“Met all my expectations and was good value for money”
- Australia Jan 2011

This was the 2nd tour I have booked for a group of travellers to NZ through Global Journeys. Once again your friendly, professional and efficient service made the process very easy from the very first contact with Georgina. Our tour and was well organised with great accommodation, meals and included sightseeing. Overall it met all my expectations and was good value for money.
