Missed Maralinga   , VIC, Australia, Apr 2022
Maralinga & Eyre Peninsula tour in April was quite good in most respects, but various things, such as some accommodation and roadside picnics, we’re not up to our expectations, given the cost and APT’s reputation.
The Maralinga flights were cancelled due fog in William Creek. Pilots should have positioned to Ceduna the night before. We were told this ...read more had happened before, so APT and William Creek Air should be prepared with alternative Maralinga visit plans. Almost two weeks after this non-event, we have heard nothing from APT re compensation for this full day nonevent. It’s cost would have been a substantial portion of the whole tour. Very disappointed.
Interesting & varied program, well thought out & implemented.   , NSW, Australia, Feb 2022
"Walking the Amalfi Coast" is Exodus' most popular tour and it's easy to see why. The walking program is well-thought out and our leader was able to vary the itinerary in response to the forecast weather and the delayed arrival of the rest of the group from London. It was a disappointing start to my trip, with a mix-up around my transfer from Naples ...read more Airport. The rest of the group was meant to be flying in from London, however due to flight cancellations by British Airways their arrival was delayed by 24 hours. Neither Exodus nor the local leader were aware that I would be arriving independently at Naples Airport, so there was no-one at the airport to meet me. I tried to phone the Exodus emergency number which went unanswered (due to the British Airways crisis) and ended up phoning the hotel directly, who arranged for me to be transferred to Bomerano.
So good, I stayed an addiitonal week!!   , NSW, Australia, Feb 2022
Brilliant week with Exodus, cross-country skiing in Dobbiaco. The tour leaders, Michele and Alex, really make the difference. The Hotel Tschurtschenthaler is family owned & operated, and provided the perfect base for the skiing program - comfortable airy rooms, great breakfasts & dinners, and a magnificent Wellness Spa after a big day skiing.
The ...read more skiing program itself was well organised, with full instruction & guiding provided by our leaders. Michele went above and beyond in his care of us, arranging for activities and dinner on our "free" day and ensuring that everyone was happy and safe. The program was so good that i changed my itinerary and stayed an additional week!
Booking my holiday through Georgie at Global Journeys was easy and efficient. I was kept informed along the way.
Would do it again any time   , United States, Jan 2022
It was just great, I liked everything, the hotel, food, people, the activities. We had great weather too (lots of snow). The only downside was that there were no parties due to COVID restrictions in Austria.
