Very enjoyable tour through Poland   , NSW, Australia, Mar 2022
Was an amazing tour with an amazing tour guide. Nothing was a hassle and all stops were taken to ensure everyone was included and had a great time.
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.
Great trip!!   , London, United Kingdom, Jan 2022
Each day was jam packed with activities and I was happy we saw a lot of the main attractions in Iceland.
