What our clients are saying about their Short Break and City Break experiences
A relaxing 4 day trip with time to look at the natural beauty. A friendly accommodating driver from AAT Kings made the trip enjoyable. Motels were quite good. Organised activities and walks gave a good insight into the Territory and its history. Organised through Global Journeys with no fuss. Thank you.
“Fantastic tour with AAT Kings ”
Global Journeys took the worry out of coordinating such a big trip. Our tour was over 3 days and we certainly covered some ground. Visiting Kakadu National Park, Ubirr Rock with stunning views, then Yellow Water Billabong with an abundance of wildlife, then onto the picturesque Katherine Gorge. Our tour guide was well versed on the area and history providing us with the best tour we could hope for. Accommodation was comfortable with restaurants. Our group was friendly and from all walks of life.
We added this tour onto the Essence of South Africa and so glad that we did. From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed it. We travelled with our friends and were a group of 4. Victoria Falls is breathtaking and was an easy 5km walk along the track. At the Chobe River we saw herds of African animals from our river cruise and Safari drive. This is how I imagined Africa. Our Lodge was on the Zambezi River with magnificent views of the river and more wildlife. The accommodation and inclusive meals were ...read more 5* or more and nothing you asked for was too much trouble. We had many guides on this tour due to crossing so many borders. Sometimes it became a bit confusing. Everything went smoothly with Trafalgar, transfers, airport check in, accommodation and excursions. On the last day the Lodge arranged for us to go to the local village and school. This was so special. Thank you Trafalgar and Hannah at Global Journeys. I can’t wait to return to Africa.
“Four day tour Cairns and Great Barrier Reef”
Accommodation was good at the Novotel. There was absolutely no contact from AAT Kings, which lead to some minor confusion in hotel pick ups for excursions etc. Global Journeys organisation and contact was first class, prior to and during the holiday, as it has been on previous holidays we booked with them. This holiday was not a tour as such - like the trips we have previously booked with Global Journeys. It could easily have been booked as separate excursions out of Cairns. Maybe there would ...read more also have been a cost savings if the holiday had been organised by us, this way. Perhaps Global Journeys management should look closer at 'holiday partnerships' with other companies, as in this case AAT Kings let the side down somewhat. Yvonne Brooks was extremely helpful, prior to, and during the holiday, in handling any queries that we did have, due to the lack of contact by AAT Kings.
