Wonderful tour through northern Italy and Switzerland     , ACT, Australia, Sep 2022
This trip to me was classic Backroads Touring - visiting a mix of smaller places particularly in Italy with great experiences which you wouldn’t think to do yourself or couldn’t do with a larger group, and a mix of iconic railway journeys with lake and mountain vistas in Switzerland. We had a very small group with a great tour guide who got to know ...read more our group’s interests and with the driver, was able to make minor itinerary adjustments to make the tour even more special.

Highlights in Italy included visits to a small Grana Padano cheese factory (and sampling), a boat trip in Lake Iseo and hike to the church at the top of Monte Isola, and a cooking lesson and wine tasting in the Franciacorta region. In Switzerland, highlights were the trips on the Bernina and Glacier Express train trips, the bus trip over the Sustenpass and the cogwheel train trip above Brienz. A great way to experience these parts of Europe - with some unique moments along the way.
Glorious   , Florida, USA, Sep 2022
Both trips with Insight and our river cruise with Uniworld were excellent. The accommodations with Insight were outstanding and the tour director did an excellent job. Uniworld crew did a superb job and all meals on board were world class.
Hassle free walking in a beautiful part of the Swiss Alps     , ACT, Australia, Sep 2022
This was a self guided tour based in Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. This was my first self guided walking trip so I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but the operators (Exodus with Headwater) made it as hassle free as possible. Great hiking route notes and a GPS map for each hike we’re provided before departure. On the evening ...read more of arrival in Kandersteg, the hotel operator gave an overview of the week and provided additional hard copy maps and ideas of how we might like to tailor the week to suit our preferences, weather conditions etc.

The accommodation and meals were good, with buffet breakfast, dinner and a lunch station set up each morning to enable us to make a sandwich and grab a piece of fruit to take for lunch. The walks were varied, with a mix of walking from the town and taking a chairlift, mini-bus or local train up to the start of the hike. The instructions were great, paths are well signed and the GPS map helped if you still weren’t sure of which direction to head. Overall a great way to walk in the Swiss Alps - the prep work is done and you just have to decide which walk you want to do on which day. Kandersteg is also a beautiful spot, a small resort village in a stunning setting.
Best of Austria and Switzerland     , QLD, Australia, Jul 2022
This trip really showed the best of Austria and Switzerland in the allocated length of the trip. Tracey at Global Journeys was great to deal with with all questions answered. Loved the tour! Our guide was very approachable and informative, bus driver was fun with great driving skills, accommodation was also good. Only small issue was the older ones ...read more on the group did not like a shower over the bath as it was sometimes a bit difficult for them. Not all accommodation had this and I know it’s unavoidable.

Included tours are a must! I did all of them and was not disappointed. The group consisted largely of American tourists with a small group of us Aussies. Some highlights were going up the Matterhorn, going on the Glacier Express, seeing a bear swimming in Berne (the guide and driver had never seen this before - they missed it this time as well!), concert in Vienna, Mirabell Gardens, Zermatt, a car free town and visiting the church where the wedding took place in Sound of Music! Loved Lucerne as well. I chose to stay and extra night to go and visit the Jungfrau which was great. I also added a few extra days in Zurich and used the train to visit some extra places like Stein Am Rhein and the Rhein Falls. I would highly recommend this Globus Tour.
