Great trip   , NSW, Australia, May 2023
The holiday was fantastic, especially the Rocky Mountaineer trip and the tour bus. The guide was so professional and helpful at all times. Accommodation was outstanding. The Inside passage cruise was very good except that our room stunk of sewage from day one despite the efforts of cabin crew spraying toilet spray every morning and night, Also the dining ...read more room needs a shake up. Meals were cold due to them being pushed out of the kitchen and left on tables before being served. Also they tried to overcharge me $94US for drinks.
E the lead up to the trip   , NSW, Australia, Apr 2023
We had a great trip and all aspects of the tour were well organised. While there was a fair amount of information that we had to provide for each component of the trip and visas had to be sought from the Canadian and the United States governments the outcome was well worth the effort. We would certainly utilise Global Journeys and Georgie if we consider ...read more a further holiday.
Egypt   , QLD, Australia, Apr 2023
Overall tour was very good with the only down point being an over enthusiastic Operations Manager who pushed for our entrance fees etc. as soon as we arrived in Cairo.

The venue chosen for this event was too big & didn't lend itself to interaction between group members. Obviously there were hiccups during the tour but less then we expected considering the country. We would recommend the ' On The Go ' tour.
All aspects of our trip to Uluru were fantastic.   , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
All aspects of our trip to Uluru were fantastic. The service provided by our travel Consultant Hannah was excellent, especially as we were initially not able to get a booking for the Sounds of Silence dinner. Hannah kept in touch with Voyager for cancellations and was able to get us booked in for the dinner around 1 week before departure.

The accommodation ...read more at Sails in the Desert was beyond what we were expecting and was simply first class. All of our tours operated by AAT Kings were great experiences and they really have some great people operating as their bus drivers and tour guides. One driver that went way beyond our expectations was Will and he made our three journeys with him as our driver exceptional. We will certainly be travelling back to Uluru again.
