Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their Winter Trips

Best of Greece with Celestyal cruise   , NSW, Australia, Apr 2024
Highly recommend to combine the best of Greece with a Celestyal cruise, ideally after but either way will be well worth it. Overall taste of Greece, by Land and Sea.
Best of Turkey Tour   , NSW, Australia, Mar 2024
It was a well organised trip entirely. The tour director was knowledgeable and caring, the driver was excellent. We cannot complain Trafalgar tours. As always, thank you, Hannah from Global Journeys, for organising this trip for us. You made it easy! We had wonderful time!
Winter Italy tour was great   , Qld, Australia, Mar 2024
From the time we arrived in Italy, the Trafalgar Group looked after us like VIPs, our flight was delayed into Rome, however their team stayed back 15 min to transfer us to the hotel. The optional experiences are good value, created great memories of our trip to Italy.
Ireland   , QLD, Australia, Mar 2024
Global journeys are great to deal with and this Contiki tour was awesome! The trip manager and driver were both great.
