What our clients are saying about their wildlife tours and cruises

“Great adventure ”
Terry - WA, Australia Sep 2019
What an amazing adventure from starting in the Amazon to finishing in the Galápagos Islands it all went as smooth as. Our tour manager knew her stuff and ensured a seamless trip with all the flights and hotels. The local guides were very good, friendly and knowledgeable with lots to see and do every day. I highly recommend Global Journeys and will use them again and will do another Cosmos adventure.
