What our clients are saying about their holidays in and around Germany
“Nice itinerary for a Christmas tour, but fellow travellers make or break enjoyment level”
The Xmas markets were very pretty and worth doing as a new experience. The standard of accommodation was pretty good, (only one hotel in Innsbruck was not clean and up to standard) but internal heating was too warm everywhere. For future travellers, layers is the way to go, T-shirts under jumpers and then overcoats, allows for stripping off the layers as things get warmer inside. Lake Bled was the highlight of the tour and a great place to spend 4 days over Xmas. Although the itinerary was good, ...read more more free time for meals and less included meals with fellow travellers would be an improvement and could make the tour cost more economical and enjoyable.
“Well run trip”
Well run and organised tour, good pace most days, last two days were fill in and disappointing. Overall a good tour as it snowed up in the Alps on the first day and different places to see each day.
A wonderful Winter holiday highlighting the best of the Christmas markets in Europe. Helpful staff and great driver added to this fantastic experience!
“Amazing European Christmas Markets”
I would not hesitate to book through Global Journeys again. It was easy and stress free. Our tour was great. Our guide Agnes was wonderful, and nothing was too much trouble for her. She was very knowledgeable, and interesting to listen to. Our hotels were pretty good, although one did not provide free internet, which surprised us. The markets were amazing, even the shops joined in with the decorations. One thing to be aware of, not all of the Christmas markets were open. One in Munich opened the ...read more day we arrived, and Lucerne did not open until December 5th, so we missed that one. Overall, a lovely tour.
