What our clients are saying about their Scandinavian journeys
“Wonderful winter in Scandinavia”
We had an amazing trip through Finland and Norway over Christmas and New Year. We travelled with Insight Vacations and found the tour director Lene looked after us very well. Would have loved to spend extra time in Ivalo as I feel one night was not enough. All the hotels were clean and comfortable and the included meals were ok. It was definitely an experience to spend time in the Arctic Circle at this time of year as there is no real daylight. We were very happy booking through Global Journeys and ...read more would not hesitate in doing so again.
“Finnish Finland ”
We just loved Helsinki and the Lille Roberts Hotel which was located in easy walking distance to the town centre and markets. The local Helsinki dining experiences were good especially Emo. A brief introduction to Helsinki and local knowledge shared by our guide was reasonable. Unfortunately, the Lapland component of our tour was misrepresented which did not take into account seasonal variations to the advertised brochure. The tour was lack lustre and had too much individual time. There easily could ...read more have been more touring and places of interest included. At no time was our guide at fault; she went beyond the call of duty to make at least one day memorable for our group. Fault with this tour lands in the lap of Collette who sold an expensive tour which did not deliver.
I went in October. Not the best time of the year as it was cold and wet! Big group of 46 but our tour leader (firm, direct and friendly) handled everything very well. We had a very cheerful (always had a smile on his face), safe and skilled driver. Scandinavia is wonderful; clean fresh air, refreshing drinkable tap water, green rolling pastures, amazing sights and scrumptious seafood (plenty of salmon - I love salmon!). We all got on very well with lots of fun and laughter despite the huge age difference ...read more and fellow travellers from many different countries. I would travel with Cosmos and book through Global Journeys again.
“Iceland and Northern Lights”
We would recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see what Iceland has to offer. We saw some amazing scenery and were fortunate to see the lights even though it rained every day. Our guide was a bit too laid back, disorganised and even bought her granddaughter to our meet and greet meal which we thought was a bit unprofessional. The accommodation in Vik is 7 minutes out of town and set up like a summer camp with dormitory style bedrooms away from the reception and restaurant area. Meals were served ...read more buffet style and offered a large variety of tasty options. Be warned that everything in Iceland is very expensive to buy.
