“Interesting trip”
Harry - QLD, Australia Jun 2019
The trip was at a nice pace covered some very interesting places, the tour leader was very helpful. More time in Munich and Vienna would have been an advantage for sight seeing. Overall value for money.

Every day a new highlight, great architecture, lovely scenery and a well organised tour. The tour covered all the areas we wanted to see at a reasonable pace with nice hotels. Dinner nights proved to be a great way for people to have fun and get to know each other.

We enjoyed very much the Glorious Switzerland 8 day tour recently. It was great. Well organised. Martin was a very experienced and knowledgeable tour guide and was very organised. Our group of 35 was great and joyful, came from Canada, US, Australia, NZ and Singapore. Seat rotation was a great idea. Georgie from Global Journeys was very helpful. Will recommend this tour and Global Journeys to friends.
