“Great tour of Mongolia”

This was a fantastic tour. We were able to see various aspects of Mongolian culture and lifestyles and experience life with nomadic Mongolians. Our tour guide was knowledeable, energetic and helpful. A really enjoyable experience which will provide lasting memories.

“Stress free trip for China highlights”
AA - NSW, Australia Nov 2018

Thanks Cosmos for making our holiday a great and authentic China experience. We appreciate the fact that the tour guide went to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone was happy and satisfied. We loved all the great attractions and cultural experiences and were impressed at how Cosmos gave much more than expected. We loved the food and thought it much healthier than Western diets today. We also were impressed at the way China is tackling pollution, the very good roads, the quality of the new buildings more

“Excellent trip”
Ahmad & Ron - NSW, Australia Sep 2018
Extremely happy with the services provided by Yvonne and the Global Journeys team. The trip to China was great, the small group [12] got along with everyone, the accommodation was premium and very comfortable and clean, the food was very delicious with lots of variety and plenty of food. The Yangtze River Cruise was great, having our meals at the Executive Lounge was a great idea with a choice of European or Chinese food. It was nice to have tea, coffee, juices, soft drinks and cookies all day more
