Great Trip & Value fior Money   , VIC, Australia, May 2024
This trip was quite a pacey one. Well organised and filled with lots of interactive activities.

Hassle free, everything's been taken care of for me!     , Auckland, New Zealand, Apr 2024
Will always travel with Trafalgar, one of the main reasons would be having a local as the tour director. I learn so much more. Ako san was an excellent guide. Very informative, patient, gentle and a genuinely super nice person. First time I used Global Journeys. Hannah Perry is so efficient and easy to work with, see you soon, Hannah! Arigato
