Worry free river cruise   3 , QLD, Australia, Dec 2019
What can I say, four women off to Europe on a Christmas Markets river cruise, we had a wonderful holiday and it was made very easy for us as we had the best crew on board and one of the best tour directors in Karla. There was plenty of food, wine and beer. Would highly recommend this cruise nothing was to much trouble and everything went as planned more.
Fantastic river cruise Amstedam to Budapest with Travelmarvel   6 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
What a cruise - fantastic, a great experience. Let's start with Global Journeys - Yvonne was faultless, found us a great deal, organised our flights, looked after us really well - highly recommended. Travelmarvel - our cruise co-ordinator Jude went out of her way to ensure we had the best time and that we got the best out of our cruise, really looked more after any little problem for everybody. The boat "Sapphire" was great - cabins quite comfortable and a good size. The on board entertainment was great, we were kept well fed, hydrated, entertained, informed and worry free.

This cruise travels through some very scenic and beautiful river valleys and towns, the onshore excursions ensure you experience another lifestyle in many different countries with castles, churches, buildings and unlimited history. Your cruise can be as relaxed or as busy as you wish, there are things to do everyday or you can choose to stay and relax, no pressure. Another great thing - the ship has a maximum of 150 passengers which means a great social atmosphere and the opportunity to make many new friends.
Wonderful river cruise, exceeded expectations   7 , ACT, Australia, Jul 2019
The European Gems River Cruise, Amsterdam to Budapest was wonderful, accommodation, food, entertainment and fellow travellers exceeded my expectations. There were many highlights, Amsterdam was so special cruising through their canal systems, the Rhine Gorge was amazing, drifting past the vine-covered slopes, saw so many castles, Rudesheim the visit more to Siegfried's Mechanical Instrument Museum was certainly a highlight as was every place the ship stopped at.

My highlight was cruising the Danube into Budapest at 7.30 am, on the top deck with commentary about the amazing buildings unfolding before us..SO Special. We needed to swap ships, due to water levels, this was very well organised and certainly not a problem. I would certainly travel with Travelmarvel again, will recommend Yvonne Brooks, our Travel Agent as she was very efficient and accommodating.
Best organised tour we have experienced!   3 , TAS, Australia, May 2018
A very relaxed and organised tour. The Tour Director, Sue was super efficient and lovely. Had not heard of Travelmarvel before, but would certainly travel with them again as the food, program, cabins and service was excellent. The local guides were super and funny. We also had the best weather and a nice group of people on the ship. Thank you to Global more Journeys for an easy and efficient booking service.
European Gems   4 , WA, Australia, May 2018
Our holiday was everything we hoped for, and more. Excursions, fine dining, tour guides and the ship were of the highest calibre.
Worry free travel through Europe   4 , WA, Australia, Sep 2017
We loved this tour through Europe. From the very beginning in Paris throughout the river cruise and onto Prague we had an amazing time. Our tour directors in each area were very accommodating and in particular Susan, our River Cruise Director, was spectacular. We were well taken care of on our cruise ship with warm, welcoming and efficient staff.

We more arrived early in most ports of call and were well informed of what to expect in each region. The food was a delight and the entertainment enjoyable. Out hotels in Paris and Prague were centrally located and we were able to be independent in these areas with valuable insights supplied by our local hosts / tour directors.

During our time on the river cruise we enjoyed a local experience into local resident homes and this provided us with a valuable insight into how they lived and we would recommend this to other travellers. We would have no hesitation in recommending Travelmarvel to other persons as we felt they were very efficient in running their tours like clockwork.

Once again we would like to tank Yvonne from Global Journeys for her excellent service in organizing our holiday - we have gone through Yvonne before and find her handling our out travel arrangements very thorough. Well done to Travelmarvel and to Global Journeys for another wonderful holiday.

Fantastic trip through Eastern Europe and river cruise to Amsterdam   1 , QLD, Australia, May 2017
Tour Director on land section (2 weeks Venice to Budapest) was more than excellent. Fellow travellers from land section also continued on the river cruise and having 4 weeks to get to know this group in particular added greatly to our overall enjoyment of the whole trip.
