Southern Italy   , NSW, Australia, Feb 2020
The whole process was great. Jemma is a gem. She was extremely helpful right from our first contact. Silvio the tour guide was sensational. His local knowledge was incredible and much appreciated. Included meals at hotel were only average. Cold eggs and meats at breakfasts were disappointing. Overall we are very happy with the tour and will recommend more it to to others.
Touring the south of Italy   , NSW, Australia, Nov 2019
Great tour of Sicily with a very professional Tour Guide and most experienced bus driver. Stayed at very comfortable and clean hotels with breakfasts included. Tour included visits to famous sites as well as passage through rural areas with olive groves and citrus orchards and great eating experiences. The tour could have included an archaeological more museum or two. On the whole a very enjoyable experience.
Southern Italy, Sicily and Malta tour     , NSW, Australia, Oct 2019
The tour leader in Italy was average, the Malta tour leader was excellent. The hotels in both Italy and Malta were generally disappointing. However the locations in Italy were breathtaking as was Malta. The highlights were staying in a Trulli house in Alberobello and in a cave house in Matera - these were the only good accommodations in the entire tour. more Tour pace was hectic and rushed but there was enough free time if you didn't do every optional excursion. Global Journeys were excellent, providing good documentation and reminders. I would definitely use them again.
Great organisation     , NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
We were so impressed with the booking experience with had with Yvonne Brooks from Global Journeys for our Bunnik tour to Southern Italy and Malta. If you are interested in Ancient history this was an ideal tour. There were 18 Australians in our group. All were well travelled. The highlight was Alberobello and Matera. We added 2 extra nights at the end more so had 6 nights in Malta which was fabulous. 2 hotels were changed at the last minute and their location was not as ideal. The other hotels were in central locations. We travelled in early September and it was hot and humid. Any questions we had were answered promptly and our requests professionally handled. We would definitely recommend them and hope to book future tours with Global Journeys again.
