What our clients are saying about their journeys through Central Europe

“A great trip through Europe”
Eileen & Samuel - QLD, Australia Aug 2019
We had a done Cosmos Tour before so decided to go with them again and it didn't disappoint. The tour director was wonderful and organised everything perfectly, we were lucky to get beautiful weather and got to see lots of wonderful castles and palaces that will stay with us forever.

“Excellent comprehensive tour of the beautiful sights of Switzerland”
Dale & Robert - WA, Australia Aug 2019
The Country Roads of Switzerland Tour was very comprehensive and well-paced with plenty of 2-3 night stays and offering free time.

“Globus Munich to Vienna trip”
Jan - WA, Australia Aug 2019

Not impressed with our tour director - sat at the front of the coach and offered very little information about places we were passing through.

“A good introduction to Germany”
Baz - New Zealand Aug 2019

We had no complaints regarding the comfort or facilities provided by the hotels. The tour had three relaxed starts and just one very early start so wasn't too tiring. Our driver was very good and the coach comfortable with good leg room. Overall we enjoyed the tour and would use Insight and Global Journeys ...read more
