpful and all spoke English to a competent level. Our cruise director Bram held regular information sessions to keep us informed of what was in store for us the next day. The atmosphere aboard ship was relaxed with no need to wear formal dress for meals and guests were more

“Enjoyabe cruises on Rhone & Rhine Rivers”
Wendy & Edwin - VIC, Australia Jun 2019
Avalon Waterways run great river cruises. The Rhone River cruise was great. Poetry II ship is a lovely vessel, our suite was very comfortable, staff were really good. Excursions on shore were well organised. Food was prepared well, we enjoyed the panorama lounge to have lunches and dinners to watch the river go by. The Rhine River cruise was good. Expression ship a bit larger and slightly less performance of crew and staff. Great scenery on both cruises. Would recommend Avalon for any cruising more

“Wonderful cruise through Provence and Burgundy!”
Denise & Peter - QLD, Australia Jun 2019
I have booked with Global Journeys before and I highly commend Georgie for her professionalism in assisting me to plan our Avalon Waterways Cruise and flights. Our trip was faultless with all flights, connections, transfers and meeting points working out perfectly. The Avalon cruise met our expectations and more. Our cruise host Gayle was warm and welcoming and carried out her role with fantastic organisational skill. Our cabin was spacious and comfortable with the wide sliding windows affording more

“Great river cruise Amsterdam to Budapest”
Andreas & Trudy - NSW, Australia Jun 2019
A great cruise, very well organised, everything went on time and when one of the locks was damaged APT organised changing boats without interfering with the trip. Extremely well done. A great holiday. Flights and cruise well organised by Hannah Campbell, nothing needed to be done. Thank you all.

Cam and Fran's Paris to Normandy River Cruise on Uniworld's Joie de Vivre

I think that Spring is a wonderful time of year to visit Paris. The days are sunny and warm with just enough nip in the air to wear a nice coat (living on the Sunshine Coast makes coat wearing a rare treat!) and the city and parks are coming to life with spring flowers and blossoms. So I was..
