“Hassle free holiday”
Mallika & Wimal - VIC, Australia Jul 2019

The Tour Leader Jody and the driver Peter were two wonderful people who were so knowledgeable, professional and lovely to be with. We would not hesitate to book another holiday with Global Journeys. Everything was so precisely done, except ...read more

“The amazing Rockies and Alaska”
Carol - NSW, Australia Jul 2019
The trip surpassed all my expectations. Every day was a new and beautiful part of Canada that got better and better. The Cosmos tour was fantastic. It showed us so many hidden gems and I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience western Canada and Alaska.

“Exceptional holiday to Canada and Alaska”
Julie & Anne - NSW, Australia Jul 2019
We had a wonderful, well organised holiday through Canada and Alaska. A coach full of only Australian tourists, who, apart from 2 people, all continued on the cruise. Great friendships made and good times had by all.
