“Absolutely Amazing”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2018 1 Helpful Vote
Trip: L'Austral Cruise (GKCS11)

The trip was absolutely amazing from beginning to end, there was not one negative with the boat, excursions or anything pertaining to our experience. We felt privileged to be able to explore this special part of Australia with a very professional company – APT. The ship and their crew could not do enough for the passengers and what blew us away was the educational content and the great Naturalists that were on board and whom we went out with every day to experience this pristine environment.

We have come back raving and we are enticing friends to do the trip and will give them Global Journeys information for booking. Thanks again for making the process so smooth, Global Journeys were great and to APT who we have used for the first time and cannot express how impressed we were with everything.
