Your guide to travelling through Global Journeys
“Gorgeous little towns along the Rhine”
Pretty towns with decorated stores everywhere. A great variety of quality keepsakes instead of the usual stuff. Had plenty of time to explore the town or stop for coffee and cake. Townfolk warm and welcoming and good sense of humour. Wear good walking shoes as most streets have the original cobble stones. Avalon staff were thoughtful and professional. Food on the ship was fantastic and changed each day.
“Amazing Devon and Cornwall”
I arrived at the London Reception Centre to join the tour. I was warmly greeted by the staff and the Tour Director. A great start. A good number also joined there, which was excellent. My previous trips had started badly. A great group of people from several countries including singles travelling.
The second two hotels we stayed in weren’t as good and the breakfasts were somewhat lacking. The Hilton in Bristol was wonderful. I had room service one night and it was excellent. All the included ...read more activities were well thought out and excellent. The optional activities were excellent too.
The weather was wet and cold during the trip even though it was the beginning of summer. I recommend you take a good waterproof jacket. I was thankful I included my daughter’s at the last minute. The tour director, Maria Holzamer, made sure everyone was included and welcome and her commentary was knowledgeable. She and the coach driver went above and beyond to help one passenger who had mobility issues.
“Great trip all over Ireland covering all main attractions”
Best tour we have been on. Lovely group of fellow tourists all keen to see the main attractions. The tour was at a good pace with plenty of stops so not on the coach for longer than 2 hours at a time. Scenery was beautiful. Meals provided were better than previous tours with this company. Accomodation was better than anticipated and in town.
The guide, Liz, was very informative but also very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and shop without being pushy. We really liked the variety of ...read more things to see and do. Our driver was also lovely, helpful and a laugh. He even bought us all lovely fresh strawberries & homemade biscuits. He also drove carefully & helped everyone down out of the coach that needed assistance.
“Scenic Scandanavia and its Fjords by Trafalgar”
It is difficult to find words to describe the natural and cultural environments I saw and experienced on this trip: mind blowing, stunning, breathtaking, amazing, beautiful.... The tour director was hands down the best I have ever been with. Knowledgeable and personable.
The hotels were fine. This is my 6th European tour and I have come to accept that rooms are smaller and more basic than Australians are used to. All hotels on this trip had comfortable beds, decent pillows and amenities. I would ...read more suggest not travelling at the height of summer as the Scandinavian hotels do not have air conditioners. The meals were unbelievable - the best in my experience thus far.
We were a big group - 48 in all made up of Americans, Australians, Canadians, Malaysians and Singaporeans. We quickly bonded to become this touring family. This camaraderie was great since I travel solo. We covered much ground so the usual drawback of long travelling days applied to this tour as well. However in saying this we did have 4 two night stays which made the three travelling days a tad more bearable. The tour director also had the knack of identifying travel fatigue and organised frequent pit stops to see something ‘special’ along the route. Highly recommend this tour.
Thank you to Georgie Walpole for her patience and efficiency for organising my flights, taxis and other bookings!
