What our clients are saying about their Short Break and City Break experiences
“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.
“Fantastic trip to the red centre”
From the moment we arrived in Alice, everything went exactly as planned. We were very excited to be somewhere where we haven't visited before and had talked about visiting for years. It was such a change in surroundings for us, where we are used to everything being green and quite lush to seeing the dry red earth everywhere and the bluest sky ever. The hotels were great and we enjoyed all of them. The coaches we travelled around in were always spotlessly clean and the most wonderful, friendly ...read more and interesting drivers and guides. They really know their towns, country and area and we were so impressed with their stories and facts about where we were travelling. Congratulations to them all - we loved every minute we spent with them. I can't explain how wonderful it was to visit Uluru and finally see the amazing landscape. We loved every minute of being there and perhaps one of the many, many highlights was the Fields of Light. It was such a perfect night. A big thank you also to Hannah from Global Journeys for her prompt and expert arranging. Everything was perfect. All in all a very memorable trip that we will cherish for a long long time to come. Thank you everyone.
“Kakadu 2 Day Tour”
We recently did the two-day AAT Kings trip to Kakadu. It was absolutely brilliant. Our guides were so knowledgeable, providing a great understanding of the park, the history and the present day. Highly recommended.
“Central Australia by 4WD and Under 1 Million Stars”
What can I say, first of all Global Journeys makes this process really easy. Second of all this trip was amazing. I saw everything I wanted to see, was fed every day, had a place to sleep and have so many photos to remind me of my adventure. If you don't mind roughing it a little, this is the perfect tour for you.
