What our clients are saying about their journeys through Austria
“Incredible journey through the Country Roads of Germany, Austria & Switzerland”
I had a wonderful, very well organised trip. Our tour director was a local Austrian full of interesting history, tip bits, and humour. Our coach driver was excellent, punctual and helpful. It was the best way to travel not having to worry about getting from A to B, our bags magically arrived up in our rooms while we were out sightseeing. I liked the balance on this trip between free time and organised outings. They covered all the major attractions I wanted to see and, unlike other tours, you ...read more never felt they were taking you somewhere to get a deal or push you into buying things. They were very very professional at Insight Vacations.
“Wonderful tour through Glorious Germany and the Czech Republic”
We booked this tour through Jemma at Global Journeys and she did a great job. After the initial booking I wanted to make changes and she handled these with patience and efficiency. I would certainly book my next holiday through her and Global Journeys again. This was our second Albatross tour and definitely the best. There were 16 participants from Australia and NZ and we all got on very well. The Albatross hotels at the start and end of the tour were located near major railway stations which ...read more made it easy to get to and from the airports. The other hotels during the tour were also located in or near the city or town centres. The Berlin public transport system is easy to use and very efficient. We used the S-Bahn on several occasions to get around. There is so much to see in Berlin that we were glad we had booked an extra day at the start. We could easily have spent another 2 days there. Dresden was another highlight with its Gothic architecture and position on the Elbe. The tour included plenty of excellent activities including a river cruises, beautiful scenic walks in Saxony Switzerland, visits to Potsdam palaces, Konigstein Fortress and Colditz Castle. The latter was particularly interesting with the part it played in WW2 as a POW camp. Prague was also great but far too crowded with tourists. I liked that we were taken out of Prague to visit other interesting places like Kutna Hora and Trebon which are not yet on the tourist radar. Staying 2 nights in Cesky Krumlov was also good as it meant you could walk around the town after all the day tourists had gone. The tour director Ernst was very knowledgeable especially in respect of German history and all the local tour guides were excellent. Overall we thought that this tour was excellent value for money. I would certainly consider booking an Albatross Tour in the future.
“Globus Munich to Vienna trip”
Really enjoyed our trip - Austria was lovely. Appreciated efforts of Global Journeys to get us booked onto the trip. Highlights were the concert in Vienna, Sound of Music Church and trip on Danube. Not impressed with our tour director - sat at the front of the coach and offered very little information about places we were passing through.
“Great short stay in Vienna and Prague”
Great way to get a couple of days touring in a couple of the major European cities. No fuss travel, met by guides as required and ensured transfers all worked well. Local tours OK in Vienna & Prague. Hotels in good location to do own touring. Hotel in Vienna undergoing renovations so drilling started at 7am and didn't stop until 3pm. Only a problem if wanted afternoon nap.
