Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their Religious journeys

12 Days German Highlights     , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
Overall, I would rate it as average. We visited all major cities of Germany and saw the highlights of the cities. The tour bus was comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, but he needs lots of people management skills. He was sarcastic at times and confused us by unwanted description of the daily schedules. He was crawling with the Americans ...read more and basically ignored the other nationalities. Except for a couple of hotels the others were average. When we were in Black Forest, our one room double bed was in the attic, while a single traveler got a 2 bed roomed suite. The dinner menus were average and basically the German food was not that great. Enjoyed the beer.
A good tour with a great balance of locations   , NSW, Australia, May 2019
The tour traces the travels of St Paul from the Macedonian area of Thessaloniki to Athens and the islands as an extra. Very much enjoyed the people I travelled with and the knowledgeable guides' perspectives. Most hotel and ship accomodation was fine although not four star and an oceanview option would have been good.
Pilgrimage to Fatima and Lourdes with Barcelona     , NSW, Australia, Oct 2018
It was the pilgrimage of a lifetime... I felt so blessed to have joined this group, there were a lot of wonderful people, there were 4 priests who joined us and the tour manager Pedro was just so wonderful and very knowledgeable. I would surely book with Colette and Global Journeys again.
Memorable trip to Italy   , NSW, Australia, Sep 2018
I had a wonderful time in Italy! Global Journeys had everything organised from pickup at Rome airport to departure from Venice. Thereafter, nothing to worry about, except to stick to the tour guide or have the tour director‘s phone number with you - just in case you wandered off and found that you have lost the group. Hearty breakfast every morning, ...read more and then ‘where are we going today’. Rome (audience with the Pope), Assisi, Florence, Siena, Padua and Venice were amazing. We were very lucky to have Alexandro as our attentive & patient tour director, and Neno as our safe driver! Highly recommended! Plan to visit Italy again.
