Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their journeys to South East Asia

Vietnam and Cambodia Highlights   , WA, Australia, Sep 2023
Trip was fine, APT typically provide great service and support. River component a little long and some short tours repeated. Global Journey's support was excellent.
Packed full Borneo Adventure     , NSW, Australia, Jul 2023
Very full itinerary with river cruises, trekking in night and day, and watching turtles start their swim to the ocean. Did love the Orangutan and Sun Bear Sanctuary that was a great day. Chose this tour as the itinerary included all I wanted to do and it did not disappoint. Well run by helpful CEO and great group of people to share it with.
Very Vietnam - amazing trip!     , Australia, Jul 2023
If you go on this trip (hosted by On The Go) with Kien the tour guide, you are in for one hell of a holiday! The activities, locations, transport and hotels are all hand picked for comfort, ease of getting around, location to attractions and amenities! Top activities - - Halong Bay!! Luxury junk boat, spectacular environmental setting, fine dining, ...read more water and cave activities, cocktails and sunsets, need I say more! Hoi An - possibly the most beautiful place I have seen, particularly at night! Night markets, river cruises under lantern lit skies, local shopping and a luxury resort! You HAVE to do the Vespa street food add-on, it was my favourite activity of the whole trip! Vietnam in general was so much more then I expected. It's beautiful country and people, and needs to be experienced! We went in July, it was hot but do-able and quieter then peak time. But if you HATE the heat, go at a cooler time of year.

My recommendations. Book a couple days post-tour to chill out in your own time. You see the entire of Vietnam in 10 days, your going to want to chill after and have some sleep ins. Be prepared for your days to be packed full of activities! There is free time, but your not going to want to miss out on any thing so be ready to hussle at times! Book ALL the add-ons. Every single one of them is worth it. And the Cu-Chi tunnel extra day! It's mind blowing. The Hue Express train is an experience! It's not luxury but it's perfectly fine! Just pack your own TP, wet wipes and snacks/drinks. Its a little cramped and be ready to get social with your cabin buddies, but if you wake up at 5am at sunrise the view out the window is worth it all! KMs of mountain valleys and rice paddies, it's spectacular.

You will be fed more then you expect and way fancier then you expect! If you are worried about fending for yourself at any point, Kien has recommendations and will assist you getting around safely. Highly recommend travelling with Kien the tour guide if you can request, you will be completely spoilt! He goes above and beyond for every minute of the day, take all his recommendations! and follow all his tips and you will have an amazing time!
Best of Java Tour really was the BEST!   , VIC, Australia, Jun 2023
Our G Adventures trip really did exceed expectations! Our CEO Panji was a 10/10 tour guide who went above and beyond in many different ways. Java was a complete unknown before we went but turned out to be a real gem. The highlights are too many to mention but here are a few: Homestay in Ndgas, 2am sunrise trip in 4x4s to see view towards Mt Bromo, walking ...read more the Sea of Sand and climbing to the rim of Mt Bromo, our meals on authentic Indonesian places, and meeting 10 other wonderful travellers! Booking through Global Journeys was very easy and Tracey was always helpful and efficient.
