What our clients are saying about their cruise expeditions around the world


“Trip of a lifetime”
Ken & J - NSW, Australia Nov 2019
A journey to the most remote and coldest continent on our planet was always going to be heavily dependent on weather, and boy did we luck out, with the two journeys to and back through the notoriously rough Drake Passage as calm as it could get. So lucky were we that we got to Antarctica a whole half-day early, and also arrived back into Ushuaia the same, 12 hours early. Throughout the nine days of sailing, we had mostly fine weather, which is a rarity down in that part of the world, with a few days ...read more

“Great adventure ”
Terry - WA, Australia Sep 2019
What an amazing adventure from starting in the Amazon to finishing in the Galápagos Islands it all went as smooth as. Our tour manager knew her stuff and ensured a seamless trip with all the flights and hotels. The local guides were very good, friendly and knowledgeable with lots to see and do every day. I highly recommend Global Journeys and will use them again and will do another Cosmos adventure.

“Amazing wilderness cruise in the Kimberley”
Kathy - WA, Australia Sep 2019
The Kimberley is a once in a lifetime experience and one that all Australians should undertake. The landscape, coast, wildlife, Aboriginal art and culture are unique. The APT vessel, crew, expedition team and service were faultless. We have been on many trips, cruises and independent travel - this experience was the best we have ever experienced. We can recommend it without reservation.

“Great land tour, amazing cruise.”
Fiona & Philip - United Kingdom Aug 2019
We enjoyed the land tour very much, but would make some suggestions for improvement. The driver/guide did an excellent job, but there should have been a separate tour director/ back up driver. Guiding 20 people (many over 70 and not tremendously fit) on several challenging walks was in our opinion too much responsibility for 1 person. The drive on the last day from Halls Creek back to Broome was unreasonably long ( over 12 hours including a 1 hour cruise stop & a few toilet stops) for 1 driver. It ...read more
