Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their journeys through Central Europe

12 Days German Highlights     , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
Overall, I would rate it as average. We visited all major cities of Germany and saw the highlights of the cities. The tour bus was comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, but he needs lots of people management skills. He was sarcastic at times and confused us by unwanted description of the daily schedules. He was crawling with the Americans ...read more and basically ignored the other nationalities. Except for a couple of hotels the others were average. When we were in Black Forest, our one room double bed was in the attic, while a single traveler got a 2 bed roomed suite. The dinner menus were average and basically the German food was not that great. Enjoyed the beer.
Best of Austria and Switzerland     , QLD, Australia, Jul 2022
This trip really showed the best of Austria and Switzerland in the allocated length of the trip. Tracey at Global Journeys was great to deal with with all questions answered. Loved the tour! Our guide was very approachable and informative, bus driver was fun with great driving skills, accommodation was also good. Only small issue was the older ones ...read more on the group did not like a shower over the bath as it was sometimes a bit difficult for them. Not all accommodation had this and I know it’s unavoidable.

Included tours are a must! I did all of them and was not disappointed. The group consisted largely of American tourists with a small group of us Aussies. Some highlights were going up the Matterhorn, going on the Glacier Express, seeing a bear swimming in Berne (the guide and driver had never seen this before - they missed it this time as well!), concert in Vienna, Mirabell Gardens, Zermatt, a car free town and visiting the church where the wedding took place in Sound of Music! Loved Lucerne as well. I chose to stay and extra night to go and visit the Jungfrau which was great. I also added a few extra days in Zurich and used the train to visit some extra places like Stein Am Rhein and the Rhein Falls. I would highly recommend this Globus Tour.
Beautiful tour   , NSW, Australia, Jul 2022
A wonderful tour through Austria and Switzerland and the Italian Lakes district. Nice bunch of people on the tour. Mostly Americans. Covered alot of ground. Michael the tour guide and Robbie the driver were great as was Isobel their well being director. Beautiful scenery
Would do it again any time   , United States, Jan 2022
It was just great, I liked everything, the hotel, food, people, the activities. We had great weather too (lots of snow). The only downside was that there were no parties due to COVID restrictions in Austria.
