What our clients are saying about their journeys to New England
“Spoilt from start to finish”
My husband and I have just returned from our first Luxury Gold trip - New England's Magnificent Autumn - and I can't rate highly enough the way we were all made to feel so special. Mitch our 'travelling concierge' and Mike our driver couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. We were a small group of nine fellow travellers on a smaller coach with plenty of room, coffee machine and snacks. Nothing was rushed and we got to see the most magnificent Autumn colours that you could ever have hoped ...read more for. Plenty of included meals and private tours which made for a great trip. We felt like family at the end of the 10 days. Particularly enjoyed the dine with locals experience in New York. Couldn't fault Luxury Gold and look forward to travelling with them again.
“Fall foliage on the Classic New England Tour”
In mid-October we saw the Fall foliage in all its glory. The national parks of Acadia and White Mountains were highlights but the roads generally were lined by swathes of red, yellow, brown, pink - wonderful. The Globus tour guide, Nancy was excellent with lots of stories and history and she handled any tricky moments with tact and kindness. Our driver Jeff was also superb and willing to go the extra distance to ensure everybody was catered for. The hotels were all of good standard. Perhaps the first ...read more one, Comfort Inn in Boston, was basic and in an unattractive area but it was OK for overnight. If the foliage is not in place, and unless you are interested in hunting or fishing, I would not recommend these states as a travel destination. Bar Harbour, where we spent two nights, was very interesting but other towns like Bangor, Smithfield and Battleboro do not seem to have much for the tourist. Newport in Rhode Island was well worth the visit. The tour finished in Boston where the traffic seems to be in semi-permanent gridlock. A 1 1/2 hour city tour in the bus was not satisfactory. A step-on guide talked on but it was difficult to see out of the bus - one needs an open-top bus for such a tour. I would prefer to have this activity deleted and finish earlier.
“Breathtaking Fall Foliage in New England”
Travelled on 1st October 2019 with Cosmos Classic New England Tour. Perfect timing as foliage was at its peak, it was even more spectacular than I imagined. I loved the small towns, their hospitality and shopping. It was even better because of the Pumpkins and Halloween decorations which were everywhere. This was the 4th Cosmos Tour I have taken but unfortunately the Tour Director on this Tour, Penny Harrington, had no idea how to do her job, had no organisation skills and obviously had no real experience ...read more and most travellers were very disappointed with her management of the tour. We still had a great time.
“Amazing Tour Through the New England Fall Foliage ”
Another seamless booking through Global Journeys, another 5 Star experience using Trafalgar Tours. The Autumn Colours tour through New England was easily one of the best trips I have ever done. Trafalgar is an excellent operator; their itinerary took us through quaint and charming towns and we saw the most incredible, picturesque views of the autumnal colours of their 'fall' season. The accommodations were all excellent - wonderful locations, superior rooms, and the meals were delicious. Our tour ...read more director, Dave, was very friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about every area we went to; his commentary was diverse, including information about the history, culture, architecture and unknown facts and trivia. For the service, the accommodation and the experience - this tour was worth every cent. We all agreed we would do this exact tour again. Our only negative was how short it was - 8 days just wasn't enough and everyone on the bus agreed we would like it to be at least 12 days - there is just so much to see and experience in that region. This was my fifth booking through Global Journeys and they proved yet again why I don't want to book through anyone else. Hannah responded to all of my emails promptly and nothing was too difficult; she made the booking so quick and easy. Like Trafalgar, the service and cost of booking through Global Journeys is what makes me a repeat customer and is why I will continue to use them in the future.
