What our clients are saying about their journeys in the Amazon
“Great adventure ”
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.
“Amazing Inca Trail and Amazon ”
The most amazing trip. The whole trip was so well organised. The price was definitely worth it. 11 flights in total. Bus rides. Boat rides. Train rides. Hiking. Camping. Amazing food. Amazing group. The only thing I'd suggest is to put in the itinerary about the flight from Lima to Cusco as it wasn't clear. I panicked thinking I had forgotten to book a flight. I'd also suggest to put on a guide about tipping and gratitudes to the guides/tour leaders etc as it was confusing at times and really needs ...read more to be put into a spending budget. The restaurants were fantastic that we were taken to but there were some restaurants that were quite expensive and not necessarily needed. I think to eat in some local places that give you an idea of the culture would be better than eating in a 5 star restaurant. Overall, the best holiday ever. Would recommend this to anyone. Thank you for being our travel agent for this. I would definitely book another holiday through Global Journeys.
“Hectic but great tour!”
The Cosmos Ultimate South America Tour was a wonderful way to see the highlights of South America. But be warned that to do this you will have to fly a lot, especially if you include the Galapagos and Amazon. The Tour guide helped make the flights easier though perhaps up to a quarter of your time may be used in the flights. Accommodation and food was very good, as were included excursions. There could have been more information however on the optional excursions, which were a bit pricey for ...read more what you got. For instance the Sugar Loaf Tour in Rio at about US$70 per person was done by us for US$17 (half price lift ticket for 65 plus) and US$34 by walking 30 minutes from our hotel at Copacabana to the cable car station, and we went early in the morning and massively beat the tourist congestion. One limitation on the Cosmos support was that after we left our main guide in Lima, the replacement guides in Quito and Guayaquil were quite poor. The Galapagos Cruise was extremely good including service and facilities as well as sights. Globus support in planning the trip was great, but Qantas made a lot of changes to our flights which caused some problems.
“Ultimate South America with Brazil's Amazon”
Our Ultimate South America with Brazil Amazon extension tour was so amazing from the beginning until the end of our journey. It was our fourth tour with Cosmos and we were so impressed with how the schedules were properly planned and well organised. We're very happy with the included excursions this time but some optional excursions were not really worth the money we paid for as we took/purchased all the optional excursions offered. We were so blessed to have an excellent tour director, Mauro ...read more Rubinstein. Our local guides were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable especially Charo, Harry & Moses. South America is such an awesome place to visit. We just cannot pick & choose as to what will be the highlight of the tour. Every place we've been was such a life changing experience. So many memories to share, places to see and the hospitality of the local people. We highly recommend this Cosmos tour, South America and the Amazon is a must see place to visit. Also, a big thanks to Georgie Walpole at Global Journeys for making it possible for us to enjoy a stress free holiday.
